Improved dynamics, less effort, easier turning and improved protection for the knee joint – that is BIO-LOGIC. The project was kicked off by a study showing that women are much more likely to injure their knees while skiing then men. Not because they ski differently, but because their anatomy reacts more sensitively to strains. Working closely with renowned doctors and athletes, our Attiva team succeeded in engineering BIO-LOGIC to improve the skiing experience while also cutting down on extreme strains. The knee is subjected to reduced stress levels, with more refined and balanced activation of the leg musculature.
Ever since carving was invented, edge grip has been vital. Precise hold has become the deciding factor in skiing as speeds and carving forces have increased. In order to optimise power over the edges, VÖLKL has developed the Double Grip principle: double height, double edge grip! The doubling of the Wood Core construction with a second wood core built up over the edges allows greater power transfer and stability and increases leverage. With Double Grip XTD, the additional wood core extends along the entire length of the ski. This makes the continuous flex of the ski rounder and more harmonious. The result is precise edge grip and reliable hold so you can carve your track through the snow at high speeds
For the XTD Wood Core, two complete, full wood cores run parallel down both sides along the ski’s full length. This design allows precise edge grip and stability at high speeds. Both XTD Wood Core and XTD Sensor Wood Core are the basis for VÖLKL’s Double GripXTD technology. In the women’s ATTIVA ski range, XTD Wood Core is also used in the ultra-light LT version.
