The Volkl Gotama is a beast on the mountain constructed to blast over powder from the inside out: a dual-layer sensorwood core and spring-steel innards lend flex and ‘flyability’ while a slick fiberglass finish and wide girth lets speed demons blast over powder. The pure size of the Gotama makes skinning up the slopes a breeze for backcountry skiers. And even though it’s made to ride the deep pow, the Gotama performs very well on even hard pack. Engineered for power performance, Volkl has made the Gotama the big-mountain ski adrenaline junkies dream about.
Freeriders love the way the Gotama handles big-mountain conditions, and say the wide side cut actually grips better with a little wear. Deep powder is no match for the Volkl Gotama, they say, and a re-designed tail tip offers a smoother ride than previous models. The award-winning Volkl is said to be the must-have ski for die-hards, and responds accurately and precisely to expert techniques. Though it can be ridden on the hard pack and groomers take the Gotama to the "dark side" of the mountain to realize its true potential. A fun ride for the expert that’ll catch stares from the competition, the Volkl Gotama is the ski you have to buy this year.
