Frontside Freestyle Ski
Bash 86

Where the Revolt 106 is a park/freeride hybrid that emphasizes all-mountain performance, the Bash 86 is closer to a traditional park ski you can take on the rest of the mountain. Next to the new Blaze series, the Bash 86 is one of the more rideable Völkl skis.

In sum, it’s by far the best park option that Völkl makes, and a reasonably dependable ski for the rest of the mountain as well.

The Bash is a good park ski, but it’s not quite sturdy enough for too much more than taking the occasional resort lap. Those looking for a more aggressive ride they can also lap the park with would be better suited with the Revolt 104.

But if you’re primarily interested in freestyle skiing and don’t need too much off-piste performance it’s a reliable option.
