Lovers of the original Yumi, rejoice! The Volkl Kama Ski takes on the same sidecut as the pre-2018 Yumi, but without the aggressive addition of titanal bands that have come with more recent models. This freeride ski features a fairly narrow waist underfoot and plenty of camber, so it excels at arcing turns on fresh groomers. Early rise in the tip offers a boost over crud or fresh snow, and eases turn initiations, while a flatter tail offers support when coming out of each turn. Volkl kept the core in the Kama light, with a multi-wood construction that's playful and easy to maneuver. Forgiving in variable terrain, intuitive to turn, and priced to leave you with extra money for slick bindings, the Kama is an all-around winner for intermediate ladies that want to rip around without the stress.

- Q & A
I'm looking to purchase the Volkl Kama skis in 154cm. What bindings should I be looking for? Thanks!
Hi Hilary, there are a bunch of options for you out there, and it sort of comes down to weight, style of skiing, boot type, if you want to be able to Tour etc. The skis will work with most any binding, so long as the brake width is >83mm but no larger than 100mm to avoid excessive drag while turning.
A couple suggestions could be the Marker Squire or Griffon, the Tyrolia AAATack, or the Look Pivots.
If you are able to chat or call in with a bit more info about your style of skiing etc, a gearhead could provide a more accurate suggestion for you!
