patagonialukeThey're extremely fun skis if you're looking for something more playful rather than super stable.
The ski they keep reminding me of is the current Line SFB, which I'd say ^that about as well. Very easy to bend and butter, super light in the air, still carve really well, pretty easy to throw sideways. They can definitely fold up or wash out if you try to ski them super far forward or land super backseat, and the low weight means they get knocked around fairly easily if you're skiing real fast in shitty snow. But, like the SFB, I think K2 totally nailed the flex of the Reckoner 102 in terms of matching it with its construction — while it's very far from a charger or super solid park ski, I found myself able to ski significantly faster on it than I would've guessed.
GnorSecond everything here, best K2 ski Ive skied in a long time.
SkylineGTR_R32You think it has potential in the park community?
It isn't as soft as the typical rail rat skis that make the rounds (Blends/Chronics/Vishnu etc) but its definitely in that direction for K2. Far reach from the Poacher/Sight. If you want K2 durability it would be your best bet
.squirrely.Was really hoping they were going to bring back the 191cm length from shreditor days on the new 102, guess I'll keep looking for an old pair
anders_aI feel you, its like they only make skis for children, at 190cm... I want the 191... not the 184 usually... revolt 104 you get 188 at least.
.squirrely.K2 184 runs more like 187, at least my old Marksmans do. Old shreditor 191 were like 193. So sick to have that length in a soft jibby ski. I’m 6’3” and like riding longer skis than I need which probably isn’t a huge segment in the market lol
LINE_EnginerdK2's sizing is allot more accurate than it used to be. The old skis were so long compared to the published size. To add to that, the more rocker a ski had, the longer it would be. For example,189 Hellbents were around 200cm stand height! Pretty Sick and crazy to think bout.
K2 has updated their way to measure ski length so it is usually spot on for wall stand height now. I know for a fact that Reckoners are almost an exact match for wall stand height.
