Tester's Review

It's like a Mantra (see above), but quicker, thanks to the narrower waist, and ideally suited to Eastern all-mountain conditions. And because there's no rocker, the Kendo might ride a little rougher in crud and bumps than the newly rockered Mantra does, but testers loved the rebound, perhaps a little nostalgically. It's hard to imagine, especially on what passes for hardpack at Snowbird, why you'd need a narrower ski: Edge-grip is unassailable and the flex is supple. "Follows the terrain like a Swiss train," said Hogen
