The ski in details
The high-tech giant slalom racer
The Racetiger RC with tip rocker allows super-sporty long turns with lots of riding comfort. This fantastic combination is made possible by the integration of the UVO 3D, 3D.Glass, Powered by Steel and sidecuts with carefully aligned flex and tip geometries.
The UVO significantly dampens the vibration of the ski. The 3D.Glass construction features fibreglass layers that run three dimensionally over the ski instead of the usual horizontal-only webbing. This allows more pop as well as a sharp edge change and reliable edge grip.
The GripWalk-compatible vMotion 3 binding reliably transfers the full power from the boot to the ski.
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: 3D.GLASS is 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.
Full Sensor Woodcore: The full sensor construction features hard wood in the binding area but - contrary to the speedwall wood core - under the screws and in the outer areas a lighter wood. This results in a very sporty and agile skiing characteristics.
Powered by Steel: A steel layer in the ski provides very good durability, controlled flex and smooth skiing in faster speeds.
Full Sidewall / Mini Cap: Full sidewall construction with mini cap overlapping to provide best durability.
