2022 Volkl Kanjo 84 Skis w/ Tyrolia Attack 11 GW Bindings
Volkl Kanjo 84 Skis with Bindings
The Volkl Kanjo 84 provides a blend of a lightweight construction and an energetic feel that a lot of intermediate and advanced skiers would enjoy. Featuring Volkl's multilaminate core and Glass Frame Construction this ski remains impressively light and exceptionally snappy while remaining fairly damp and stable at moderate speeds. While it doesn't provide the same power as the Titanal frame featured in other skis like the Kendo 88 and the M6 Mantra. It still provides the torsional stiffness needed to make a nice turn on a firm groomer. A fairly elongated rocker profile in the tip and tail add to this skis maneuverability overall making it very fun for short, skidded turns, ump runs and tight trees. At 84 millimeters under the boot, the shape of this ski suits a skier that prefers frontside or groomed terrain over other terrain types, but it provides just enough versatility for those who want to be a bit more adventurous. As a matter of fact, the Kajo 84 is a phenomenal bump ski thanks to its forgiving flex and maneuverable profile. It won't feel like you have to fight against the ski to maneuver it through the bumps, but instead will flex with the quick terrain changes and allow you to shuffle around very quickly for an elegant and graceful performance. This ski just provides a very agreeable package that so many different skiers would enjoy.

Volkl recommends a center mount for all of there skis with the exception of their twin tips which can be mounted either more forward or back from center mount depending on your skiing preference and style for park or switch skiing. Center mount on the Kanjos will put you right where you need to be to carve and for off-piste.
Thanks and think snow!
At your height, weight and skiing ability, you should be on 161-165 length ski, depending on the make and model offered by each brand.
I think the best ski for value is the Kanjo- approachable, versatile and precise. The Laser AR and and Kastle FX 86 are on the stiffer side, and need to be driven hard to perform at their best. Go for the 161 cm length.
At your height and weight, we would normally size an intermediate skier on a 175-170 cm length ski. I am a bit confused on what level skier you are, as you describe all three. if you are a beginner, you could go down to the 161 cm length. Intermediate to advanced, go with the 168.
Hope this helps and have fun!
The Kanjo is a great mix of Kendo and Experience 82. Very energetic and snappy with a good amount of versatility. We got on them yesterday and remembered how much fun they are. I'd go that route!
