2015 Völkl Kenja ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Front Category.

“This ski has great carving properties, making it a good choice for both east and west coast,” says Muecke. The Kenja returns in 2014/15 with its well-noted race-ski-style construction, which includes titanium, vertical sidewalls and multi-layer wood core where dense ash is used underfoot, and supple, snappy poplar is used in the rest of the ski. The Kenja also has Völkl’s Bio-Logic shape, meaning it’s wider in the rockered tip for maneuverability and narrower in the tail to make turns easier at the finish. Sibley notes, “Sometimes the tail washes out at the end of a GS turn, but it feels stable everywhere else.” Testers awarded top scores for both carving and stability to what Rodman calls “a solid performer on and off-piste.”
