I first demoed the Kenja a couple seasons ago and was immediately hooked. This ski is so unshakeable and stable at high speeds that I feel totally comfortable riding the edge of a trail—where the snow tends to be the freshest—with complete confidence that my edges will hold. And they always do. That layer of metal sandwiched between the wood core means this ski rides on rails and is comfortable pretty much anywhere on the hill. And in turn, so am, I.
