2018/2019 Völkl Kendo

The 2018/2019 Völkl Kendo.

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
