Iv had Domains for a couple years now. They are pretty stable on the ice here in Minnesota considering they are Jib Rockered skis. They are great on rails or jumps, don't seem to really specialize in either, more of an all around ski. They are quite stiff, so buttering stuff isn't exactly easy. They also aren't the worst ski in powder that I have ever been on.
Overall, I love K2's products and these skis i would recommend any day.
So far they have been excellent for my style of skiing.
I love the look of them. Since they are a symmetrical ski, you can mount them either way, which was awesome.
I found the price pretty reasonable for these skis.
I have the 169cm version and i found them great. I like my skis on the bit of the smaller size because I love to throw them around without having any problems. The length i got was spot on for me.
The flex was just perfect for me, doing butters was super easy but they weren't like noodles. I had heard that the Domains were to soft for jumps but after taking them off jumps atleast 40 feet i found that they were perfectly fine, i could land backseat and not wash-out much. If you plan to use them for huge jumps then maybe look elsewhere but if you plan to hit the smaller to average sized jumps you will be fine.
They so far have been great, chipped a bit in the beginning when i got them, but now holding up good.
at first i didnt like this ski much, comming from a soft but very light cambered ski (atomic punx) this coniderably heavier and wider ski gave me a bit of worries. but after 1 day of riding i got used to it. it takes a bit more effort throwing around but especially on softish days i like the extra mm under the binding when landing off features. the early rise and soft flex allowed me to also stomp less clean landings than with my punx, because i dont seem to catch an edge often.
i like the performance of this ski, especially for rails and boxes, due to the early rise. i have yet to catch an edge on a box or rail with this ski. i did not get the chance to go fast, maybe 50+ mph with this ski, but i think it wont be a problem since im used to softer skis. for some reason i dont quite like the switch skiing performances of the ski, but that was probably due to the lack of good snow. when comming from a regular cambered ski this ski will take some time to get used to.
i like the look of this ski very much. pics are in my profile. painted the white tail part black, with edding. the early rise helps with stomping less clean tricks. base seems very durable but dries out quickly. skis feel nice.
got these for very cheap and i must say, they are worth every penny.
being 6ft1 to 6ft2 (187 cm) im not sure to what that measures out in feet the 179 domain felt perfect. it felt strange comming from a cambered (punx) ski which is very light to this heavier 0 camber + early rise ski. after some getting used to i really like this ski tho.
Very soft flex in tip and tail. butters and presses are a blast. its stiffer under the binding, but where the early rise starts in the tip and tails (which is minimal) the ski is soft like no other park ski ive been on so far.
so far they held up very well. i have 1 edge crack and normal topsheet chippings, which dont bother me at all. the punx, which i have skid previously had alot more edge cracks after considerably less time skiing on them. ive taken my domains only to snow domes and glaciers which means they have seen alot of rails, but the edges are very soft and get many dings, but dont seem to crack easily. they can easily be filed round as compared to my punx where i had to file for a long time.
