A frontside ripper with no real equal, the Völkl Kenja 88 Skis have been on top of the groomer heap for at least a decade and have no plans of stepping down soon. Unparalleled edge grip, precision throughout the turn, and dampness at speed mean skiers with an appreciation for a clean turn at speed need to make space in the quiver for this ski. The Tailored Titanal Frame and Tailored Carbon Tips on the new construction mean just as smooth a ride with more compliant turn initiation than previous versions of this ski.
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 – A 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.
Tailored Carbon Tips – In this innovative manufacturing process the new Tailored Carbon Tips are produced by embroidering the individual carbon fibers onto a carrier material. This allows them to be positioned exactly along the stress lines, opening up completely new possibilities, for performance at the front of the ski, which has a decisive influence on handling.
Tailored Titanal Frame – The size of the frames is tailored to the skier’s height, skiing ability and power. This means that longer ski models have a higher titanal content for more stiffness, more direct power transmission and stronger dampening. The shorter the length, the lower the titanal content, which makes the ski more agile, so that smaller, lighter and less powerful skiers can use the full potential performance of the ski.
Full Sidewall – Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
