Carves up corduroy faster than a Christmas turkey!

We say

The new Super Charger is immediately easy to ski, with excellent levels of grip, particularly through short turns. Like a lot of the K2’s we tested, it has a super smooth ride, which helps make it an easy ski to use on hard snow conditions. There’s really strong edge grip available when cranked onto the edge, and in long turns it handles speed on hard snow with ease. Some testers felt that it needed more of a rebound coming out of the turn, but overall this is a fantastic new ski.

Tester Comments

Dougie Crawford
Felt soft at first, but forgiving and easy to use. Nice for shorts and surprisingly strong in longs
Mark Jones
Very smooth, easy to use. Strong edge grip on the edge, feels best suited to longs
