Product Info

The Völkl Kendo Skis offer perhaps the best blend of easy turn initiation and solid edgehold in the industry, and will take you anywhere on the mountain in cool confidence. Classic Völkl Power Construction uses a multi-layer ash and poplar core with a full layer of metal on top to give you great performance on any snow surface.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip RockerThe combination of an early rise tip and a classic camber profile in the rest of the ski provides easy, smooth turn entry regardless of conditions. The ski is incredibly forgiving, floats better, and requires less energy to ride.

Core

Multi-Layer Wood CoreVölkl freeskiing models feature a multi-layer wood core that features two different densities of wood. In the binding attachment area, a dense, ash core is used, while in the rest of the ski, the core is poplar. The more dense wood creates more secure screw retention, preventing binding pull-out, and the soft, supple poplar section allows for resilience and snap. The flex pattern is tailored to each ski model, depending on the desired performance.

Laminates

Power ConstructionConstruction utilizes traditional vertical sidewalls and a torsion box internal layup. Used in racing skis as well as all the freeskiing models, this versatile, proven construction provides tremendous grip, stability, and a smooth ride.

Powered by TitaniumA metal layer just under the topskin delivers dampness and power at speed.

Sidewalls

Vertical Sidewalls

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Volkl Kendo Skis 2015:

    Demoed the Kendo in this years model after the others. This did everything I asked and was an intuitive relationship with the ski. Solid carver at moderate speed, fun in short-snappy quick turns, stable in long turns. Then bought the same ski in a previous year (told graphics is the only difference). Same slopes the next day: Could not get it to do ANYTHING - carve, snap, long turns, cruise, moguls, nothing! Shop said there is no difference between years (True or not?) they agreed to take them back to tune them to see if there is a difference. Went from Best all rounder to worst ski ever in 1 day and 1 year model difference. More updates to come.

    Comments about Volkl Kendo Skis 2015:

    I bought brand new Volkl Kendo skis for the 2014-2015 season and was very, very impressed. If you have a racing background and want to fly down groomed runs, these skis will make you remember why you love to ski. I found that the Kendo was more responsive the faster I went on groomed trails on Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachelor in Oregon. These skis are made to go fast.
