volkl kendo sizing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


im really considering getting the volkl kendo and ive read a TON of information on here and other places and im still not sure what size to get! alright im a advanced skier, 5'9 140 and go skiing out west at lake tahoe every year. I love to tear up the groomers and im kinda new to powder but im catching on quickly. I would say that i spend 60 on piste 40 off. As of right now i would say groomers are my top priority but closely followed by the fresh stuff. Im also new to tree skiing but i would like form them to be able to be the right size for that. The options are 170cm 177 184 191

Thanks, Nick

I'm 5' 11" / 165 pounds and have the 177cm.  I could probably handle the 184 just fine, and in that same sense you could probably handle the 177cm just fine as they're only a few cms taller than you... but I doubt you'd feel like the 170cm were too short, either, considering they're just a bit shorter than yourself.  I think it comes down to your personal preferences on length in this case more than any specific sizing / fit based on your specs.

Nick what length/type skis are you on now? I'm 5'7 170#, my twin tips are 177. I'd recommend the 177 if you are skiing advanced terrain.

For the past few years ive been on a set of k2 groomers. That have really been a great ski but now im looking for something to let me do things that this ski simply couldnt do ive really grown out of them.They where 156cm i believe. Im 16 so ive grown a lot since then I was like 5'5 when I bought them 3 years ago. Im assuming that I will be another 1/2 inches taller by next season so im leaning toward the 177, just want to here your guys opinions.  Thanks!

If you're still getting taller then I'd definitely go for the 177cm...
