Revolt 124 Ski
The Revolt 124 Ski might be part of Volkl's freestyle collection, but it rebels against crowded terrain parks in search of more creative freestyling found on big mountains. The cliffs up there are bigger, the snow is softer, and the fallen trees are begging to be jibbed. At 124mm, this ski is the widest Revolt that Volkl makes, so it's undeniably a powder hound, but the rockered tip and tail have a twin tip shape that butters powder and maneuvers through the deeps whether you're riding switch or no. The twin tips are also tapered to ease turning in the soft stuff.
Volkl made the Revolt out of a multilayer wood core composed mostly of poplar for light, poppy feel, and denser beech wood holds better binding retention overtime. Carbon stringers amplify this ski's stiffness without adding much weight, and full sidewalls protect this ski's edges for long-lasting durability. Sidewalls also assist in power transmission when the powder is heavier than usual.
- Volkl's widest freestyle ski for cliff drops and playing in powder
- Full rocker twin tip floats deep powder riding switch or regular
- Multilayer wood core with carbon stringers for amplified stiffness
- Full sidewalls strengthens power transmissions for easier riding
Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
