They say

We say

The new V-Werks Code uses a mix of Carbon, Aramid and Titanium in its construction. This is an amazing ski which has been made with no considerations to cost. It uses the lightest, strongest materials available to deliver high performance. It looks fabulous, costs a fortune and yet still manages to deliver a performance which matches expectations. It’s surprisingly light for this type of ski, with a smooth and sensitive flex. This lulls you into thinking that it’s going to be a bit of a pushover. But once on the edge, it absolutely storms everything. In long turns it’s fast, smooth and has massive edge-grip. In short turns it’s reactive and quick on the edge. A great ski, which justifies the huge price tag.

Amazing ski - light yet can really be skied aggressively
Nicko Braxton
This delivers on every level and gives the skier what he wants, but it comes at a price. I would love a pair!
