skier Alex's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"On piste I like the shorter slalom turns better than the longer turns, it feels more dynamic. As I usually ski all day long, I like my skis to be a challenge but not too stiff, so I can carve and cruise at the same time."
My favourite piste skis:
1. Stöckli Laser SX
2. Rossignol Hero Elite ST Ti
3. Stöckli Laser SL
To all my reviews
No vibes? One big vibe.
The Racetiger Speedwall SL UVO is a fantastic slalom ski that will give you the vibes by deleting them. UVO stands for Ultimate Vibration Object. It minimizes ski vibration in the tip. And wether you feel it consciously or not, in the end it saves you energy and makes steering even more precise. The Racetiger SL UVO is a tough stiff ski with a nice pop out of the slalom turns. If you want to ski aggressively on groomers with unlimited edge grip, this Völkl slalom ski will provide you with big vibe.
Challenging and demanding
A slalom ski like the Speedwall SL UVO is a continuous challenge. Although it forgives a bit, it asks for your attention at all times. Switching to sliding during a carve is still possible, but you must be in charge to tell them. As the SL UVO steers so direct, it gives you a secure and stable feeling. For recreational skiers like me, this is the top and the border of what is nice to ski all day. More sportive skiers which have some experience with slalom skis will love it. If you are looking at your first pair, it might be a bit too demanding. For me a 5 star rating for the Racetiger Speedwall SL UVO.
Völkl about the Racetiger Speedwall SL UVO
"The tiger shows his claws — the secrets behind this big cat‘s many trips to the podium are lightning-fast reactions and razor-sharp turns combined with maximum edge grip. Next to the integrated titanal, the tip rocker is featured with special rMOTION2 binding system, the UVO vibration killer and SPEEDWALL MULTILAYER WOODCORE sidewall for an even quieter ride and more performance.", says Völkl. Awesome slalom ski.
