Pros: fast, powerful ski that holds its own
Cons: not an all mountain ski
I'm a racer and I skiied on the P40 last season. NOTE: I'm a racer. These ARE NOT the best all mountain ski as much as some people like to make them out to be. The P30 was suitable as an all mountain ski...It was a bit softer with more sidecut. The P40 has a lot more to it. It doesn't have the "zippy" turn like the P30, but it rocks for GS, and I even used it in some tighter Super Gs where it held the snow real nicely. Volkl skis have sort of gotten a rep. in the racing world as being a "chic ski", but this ski definetly stepped it up a level!!
They do okay in the bumps/powder, but if that's where you wanna be, you can do a lot better. These are a sweet ski for cruising though, and racing of course!!
