They say

K2 are a company that have had a very long history in developing women’s specific ski. Their range is enormous with the new Potion being developed to float in the powder and tackle the steepest frontside groomers.

We say

This is another all mountain ski which is exceptionally easy to use. It has a lovely connected feeling when initiating the turn and then feels solid and capable when making all types of turn shapes on the piste.  Moving up to high speeds on hard snow, expert skiers will probably want a stiffer flex, but overall they perform very well for an all mountain ski. It’s in deeper conditions away from the piste that the Potion really excels, it feels floaty, easy to steer and genuinely capable of dealing with deep conditions. This is a hard ski to fault and works really well in all conditions and terrain.
