    Product Details

    Construction
    In the signature Extended Double Grip Construction, dual chambers extend from tip to tail, providing more support for the edges, and enabling the ideal distribution of pressure to the snow. enabling

    Core and Flex Pattern
    A female-specific Lightweight Extended Sensorwood core is custom-milled with a blend of poplar, beech, and balsa strips in an upward direction for exceptional power transfer without heavy weight. Female-specific binding mount location provides optimal flex so you’ll feel extra stable and secure as you crank up your speed. This skis heart is lively, stable and retains lightness that save you from hours in the gym in a vain attempt to be able to flex them. The Volkl AttivaTierra also posseses fine reserves of grip tolerance and should prove a most versatile ski for the adventurous advanced skier.

    Bio-Logic Concept

    The Volkl Attiva Tierra Skis are constructed with Volkl’s Bio-Logic system that focuses on flex, geometry, and stance: a slightly softer flex enhances the overall performance and comfort, while a narrower sidecut shape in the tail features a specific, progressive design that has a tighter radius in the front of the ski for easier turns and a longer turn radius in the back, and a more neutral stance created by raising the toe of the binding results in better balance between the muscles in the front and rear of the legs. Basically, this system ensures that you have the best possible ride with the least possible wear and tear on your body.

  • What size of ski should I buy?

    There are a lot of factors that can influence your ideal ski length. Getting on the right size ski is an important part of being comfortable and enjoying your time on the slopes. Using  the skier's height is a good starting point and taking things into consideration like weight, ability level, terrain, and even their personal style of skiing will help to narrow down your size range. For most people their starting point will land somewhere between their chin and nose. Remember, these are just guidelines, not rules. If you have a preferred size that you are comfortable on you can certainly go with that.

    Once you have established your starting point consider the following.

    Ability Level

    Beginner: If you are a beginner looking for a ski that is easy to maneuver and keep in control, consider sizing down 5-10cm from your starting point. This will usually put the ski at chin height or a little below. This is a common practice at resorts and rental shops as it helps to build the confidence and essential skills a skier needs to move beyond the bunny slopes.
    Intermediate: Are you an intermediate skier who has mastered the basics but is still progressing? Choosing a size that lands around nose height will give you the length needed for stability on intermediate terrain but keep the skis from being too unforgiving when mistakes are made.
    Advanced: By the time skiers reach an advanced level they usually have a good idea of what they need in a ski. A longer length is usually preferred as conditions become more demanding and the additional stiffness and stability are necessary. This will typically mean a ski length that is about forehead height.

    Skier Style

    Conservative: If you prefer to stick to the groomers a shorter ski may be for you. Keeping your turns short and going at a moderate speed means that a ski at, or slightly below, chin height would more suited to your style.
    Aggressive: For skiers that just wanna go fast. If you are spending most of your time skiing at high speeds on steep or technical terrain, selecting a size that is closer to forehead height or slightly above will give the added stiffness and stability that is needed for this style.

    Conditions

    Groomed: For skiers that spend a majority of their day on groomed, hard packed, or icy surfaces, going with a standard length is best. A standard length will keep the skis maneuverable and for that extra bit of responsiveness look for something with a normal to narrow waist width.
    Powder: When you spend a lot of time in fresh snow or off trail, a slightly longer ski will give you that extra bit of float to keep you moving through the deep stuff. You will  also want to consider a ski with a wider waist width that will also help you float and keep you on the surface.

    Weight

    If you are above or below the average weight for your height you should adjust your size accordingly. If you are above the average weight for your height you can consider a longer ski for added stability and response. If you are below the average weight for your height you can go with a shorter ski to get the flex and maneuverability you need.
