The ski in details
The racing machine for ambitious racers.
The Racetiger GS with 3D.Glass is available in 4 different lengths 170, 175, 180 and 185 cm. It comes with Titanium inlays, Speedwall Multi Layer woodcore, with extra-hard wood located just behind the sidewall. 69mm width under the foot, a pre-mounted rMotion2 binding with GripWalk compatibility and the quiet ride of UVO 3D round out the true World Cup sensations.
UVO 3D: UVO is the first freely rotating, vibration damper to apply cutting-edge vibration dampening technology in order to minimize disruptive ski vibration. The terrain below the ski inevitably generates vibrations, which in turn set the shovel into motion. This significantly disrupts the smoothness of the ski-ride, and makes it harder to hold an edge. The revolutionary UVO technology works against this, through proven dampening in the form of reduced vibrations in the horizontal and vertical directions as well as along the length of the ski.
3D.GLASS: Völkl’s development to furthermore improve overall ski performance and stability even in critical snow conditions. Compared to classic glass constructions the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the tip and in the tail area result in an increased edge grip and a more vivid rebound behavior in turns.
Tip Rocker: Only bends upwards in the shovel area, while the middle and tail of the ski feature a camber shape.
Multilayer Woodcore: The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around.
Race Finish: For a better grip in fast and tight turns the World Cup skis come with a special race finish edging. While the SL models feature 0,7° on the base and 87,6° on the side, the GLS models come with a 0,8° base and 87,6° on the side.
Base P-Tex 4504: A sintered, ultra-high molecular polyethylene base with an extremely high density. Besides a great wear resistance and perfect wax absorption the P-Tex 4504 is extremely fast and exclusively used on the top of the line and race models. The material has been upgraded with special additives to make it thermal and electro-conductive and proves its qualities with premium glide and maximum speed in races.
