“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.
