Skiers love the indestructible, crud-bashing, carbon-composite and wood-core combinations that make Volkl skis so popular. Originally founded by master woodworker Georg Volkl in the town of Straubing almost 100 years ago, the company has shifted from building horse-drawn carts to manufacturing some of the fastest skis in the world, ranging from giant-slalom thoroughbreds to full-rocker, powder-loving monstrosities.
