Read the Review Transcript: Hey Jess here. Just got of the Volkl Kiku. I would give this ski a 4 out of 5 stars. It's a big mountain ski, it's a little bit wider in the waist. It's surprisingly light and very maneuverable. When I was out there just on the hard pack stuff it really responded well and if you pushed down it can catch a great edge. It's got a really long turn radius, you can make some really wide turns on it and reall get over on edge even though it is a big mountain ski. I would suggest this ski for advanced to expert level skiers. It can really go anywhere and do anything but it is definitely meant for the back country.
