EXTENDED SENSORWOOD CORE
Created in a complex CNC milling process, the Extended Sensorwood Core is ‘extended’ upward and lengthwise, milled to form the chambers of the Dual XTD Transmission construction. The material is a blend of poplar and beech wood, and is found in Völkl’s highest performing models.
Like the Extended Sensorwood Core, the Sensorwood core is CNC milled using vertically laminated poplar and beech wood.
A central member surrounded by PU, Wood Core provides stable, lively skis to improving novice and intermediate skiers.
EXTENDED WOOD CORE
The Extended (XTD) Wood Core is used in XTD Progressive constructions. More forgiving than the Extended Sensorwood Core, it consists an solid central section that extends toward the tip and tail.
DUAL WOOD CORE
As the name suggests, The Dual Wood Core consists of parallel strips of wood surrounded by PU. Featured in the XTD Progressive construction, it is layered with extra glass sheets top and bottom for added ski rebound.
XTRA LIGHT CORES
In the new V-Werks and Essenza series, along with the Backcountry series, our Xtralight wood cores are created using lighter weight Pawlonia material, along with channels milled out of the bottom of the core. Snappy and resilient, these hight tech wood cores save weight while improving performance.
MULTI-LAYER WOOD CORE
Völkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core with two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates secure screw retention and stability, while the softer poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern can be tailored to each ski model to match the desired performance characteristics.
