Kenja or Nordica Belle for a chubby intermediate skier? - Page 2

post #31 of 33

I hear quite often that the Volkl line is stiffer than most.  I am high end intermediate skier and currently have and LOVE the Volkl Violas.  Are the Violas stiff to people and they just don't seem it to me.  Just curious.  I am very interested in upgrading my skis this year so the Kenja is at the top of my list so I am anxiously reading  this thread.

FWIW, the Kenja got high marks for being forgiving. I bought a pair of last years for my GF, level 6 skier.

I also ski with a level 9 small woman 5FT 110lbs who loves her 2013 Kenja's. She even had them in 156cm. One of the ski house mates a tall girl going for her PSIA III has them in 170cm and also loves them.

Buy them and take a few lessons on them.

Read the ratings in ski magazine.

Thanks. I have done a ton of reading on them and so far I think they are the ski for me.  On paper they are fabulous and I love the fact that they are camber through the body and rockered in the tip(s).  I just have this idea it will be my ginsu knife carving machine that will advance my abilities to the next level.  Now I just need to try the ski.  My local mountain demos it and I plan to take a couple lessons.  I am currently a level 5 skier.
