K2 Endless Luv 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Endless Luv is a great surprise from K2. "Easy, simple and comfortable", the ski won over several of the PROSKILAB reviewers. As is often the case with K2, the ski stands out for its balanced flex, its very adaptable character and the judicious balance between smoothness, comfort and user-friendliness.
This "very easy to handle" ski is especially docile and reassuring, and accessible to riders with very few technical skills. The ski's comfort and capacity to absorb the terrain with very little engagement required are remarkable. Icing on the cake, the ski is really smooth and fun on soft snow.
The Endless Luv is also perfectly capable of stepping up the pace when riders want to put on the pressure. Performance is very good for this category and its turn initiation, grip and turn behaviour is excellent, although not quite up to the standard of the Dynastar. On the other hand, its rebound coming out of turns tends to lack a bit of punch.
The combination of performance and user-friendliness makes it an especially enjoyable ski, that's adaptable and will help riders move on to the next level.
The Endless Luv is the perfect tool for all intermediary riders who want to progress with confidence, or good riders looking for a particularly docile and comfortable ski.
- Very comfortable
- Good performance
- Needs little engagement
- Highly adaptable
- Timid rebound at the end of turns

Who's it for?
Designed for riders who dream of wide open spaces but who also need a ski that will weave through the trees and avoid obstacles, the Endless Luv offers multiple options for exploring the entire mountain resort. We've completely redesigned the skis in the LUV line, incorporating carbon, poplar and fir in the core. With input from our reviewers (K2 Alliance) and R&D team, we decided to move the position of the bindings and the forward mount point compared to the standard position. This gives us a position that's perfectly well-balanced in all conditions.
