The Volkl Revolt will be one of the best value skis this season for the beginner to solid intermediate skier that wants an all mountain twin tip. The Multi-Layer Wood Core has Ash in the binding platform that is denser to reduce the chances of pulling out your bindings, and provide some rigidity underfoot. Poplar wood is used on the rest of the ski to give you a rounded and easy flex with stability and a lightweight feeling. Volkl's Power/Tough Box Construction has a composite and fiberglass layer that gives the ski a snap to it that is really fun on boxes, rails, or jumps. Tip and tail rocker in the Revolt gives the ski a very playful feeling, easy turn initiation and exit, while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and rebound. The 95mm waist of the Revolt is perfect for stomping big landings, can easily tackle powder, and will blow through crud. If you are looking for a very well rounded all mountain twin tip the new Volkl Revolt will become your favorite ski.
