The Volkl Confession is a lean, mean, slaying of mountains machine. It's build to charge on gnarly terrain which is why so it's so popular on the pro circuit. Titanal bands combine with a vertical sidewall, generous camber underfoot, and a slight rocker in the front to provide a stable platform for hard-charging deep snow debauchery. The traditional shape encourages aggressive turn shapes while the multilayer woodcore reinforced with carbon stringers is able to absorb shock from massive impacts. If you intend to send that no-fall zone and make it look easy, then you'd better hope you're on the Confession.
The latest Volkl Confession, pictured above, gets a fresh coat of paint for 2018. The product links correspond to the latest model, but you may be able to snag a deal on last year's version. See a side-by-side comparison below.
