Racetiger GS

Introduced in 1970 as the Renntiger, no other Völkl epitomises performance and success quite like the Racetiger. If you love super-fast, long turns with plenty of pressure on the edges, there’s not really any alternative.

 

The Racetiger GS features Tailored Carbon Tips for the first time this coming season. Tailor-made carbon fibres allow the ski to be adapted to exactly the things it’s going to be used for. The strength and alignment of the fibres define the force you need to apply and the energy that builds up in exactly the right places, which means agile shovel reaction with a precise response the moment you initiate a turn. When you steer it, the new GS feels ultra-precise and controlled, and you need less power to do so.

 

Its new characteristics are due to a discreetly shortened and flattened tip rocker and, most especially, its changed geometry, whose radius has been reduced by two metres. A narrower waist means more dynamic skiing and faster edge changes. Not only that, but the Racetiger GS is now available under 170 cm long – 168 cm to be precise.

 

All this is perfectly rounded off by 3D Glass, two full layers of Titanal and our renowned multilayer wood core, as well as our new R-Motion 3 GW binding. A shortened plate combined with a wider hole pattern delivers stronger, more direct power transmission and helps you switch edges quicker. The real highlight, however, is that the two rear screws are no longer fixed, allowing the binding to slide freely and the ski to move harmoniously through the entire line of the bend, giving more edge grip without blocking.

Tailored Carbon Tips

In this innovative manufacturing process the new Tailored Carbon Tips are produced by embroidering the individual carbon fibers onto a carrier material. The stiffness, torsion and thus the skiing characteristics can be specifically adjusted via the fiber thickness and millimeter-precise alignment. In this way, the fibers guide the dynamics to the areas of the ski where they are needed. The visibly integrated Tailored Carbon Tips are light, allow an agile shovel reaction with less effort and quickly build up energy. The Tailored Carbon Tips thus reach a new level of precision, direct tip response and active skiing pleasure.

3D.Glass

3D.GLASS is Völkl’s development to furthermore improve overall ski performance and stability even in critical snow conditions.

Compared to classic glass constructions the three-dimensional and multiple-folded glass layers in the tip and in the tail area result in an increased edge grip and a more vivid rebound behavior in turns.

A sintered, ultra-high molecular polyethylene base with an extremely high density. Besides a great wear resistance and perfect wax absorption the P-Tex 4504 is extremely fast and exclusively used on our top of the line and race models. The material has been upgraded with special additives to make it thermal and electro-conductive and proves its qualities with premium glide and maximum speed in races.
