Same as last years best selling model with new upgraded graphics, the Kendo 88 Skis have Volkls 3D Radius sidecut.
The new Kendo with 88 mm middle width shines with an impressive carving-performance due to the three different radiuses in the sidecut. This special geometry is 100% adjusted to the tip & tail rocker construction. Depending on the rider's speed or edge angle the effective edge becomes longer or shorter and the matching sidecut radius provides hold, maneouverability and smooth running.
On top the Kendo 88 is built with a Titanal Frame and Carbon Tips, providing more stability and dampening. At the same time the middle section of the ski becomes stronger and allows a softer setup. As a result the ski becomes extremely lively and as well as stable even at the highest speeds.
A Multilayer woodcore, framed by full sidewalls and a P-Tex 2100 base underneath rounds up the premium construction.
Tip & Tail Rocker – Bends up only in the shovel and tail zones, with a camber shape in the middle.
3D Radius Sidecut – Three radii in one ski shape deliver maximum versatility - long radii at the tip and tail for stability and smoothness, and a short radius in the mid-body allows the skier to switch from long arcs to short turns at will, at any speed.
Multilayer Woodcore – The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood surrounding it.
Carbon Tips – Tip material layup for high reliability/stability at the lightest possible weight.
Titanal Frame – Assures the most efficient and lively all-mountain freeride performance. By shaping the top layer of metal in just the right way, Völkl engineers created a lighter weight design that maintains stability and adds liveliness and energy.
Full Sidewall – Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.
P-Tex 2100 – A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability.
