Last season, Völkl introduced some minor changes in its best-selling Kenja -- a wider 90 mm waist, a bit of tip taper, and discrete rocker at the tip and tail -- all intended to make the ski easier to initiate and more playful. That's not to say that the Völkl Kenja Skis have lost any of their legendary precision or power; the Kenja still carves up hard snow like a Ginsu knife in butter, and blasts through variable snow like the DEA coming in the front door of a crack house. Not for the faint of heart, but perfect for the technically sound rider who knows the difference between a clean carved turn and a skidded one, the Kenja is waiting.
Freeski Tip and Tail Rocker Makes the ski turn-friendly and allows for a stiffer flex setup. Only the shovel and tail zones bend upwards, with traditional cambering in the middle for pop.
Moderate Tip and Tail Taper
Multi-Layer Wood Core Völkl 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.
Power Construction Construction 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.
Two Layers of Titanal
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
