They say

We say

The new Fuego uses Völkl’s Bio-Logic system. This concept encompasses a raised toe binding, softer flex and a narrower tail of the ski that will place women in a more athletic, neutral position. This is a solid ski which feels bombproof through the turn at any speeds. Directly underfoot it feels very strong and definitely gave our testers confidence to wind the speed up to maximum. On the edge it has race like levels of grip and rewards strong accurate input from the skier. It is a fairly stiff, solid ski and is not as easy as some other skis have in this group. However, our testers loved it and many women will enjoy the high performance it can deliver.

Tester Comments

Amanda Pirie
Strong, solid and smooth through the turn at any speeds
Jo Jo O Brien
Reasonably stiff, nice and stable. Gives you fire under the feet
