If you’re looking for something loose and playful, check out Völkl’s 90Eight. But for stability, precision, and locked-in carving power, nothing beats a Kendo. A Völkl-lover’s Völkl, the Kendo is a classic wood-core, metal-laminate, full-sidewall layup—ideal for high-speed arcing on soft groomers. Yet tip and tail rocker give it surprising quickness and agility for off-piste applications. Britt: “Holds the snow like a fridge magnet. A true tip-and-ripper for strong, athletic skiers.”

Strengths: Quickness/Maneuverability, Hard-Snow Integrity, Stability at Speed
