        Overall

        Being from
        Ontario this is the perfect ski fat ski. On the rare occasion we do get a dump
        on the East coast this ski works super well and even would be great for
        everyday groomers if you just ride one set of gear and don’t mind riding
        something 105 underfoot. For the few times I get out west a year it’s more than
        enough ski, especially coming off of an 85cm underfoot park skiis. I would
        recommend this to anyone looking for Big Mountain ski that’s versatile in any
        condition!

        Performance

        The ski
        boasts the best of both worlds being rockered and cambered at the same
        time(k2’s rocker/camber/rocker design). The ski performed extremely well in 2-3
        feet of pow as well as cutting through the crud and chop as the hill gets
        tracked out. Having a durable wood core gave the ski a relatively stiff
        flexibility, which was killer when the snow was scarce and you get stuck on
        some hardpack. With the progressive side-cut and camber underfoot it also
        allows you to put them on edge and carve with claiming a turning radius of 24m.

        Design

        As with most
        K2 free-ride skis the graphics are pretty wild. They did ad a nice touch an
        offered 3 separate colour options so you don’t look like everyone else on the
        hill.

        Value

        For about $750 cdn of course depending on where you buy them they ski is well worth the money. Barring you don't straight line them directly into a rock field at the end of the season they will last forever because the ski is bombproof.Also do yourself a favor and buy a set a Marker jesters and get a proper setup going!

        Fit

        They come inthree sizes and I tested 189cm, which at 20 lbs were super easy to handle.169, 179,189Measurements:138/105/125

        Durability

        So Far the
        ski has held up great! I just took them out West where I wore them through the
        ringer not only bouncing them off of rocks and trees but also hit up the park
        taking them to rails. With K2’s Horizontal Die-Cut Design the ski’s integrity
        held up great on impact to rails as well as some misguided landings.
