This brilliant new ski from K2 uses a new ‘ROX’ system which adapts the MOD suspension into a new raised X-shape on the topsheet to give stronger torsion and more edge grip. It’s K2’s highest performance piste ski. And it performs as powerfully as it looks - absolutely rock solid through long turns, displaying huge levels of grip and giving the skier huge confidence to tilt them over to the maximum. It really excels in this type of turn, giving a smooth ride while having a sidecut which seems to arc out the perfect turn. In short turns the speed rocker tip really helps on initiation – and once committed, produces fast, snappy arcs.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
An awesome option for ripping up the piste, they feel solid through the long turns, while the tip rocker works well in shorts
Anthony Swallow
Strong ski in long turns, smooth and quick onto the edge
