Völkl cares!

 

As passionate athletes and individuals, we are active in nature and experience the threats to our living spaces firsthand.

As a passionate winter sports brand, we produce high-end products for use in nature. This requires first and foremost an intact, natural environment. We all live from nature and anything that threatens the environment therefore threatens us as well – both as individuals and as a company.

We know that we – like other industrial firms – leave behind traces in the environment. Yet we don't simply accept this as a given.

We have been working on improvement initiatives for years to reduce our footprint step by step.

The brand new Cashew is an innovative backcountry freestyle board, it also represents an important step towards sustainable and ecological manufacturing. Instead of aplastic topsheet, the Cashew features a tear-proof hemp/linen topsheet. 80% of the sintered base is made of recycled material while flexible wooden sidewalls replace the conventional ABS plastic ones. We used recyclable steel for the Cashew's edges and as little resin and other toxicological materials as possible, which means that we have cut down on the use of resources but not of technology and know-how! A unique combination of a directional sidecut, Rocker Shape and Convex Powder Base provides incredibly playful riding behaviour as well as maximum flotation in powder snow. An integrated Shock Absorber makes the board super stable for huge jumps too. The ultimate package for backcountry and park ventures and at the same time, for a better future!
