We say

A full twin-tip with a generous 102 mm underfoot, nose rocker and a shape which encourages clean-curve arcs when riding switch, this ski has heaps of character, and loves to go fast. The powerful tail accelerates you out of the turn and the wider footprint makes it easy to handle in deep conditions. The twin directional shape makes it more freestyle orientated. As with many K2s, it’s a smooth, dampened ride. It can feel more cumbersome at slower speeds, and that tail can bite through the end of the turn - but great for women into freestyle who love to ski hard in the backcountry.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
A good ski that performs well on everything and likes to go fast
Laura Westmacott
Great through soft snow on any turn radius - slightly inconsistent in the rough. Tail could sometimes stick coming out of a turn
