The Volkl Racetiger GS R 25 junior giant slalom ski is part of a series that provides stepping stones for U14 and U16 racers as they make their way up the ladder to the fully fledged World Cup models. With a radius of 21m and length of 174cm, the GS R 21 is an ideal choice for younger juniors looking for a length and radius longer than the GS R Jr models. This ski does not come with a race plate or UVO system, so it's perfect for those looking to swap their plate and UVO from a shorter ski and save the extra expense. Two layers of titanium sandwich a multi-layer woodcore to provide a powerful, lively ski that's more forgiving than the adult models. Hardwood running along the edges provides a firm edge hold, which can be further enhanced by the UVO 3D vibration dampening system to eliminate tip wobble.
