One of the most popular skis this decade!
How do you improve a legend? You retain the features that made the ski famous and add the latest innovations, which allow progress where a year ago you couldn’t see any room for improvement. The new 2024 Volkl Kendo 88 again comes with a multi-layer wood core and tip and tail rocker. But in the coming season, the newly designed ski body will, for the first time, be adapted to a 3D radius sidecut concept with a tailored Titanal frame like the M6 Mantra. By adapting the Titanal components to the various ski lengths and thus to the skier’s proportions, not only can the tip and tail ends be weight-optimized, but the torsional stiffness can also be influenced, thereby improving the ride qualities. This retains the familiar stability of a Titanal ski while also making the Kendo 88 noticeably lighter and more agile to control. The new handling characteristics of the Kendo 88 are also enhanced by the tailored carbon tip. The dedicated positioning of the carbon fibres results in a precise tip response and vastly improves the ski’s torsional stiffness. The Kendo 88 also has a new geometry with a 1m tighter radius than its predecessor, therefore, resulting in more agility with less effort!
In summary, the Kendo 88 is even more versatile than its predecessor and once again offers maximum fun!
