Product Info

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.

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 for pop.

Shape

Moderate Tip and Tail Taper

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.

Two Layers of Titanal

Sidewalls

Full Sidewall

Base

P-Tex 2100

Binding Compatibility

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

    For the Northeast this is your ski! As you know it is not uncommon to hit fresh powder, then a groomed trail, and then ice. Rest assured this ski will support you through all of it!

      Very stable at higher speeds with a smooth ride. You have to be aggressive with good technique or these skis will take you for a ride.
      Cuts through all types of snow, good in moguls as well as nice front side carving. Plan to take these skis to the bowls this weekend. Will see how the flotation is then.

      Comments about Volkl Kenja Skis - Women's 2017:

      I've been enjoying tackling these on anything from double blacks to groomers.They keep speed wonderfully going through flat terrain. I'm loving how versatile these skis truly are on power day or corduroy days, I have yet to try them on a icy day but I'm sure they'll preform wonderfully since they hold an edge great.
