They say

This is the flagship model of the new Iconic range which replaces the AMP. Some weight has been pulled out of the centre of the ski to reduce weight while stronger materials are retained on the outer core to give power and response.

We say

This ski is a class act, it still retains that typical super smooth K2 ride with fantastic dampening which irons out any vibrations through the ski. It also has the ability to happily switch between any turn shapes while offering up strong edge grip and good energy from the flex and sidecut. The lightweight construction is also noticeable on this ski, giving it an easy swingweight which helps make the ski quick to maneuver at all speeds. Overall, hard ski to fault.

Tester Comments

Derek Chandler
Strong, dependable, predictable ski. Great off piste, super smooth and easy to mix short and long turns
Mark Jones
Very smooth, great dampening, solid underfoot yet felt easy to use for a 184
