WHAT'S THE BIG STORY FOR 2001?
"Our newest technology is called Energy Frame: two raised chambers running the length of the ski. The titanal topsheet is pre-shaped, and the core of the ski is
pre-stamped. It's a very expensive
process to make."
WHICH SKI ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS SEASON?
"The G-41 Pro is an evolution from our successful off-piste skis such as the Cross Ranger, Cross Carver and last year's G30. It has a fat 80-mm waist, so it won't be an eastern ski. It's designed as a total powder ski, but like most Volkls it skis well on hardpack."
