K2 Konic 76 reviews 2020
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
For a few years now, K2's Konic series skis have been reviewed and appreciated by the Proskilab reviewers.
Last year, the Konic 78 won the "Accessibility/Performance" medal; this year, the Konic 76 wins the "Best Ski" medal, which is well deserved.
The very best quality of the Konic 76 is its very high accessibility. The ski is very "easy to get to grips with", intuitive. You're immediately on it and no instructions are necessary. The first few descents give confidence: the ski's behaviour is remarkably stable, making it easier in all types of ski handling and all types of snow. You can gradually increase the pace until you can take turns at good speed, keeping the ski sound and solid on its supports.
Our reviewers (professionals for the most part) had a lot of fun with this ski. It is playful, reactive, especially thanks to its nose, which spontaneously starts the turn. The Konic 76 is a model on which you don't get bored and that conveys a good dose of sensations.
In this "Accessible Piste" category, we select skis that are particularly comfortable in pivoting, skid handling with rear pressure but nevertheless able to advance skiers towards cut handling, more towards the front.
This is the case of the Konic 76, an accessible ski at the lowest levels and able to take the skier on cut riding or even carving at sustained speed.
The potential for technical development at the beginner level is simply amazing. According to the reviewers, the ski allows for "nice progress" from the beginner to the skier who master cut handling.
The only downside is that when the rhythm is increased, the nose, which is a little flexible, floats and vibrates at high speed.
Playful, "nice and safe", able to advance technically, the Konic 76 is the initiation/improvement ski par excellence. We recommend it to all skiers who wish to progress technically, from the perfect beginner to those who already master parallel curves.
- Easy to get to grips with, accessibility

- Playful, reactive ski
- Allows for great technical progress of the skier, skills in cut bends
