Description

Don't mind the gap.

When the day calls for a little bit of powder skiing in the morning, some groomers around lunchtime, and an afternoon session in the park, strap on the Volkl Bridge Ski and quit wasting time thinking about what to do. As the name suggests, the Bridge is made to handle everything on the mountain, with a fully rockered profile to surf through powder and cruise over bumpy terrain, a poppy poplar-and-ash core to boost in the park, and Volkl's Power/Tough Box construction to power down big lines without feeling squirrely. At 95mm underfoot, it's big enough to float but small enough to be nimble, with a torsion box, vertical sidewalls, and a fiberglass and composite laminate that let you push the speed limit on big terrain.

While ash underfoot is nice and stiff for control and improved binding retention, the poplar is located in the tip and tail to provide loads of pop when you're jumping off things in the park or the middle of your line. And, while the Bridge is fully rockered, the sidecut matches the rocker profile so you have all the edge contact you need to rail groomers and handle hardpack with ease. Smooth, playful, and powerful, it's a quiver of one that just won't quit.

  • Full rocker profile
  • Multi-layer poplar and ash core
  • Power/Tough Box construction (torsion box with vertical sidewalls)
  • Fiberglass and composite laminate

Here's what others have to say...

I'm having a hard time on making my first ski purchase!

I'm 6'2", 190 lbs. Level 7. I ski mostly front side, starting to get into the trees and I want to start exploring the back side of the mountain this year. I really am all over the place; I just moved near the mountains so my ability level is increasing quickly with the amount of days I'm able to ski now.

I live in Colorado near Summit County, so I get a decent number of powder days. I don't ski park but I'd like to start playing around with skiing backwards and maybe have a little edge in the trees/moguls.

Would this be a solid all-around ski for someone of my ability?
I think the fattest I've skied on is a Kendo or E88's and I wasn't too happy with how they performed in the deeper stuff or in the trees.

Length recommendations? Any recommendations?

Thanks!!

Hey Taylor,
This would be a great all mountain ski to progress your skills with. This ski will ski all conditions from hardpack to crud, and powder well. The full rocker will help this ski to float well in the fresh stuff, while the 95mm waist will still allow the ski to transfer from edge to edge quickly.

This ski would ski well in the trees and bumps and would feel best in an open bowl with lots of fresh snow. The size that would work best for you would be the 187cm. With full rocker this ski will ski slightly shorter than a traditional camber ski so you will be able to turn it quickly, making it a great all mountain learner.

Some other skis to consider would be the Moment Tahoe ski. That ski would offer similar dimensions and has rocker in the tip and tail to help it float well in pow. It would be a little better ski than the Bridge for skiing switch and for park riding. You would need the 186 in that ski. Another awesome ski to consider would be the Line Blend ski. That ski has a little rocker in the tip and is traditional camber down to the twin tail. It would ski the park well and would ski all over the mountain just as well. It is also the widest option and would float well in the pow. And finally you could check out the Salomon Rocker2 100. That ski also uses rocker tip and tail to help it float well and has traditional camber underfoot to help it edge well on harder snow.

I am a little bit over 5'4 but I am hitting my growth spurt, and I was wondering whether the 171 was going to be too big for me?

Hey Jonathan,
Depends on a few more factors! I wouldn't rule it out just yet.
How much do you weigh? Where are you planning on skiing mostly? Are you beginner, intermediate, or expert?
This ski has full reverse camber as well as twin tip, so it your effective edge is shortened. I am 5'5 135lb and I ski the 171 as my all mountain ski.
