Its amazing what kids are doing these days.

Why wait through years (and several versions of cheap, floppy youth skis) of 'growing time' to help your kid learn the fundamentals of the sport on a legit 'grown-up' ski platform? The Volkl Kids' Shiro Jr Ski completely agrees with you--there's no reason to wait. Boasting a top-shelf tech design of full-rocker and a wood core--all in manageable size, the Shiro Jr Ski takes and teaches your child well beyond where his past 'youth' skis have. Just say 'follow me' and you'll be surprised.
  • Multi-layer wood core creates a smooth, dependable flex pattern
  • Full rocker profile, or Volkl's ELP, rises above the light and white, and lays a solid line on hardpack with surprising ease
  • cap construction keeps things lightweight and manageable

The real deal

These are real rockered skis and fat at 100mm under foot. My 8 year old really is enjoying these. A lot of kids/youth skis are the same beginner/intermediate platform with a different top-sheet. Volkl with the Gotamas and the Shiros seem to be taking kids more seriously... thank you!

Wondering how your child likes these versus the Gotama Jr. I am considering the Shiros for my 9-year old daughter as her all-mountain/powder ski. The Gotamas look a little skinny but I am not sure if the Shiro at 100mm would be too fat for regular use - outside of big powder days. How did the length work out? 143cm might be a little long for an 8/9 year old.

My daughter got the Gotama when she was 11 and skis the whole mountain, including double blacks with them. We didn't try the Shiros, but the Gotama were never too skinny. We got her the next size up of the Gotamas too.

When you think about the width of a child's foot versus an adult foot riding a 100mm, it is pretty dramatically different. An 80 waist that looks skinny in a store is going to be probably the equivalent of at least an adult's 110 waist when you put it on a child. Just my opinion, but I got the Gotama Jr. 80 waist for my 7 year old as his daily driver. We live in Park City and ski three days a week, all season, all conditions. He is an advanced skier, prefers double blues and blacks and moguls. I have no doubt he could ski the Shiro, but he is too young (or I am too cheap) to buy him a ski exclusively for powder days, and I think the Gotamas will be a lot more fun and nimble, day in, day out.

I agree the Gotamas are great. My son is skiing on a pair this year and they're great for all conditions at Whistler. We bought the Shiros for my daughter, since she already has a pair of race skis for firm conditions. I'd go for the Gotamas for a good all round choice.
