They say

The new Kenja 88 shines with an impressive carving performance due to the three different radii in the sidecut. This special geometry is 100% adjusted to the tip and tail rocker construction

We say

The Kenja definitely woke us up when we got on it! This is a high performing ski that felt like it loves speed and being pushed to its limits. It’s at its best when being charged hard where it displays rock solid stability and great edge hold. At speed it has brilliant shock absorbing abilities with amazing dampening properties, it feels like it has no limits. On hardpack at slower speeds it fells less eager, this is a ski that wants to get on and tear up the mountain! A great ski for super confident skiers

Tester Comments

Llyn Mill
A ski best suited for an expert skier who charges the pistes. Great shock absorbing and dampening
Rowena Phillips
Quite a stiff ski and you need a few cups of coffee before getting on it!
