Reviewer DellaSausa

"I like to ski at high speed. Giant slalom skis are made for me. Stability is very important. Slalom is nice for shorter work when necessary. Like at the end of the day on icy bumpy pistes. Allround piste skis should be damp but not too comfortable."

To all my reviews

 

Only one gear: high


The Völkl Racetiger Speedwall GS UVO is for those recreational skiers that want monstrous speed on every prepared slope. You know how that goes, buckle up on top and let go till you see the bottom of a lift. The UVO on the tip of the skis kills vibration which only lifts the feeling of being in control. And so the acceleration goes on and on. Nice element that UVO thing as it takes longer for the legs to start complaining. Like most Völkl Racetigers this Speedwall GS UVO fits me, not only fine but near perfect.

Edge grip and stiff

Giant Slalom skis like the Speedwall GS UVO are so stiff that you need to know what you are doing. Nothing to forgive is its mentality, so pick it if you are either fit and/or well skilled. For most other recreational skiers the continuous edge grip and acceleration is simply no fun. Fellow tester Alex can tell you more about that. Sliding turns is possible though, but not without effort. Going slow is possible too, but without comfort. Go full power to keep control or you'll be at this Racetigers mercy.

Völkl about the Racetiger Speedwall GS UVO

"Völkl‘s 'beer league' race skis feature the Speedwall 2.0 wood core, with extra-hard wood located just behind the sidewall. With a wide footprint, rMotion2, and the quiet ride of UVO, this versatile GS ski offers category leading smoothness at speed.", says Völkl. True.
