Description

Your all-mountain weapon of choice.

Fancy yourself a mountain-shredding black belt? Do your damage with the Volkl Kendo Ski, which slices and dices the whole mountain with the precision of a samurai's blade. Volkl married an 89mm waist to traditional underfoot camber 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 need to rail your turns. The Kendo also uses Volkl's trademark Power Construction, with features a torsion box and vertical sidewalls to enhance the ski's stiffness and durability. 

Although it would be an excellent daily driver for eastern rippers, the Kendo's not a traditional carving ski. It's plenty wide enough to eat up the occasional shot of power, and has been outfitted with tip rocker to help it cruise over rough snow, ease turn initiation, and ride consistently in all snow conditions. 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. East coasters looking for an everyday rippers or western shredders who need a do-it-all ski for the hardpack, the Kendo's your new weapon of choice,

  • Tip rocker with traditional camber underfoot
  • Multi-layer ash and poplar core
  • Titanium laminate
  • Power Construction with torsion box and vertical sidewalls
  • Slightly raised tail

What bindings do you recommend with this ski (177cm) and Technical Cochise 100 boots? New to shopping for bindings. Thanks!

Hey Rya,
There are a couple things to look at when selecting a binding. First you will want to make sure the brakes on the binding will fit the waist of the ski. So with these skis the waist is 89mm, meaning you want a binding that is somewhere between 85-95mm roughly. This way the brakes will fit the waist of the ski and will not overhang the side of the ski.

Secondly you will want to look for a binding that has a DIN range that accommodates your ability and weight. Most skiers will not need a binding with a DIN rating higher than 12 or 13. Most skiers on the hill will be riding their DIN's around 7-10. However based on your weight and ability you may need a lower or higher DIN. Having your DIN set too high or too low could cause you to get injured.

A couple bindings I personally like would be the Look Pivot 12 (95mm), and the Marker Griffon (90mm). These binding are very reliable and safe and would fit your skis. However you will want to first look at what DIN setting you will be riding at, and you can then select a binding with the appropriate width brake and DIN range.

Will marker griffon bindings with 90 brake width fit these skis or would I need to go with the 110?

Thanks!

Those bindings will fit in the 90mm brake width on these skis. The 110 brakes will be too wide and you run the risk of dragging the brake when you get the ski on edge. We only recommend a brake that is no more than 15mm wider than the waist width of the ski..
