Völkl Katana (2008)

Völkl Katana (2008)

Vertical sidewalls and two sheets of titanium provide power to punch through variable snow, without making the Katana too stiff for fluff.

Props

Nimble enough for tight spots; stable enough for bombing bowls.

Gripes

Hard to tell if the semi-swallowtail actually helped sink the tails in powder.

Tester's Take
