Roxy Kaya Pro 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Kaya Pro from Roxy is an exceptionally user-friendly ski.
It's very "easy to ski", forgiving and enjoyable. The reviewers particularly liked the fact that the ski is "without limits" and yet needs little engagement.
It's also a ski that will help riders to make progress. You can cruise along with skid turns and gradually move on to more technical rides... up to a certain point. Because it's true that the ski appears to be less comfortable in very dynamic rides at high speed. Turn initiation is not very incisive and turns become more hesitant and sometimes lose grip when pushed too hard.
The Kaya Pro is a very good choice for all intermediate riders who want to up their game or more experienced riders looking for facility and comfort above all.
- Needs little physical engagement
- An easy, forgiving ski
- Adaptable, so riders can make technical progress
- A soft ski
- Lacks bite in turn entry
- Less convincing in dynamic turns at high speed

Who's it for?
Make a splash on the pistes this winter with Kaya Pro's brand new, strategically placed titanium stabilisers and a premium stepdown sidewall construction to give you grip and immediate response. Thanks to our new Polyfly core, the Kaya Pro is light, easy to control and resistant, while the Piste Rocker in the tip (a very slight early rise in the tip) means you'll be as comfortable on hard pack as on freshly groomed slopes. Lap more runs, turn heads and live it up this winter, both on the groomers and in the evening apres-ski.
