    The Volkl Racetiger is just about the highest-end slalom ski that a recreational skier can buy. These are beefy race skis, so don't be expecting a light ski or something you can take off-piste. This ski is meant to lay tight arcs in bullet proof ice. Don't expect to take it out for a leisurely cruise. This ski expects athletic form and skilled carving technique.

    The tip has Volkl UVO (Ultimate Vibration Object) that supposedly dampens vibrations for a quieter ski. Gimmick or real? We're not sure, but we have our doubts. One thing is for sure about the UVO device, it makes tuning the skis a pain. You need to be very careful passing them through a stone grinder, or the "device" will get caught in the way.

    I ski this as my beer league ski. The tight radius allows me to catch up with the gates if I get sloppy and fall behind. It's also a great ski to take out on a bullet proof day where tight turns on narrow, winding trails can be in order. A great carver for old-school New England trails.
