      • Reviewed Ski Size: 179 (147-120-141) Review:

        I got the K2 Shreditor 120 aka. The Pettitor in 189cm for dirty cheap as a pre-season rental ski. (I think its the 14/15 model)

        1.)Some basic facts:

        - avaiable in the lengths: 169/ 179/ 189.
        - 120mm underfoot
        - Lots of rocker in the tips and tails
        - About 1cm of camber underfoot
        - A little bit taper in the tips as well as in the tails
        - I am 6'2" and 170Ibs
        - Dimensions werent changed since the 12/13 model


        2.) Setup:

        - K2 Shreditor 120 in 189cm (measures actually around 193cm)
        - Salomon Z12 (rental) on +4 in the scale at the side. Its about -6cm back from center (?)
        - Lange RX 120
        - Using it as a pow and fun ski for Revelstoke/B.C.

        3.)Performance

        Groomers:
        We all know that a ski with 120 underfoot isnt made for groomers, but sometimes you have to ski them ;)
        The tips as well as the tails are super jittery when your skiing faster than a turtle. But its manageable. The ski holds an edge on ice plates, crusty snow or windblown stuff pretty well. Obviously not comparable to any carving or narrow park ski.

        Powder:
        Well here in Revy we already had some decent powder days, plus lots of untracked fluff even 4 days after a bigger snowfall. So I was able to test them in the right conditions :D.
        The K2 floats insanely well. Even on low speeds, the tips are coming out of the snow automatically. Really nimble in the trees and stable at higher speeds. Was at first afraid of doing bigger cliffs, because of the soft tails and tips, but there was no reason for it. Didnt make any big wheelies yet.

        "Touring" aka. hiking with skis:
        The K2s are super heavy. 2,5kg/ski is A LOT, plus the demo bindings makes 3,5Kg/ski. Me and a buddy were hiking up some surrounding peaks around Revy in pre season. I can say that a 2000 (~6600 vert. feet) hike is not worth the pain for the gain.

        4.) Durability:
        Been skiing this ski now for about 16 days and it holds up surprisingly well. I ski pretty much everything and everywhere. No topsheet chipping yet (although it was used more than 30 times before) nor any big scratches in the base.

        5.) Some thoughts flying around in my mind:
        K2 says, its a stiff ski, but: Tip and tail butters are easy to do, as well as presses.Means: stable underfoot, noodly in the tips and tails. Really playful!
