    An all-mountain ninja.

    Consider yourself a mountain-shredding black belt? Chop your way down the mountain with the Volkl Kendo Ski, which slices and dices the entire mountain with the precision of a samurai's blade. Volkl combined a 90mm waist to traditional camber underfoot to create a ski that won't back down from any ice-coast face or Rocky Mountain hardpack and laid it up with titanium to give you plenty of power when you want to rail turns. The Kendo also uses Volkl's iconic Power Construction that utilizes a race-inspired torsion box and vertical sidewalls to enhance the ski's stiffness and durability.

    Even though the Kendo would be an excellent daily driver for eastern rippers, the Kendo's not a traditional carving ski. It's wide enough to eat up the occasional shot of pow, and has been outfitted with tip and tail rocker to help it to get up up and over rough snow, ease turn initiation, and ride consistently in almost any snow condition. Volkl also hooked the Kendo up with a multi-layer wood core, which features stiff ash underfoot to improve binding retention and power, with lively poplar in the tips and tails for playfulness and easy maneuvering. The bottom line is the Kendo is a great ski for East Coast rippers looking for a daily driver and westerners looking for a confidence-inspiring ride on the hardpack.

    Awesome Ski

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I recently replaced my aging Atomic carving skis with a set of these Kendos and I could not be happier. Just an awesome ski. Turn initiation is very easy, they hold an edge really well and they're super stable everywhere. Fantastic in loose snow/chop and really comfortable in the bumps. I'm an intermediate skier and I find these to be an incredibly confidence inspiring ski. I was a little concerned with some of the reviews I read online about this being for an advanced skier, but was pleasantly surprised once I got on them. This ski performs extremely well when pushed hard but yet is very forgiving and very confidence inspiring. I can't wait to ski them again.

    Love these skis! Great all mountain ski

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been skiing for 25 years and this is by far the best pair of skis I have had. When I started skiing shaped or powder skis were not around. The longer the better. When I moved to an Atomic shaped ski and didn't go down in length (I am 6' 170) I struggled at first. Part was due to the fact that I was not using a stiffer boot because they killed my feet. I adapted and have had some amazing powder days at Snow Basin (2002 Winter Olympics Mens/Womens Downhill resort). When I upgraded I went with a stiffer boot 120 and although these are an all mountain ski, I grew up skiing in deep powder on skinny skis. These allow me the flexability to ski with my buddies and teach my kids. I can easily ski backwards to help my youngest, or find fresh powder in the trees with friends. I will be getting a pair of skis for powder only skiing, but for now, these work great!

    I can ski the groomed stuff with no problem and last year when there was a bad snow year I could ski the steep man made snow runs without catching edges. turning is easy. I have heli skied with much less of a ski, and though these may not be a deep powder ski, they can handle it. You can't go wrong with Volkl!

    One of the best Volkl skis of all time!

    The Kendo has a new 90mm waist and new extended tip/tail rocker design offering more confident steering at slower speeds and less aggressive skiing while maintaining full tip to tail edge contact for confidence, stability and control at faster speeds and more aggressive skiing. It's the perfect blend of rocker and camber for trail and off trail skiing. The new Kendo will surely be viewed as one of the best Volkl skis of all time.
