Skiing Park with Volkl Kendo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Skiing for over 15 years, mostly groomers. Also offpist for couple of years.

 

Last year i bought a pair of Kendos, and i'm pretty satisfied with their pist performance.

 

This year i'm planning to start park. Will hit jumps, train switch and maybe boxes/rails... Kendos are pretty though to be playful, also not a true twin-tip. Should i go for a second pair, a true park ski? Armada halo maybe? Or Kendo's will serve fine for this season?

 

Thanks for advice.

the kendo's are not really a "park ski" sure you can hit a few jumps and drops with them no problem but you would definitely benefit from a softer ski in the park. Plus not sure if you would want to beat up the kendo by hitting boxes and rails. you could buy last years models of more park specific ski's for pretty cheap on line. I have seen several dynastar distorter and elan pinball models going for around $200 new

Found used (just 1 ride acually, almost new) 2012 Armada Halo with VIST bindings for 600$. Not bad?
