even though the graphics arnt that great i love my skis and cant wait till i have enough cash to buy some new ones.
these skis are great for just about any type of snow exept I don't like them as much as my old race skis for ice (maybe just because i dont have my edges tuned?)
I love them in the park and are good for riding switch exept i recommend that you dont mount them at recommended because it makes it harder to carve backwards.
Im not a big fan of my grafics but i desided that it would be worth it for the prformance. I also dont like the Ptex topsheet because it is really easy mess up the top if you bang your skis together.
I think they are defenetly worth the money (around $500.
Ive had them one season and was skiing 70% park and have no dents on my edges and my bases have almost no scratches (not from lack of rails and hitting rocks).
overall id say worth the money
performaned allright in the park, but i think was acctually pretty good outof bounds in the pow pow for a smaller twin tip ski
the grafics are the coolest ever top and bottom are so tight.
id say it was good for the money, k2 skis are always cheaper than other companys, got to love the sweat shop labor(i think thats the only reason why they are cheaper than salomons and other european manufactured skis)
supper stiff...but i think its nice for jumps...deffintly not worthy of buttering
ahh id say they are just allright for durability, mine are delaminating on the ends of each ski, and the bottoms are all fucked(due mostly to me hitting rocks and stumps and shit)
Very well rounded ski. You could use this on any mountain and have fun. It does not really excell in any particular area though.
Preformance of this ski is great if your looking for an all around ski. I had a one ski quiver when I first got this ski and it allowed me to do anything. I kept my edges sharp when i first got them and the carved very well for a twin.
The design of these skis really gears them towards the all mountain, despite their small waist. The nose of the ski is fairly wide, while the taill is more narrow. This allows you to ride pow well and not have much tip dive, even when mounted forwards.
The looks of the ski are sweet, with the urban scene expanding the entire length of the ski, as well as continuing onto the other sizes. Pair these with some tan/gold look p12's and you got a nice looking setup.
These skis are a great value at only arround $350 USD new they are a steal for the budget skier.
This is a fairly stiff park ski. If you dont have this ski mounted close to the center it will be very hard to do any tail butters. The stifness of the ski does make it really nice for jumps and pipe. Also makes it much more all mountain as it handles crud well.
One of the best parts of K@'s is their durability. That stands true with these skis. The skis are noticably havier then most other twins, but thier size also means strength, and a solid construction. The top sheet edges are some what weak in the area of chipping, the draw back to a sandwich construction vs cap.
