2020 Volkl Kendo 88 Skis

The 2020 Volkl Kendo 88 Skis are a re-vamped model for this year, and the changes are all fantastic. Based on the success of the past year's M5 Mantra, the Kendo has received the same treatment. In the most basic sense, it's back to its original 88 mm underfoot width, and it now has Titanal Frame Construction, like the Mantra and Secret. This new Kendo is lighter and snappier while remaining as stout and stable at speed as ever. Thanks to the shape, profile, and construction of the 2020 Volkl Kendo 88 skis, all-mountain front-side skiers will have found their perfect tools. At 88 underfoot, the skis are a shade narrower than in year's past. This will give you a bit better carving control as well as increased torsional stiffness. What you lose in width for the flotation aspect, you make up for it with the Titanal Frame Construction that puts the second layer of metal over the edges while making the ski light and easy. It's a more user-friendly ski than in year's past, but more skiers will be able to enjoy the all-mountain versatility of the 2020 Volkl Kendo 88. Mogul and tree skiers will love the edge to edge quickness of the narrower ski, and with a rounded-off tail, the exit of the turn is fun and smooth. By utilizing a rocker/camber/rocker profile, the 2020 Volkl Kendo 88 is fun in the soft snow and serious on the hard snow. This dual-personality of the ski is ideal for advanced and expert level skiers who are looking to push both boundaries and speed limits.

  • Sidecut: 129/88/111 mm at 170 cm length
  • Turn Radius: 3D Radius (28/15/22 meters) at 170 cm length
  • Titanal Frame

I’ve been doing a lot of research lately looking for a new one quiver all mountain ski. I live in NY and ski mostly on the East coast. I’m 6’4” 220 pounds intermediate-advanced skier. I like to be able and rip occasionally but mostly enjoy playing in the trees and pumps. I’ve mostly narrowed my list down to the Völkl kendo/Kanjo/mantra. Although I don’t think I can go wrong with any of these skis I wanted to get your input as to which of these skis would be the best fit for me? Or is there another all mountain ski or skis I should look into thay would better suit what I’m looking for?

I'm a big guy, 6'6" 285 lbs, skiing mostly groomers in Vermont, and have been skiing the Kore 93 in a 180 length (was a huge discount that led to the shorter length). Overall I'm pretty happy with the Kore's performance, but on the steepest terrain or in the afternoons when its a lot of ice I sometimes find myself wishing for better bite into the slope or a little more speed edge-to-edge. I know the Kendo and Kore are pretty different in terms of construction, but I'm guessing that my size will be able to handle any of the increased stiffness and weight in the Volkl. Would the Kendo be a good second ski for me or should I be looking even narrower waist (Deacon 84/SuperShape Titan) for my dedicated on trail ski?

Thanks for your help and awesome reviews.

Hello - I am a good intermediate looking to progress. Ski east coast groomers but like to get in the trees and some light powder. 5'8" 170lbs. Do you think these skis are a good match? Thinking the 170cm would be an ideal length. Thanks!

5’8” , 175lb athletic male looking to step up to a longer ski from my first skis which 2016 Rossi Exp88s in 162cm. Solid intermediate but looking to step up to the next level.

Done a bit of research and narrowed it down to the 170cms in the Kendo 88 vs the Mindbender 90Ti? Any suggestions on which of the two? Any key differences or other suggestions?

Thanks so much!!

I'm looking at the Kendo ski for my eastern ski. I am a 5'6" and 135 lb male expert skier. I did a demo last year with the 2019 Kendo and liked that ski in the trees, bumps and ice. Will the 2020 have the same feel? Will it be as lively at my weight as was the 2019? Any suggestions?
