All the mountain you'd want to ski.
A mid-fat waist and torsion box wrap give the Volkl Kiku Ski quick edge-to-edge power and control, and the wide tip and Full Rocker profile make the ski feel a hovercraft on deep pow. It features a wide-radius sidecut for high-speed stability and arcing turns top to bottom; and the carbon reinforcement silences chatter on those long run-outs. You're probably thinking, 'But that sounds like an all-mountain ski,' and you're right. Just don't leave the Kiku in the garage on a powder day; its 107mm waist makes it the girthiest ski in Volkl's women's freeskiing lineup, and the ski most eager to get after the fresh stuff.
- Full rocker profile
- Power/Tough Box construction

Great Woman's ski
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I got this ski for my sister, a hard charging Telluride and she absolutely loves it. She skis it on everything - groomers, bumps, chalky snow and naturally powder. She has nothing but rave reviews. And, to top it off, she really appreciates the new graphics.

What have they changed on this ski versus one of the original Kikus? Comparison to samba other than width??
The Samba and the Kiku are a bit different. Samba's have traditional camber underfoot while the Kiku is fully rockered. You will notice much better performance on groomers with Samba because of the camber and narrower waist and smaller sidecut (it turns quickier). It's a slightly more versatile ski than the Kiku. You are going to see better flotation with the Kiku in powder due to the fatter girth and rockered shape.
Best womens ski on the market, hands dow

Finally an aggressive female ski! I love everything about this ski. It rails with power on groomers, with a rockered profile it wiggles in the trees, steeps and bumps and holds up to high speeds. It's the perfect combinations of playful and agile while holding up stiff and strong. Also, I love that it comes in a 178 for the tall ladies out there! This ski is a must have for intermediate to expert female skiers. You will love it!!!
can someone compare to Rossignol Savory...
can someone compare to Rossignol Savory 7? Looking to buy these as a gift for my wife. She has rented the Kiku's in the past and has loved them. I was thinking she may prefer the Savory's because they appear to be softer possibly more forgiving? Any insight would be welcome. Thanks
My wife, an non aggressive expert (5'7", 110 pounds) has skied the Rossi line and the Volkl line, and she far prefers Volkl.
Best to let her Demo them before you buy them.
