Volkl Charisma Skis with Bindings - Women's - 2012/2013 - $615.83

The high-performance Volkl Charisma skis with bindings are designed specifically for expert women skiers with all-mountain ambition. The Volkl Charisma skis with bindings really excel when you're sticking just to the groomers, and if you find yourself going off-piste, they won't disappoint. Women-specific core is lighter and more flexible than comparable unisex skis. Even lighter in for the 2012-2013 season, new featherweight wood core boosts maneuverability, reduces knee strain and enhances endurance. Wood cores extend upward to form the chambers of the Dual Extended Transmission sidewalls. Reducing chatter and enhancing stability, these chambers support the outside of the skis over the sidewalls and edges. Steel-laminate construction creates a torsionally rigid ski that powers through turns. Wide, stiff tips and narrow, soft tails enhance the natural motions of female skiers, ease turn initiation and conserve energy. Women-specific sidecut, designed to optimize the ski's flexed shape, contacts snow with an even pressure that yields incredibly smooth turns. Slightly rockered tips adds ease, smoothness and maneuverability to what are already unusually responsive skis. Motion internal Power Transmission (iPT) eMotion 11.0 TC bindings put the interface in the ski body, creating the most rigid connection of any Motion system to date. Integrated binding systems allow the skis to flex naturally and fully from tips to tails for smooth turn initiation, hold and release. You'll enjoy great responsiveness when putting the skis on edge thanks to the triple pivot Lady toe piece and the twin-cam heel piece. Binding placement sets stance 1cm forward to account for a woman's center of gravity and ease turning; stance can be adjusted by a qualified ski technician. Women-specific, Bio-Logic stance raises the toe of the binding to reduces strain on the skier's legs during turns. DIN range is 3 - 11. - $615.83
