Hi I’m Steve and I just got off the Volkl Kendo. I really liked this ski I give it 5 out of 5 stars. A lot of fun on the groomed run really pushing it hard, pretty stiff ski so you can really put some power into it and it it’s very responsive when you do so. It does well in the crud as well and you can ski it through the bumps. Light enough that it is responsive but still a heavy enough ski that you can really put some pressure into it. 5 out of 5 stars.
