2022 Volkl Flair SC Carbon Women's Skis with VMotion 11.0 Al GW Bindings
Volkl Flair SC Carbon Skis with VMotion 11 ALU GW L Bindings
High performance carving is this ski's bread and butter. If you like quick precise turns with unwavering stability and edge hold, the Volkl Flair SC Carbon is the ski for you. This ski is best suited to firms snow and groomed terrain based on its shape profile and construction and would be a great addition to any quiver missing a high-end carving ski. Using a lite sensor wood core this ski stays fairly light yet responsive for a quick and agile feel between turns. Further enhancing that core is a 3D glass construction which integrates vertical glass and glass over the sidewall of the ski for more power, energy and snap. The Carbon laminate in this ski adds even more power to the core and provides a level of vibration damping for improved stability. The profile of the Flair SC Carbon is comprised of mostly camber with a bit of tip rocker and a flat tail. With this profile, you get easy turn initiation and tremendous power through the turn. Coming straight form the race room is Volkl's UVO system; an oscillating device placed on the top sheet of the ski which provides a heightened level of vibration damping, keeping the tip of the ski quiet and able to stay on its intended line. If you're looking for a smooth, stable, quick turning ski, you'll love the performance of the Volkl Flair SC Carbon.

I’m on the hunt for a new set of frontside carvers for my wife. For those icy, scratchy, frozen courdoroy days, she loves her 10 year old Volkl Tiara’s. Tiaras are 156cm, 78mm underfoot, 13m radius, all camber, two sheets of metal, vert sidewall. Super stable, very little chatter.
She has a pair of Kenja’s that she likes for newer,softer snow days, but says they are too chattery on the typical NE frozen stuff (we live in CT, ski all over NE).
So….she loves Volkls and these carbon sc’s look interesting, but I’m worried that there is no metal, and they might feel too ‘light’, and snappy due to carbon and no metal.
Any other suggestions for womens camber-only, metal sheets, sub 78mm width, frontside rippers?
I hear what you're saying about the carbon if you're looking for dampness and stability.
This one is a good choice: https://www.skiessentials.com/2021-fischer-rc-one-78-gt-ws-women-s-skis-w-rsw-10-gw-powerrail-bindings.html
Those are great skis and certainly comparable to the Fischers, we just don't have them in stock. Pickings are slim for mid to high-range women's frontside skis these days!
