Testers struggled to find anything wrong with the Kendo. They loved how it can lay down trenched arcs on groomed snow, play around in bumps, and even handle choppy re-frozen crud with predictable, reliable, German-built precision that skiers have come to expect from Völkl. Featuring a metal overlay, full wood core, and just a touch of rocker in the shovel, this ski goes everywhere and enjoys every turn. 

Strengths: Quickness, Versatility

Weakness: Forgiveness
