A pow-hungry charger.
Want to play a fun game? Hop on the lift with some tough-guy strangers, spend the ride talking about kittens, cupcakes, and crocheting, and then take off like a rocket before they've even had a chance to buckle their boots and ask, "bro, is my camera on, bro?" Showing the wanna-be hotshots what's up is easy on Volkl Women's Aura Ski, a rippin' pow ski that's made for girls who like to rally. The Aura's a charger, made with Volkl's legendary torsion box construction and two layers of titanium surrounding the poplar-and-ash core for a killer combination of power, stability, and poppiness. The ash has been placed under the bindings for increased stiffness and binding hold, while the poplar in the tips in tails lays down a fun, snappy ride in all sorts of snow.
Of course, what use is a powder ski that can't float? No use, which is why Volkl made sure the Aura was pow-proven, with a fully rockered profile and 100mm waist that's designed to make short work of big dumps, day-after chunder, and soft springtime corn. Rockered skis are easy to turn and comfortable to ride in bumpy conditions, and the Aura also incorporates a tapered tip that makes turn initiation even easier, so riding at speed doesn't have be a no-turning experience. Of course, it's a Volkl, so you get killer edging performance even without camber, and a smooth, predictable ride that makes shredding chop as easy as surfing fresh champagne.
