Strenghts:
Have been on Scott The ski and Völkl rtm86.

Völkl Kendo gives the feeling of a bamboo steak. That's a tough one with a cruel edge grip and there's no problem to let go of the skis in wide carvings even when the piste is hard. Even though the ski is twisted, it quickly responds to short turns.

With tip / tail rocker the ski becomes more dynamic and funeral in the piste compared to rtm86.

Kendo goes well over the fields in the piste and the feeling is good when I drive it off the hill. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to try the powder in the pillows.

Weaknesses:
Requires speed and good pressure on the ski to take advantage of its potential. Choose another ski if you cheated on the pre-season training or do not want to attack.

Summary:
Really good skiing. A new favorite.

Riding style: Pistons and pillows
Length on the ski: 170 cm
Riders weight: 64 kg
Riders length: 170 cm

Strenghts:
went for a week 2012 in St. Anton and a week 2012 in Badgastein, both piste and offpist, easy-to-swim on all the surfaces I encountered, maybe not in half-meter heavy snowy snow, swinging well in the woods between trees, really gonna be really good in ice steep slopes, good slopes on the transport stretches, safe to jump along, swing around well in lightly lacking snowmobile as well,
previous / last time I have driven a great sport, a magnificent grand slalom who did not work so well offpiste, Kendon has a totally different skiing, and I think they are nice too,
2012 is not as good looking!

Weaknesses:
sluggish to wear when they're snowy, I put silver tape where I grab them and it worked well,

Summary:
a good skiing when leaving the piste but still staying there every now and then,

Model year: 2011
Riding style: pist powder forest, less aggressive now than 30 years ago

Strenghts:
Amazingly good skis that are surprisingly stable even in the piste while they are easy-going and carrying outside the piste.

Weaknesses:
As a blend for pist / off pist I can not find any weaknesses at all!

Summary:
Has a pair of 165 long R13 skis for pist and Elan Woody R34 for off-piste. The Völkl ski is a wonderful mid range that covers the other skis to 90%
On these skis, I have a few Mark Schizo bindings that allow me to run the piste in order to get better grip and off-piste feed it fully backwards, allowing you to maintain its position without dive in the sneeze.
Recommends both skis and bindings to anyone who is tired of dragging on several pairs of skis.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Please take a quick look at the piste but preferably choose a snowmobile on open spaces if only possible, 35 years of age 48
Length on the ski: 177 cm

Strenghts:
Ready everything, incredibly allround. Extremely lightweight. So easy it took a while for me to learn not to take in as I put the edge. Best Catch I've Ever Had. Unbelievable speed stability - and I who liked my ski-crossing skis were able to ride on ice-cream quickly, they probably went on the tip or sold ...

Weaknesses:
Feels wrong to say pillows about an allmountain ski that's so bad at almost anything but of course there are more fun skis for fine powder.

Summary:
Best I had. Point.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Pist and off-piste. Hell pillows .... 34 years, went for 30 and hunnit with 23 ski days this year.
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 81 kg
Riders length: 180 cm

Strenghts:
Kvick !! Do not feel like radius 22 Take part in everything!
Good edge grip plunges through unevenness and is stable on cutting even when it goes fast. Beautifully in a few decimeters raised loose nose :-)
Sample Nordica Firearrow would be 14 in radius being heavier and felt dead if compared to Kendon. Great ski for those who want a ski that works for everything! (Maybe not 1.5m Champagnepuder.) But then everyone wants to have really fat skis. The perfect 50/50 ski ....

Weaknesses:
? No !!! Maybe cuddly pillows
The only weakness is that it's easy to scratch, but I put on transparent book plastic only to save the surface for a while :-)

Summary:
Feels like the perfect ski if you want fun in the piste like a racing car and a ski that does not care about ice stains, unevennesses, ripped loops etc. But still get a light and moderate wide skid that works offpist as long as it is not several meters light powder. Running a week at 6 hours a day would not stop going.
Is not an expert but has been skiing for at least one week a year since childbirth is 35 now.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Piste, forest, little pillows.

Strenghts:
Unbelievably lightweight despite 22m! radius. Feels like a radius of 16 skiing while providing incredible control in high traffic without feeling "worried".
Mkt writes from edge to edge and answers everything you want it to do, short as long turns.
Light but steady to provide good speed performance.
Floats wonderfully well in the snow.

Weaknesses:
If the piste is really hard (= icy) and the speed is very high, it becomes a bit more straight in line than if the piste is "softer". In other words, it becomes a bit wobbly in the forefront and does not take the turn in the same way as if the piste is a bit softer.
However, this is not a big problem that I experience, but if you compare with a pure pistracer (eg Fischer wordcup, I tested), you notice a difference, of course, when the piste is really hard and odd.

Are you afraid of scratches and blemishes on the top side and that's the most important thing, you should look up. Because the top cover (though very stylish) is painted on a titanium layer, it is very easy to dye off the edges and where it becomes dull. A week's hard skiing gives a pretty much used look, unfortunately.

Summary:
WOW! I have had the skis for a month and spent about 10 days with them in mostly soft slopes (pistachio sneeze) but also a little ice-cream and a 30-40 cm loose snow.
Must say I'm completely sold on them and they are great fun to go with "all day".
They also give the feeling that they are constantly learning them more and more for each ride, which I like.
If you are looking for an allmountain ski that will give a fantastic pistachio and at the same time give a wonderful experience in the snow, I do not think there are so many better. You could easily have these as a pure pistachio so good they are in the piste I think.

I've been driving on Salomon Scream 1.86m for a number of years (R19) and they feel like a clean aircraft carrier swinging around with Kendon.
Have also tested Dynastar Sultan 85 and 80 and Fischer Motive and these are not in the same class as me.

Looked before on just Sultan 85 but then also Völkl AC 30 and 50 but do not regret these skis for a second if you like to venture into the untouched contemporary track that you want good piste skiing. The AC50 had become even more of a pistilion but probably would not give me the same feeling when it became loose when it was too rigid and would dig down more. Especially not with my weight of 70 kg. Völkl Mantra had given one more dimension safely to the loose but felt "heavier" in the piste.

Oh, they are a 5th for me, but as the decor is worn out so easily it will be a 4th overall.

Model year: 2011
Riding style: Piste-powder-park-Hump. Have been skiing for 35 years of my 40. Going everywhere, aggressively and fast! Holds in forest and untouched as soon as it is given a chance.
