The Völkl Yumi Skis offer lucky ladies a brilliant lightweight yet stable ride for ripping the entire mountain. This season, the Yumis get a small waist width update but remain the narrowest freeride option from Volkl with a dynamic tip and tail rocker co
At first it was just the Aura, then came along the Kenja, then for 2014 came the Volkl Yumi a more forgiving, narrower and softer flexing women's ski. Camber underfoot is key in skis that are this light for all-mountain applications, especially when skiing harder snow on the front side. The Yumi is a lighter weight construction than the Kenja and Aura, it also doesn't have a full sheet of metal in it – just a titanal band, mounting plate basically. Even though the Yumi lacks some of the heavier materials it is a fun and easy ski that even intermediates can hop on, it's only 84 mm in the waist -- should be no issue rolling the ski up on edge.
Reasons to go with the Volkl Yumi:
• You want solid all-mountain performance in a lightweight package.
• You stick to the groomers but wouldn't mind a powder day (Yumi's love powder).
• You've skied the Kenja and just want something a little softer.
• You're thinking about putting an alpine touring binding on a pair of skis. (Yumi is a great ski for an entry level touring ski)
• It's a women's ski, sorry guys, this ski isn't for you. (Aug 4th 2017 Update: The Kanjo is the mens version of the Yumi – enjoy)
The Yumi is fun, all this stuff below is a bunch of boring specs, call with questions we'll make it more fun.
