Product Info

The Katana is back. One of Völkl's most legendary skis of all time, the Katana signified everything an old school ripper wanted out of their skis. They were heavy, they were damp, they were fast as hell and far from user friendly. For the last few years, Völkl has subbed out the metal beasts for an excellent but lightweight V-Werks version. This year, however, the big bad blade has returned in the form of the Völkl Katana 108 Skis. The new Katana 108 features a slightly slimmed down waist and all the latest tech from Völkl: a 3D radius sidecut, carbon laminated tips, and a Titanal frame around the wood core, making it a bit more nimble and versatile than OG metal-sleeved bombers. But the Katana is still about what it's about. It's one of the biggest burliest skis you can get your hands on. It crushes chop and chunder and rips figure 11's with no hint of a speed limit. Rippers rejoice.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip & Tail RockerBends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.

Sidecut

3D Radius SidecutThree radii in one ski shape deliver maximum versatility - long radii at the tip and tail for stability and smoothness, and a short radius in the mid-body allows the skier to switch from long arcs to short turns at will, at any speed.

Core

Multilayer WoodcoreThe combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it.

Laminates

Titanal Power PlateA thin Titanal layer (0.3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski. This way the binding screws offer reliable hold even in the toughest conditions.

Titanal FrameA Titanal Frame with a thickness of 0,7 mm is integrated along the sidewall and into tip and tail area of the ski. This way the ski provides the stability and dampening that every experienced skier expects, at the most critical spots on the tip and tail of the ski. A second thinner Titanal layer (0,3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski.

Carbon TipsTip material layup for high reliability/stability at the lightest possible weight.

Sidewalls

Full SidewallDirect and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.

Base

P-Tex 2100A sintered high-density and high molecular weight polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
