THE VERDICT

The lightness of the Volkl V-Werks Code, combined with its damp feel and penchant for speed, means you can use this ski to carve hardpack all day. Its lack of liveliness and pop underfoot make it more appealing to technical skiers with a very strong, precise turn shape.

FULL REVIEW

Built with Volkl’s Full Sensor Woodcore xtraLIGHT, the V-Werks Code has an almost ethereal lightness that has to be skied to be believed, which when paired with a Titanium Sidewall, creates wonderfully damp full snow contact. Stable, with good stability and edge hold, this ski loves to go fast.

The Code is not lively underfoot, and doesn’t create a lot of energy for people who prefer a ski with pop. It’s also on the high end of the cost spectrum, best recommended for people who want to invest in a Cadillac smooth ride anywhere there’s hardpack.
