These iconic skis were first designed by legendary skier Shane McConkey. In his well-known commercials, Shane uses his Volant Machete to massacre an entire lift line to get the first chair. It’s a pretty gory video, but you know the saying, “no friends on a pow day.” The Machete is a large, fast, and powerful ski built for big mountain descents. Steel cap technology offers torsional rigidity for edge hold, deep flex for turning, sleek profile for stability, and the integrated 12mm performance riser plates increase the responsiveness of the skis. These skis would be best for collectors looking for a piece of influential ski history.

Disclaimer of Warranties:
For previously owned and used skis and bindings:
- Equipment is sold “as is”
- The buyer assumes all risk as to the quality and performance of the equipment
Special Safety Notice for Bindings: We urge you to take your boots and bindings to a shop certified by the bindings’ manufacturer to have a function check. The majority of shops will charge for this service. Even though we may, by request, check to see if a binding should fit your boot sole length, such an adjustment and fit check does not verify that the bindings will release properly with your boot. Only a certified shop can do this, with the user's boots present.
Skiing is dangerous. Ski at your own risk.
