All-Mountain Freestyle Ski

See all pictures

Essentially the ideological opposite of the M5 Mantra, the Volkl Revolt 104 is one of the star contenders for our all mountain skis that shine in powder. The Revolt line was built using direct feedback from the Volkl freestyle team, and the 104 is a pared down model that performs well in most conditions. They belong to that heavily-rockered new generation that seem to turn themselves in deeper snow, you’ll have no trouble slashing and jibbing your way round anything softer than hardpack. 

These skis are extremely versatile, and for the right skier can be the perfect choice for an every day ski. They’re built as heartily as any other top quality ski, so much so that the weight can be tricky to rotate with if you’re not used to it. The consistent only issue that people have with them is that, due to the early rise, it takes some time for the edge to engage on frozen, freshly groomed slopes. 

The only noteworthy thing left to mention about this ski is the eye-catching topsheet. This year’s Revolt model is also available as a 121 under foot dedicated powder stick that the 104 is based off of.
