"BUILT TOGETHER!" The design concept of the Völkl Freeski Family goes into the fourth round! The complete Revolt Range was designed by Swiss illustrator Benjamin Güdel and the Revolt 96 replaces the Revolt 95. The development of the ski was a process over several years with different athletes and came to completion with the Norwegian Oysten Braten and the Völkl Freestyle Team around Tom Ritsch from Austria. The result is impressive in every respect. The tip & tail rocker ski with a new, modern sidecut is equipped with reinforced edges and modified flex zones meant to be ridden in the urban playground or in the park. Whether it's the stair railing behind the house, the rail in the park, or the kicker next to the slope, the Revolt 96 will give you enough pop and stability during take-off to raise your level up a notch.

Of course, the Revolt 96 also features the proven 3D Radius Sidecut and a full-length sidewall for top performance on hard, shaped surfaces. The ski is available in four lengths from 157 to a whopping 181 cm, so that even taller or heavier riders will find the right model for them.

Jake Renner tested this product
First impression of the Revolt 96, this ski shreds! I had a blast on it, light swing weight with full tip and tail rocker, bit of camber underfoot provides pop, while relatively firm flex rating holds your edge smooth even at higher speeds. A little bit of movement in the nose because of the tip rocker but it does hold... Read more
Ideal for
  • Pop underfoot thanks to the camber mixed with a relatively firm flex rating results in a great ski for jumping
  • Full tip/tail rocker allows for a playful ride and easy to ski switch
  • Continual edge wrap in the nose and tail along with the improved sidewall design allows this ski to last longer than other twin-tipped skis
Not ideal for
  • Little bit of movement in the nose/tail at high speed when flat on hardpacked terrain
  • 96mm underfoot does not provide the float needed on a powder day of more than 6-9" fresh snow

This ski is great and can handle anything you throw at it. With a 96 waist, it's great for anyone in the Rockies or anyone with more powder. It can handle hard pack but excels in powder. With a tip and tail rocker, you'll float on powder. And, of course these are designed for freestyle skiers. These skis are perfect... Read more

My new Skis

Posted on Dec 23, 2023
I could not be more in love with my new skis. They not only look amazing but ride like a dream. It is the first time i have ridden with a true center mount but the skis are designed for it. They are so smooth. For a guy who grew up a racer and is now a all mountain skier, this are perfect.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Spencer was super responsive and patient while I was trying to work from home but also purchased new snowboard gear. I had a lot of specifics I wanted to see with a new snowboard, bindings, and boots. Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and created a video to help me work through my available choices.

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!

If you don't know. Ask. I was clueless cuz the tech has changed since I stated. Frankie helped me get the exact board I wanted for the kind of terrain I was headed to. These are people who know what they are talking about. And are more than friendly. I got a collection of curated boards and all were winners. Only 1 came home.

I’ve been contemplating buying skis for over a year now and reached out to Bernard initially. A year and some later I was finally ready to bite the bullet. I messaged Bernard again hoping he would respond and give me a few more up-to-date suggestions and he responded immediately!! I was so appreciative as the thought of shopping for skis is so time consuming and such an investment!
