Volkl Unlimited AC40 Carbon 2008
Big, powerful all mountain skis for big powerful skiers that would rather not ski the front sides or groomers. Lots of “float” and stable is built in but medium to long radius turns are obviously the default arc for the AC40.
Model: Volkl Unlimited AC40 Carbon (2008)
Size(cm) / Radius(m): 163/14.4 170/16.1 177/17.8 184/19.5
Manufacturer’s Description of the Volkl Unlimited AC40 Carbon:
"For good skiers who want to ski every possible condition the mountain can dish out, the AC40 has a layer of carbon fiber for additional liveliness. With Extended Sensorwood core, Extended Double Grip, and the Motion iPT system, the AC40 Carbon is quite probably the best-performing mid-fat system available in the market today."
The 177cm version made me glad we were in Vermont and had a couple of thousand feet of vertical to put the AC40 through it’s paces. They love to cruise and if you’re comfortable at the speed of light the ride is surprisingly quiet and smooth. Edgehold is good but a ski this wide gives up a bit in torsional stiffness (they would have to be ridiculously thick in order to resist twisting) so skiers spending lots of time on less snow and more hard pack should look to the AC30 or 20.
Okay, they’re fat and wide and fast, and maybe they don’t turn like a skate, but they are fun even on packed and “really packed” and they never feel heavy, which directs a lot of positives at Volkl. They’ve done what most thought was very unlikely and they made fatter skis that everyone can use.
If you only ski where the snow is too deep to walk around…get a pair of AC40s and head to your favorite big ski area. You won’t want to come home.
