Manufacturer: CODA BOARDS

Monoski: V-0-XL MONOBOARD

 

The V-Zero XL is a longer version of the original carving "Tool" that started it all:

The V-0-XL is a very stable board that is quick edge to edge and has an excellent hold in all conditions. The advantages of the V-0-XL over the original V-0 are similar to the advantages of traditional snow ski longer lengths over shorter lengths. For a rider with the physical build for a longer effective riding edge, the V-0-XL distributes the weight of a rider over a longer edge, for less drag and a faster ride. Turning a longer edge, however, may be a more difficult task for a rider of slight build.
The V-zero gives the quick response of a CODA carving board, while allowing for the possibility of the wash out familiar to those accustomed to old-school monoski slide technique. These are just accomodations, however, as the primary goal of the V-0-XL design is deep, high-speed carving. Like all our boards, the Deep V in the tail allows the tail to sink in the powder, effectively lifting the nose and making it rock out in the deep snow as no traditional tail monoski ever can.

We think there is no „one fits all“ monoski.

Though a professional skier will be able to ride „everything“, we wouldn't recommend to buy a soft, easy beginners model, that surely will be boring, soon or even worse, wouldn't stand the stress that a pro will give to the mono.

Vice versa most monoski models that are for „the fast and furious“ will give a beginner a real hard time.

We ask the manufacturer to recommend this monoski model for a certain „range“ from first try to a pro skier. So we do ask our members, when they rate and review. Compare the opinions (like all other values on this page)..

Comment:
Its looks are a combination of “pure awesome” mixed with a bit of “OMG” and “This thing could very well kill or mame me”. After getting past that, I have to agree that it does look like the most unique piece of equipment on the mountain! (A+)

*For its size, it is surprisingly light weight. I used it with the non-release bindings and it is still incredibly light. Very much lighter than my Snowshark: Powdershark with Solomon 920 racing bindings. *This is the same for both skis I tested* (A+)

*The non-release bindings have always peaked my curiosity but I never pursued the feasibility of using them myself. I didn’t have a choice today. If I wanted to demo these skis, I had to use the non-release bindings. I must admit that they were not as scary or alien as I had imagined and after clipping in and out of them a few times it really isn’t all that difficult. *This is the same for both skis I tested* (A)

This ski is designed to be used for those that like to lay down those huge, sweeping, deep carving turns that leave trenches across the groomers but I was also told that it could be skied in the more traditional manner just as well. I am of the more traditional type of skiing and was more interested in that aspect and it handled very well. I also tempted fate by trying the “other” style and was able to lay down some reasonable carving turns when I was feeling froggy. (A+)

I was told that this ski was best maximized when your weight was neutral and over the center and this was very true. It does not react well when you get your weight in the back seat.

*The snow conditions I experienced was a range from early morning bullet ice to stashes of windblown powder in the nooks and crannies and afternoon wet and heavy slush. This ski reacted surprisingly well in all of the conditions and I can only speculate that it will absolutely eat deep powder up! *This is the same for both skis I tested* (A+)

Overall … KICK ASS BEAST!!!
