They say

The new SuperBurnin is the highest performing of K2’s hard snow range for women. It uses ‘Speed Rocker’ which elevates the front 10% of the ski to make for easy turn initiation and easy transitions. It also uses a ‘Bioflex’ core which uses a combination of Aspen, Paulowina and Bamboo wood to create a lively response.

We say

This is another powerful ski which can really deliver at a high level. The beauty of the SuperBurnin is that it also manages to be forgiving and easy to use at lower speeds. It feels almost like a low level recreational ski when making turns at a slower pace, however once you start to ramp it up with more pressure, edge angle and speed it delivers the goods with ease. It feels like a pussy cat, but has the strength of a tiger!

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Cool ski! Punchy and quick in short turns, lots of life to this ski
Rowena Phillips
Easy to use at slow speeds but turn up the heat and it still delivers the goods
