Is there any online store that has them in stock still?
Also i heard they are a few cm longer than the size says because of the rocker. Can anyone back that up.
backcountry has them. but theyre 700 bucks.
and if anything the rocker would make the skis shorter not longer.
ski are about 5cm longer and the rocker makes them ski shorter and untracked has them but there like 600
^so they measure the ski when its flat? i dont get it
There's more material than the length indicates, but the rocker makes alot less of the ski actually touch the snow, making them ski shorter.
yea i get the whole not touching the snow thing.
but they just straight up measured wrong?
all K2 skis are a little longer than what they say, some companies measure differently, if it is straight from tip to tail without touching the ski, or if they wrap the topsheet or if they measure the tip to tail on the base, which would give the longest measurement.
if a K2 says it's length is a 179 it will actually come out to be more of a 183, and this is if you compare it to another ski company
for example, last year the Hell Bent 179 and the EP Pro 185 where almost excatly the same length put next to eachother.
and I don't think you can find an 07/08 Hell Bent but I have some and ifyou PM me I'll make you a deal

My 189 hellbents measure to about 194. But like previously stated, less ski is touching the snow, so its like your skiing a shorter ski, despite swing weight and stuff.
nice try but thats the link to backcountry which is out of stock theres basicaly only untracked kuz they never realy discounted there hellbents at the end of the season but heres the link to the 07/08 anyway
