Völkl Kiku (2009)

Völkl Kiku (2009)

(BEST IN TEST) The women-specific version of the Gotama, the Kiku plowed through powder and crud better than any other ski in the category. On chalky, steep terrain, testers praised its control and precision.

Props

Handles speed like a bobsled.

Gripes

Planklike feel makes it slow to react on short-radius turns.

Tester's Take

"Finally, a real big-mountain ski for women." -Suzanne Graham
