The Speedwall L offers high-end carving performance in a recreational ski with a GS-like sidecut (18.6 meters in the 176 cm length). It’s sold as a system ski only, with two binding choices: 16 or 12 DIN. Volkl’s Code series incorporates race-bred performance and construction in three recreational models built for high-speed carving precision and performance on firm, flat snow. All models feature Volkl’s Power Construction: full wood cores, vertical sidewalls for edge grip; internal torsion box construction for positive tip and tail edge engagement. The two top models, Speedwall L and Speedwall S, are metal reinforced. All models borrow the Speedwall technology from Volkl’s Racetiger race skis: high-density sintered base material is used to construct the sidewalls, so they’ll hold wax just as the bases do. Moderate tip and tail rocker makes the Code skis significantly more forgiving than the true race skis, but they’re still built to have plenty of power.
