Volkl's Kendo is going on it's second year with Tip Rocker and camber underfoot. It's nimble 89mm waist will surpise wide ski naysayers that think 80mm is too wide for 'East Coast skiing'. Pair it up with one of Marker's wide ride bindings like the Griffon and you'll be carving better on this thing than you were on your K2 Recons from six years ago. The Kendo is the exact same construction as the Mantra just on a narrower platform, if getting close to the number 100 for a waist width freaks you out than check out this skinny little number. You'll feel better and do less unnecessary work in the soft snow and have more fun arcing turns down your favorite runs at your local resort. The Kendo is a great one ski quiver.
Power Construction - Sidewall runs the length of the ski for maximum edge hold and stability.
Powered by Titanium - Incredible energy and snap. Titanium gives the Volkl Kendo unrivaled power and stability.
Sensorwood - A combination of vertically laminated poplar and beech woods. This core is extremely durable and helps to provide the skis with a consistent flex.
Freeski Tip Rocker - Rocker in the tip with camber underfoot. Effortless turn initiation, increased floatation and stability where you need it most.
The Volkl Kendo does not come with a binding. We recommend you use a binding that will accommodate your skiing needs (backcountry, touring, all-mountain, freestyle etc.). Be sure the brake width and release settings will work for your particular activity. Questions about what's best for you, contact an expert at TheSkiMonster.com.
