We found that the Volkl Viola gave a pleasingly smooth ride on test whether taking it easy or gunning it, and it's nice to see a ski designed specifically with safety in mind as far as female skiers are concerned.

The Viola has been re-engineered for this year, with a totally flat binding interface and no 'ramp' at the heel , which apparently helps avoiding twisting backward falls that can lead to knee injuries ( 70% of knee injuries are amongst female skiers).

Volkl have also readjusted the flex and shifted the emphasis to the front of the ski, making it easier to release out of the turn.

The end result is a ski that gives a very smooth ride and is responsive in short turns and at slow pace, but also holds it together at speed.

It's conservative in appearance and not massively lively but a good solid ski at a good price which is ideal for female skiers happy to just cruise around the mountain.
