SkiEssentials recently put together a review of the redesigned 2016 Volkl Kendo. I know quite a few of you have been interested in the changes to this ski, so I thought we'd share:
"Between the Blizzard Bonafide, Nordica Enforcer, and the Volkl Kendo (just to name a few) it seems as though 2016, at least for many companies, is a year of change. It can often be a little scary from a skier’s perspective when our favorite skis go under the knife and come out a different animal, but despite our reservations, it’s usually for the best.
You may be worried that in changing the Kendo, Volkl has taken away from its high performance feel. What many of us loved about the Kendo was its ability to hold an edge through a very aggressive carving turn, yet was still versatile enough to ski the whole mountain. Does the 2016 version have the same ability? Is it better? Will it hold an edge as well? These were the questions we set out to answer."
The entire article is available in the Member Gear Review section here on our Chairlift Chat blog as well as here on EpicSki:
Who else has had a chance to get on the redesigned Kendo? What did you think??
