    • The Völkl Kenja skis really excel on groomed runs, but they will hold their own when steered off-piste into soft snow and powder
    • Women-specific wood core uses lightweight and structurally sound balsa wood along with poplar, creating a core that's lighter and more flexible than comparable unisex skis
    • 2 titanium sheets increase torsional resistance without adding cumbersome weight
    • Stiff flex zone in front adds stability, and medium flex underfoot offers a smooth transition to the soft tail that aids in turning on groomers and maneuvering in pow
    • Dimension-3 sidecut results in an elongated sidecut shape that, when engaged, contacts the snow evenly for an exceptionally smooth ride
    • Wide, stiff tips and narrow, soft tails enhance the natural motions of female skiers, ease turn initiation and conserve energy
    • Directional twin-tip construction excels when skiing forward and gives you the option of riding switch if you need
    • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
    • Vertical sidewalls provide excellent grip, stability and sensitivity

    by fromfabulous ski I ski 2-3 times per week. I have demo'd several 'all mountain 'skis this year including Salomon "Lady" and Volkl "ara". These skis are by far the best of the 'all mountain' bunch. Extremely smooth, will not catch edges, easy to turn, floats through chop and powder while still holding solid edges on groomed runs. Hyper light.

    by fromSkis that put a smile on my face I absolutely love these skis, they put a smile on my face in all conditions. In hardpack groomers and ice they grip like none other, no worry about being able to carve, they carve everything easily. They're floaty and fun in powder as well! They're also very stable at speed which makes them very fun when you want to fly down the mountain. The only complaint I have with them is that their topsheets do scratch easily, but it doesn't affect performance so at the end of the day who cares? Most of the time I'm skiing the topsheets are covered in snow and you can't see them easily anyway. An awesome product for any advanced woman looking for an all mountain ski. I have the marker squire bindings on mine.

    by fromDreamboat skis I agree w/DurangoDoc's review. I've demo'ed some skis this winter to decide which to buy. Volkl Kenja is it. They respond delightfully and effortlessly, from first clean run of the day to the end of choppy, icy day and I'm tired & sloppy. Pretty to look at while on lifts, too. ;)

    by fromSweeeet....! I demo'ed Kenja and a couple other skis to help select a pair to buy, and kept coming back to these. There was little/no powder to speak of this year (2011/2012), but what little I found was fun with the Kenjas. Can't wait for 2012/2013!

    by fromI love my Kenja's !!!!! I bought my Kenja's this winter based on online reviews. I was again amazed how much difference gear makes. I came from Atomic Supercross, not bad but nothing special either. Skiing in Zermatt, the runs are often steep and icy, but with my Kenja's I felt more save and stable than ever. They really added one or two levels to my skiing abilities, just by feeling secure and by saving me energy. Also skiing in bad sight was hardly a problem any more. I was just floating on the snow. Only going really fast straight downhill was a little tricky, I really had to keep my weight on the front of my ski's and felt them shaking under me. But that was a tiny con with ski's that really ad to having a great skiing trip, at least 6-8 hours a day !!!

    by fromFun and forgiving! The bottom line is that these are great ice grippers. They float in the powder and cut through the chop! I really needed a ski upgrade after a period too embarrassing to mention. I also bought these based on the reviews and availability at REI. I could not be more pleased with the purchase. I just spent six days skiing these in every condition imaginable. WOW! Great job Volkl! Very light weight and versatile, you won't be disappointed. I also purchased the marker bindings from REI. The skis are wide but they are very responsive on short radius turns and in the bumps. They gave much much better flotation through powder and choppy snow than my thinner skis. I was impressed with them in the steeps and on the ice. All around excellent stability. A true all mountain ski. This was my first time skiing "woman's skis" as opposed to expert men's or unisex skis. I think these are far better for my weight (115). I purchased shorter than what I normally ski as well (163). Fun and forgiving for the expert skier! Great value at REI. I love these skis!
