        Overall

        pretty sweet ski. good for an intermediate to advanced park ski.

        Performance

        The skis are great for me. not super fast, but i don't really care, they probably just need a good wax. great for sliding rails, got some grippy edges and good pop. landings are pretty smooth too for the most part.

        Design

        personally, i like the retro graphics. the one in the picture isn't exactly the one i have, but similar. they read k2 down the top and bottom in purple and yellow, but opposite on each ski (top on left, bottom on right). the same goes for the bases, but with yellow letters.

        Value

        got these at a sale new for about 300. seems pretty good, but looking back i could've gotten them cheaper if i bought later in the year or after the season ended.

        Fit

        i'm 125 pounds and about 5'6" and i got the 159. Short, I know, but i only really started park skiing last year. its feeling a bit short. next skis i buy will probably be more like 170 or so.

        Characteristics

        The ski feels fairly stiff. then again, i'm a light guy, only about 125 pounds. they are flexy enough for presses and butters.

        Durability

        everyone complains about the topsheets. well, they do chip quite a bit revealing the blue under the black. they also have little streaks all over due to the matte style finish. i dont care one bit, but some people are picky so i need to mention it.

        Overall

        Great ski, rides well, poppy, and takes impacts great

        Performance

        Amazing ski, can ride in all conditions, a wee bit on the stiffer side but has a great pop, so you can ollie higher
        Made to take impacts off big hits

        Design

        Graphics are sweet

        Value

        List price is 625 most places sell it for 500 and its worth it

        Fit

        I have 169 im 5'10 and its fine for me

        Characteristics

        a little bit on the stiffer side but still good

        Durability

        A little bit to chipping on side wall but not as mutch as some skis
