Volkl Kendo Skis - Men's - 2012/2013 - $399.83

Frontside speed or backside face shots? On the Volkl Kendo skis, you can have the best of both sides of the mountain. Volkl Kendo skis work well if you're sticking to the groomed runs, but they are ideal if you find yourself switching between groomed runs and off-piste terrain. Skis' design is quick and responsive across all terrain and in all conditions, and 89mm waists offer enough flotation to enjoy the occasional powder stash. Sensorwood core consists of vertically laminated ash and poplar woods, providing responsive, powerful turning and torsional rigidity. 2 titanium sheets increase torsional resistance and damp vibrations without adding cumbersome weight. Slight rise in the tips makes it easy to start turning and offers forgiving stability in crud, and standard camber underfoot enhances maneuverability on groomed runs. Directional twin-tip construction excels when skiing forward and gives you the option of riding switch if you need. Low tip shape smooths out your ride on the groomed runs and resists diving in soft snow. Vertical sidewalls provide excellent grip, stability and sensitivity. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $399.83
