The 2018 Volkl Kendo skis with bindings bundle is a fantastic deal for expert skiers looking for the ultimate in all-mountain performance. The Kendo has been a long-standing staple at the top of its class, and aside from cosmetic changes, this year’s version is no different. It’s still the industry standard of high-performance front side skis because of its performance at speed and versatility. The 2018 Volkl Kendo is built to go fast. With a full wood core and two sheets of metal, the Kendo’s construction is based out of their race room technologies. With camber underfoot, the Kendo rails turns on the groomed slopes with virtually no speed limit. The two sheets of metal keep the ski damp and solid on anything from pure ice to softer pack, while the full vertical sidewall gives tremendous torsional stability to the ski. In terms of versatility, the 2018 Volkl Kendo sports a 90mm waist and tip and tail rocker. The waist width is convenient because it’s wide enough to stay on top of moderate snowfall totals, but narrow enough to really hold an edge. The tip rocker-and subtle splay-assist in keeping the ski’s tips on top of any soft snow and affords for simplistic turn initiation. In any type of snow condition, the Kendo will excel because of its ability to float and carve. Paired with bindings, the 2018 Volkl Kendo is a killer deal and will not disappoint any top-end skier.
