Volkl Kenja 88 Women's Skis

The Volkl Kenja 88 sets the bar as being the quintessential front side all mountain ski for advanced to expert skiers. The Kenja 88 offers the precise and smooth feel that so many of us have come to know and love from Volkl. Starting with Volkl's classic construction featuring a multilayer wood core and a Titanal Frame, The Kenja 88 draws its power and smoothness from two laminates of laying on top of and underneath the wood. The laminate on the bottom comes in the form of a full sheet which offers tremendous stability, while the frame of Titanal laying over the core allows the ski to flex naturally while providing a lot of torsional stiffness and driving power into the edges of the ski for those deep trenching arcs on firm snow. At 88 millimeters under the boot, you get premium on-trail performance with a little bit of versatility and forgiveness when things get a bit soft or variable. A subtle tip and tail rocker profile in the Kenja 88 give it the necessary float and maneuverability for skiing any sort of off piste terrain as long as you're not in chest deep powder. Another feature that gives the Kenja 88 a unique feel is Volkl's 3D radius Sidecut which incorporates three different length arcs into the sidecut of the ski for easy turn shape manipulation. Depending on how you weight the ski and drive it into a turn, you can ride out some longer arcs or drive it into a quicker turn which brings a whole new meaning to just going and making some turns.

Features:

  • Sidecut: 129/88/111 mm at cm length
  • 3D Radius: 25/14/20 meters at 163 cm length
  • Core: Multilayer wood core
  • Full Sidewall
  • Titanal Frame Construction
  • Rocker Camber Rocker
  • Ability Level: Advanced to Expert Skiers

HI Craig,

Thanks for your inquiry-

The Volkl Kenja is a great one-ski quiver for advanced ladies, particularly if you ski the East on a regular basis. I would go for the 163 cm length. This will be a step up as far as all-mountain versatility from the Rossy 82 ti. Enjoy and think snow!

Hello! I currently ski the 2016 Volkl Yumis (154cm) and they've been wonderful and really fun! I feel like my skis are sometimes unstable at higher speeds and also sometimes gets caught in crud. I have good control on my turns (can do wide or narrow), like to go a medium speeds, and mainly ski blues and reds in the French Alps (mostly groomed slopes). Occasional powder when I go back to the US PNW. I'm looking to upgrade and not sure if I should go with the newer Yumi 84s, the Kenja 88 or Blaze 94 and if I should increase the lengths to 163s. I'm currently 160cms and 110lbs.

Hi Cynthia-

We would recommend the staying with Volkl and going to the Kenja. Will give you more stability at speed and a subtle tip and tail rocker profile in the Kenja 88 give it the necessary float and maneuverability along with crud performance that you are looking for. Go for the 163 length.

Have fun!

I’m and advanced skier, starting to test expert terrain. I ski in Tahoe where a good portion is hard pack and extreme icy conditions. The Volkl site claims they are not highly rated on hard pack, so I’m a bit confused. Is this ski suitable for icy conditions or not. Thanks
Question by: Constance on Feb 20, 2022, 10:16 PM
HI Constance!
We struggle with vendor catalogs as well, as their marketing sometimes clashes with real-world application. My guess is that their version of hard pack is different than yours. A ski like the Racetiger GS or the Deacon 72 Master would be higher on that hard pack rating, but they severely lack the versatility of the Kenja. Rest assured, the Kenja is a fantastic front-side ski that does great on firm snow, but they're correct in that it's not a "race" ski. Hope that helps!
