The Volkl Yumi 84 is designed and engineered to be an approachable ski for intermediate level skiers, but also something that will satisfy more accomplished, more advanced skiers. Volkl uses an impressive mix of technology in the Yumi 84. Their classic multi-layer wood core is supported by Glass Frame technology, which is lighter and has more of an energetic flex pattern than heavier Volkl skis that use Titanal Frame. We also get Volkl's 3D. Radius design. The tips and tails of the Yumi 84 have longer turn radii, with a tighter radius underfoot. This allows for different turn shapes and gives the skier the ability to even manipulate carving turn radius. By using longer radii in the tips and tails, Volkl also gives the Yumi 84 a more forgiving, less catchy feel in softer snow and more challenging terrain. The Yumi 84 also features an elongated rocker profile which really adds to its overall user friendliness and versatility. Not only does this rocker help provide a little bit of float when things get soft, but it allows the ski to pivot very easily for effortless short radius turns. Ladies, if you are looking for a superb, versatile all-mountain ski that feels right at home on groomers but can take you on some off-trail adventures too, then the Volkl Yumi 84 Skis will exceed your expectations.
