They say

The new K2 Thriluvit 85 is ideal for women skiers who want to charge on piste and enjoy themselves off piste.

We say

K2 have got a long history with women’s specific skis and their huge experience in this area shines through. The ThrilLUVit just feels a really well developed, perfectly balanced all mountain ski that can handle anything that is thrown at it. They are very quick to initiate the turn, and once into the arc very reactive to inputs from the skier, you can really feel what’s going on and enjoy quickly pushing on to your limits. At speed they are incredibly stable, moving them into off piste conditions they steer well, with the rockered shape and flex feeling well judged, although the ski can feel a bit heavy at times.

Quick to initiate the turn, easy to ski off piste, nice for short to medium turns
