Volkl Kenja 88 Ski (2023)
Updated for the 22/23 season, the Volkl Kenja 88 now sports Volk’s ‘Tailored Titanal Frame’ ‘Tailored Carbon Tip’ and ‘3D Radius Sidecut’. All these new technologies are further improving an already outstanding ski. The Kenja 88 is a serious ski for those women that want a race inspired feel on-trail with the ability to get out for some freeride laps. The Volkl Kenja 88 remains one of the most versatile options for advanced skiers, now more refined than ever! Whether you’re enjoying carving up the groomers or tackling new terrain off-trail full noise, these skis give you options. 3D Radius Sidecut brings a whole new level of versatility to these skis. A longer tip and tail radius allows for stability at high speeds while a shorter centre radius keeps the skis lively and quick at slower speeds. The Tailored Titanal Frame construction along with a Tailored Carbon Tip help to keep these skis composed in any conditions which makes them great for New Zealand. From powder laps to carving firm groomers, the Kenja 88 always feels like the right option.

Tailored Titanal Frame
The Titanal Frame with a thickness of 0,7 mm is integrated along the sidewall and into tip and tail area of the ski. This way the ski provides the stability and dampening that every experienced skier expects, at the most critical spots on the tip and tail of the ski. A second thinner Titanal layer (0,3 mm) under the binding delivers the necessary strength to the ski. This way the binding screws offer the most reliable hold even in the toughest conditions and the super thin sheet allows a soft flex in the mid-body. The last sheet runs directly underneath the core for added support. Due to this highly complex construction skiers experience a previously unknown combination of liveliness and high-speed stability.
3D Radius Sidecut
Usage of long radii at tip and tail for big turns and high speed and a shorter radius in the center for short turns and lower speed.
Direct and strong power transmission with full length sidewalls.
The combination of beech and poplar results in an extremely durable wood core composed of hard wood in the binding area and lighter wood around.
Tailored Carbon Tip
By weaving the carbon pattern to a carrier material, Volkl is able to place the carbon weave with much greater precision. This helps to tune the flex per the size and gives the ski an even more active feel.
Base P-Tex 2100
A sintered high-density and high molecular polyethylene base with great gliding characteristics and high durability
