Fancy yourself a mountain-shredding black belt' Do your damage with the Volkl Kendo Ski, which slices and dices the whole mountain with the precision of a samurai's blade. Volkl married an 89mm waist to traditional underfoot camber to create a ski that won't back down from any ice-coast face or Rocky Mountain hardpack, and laid it up with titanium to give you plenty of power when you need to rail your turns. The Kendo also uses Volkl's trademark Power Construction, with features a torsion box and vertical sidewalls to enhance the ski's stiffness and durability. Although it would be an excellent daily driver for eastern rippers, the Kendo's not a traditional carving ski. It's plenty wide enough to eat up the occasional shot of power, and has been outfitted with tip rocker to help it cruise over rough snow, ease turn initiation, and ride consistently in all snow conditions. Volkl also hooked the Kendo up with a multi-layer wood core, which features stiff ash underfoot to improve binding retention and power, with lively poplar in the tips and tails for playfulness and easy maneuvering. East coasters looking for an everyday rippers or western shredders who need a do-it-all ski for the hardpack, the Kendo's your new weapon of choice,
