This brand new Shreditor 92 bridges the gap between Freestyle and Freeride, giving you a strong yet playful ski that combines camber underfoot for hard conditions with tip and tail Rockers to grant you All-Terrain dominance. From pow to park and everything in between, the Shreditor 92 Freeride Ski does it all.
As a mid-fat price point park ski, this ski does it's job pretty well. When I first got the ski, I almost couldn't ride them, honestly, I hated them. I had a hard time skiing them, ended up taking 2 runs and had to go back to my regular skis. They just didn't seem to initiate turns properly for me, no matter how I tried the radius. I gave them to my friend (a level 2 PSIA instructor) to confirm my initial thoughts, he agreed, after 4 runs he had enough. Then one of my park crew diggers broke his skis, so I gave them to him for a bit. He loved them (he's actually still riding them after several weeks). So I guess they're just not for everyone. I did take them back every now and then, I really wanted to give them a fair chance. When I was riding them, I realized you really have to just ride the long turning radius (21m@184cm). This means they're actually great for a park ski, lots of going straight and carving long turns. On top of this they're soft enough for butters and presses, wide enough for surface swaps, and have a good swing weight. It also turns out they're really durable. After about a month on these skis, a guy who destroyed a pair of Volkls in a few weeks managed to put just 2 edge cracks in this ski.
Lightweight for a 92mm waist
Well balanced on rails
Torsionally soft - like really soft, was turning the tips to almost 90 degrees by hand on the lift
Hooks on turns
Damp - I guess that's not always a con, but for these, it just made them feel dead.
All in all, if you're looking to rail varying radius turns or are used to carving ski, this might not be the one for you. But if you're looking for that mid-fat park ski to butter, press, and go basically straight on, the K2 Sheditor 92 is a really good pick.
Every broke skier is looking for that "one ski quiver," I'm going to tell you right now that it doesn't exist. That being said, the Shredditor 92 is a highly versatile ski that I ended up riding 55 out of my 65 days last year (sidenote: I'm in utah, so powder days were few and far between in 14/15).
This ski handled the hard-pack and dust-on-crust that prevailed last season with ease. I was pleasantly surprised by the stability at higher speeds and the smooth way this ski released its pre-load when arcing out of a corner, or off the lip of a jump. It was predictable in all conditions, even heavy chunder. I do regret going with the 177cm for my 6' 2" 175lb build; the "all terrain rocker" did shorten the feel of the effective edge more than I had expected.
This ski is made to compete with the Line Chronic and the Armada AR7. I have owned all of these skis over the past couple seasons and I would say I am most impressed overall by the K2's. The Shredditor 92 was more durable, more poppy, and better All-mountain than the Chronic. The AR7 was more fun for park, and I loved the way the tails released when coming off a lip. The Shredditor however plied a perfect middle ground of playfulness and every day performance.
These have definitely been my favorite skis I've ridden. They are crazy playful on groomers and fun in a little bit of pow as well. In the park, they have lived up to every expectation I have for a park ski. Overall the Shreditor 92 has been my favorite park ski I've tried so far. 10/10
