The 2021 Volkl Kendo 88 is another all mountain/freeride classic that is skiable for people of a wide range of abilities from intermediate – expert. Somewhat of a younger brother to the M5 Mantra, the Kendo 88 shares a lot of the same qualities but is a little bit narrower and accessible to more ability levels. The Kendo, however, can certainly hold its own and will ski phenomenally in all conditions, giving you stability on-piste, as well as playfulness and pop off-piste making it incredibly fun and after one lap you will be itching for more!
The Kendo 88 features the Volkl 3D Radius sidecut technology which allows for smooth transitions and performance in a variety of conditions, whether your carving groomers or navigating moguls. The construction is the same as the Mantra with a Multi Layer Woodcore supported by a titanal frame and carbon tips that provides supreme stability at speeds and makes the ski extra durable. The 88mm width underfoot makes this ski the perfect all mountain weapon and we particularly recommend it for advanced skiers who might ski a lot in Australia, New Zealand or Europe and want that do-it-all ski that is not too wide. For the Kendo 88 we recommend using a binding from the Marker Royal family such as the Griffon 13 ID for ultimate performance.
The Volkl Kendo 88 is a ski that is built to perform and built to last. A ski with great versatility, the Kendo will have your friends jealous as you rip around from chair to chair with unparalleled freedom.
