The Volkl Kendo is always a favorite ski for the strong intermediate to expert skier who like stability and power on the frontside of the mountain with the ability to provide you with some floatation and maneuverability off the groomers. Volkl's Multi-Layer Wood Core uses vertically laminated strips of wood and a Full Titanal Layer to plow through crud, drive into firm terrain and overall deliver one damp ride regardless of conditions. Moderate Taper in the Tip and tail prevent the tips and tails from getting hung up in fresh snow and improve your maneuverability. The 90mm waist of the Kendo truly shines when you are making medium to long radius turns on a crud covered groomer, but also can give you the floatation you need on fresh snow days when you want to rip down a wide open bowl.

I demo'd many of the skis in this category, and found this to be the most universally adept ski. It loves speed, holds its edge on ice and is a monster in crud. Get on a groomer and it just wants to go go go, get in bumps and it is quick ...Read More

Q: I am 5'11", 185 pounds and a fairly aggressive and advanced skier. I skied a couple of days on the Kendo on a trip to Colorado and thought they would be great for the east coast where I live. I skied a 177 (that was the size they had) but am curious if you thought the 184 would be a dramatic difference or would be too big for the east coast and my size? Thanks!

A: Based on your weight, I would recommend the 177cm, but if you are aggressive, plenty of skiers jump up a size to add stability. The 184cm will have a longer turning radius, so if you ride East Coast trees you may want to stay at the 177cm. If you like a tighter turn you should ride the 177cm. If you stay out of the trees and want a bigger, sweeping turn, go with the 184cm.

Q: Hi, I am 6?, 165lbs and a strong intermediate/advanced skier. I've demoed the 177cm Kendo's and really enjoyed these for their maneuverability but am curious if I would be better off with the 184cm or would I be losing the very quality that I appreciated with the 177's if I went ahead with this purchase? Is 184 too long for my height/weight?

A: Based on your weight and ability I would recommend the 177cm Kendo for you. It is a fairly stiff and demanding ski that you may find the 184cm a bit fatiguing.

Q: I'm 6'4, 186 lb. intermediate/advanced skier. i'll do any run on the mountain, but nothing too crazy. All my skiing will be on the east coast and once a year in Colorado. Mostly groomed, but occasionally off trail. pretty average in terms of how aggressive i ski. What size would you recommend? I was thinking the 184 or 177. would either size be Ok or is the 184 too big? OR do you have other ones you might recommend?

Q: What is a good binding for Volkl Kendo skis? And good bindings for Volkl 90-Eight skis? I'm on a moderate budget. I do not necessarily want the cheapest thing possible....I'm looking for good quality at a moderate price. I'm 5'9", 170lbs, athletic build. Intermediate (toward advanced level skier). I ski mostly around lake Tahoe, CA and Nevada.

A: The Marker Griffon is the preferred binding for both the Kendo and 90Eight. The Look SPX 12, Salomon STH WTR 13 and Tyrolia Attack2 13 are all other solid options. Any bindings less that these would sacrifice some performance out of your skis.
