“The flagship park ski for Völkl has gone through many names and phases”

The flagship freestyle ski for Völkl has gone through many names and phases over the last 10 years or so. Ledge, Wall and Step are just a few monikers that spring to mind. Now, if you’re really bored, challenge yourself to learn them all for an impressive party trick. In recent years, the Revolt has been the name of Volkl’s top freestyle ski range. And, what’s more, it’s a range that continues to get better and better.

Volkl Revolt 90 Build

The Revolt 90 is ski engineered and built ultimately for competition. However this doesn’t mean it’s boring, it just means it’s properly good, consistent and reliable. No matter what the conditions are doing, this ski will perform. The Revolt 90 and 84 were part of Völkl’s “built together” collaboration where riders, engineers and product managers worked together to design the perfect ski.

Phase four of collaboration is dedicated to competition with some of the top-ranked skiers in the world getting actual input into how the ski was constructed. The outcome of this is that if you want a ski that’ll do 2160s,  grind a few hundred miles, as well as perform butters and presses all over the place and still make it through to the end of the season, you might just have found it on this review page. 

Völkl has done everything in its power to ensure you know this is a slopestyle performance ski. They’ve even served up some pretty interesting character specifications, to underline it all in big red pen. 

  • All Mountain Performance 3
  • Powder Performance 5 (if you are looking for a more all-mountain ski and want to stay with Völkl have a look at the Revolt 95).
  • Landing Support 9
  • Balance in Rotations 10
  • Butter Support 10
  • Gliding Speed 10

The core of the ski is a light swing weight wood core. This approach reduces the weight from the tip and tail, and concentrates it in the middle to help you spin into the future. In turn, this provides a super stable base for landing those heavy tricks. You’ve also got light and playful tips for butters and presses if they’re your kind of thing. In addition to all that, Völkl has also chucked another side wall layer on the ski to boost durability and provide stability in hardpack conditions. 

Who Is The Volkl Revolt 90 For?

The Revolt 90 is a ski that is really suited to people who want to be riding in the park all day.  It is what they have been designed to do and they do a bloody good job too. You will of course have a great time riding out of the park on these, but if you’re looking for something to take on a powder day or shred the open-face gnar with your mates then I’d click the back button and keep on scrolling through the Ski 100.
