Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day* by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Description

An award-winning magic stick.

The Volkl Shiro is so good at so many things, it's tough to choose what exactly you want to do. It's happy to slash big, smeary turns down open faces, pivot through the trees, or rip big, deep, AK-style lines???just ask Ian Macintosh. But you should probably just do a little bit of everything. The Shiro's full rocker and wide dimensions???119mm underfoot, anyone????enable effortless floatation through the deep, and the multi-layer Sensorwood poplar and beech core keeps things light without making the ski feel flimsy. It's not the fattest ski in Volkl's freeride line???that honor goes to the Three???but it charges plenty hard, courtesy of a carbon-laminate Power construction and a Tough Box torsion box that enable to you put tons of energy into the ski without overwhelming it. In fact, if you ever feel like the Shiro isn't enough ski, you should probably quit skiing immediately, because you'll officially be the gnarliest dude ever to strap on a pair of planks.

Best All-Around Ski

It's hard to a find a ski that works the best on a powder day, you can ski on the worst possible snow and is playful enough to do spins and butters with. However, Volkl figured it out with this ski. I ski a 173 cm and I am 5'9. I use to ski the 183 in an earlier version of the Shiro, but I realized the 173 is perfect for me. I can ski fast and I still whip the skis around with flips and spins as much as I want.

If you were going to buy one pair of skis and ski 10+ days a year in fresh snow. This is the ski for you.

Versatile Ski for AK and Beyond

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Shiro is one of two skis in my quiver for heli-ski guiding in the Chugach of AK. This ski is my go-to when we have not had a recent refreshing of snow (even in Alaska this does occasionally happen). The Shiro is a very versatile ski for AK and beyond. It has floaty dimensions under foot and a rocker construction that stays planed up on the surface. At 119 under foot, this ski is no lightweight. However, the full rocker construction makes this ski very manageable, agile even. It skis like a solid Volkl, is playful, and has no problem with speed.

When the snow is deep and bottomless I prefer the Volkl Kuro (now being succeeded by the Volkl Three). In AK I use the Kuros a lot, back home in the Cascades not as much. But the Shiro is a versatile ski for all locales, from your home ski resort to AK.

Oh, and it skis firm snow just fine too.
