Product Info

The Völkl Kenja Skis, longtime standby of hard-carving resort skiers worldwide, get a subtle re-design for 2016, and it's all for the better. A little more width in the waist, a little more rocker at both ends of the ski, and a bit of tip taper make this a better all-rounder with smoother performance in fresh snow. Rest assured though that the tenacious edgehold and stability at speed are still there in spades - in fact, testers last spring found it even better as a performance machine than its predecessor, which is quite a feat.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Freeski Tip and Tail RockerMakes 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.

Sidecut

Early Tapered SidecutTaper in the tip and tail allows the ski to steer in and out of the turn more easily in powder and gives you the freedom to choose any turn shape you wish.

Core

Multi Layer WoodcoreVölkl 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.

Titanal Laminate LayerThere's nothing like a layer of metal to make a ski damp and stable 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.

I love these skis! It took me a long time to find something that would make me get rid of my Burnin Luv's but these did, they are a great all mountain ski in all conditions

Great skis

Comments about Volkl Kenja Skis - Women's 2016:

I demoed several skis before buying these. The Kenjas were suggested to me on a forum based on my wanting a good all-mountain ski for an advancing intermediate skier (I mainly ski Tahoe) that is looking to do a little off-piste. Really glad Evo still had my size (163) - many other places were sold out. Only thing was one top sheet was scratched as they weren't packaged too well (slid around in transit). Slightly disappointing, but seems to be just cosmetic, so I didn't bother with returning. Other than that, skis are great, I'm pleased with service and shipping (arrived exactly when expected). Mounted with Attack 13 (Tyrolia) bindings, which seems to have been a great choice.

Grat ski for most conditions

Comments about Volkl Kenja Skis - Women's 2016:

A stable and quick turning ski that works well on groomers, hard pack and light powder. The ski is much lighter than the skis they replaced. Paired them with the Marker Squire bindings. I have powder skis so wanted a ski that would work in all other conditions except deep powder.

Excellent ski

Comments about Volkl Kenja Skis - Women's 2016:

I am an eastern US skier. As many know New England ice is something to be recon with. We don't get many days of soft snow at all. So when I decided to give up my old and trusted Volkl Fuego for something more modern, I was a little nervous. After all Kenjas are much softer and wider ski. I was very pleased! Kenjas handled every kind of snow I could find in New England with admirable flexibility. They stuck to the slopes, yet were very fast and stable. They cut through the ice and stayed whisper quiet on the corduroy. And evo made the deal even sweeter with the lowest price out there!

Evo's Specs are off

By 

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Volkl Kenja Skis - Women's 2016:

Evo's specs here indicate some differences between the Kenja and Kendo (men's version) in terms of waist and tail width and level of difficulty. A comparison via Volkl's web site of the 2016 models shows that the men's and women's versions of this ski have identical specs. The only difference is the topsheet graphics.

Also, the women's version now comes in a 170 length (Thank you, Volkl!). This is an important detail for taller women. When trying to track down a good deal or a binding package, knowing that the Kendo is the same ski opens up many more options.

I think Evo may be running an older model's specs here.

N.B.: didn't fill out the rest of the review because I don't own the ski. I am looking to purchase it, and noticed the discrepancy in specs.
