Völkl RaceTiger RC 2018

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

Don’t forget that ProSkiLab reviews a selection of the best skis on the market. This means that excellent skis can sometimes finish last. That's what happened to the Racetiger RC from Völkl, that has great qualities but was somewhat too "underpowered" to do well in this category. Despite its consistent and reassuring behavior, the ski is flexible and lacks responsiveness and bite. It’s still an excellent ski that would probably have done better in the "Top-of-the-Range" category. It’s a good choice for average to good riders looking for a ski that performs well, is consistent, easy and enjoyable to ride.

Review: Pros

  • User-friendly
  • Consistent
  • Good compromise between comfort/accessible/versatility
  • Smooth in soft snow
  • Skid and slide turns

Review: Cons

  • Performance falls a bit short
  • Lacks character and energy for this category

Manufacturer's remarks

The Racetiger RC is a very good long radius piste ski that will give consistent pleasure the whole day through on the piste. Thanks to the UVO technology, the ski is very comfortable and easy to handle. The new xMOTION binding by Marker also enhances energy transmission and has made the ski lighter, so it’s not tiring, even after a long day out on the slopes. UVO technology: this absorber reduces chatter while providing better ski-snow contact.
