    Volkl SC Question: 2023 vs 24 - anyone tried both and can lend some insight?

    Hi! I have a pair of 165cm Volkl SC Carbon from 2023 that I am enjoying in Ontario for freeskiing and coaching. Moved off race skis after a hip replacement. The 2023 is a great ski - very accessible, responsive, but I am feeling the delay in the 70mm underfoot. I'd like something a bit racer...

    Renoun Z90 vs Volkl RTM86?

    A friend of mine is looking for a front side focused all mountain carver. He's leaning toward the RTM86, but he's been eyeing my Z90s as well. I think the price tag might be holding him back on the Renouns. Anybody skied both and could provide a comparison?
