Freestyle-influenced All-Mountain Ski
Revolt 104

As displayed in the Revolt 121 above, Volkl occasionally likes to show off their rebellious side with this line of freestyle-influenced, all-mountain models. Where some may see this as a departure from their fairly traditional reputation, the Revolt line was built using direct feedback from the Volkl freestyle team and maintains the stringent integrity of construction you’d see in any other model. 

What sets the 104 apart from the rest of the series is its wide range of applicability. The Revolt 104 could very well be the only ski you own, provided you’re keyed into its nuances. It’s a soft, playful all-mountain option that would pair pretty well with hybrid touring bindings.

With deep and long rocker lines the Revolt 104 retains great float for a medium-waisted ski, almost wanting to turn themselves in powder. On days between storm cycles you’ll have no trouble slashing and jibbing your way around slough-up chop or sinking an edge into softer groomers.

The only place that the Revolt 104 falls behind the rest of Volkl’s all-mountain skis is on firm snow. Lacking the metal laminate reinforcement seen in the M6 Mantra and others in its category, things can feel awfully chattery on hardpack. If you don’t mind feathering your edges down icy slopes, the Revolt 104 delivers a fun, freestyle ride on the rest of the mountain.
