  • With responsive feel, Völkl Chiara skis really excel when you're sticking just to the groomers, and if you find yourself going off-piste, they won't disappoint
  • Moderate 77mm waist provides nimble turning on hardpack; 123mm tips and 97mm tails offer enough surface area to allow off-piste exploration
  • Women-specific core is lighter and more flexible than comparable unisex skis
  • Even lighter for the 2012-2013 season, new featherweight wood core boosts maneuverability, reduces knee strain and enhances endurance
  • Ready for smooth turns? Specialized construction increases grip and efficiently delivers power by placing reinforced materials over the skis' 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
  • 4Motion 11.0 TC bindings work in conjunction with the specialized construction to create superb edge hold and uniform ski flex underfoot
  • Integrated binding systems allow the skis to flex naturally and fully from tips to tails for smooth turn initiation, hold and release
  • 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
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
