K2 iKonic 84 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The iKonic 84 from K2 exists in two relatively different versions: the iKonic 84 and the iKonic 84 Ti, which is stiffer. We reviewed the first version and were not disappointed.
The ski does exactly what it's supposed to for this category where the PROSKILAB guidelines demand consistent skis that combine performance, comfort and user-friendliness.
The iKonic 84 matches the criteria perfectly. While it doesn't necessarily shine in every area, it "does the job" in all situations. The reviewers noted its accessibility above all.
Despite its slightly less convincing skid turns, it's a docile ski that's easy to ride and forgiving.
We recommend the iKonic 84 for good to very good riders who know how to carve and are looking for an easy, consistent ski.
- Long turns
- Generally versatile
- Easy turn initiation
- Less convincing in skid turns
- More demanding in short turns
- Less comfortable at high speed

Who's it for?
For all riders looking for a high-performing tool, but not necessarily an ultra stiff ski. The iKonic 84 offers the perfect compromise between stiffness and elegance, using the power of carbon and the energy of poplar and paulownia in its Konic core to create a ski that's ready to face all the terrains in the resort's ski domain. The Speed Rocker profile by K2 provides excellent edge hold and awesome control to link turns in all conditions.
