Can touring skis also be used on the slopes?

Absolutely! In the last few years a lot has happened and our touring skis work very well on the slopes.

Although you should adjust your speed in icy conditions, our touring skis basically react similar to alpine skis. This means that you don’t have to adapt off-piste and you can simply keep your usual riding technique. The 3-radius concept of the Völkl alpine touring skis helps enormously and combines smooth turn initiation with easy ski control and sensational smoothness. That’s why alpine skiers on Völkl touring skis also feel immediately at home.
