 Overview
 

The Volkl Kenja is always a favorite ski for aggressive skiing women who likes stability and versatility. Rocker in the tip and tail allows you to maneuver the ski easily, while camber underfoot delivers a high amount of edge hold and rebound. A 90mm waist powers through crud, rolls through moguls, floats in the powder, and is nimble for medium radius carves on a steep groomer. A Full Titanal Layer sits above the Multi-Layer Wood Core for extra stability at high speeds. The Multi-Layer Wood Core has a softer wood in the tips and tails for weight reduction and easier control, with a more dense wood underfoot for extra retention of binding screws. Moderate Taper helps prevent the tips and tails from getting caught up in the deep snow on powder days.

Hi I'm Julie I just got off the Volkl Kenja. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 star rating. I think it's an excellent ski for an advanced to expert level lady, that is looking for something with a little bit wider waist. Its going to be more versatile all over the mountain. Its a very lively ski you get the most out of it the more you push it. It's extremely snappy in between the turns and its a ton of fun, as a former racer and a race coach now this is a great all-mountain ski for somebody like me so, 5 out of 5 stars.

Hey Jess here, I just got off of the Volkl Kenja's. I would give this ski a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I actually own a pair of these, it's a great advanced level ski especially for that skier that's got a little bit more power, a little bit more weight. It likes the fast long arching turns, it will stay on edge very, very easy. It definitely likes to be pointed down hill, so if you're looking for a ski that likes speed and likes those big long carves this would be a great ski for you.

Just demoed this ski in new zealand. Phenomenal ski for aggressive skier. Stability and speed are exceptional but the ski is still nimble enough for bumps and variable terrain. Very damp in crud, a truly fun fearless ski for its size. All mountain, not an ice carver.

Q: I am also stuck between the 156 and 163. I am 5'5" and 150 pounds. I am 44 years old and ski the North East. The reason I am looking at this ski is I currently ski a tweener Rossignol SL 150 ski and love it but I need something wider for when we get powder or heavy wet snow. I am advanced to expert.

A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 163cm to be the optimal size for you. It will be a much more stable and versatile ride for you.

Q: Hi, I have demoed this line of Volkl few times last year, 156cm always. i am 5'5", 130lb. I am advanced skier but I don't do anything crazy. Is 156cm too short for me?

Q: Hi, I am looking at an older pair of used kenja skis. I'm 5'2" around 120 pounds. They're the 2013 Kenjas, and I'm wondering what length would be best. The pair I'm looking at are the 149, but I'm worried they'll be too short. I'm a fairly aggressive back country skier, I grew up skiing in the northeast but I live in California now and will mostly be skiing Tahoe.

A: The 149cm length is absolutely too short for you. As an aggressive skier who will be skiing off trail you will benefit greatly from a longer ski. The 156 length would be enough ski for most skiers as your height, weight, and aggressiveness. However, if you have a history of skiing longer skis or are simply looking to make big, long turns the 163 would be manageable at your weight. It is definitely going to require more effort and energy than the 156 but the trade off is a ski that will power through anything and not have a speed limit.

Q: I'm looking to pick up skiing again after not being on the slopes for 5-7 years. I am a aggressive skiing, former racer, enjoyed different trails including the random powder when its available, but its mostly groomed hard pack trails. That being said, I have beat up knees and can't handle the heavy solid racing skis and super stiff ski boots anymore and I'm teaching my 2 yr old how to ski this year. Lot of bunny slopes and wedge skiing in my future. I'm 5"2' 155lbs. #1) would you recommend this ski? Or something different? 2) Size?

A: The Kenja may feel a bit demanding for what you are looking for. I would suggest the Volkl Yumi for you. A lot of the same great technology, but a tad softer and lighter that will give you power when you want it while being easy to control at slow speeds on the bunny hill when you are out with your little one. I would recommend the 154cm Yumi for you.

Q: Hi! I am 5'8"& 145 lbs and am an advanced skier. I mostly ski Mammoth and Park City. I am not an aggressive skier-- I prefer moderate speeds and want good control. I mostly ski groomed runs. I loved the Kenja' 156 land am debating wehether to buy the 156 or 163. I know for my size the 163 seems right but the 156 felt perfect-- not having tried the longer size. If these felt good do you think it's okay to buy such a short ski?

A: Given your height and weight the 163cm length is what we would typically recommend for you. However, if you have skied the 156 and are only looking to cruise on groomed terrain at moderate speeds the 156 would be fine for you. The 163 will add more stability and control at speed and in different snow conditions. As that is not what you are interested in it is not necessary to move up to that length.

Q: Wondering if I should purchase Volkl Kenja or Saloman Jemma. I have been skiing on Atomic Balanz Metrons for years and they are done. Also own the Rossi Saffron for powder. I am 5'9" and 60 years old, weight 123 lbs, fit and active. I will be skiing in Quebec at Mont St Anne and Le Massif (East), Whistler (west - BC) and St Moritz, Switzerland this spring. I am an advanced Intermediate to Advanced skiier. I like to go 60-km/hr like on piste....trying to do more off piste

A: While both the Kenja and Gemma are very good skis I would lean towards the Kenja for your needs. This ski provides more stability, power, and dampness at the higher end of speeds especially on more firm snow. Also, with a slightly wider profile and more of a "freeride" rocker profile is handles variable snow and off piste conditions with slightly more predictability. It does require more energy/effort to ski but rewards your input more.

Q: Hi I'm Diane I weigh 140 and 5'1" I'm aggressive skier and tried the new 17 Kenja at Vail. I skied bumps and powder and did well. I think 149 too short...should I go with the 156?

Q: I am 45 years old, 5'4" tall, and 116 lbs. I live in park city, ut and ski 2+ days/wk. I'm a semi-aggressive skier. My kiku's (powder) are 154 and Blizzard's (front side skis) are 151. Would the 149 or 156 Kenja's be better for me? The 149's come up to the middle of my nose. The 156's are almost to the top of my forehead.

A: Based on your weight, I would suggest the 149cm, but your location and ability I think the 156cm. Since you are a pretty strong skier the 156cm will give you stability and power on cut up, non powder days.

Q: Hi, I am 5'4 130 pounds. I ski aggressively, mostly on groomed runs but I plan on doing some glades and maybe a backcountry trip this winter. My old skis were very flexible, size 149, and were not very stable at high speeds. I am looking for a ski that will be more stable. For the Kenja, should I stick with the 149 or go up to the 156?

A: Based on your weight and aggressiveness, which are the two most determining factors when selecting ski length the 156cm will be the optimal size for you.
