It seemed as if they had forgotten it, but now Völkl is drawing attention to the anniversary. The German ski manufacturer will be 100 years old this year, which is already quite advanced. To mark the occasion, an "Open Day" will be held at the company's headquarters in Straubing on 16 September. In addition, Völkl is announcing two special models that differ from the standard skis in terms of décor. The Racetiger SL comes as a "100 Years LTD Edition" in black with colorful neon stripes. In the Mantra M6, the wood core and carbon are showcased. Both are limited to 1923 pairs and will be available mainly in raffles and promotions. The underside is adorned with the signatures of all employees involved. (lle.)
