Hey, this is Hunter. I just got off the Volkl Kendo. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's for the skier who doesn't know where their season's gonna take them. Equally versatile between east coast and west coast skiing. In the trees, hard snow, soft snow, it really, I can't really categorize. This ski will do anything you want, for the most part. A little bit of tail rocker makes it easy to shut down speed even coming out of a carved turn. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi, this is Jeff. I just got off the Volkl Kendo. This is updated for this year. I'm going to give this a 5 out of 5. Absolute blast to ski on this ski. It does just about everything. It's a bigger sweet spot than before. It's rocker/camber/rocker so it's got some early rise in the tip and tail. There's really nothing this ski can't do. You can ski it frontside, you could ski it in the deep stuff. You can go fast, you can go slow. The harder you ski it, the more you're going to like it. It's absolutely a 5 out of 5. Volkl Kendo.

Hey, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the Volkl Kendo. I'm going to give this ski a 5 out of 5. The Kendo is updated a little bit this year. A little bit wider in the waist. Full rockered ski. A little bit different tip shape so it will tend to bust through crud a little bit better than last year's. I would say this ski is good for the advanced-intermediate all the way up through the advanced level rider. Gonna be a great all-day ski. Great one-ski quiver. Good for, you know, charging riders. Also know guys to telemark ski on this because it's pretty lightweight and it's just a really good all-around ski. Volkl Kendo - 5 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the all new Volkl Kendo. This is a 5 out of 5 star ski for me. This thing is all about energy. Tons of grip, tons of pop. The thing really charges and carves a turn very well. But unlike Kendos of the past, becasue of the new shape, it's a little bit more playful. You can still skid and smear the ski around. So somebody that's really an on-trail skier, gonna ski groomers, bumps, a little bit of crud, every now and again look for some powder, it's a really, really good option because you've got all that on-trail performance and it's still versatile enough to dabble off-trail as well. 5 out of 5.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the new Volkl Kendo. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It makes a great ski for that advanced to expert skier. The one thing about this ski is it doesn't ski like it has in the past. They've changed the rocker profile and they've changed the tip profile. It has a much looser feel than before. The way the tip profile is, it's got a little bit more taper to it and the rocker has rocker/camber/rocker to it so it does have a much looser feel on the firm snow. But it's still a great ski for that advanced to expert skier. 5 out of 5.

Hi, this Hans. I just came off the new Volkl Kendo. The Kendo has been updated. It's got a different sidecut. It's 1mm wider underneath the foot - it's a 90 now. But it also has instead of only tip rocker, it has tail rocker too so it's definitely more forgiving. If you're a very aggressive skier it's going to be a little bit squirrely on higher speed. Think I'd put an advanced skier on here all the way up through an expert. I give this ski a 4 out of 5.
