Völkl Kenja ski review, 2017/2018 women's All-Mountain Front Category, from our equipment experts at Realskiers.com powered by Masterfit.

Every category has a reference ski, the model all other skis are measured against. The doyenne of the hotly competitive women’s All-Mountain Front skis genre is Völkl’s Kenja, a classic wood/Titanal sandwich ski molded into a rocker-camber-rocker arrangement. The race-room construction guarantees the Kenja will grip on glass; the rockered profile enables sensitive steering in deep, tracked-up snow. If the Völkl Kenja’s myriad charms could be condensed to a single word, it would be “stable.” Stable on steeps, stable in heavy crud, stable whenever and wherever you absolutely need it to be. For the skilled skier who knows how to use her edge angles, the Kenja is a no-brainer. Just hop on and fire up the afterburners. For skiers just below this skill level, Völkl's Kenja is a perfect set of training wheels. Skylar from Aspen Ski and Board wrote: “From year to year, the Kenja continues to be the perfect ski for any condition. Outstanding edge hold on ice and easy to turn at higher speeds while still maintaining control. I’d recommend it for any advanced woman who loves it all!”
