Volkl Kiku (2012)

Volkl Kiku (2012)
Gold Medal Gear
Rank: #1 In Deep Snow
3.52
Tester's Review

The damp and stable Kiku has reclaimed her throne, becoming Queen of the Deep once more. Its gradual rocker purrs through pow yet doesn't detract from Volkl's traditional ground grip everywhere else. When it comes to crud, it doesn't skim over as other rockered boards do: It beams right through. The Kiku rules with a heavy hand, though, pulverizing what lies in its path. It's impatient with learners, too. "Find your center and point it," said Humes. "This is a powerful women's ski."
