Völkl Kuro - Alpine Skis: Reviews


Good for Powder
Our favorite powder ski, the Kuro just might redefine the class. Whereas most rockered skis are surfy by design, the Kuro effortlessly blasts through powder like a more classically shaped fat boy. Credit Völkl's Elongated Low Profile design—essentially less rocker in the tip and tail—which lets you put it on edge and power it through turns like a traditional ski. The result: They hold so well at the apex of the turn there's no longer a speed limit. Only caveat: You do have to bring the Kuro up to speed before it feels loose. 164/132/139; volkl.com
