2018 K2 Pinnacle 85 review

All Mountain 70/30

AWARD

AWARD

Best Accessibility!

The Pinnacle 85 from K2 performs well and easily overall, and scores high for its agility and playfulness. Behaviour on the piste is globally good, with very responsive turn initiation and good grip. The ski is very comfortable, needs little engagement and cushions the terrain well. Off-piste, the ski is remarkably easy. It’s a shame that the tip is a bit damp so tends to float and chatter at high speed on piste which... Read on

2018 K2 Speed Charger review

High performance carvers

AWARD

AWARD

Best Accessibility!

Slightly disappointing performance-wise (unfortunately tested too short), the K2 Speed Charger is still a ski that the PROSKILAB™ reviewers enjoyed immensely, as it is both extremely consistent and accessible. It’s happy in all circumstances at reasonable speeds, easily alternating between skids and carves in all types of turn. Turn initiation is simple and you just need to lean a little for effortless carving. Unfortunately,... Read on

2018 K2 Wayback 96 review

Men's All Mountain Light-Free Rando

The Wayback 96 from K2 is a Swiss knife that will wow riders who love to explore the virgin slopes. More of a "Freerando" than an "All Moutain", it’s a bit less playful on the piste, especially for carving/slicing clean arcs. In freeride, on the other hand, it performs extremely well. The ski is user-friendly and comfortable overall. The easy rotation, consistent skid turns and flotation in powder make the rider’s work a whole lot easier. The ski will go anywhere effortlessly, without dampening in tricky snow, and is extremely stable, even at... Read on

2018 K2 iKonic 80ti review

Top-of-the-range men's cruisers

Not far from the tenors in the category in our selection of the best skis on the market, the iKonic 80ti from K2 comes away with honours. The reviewers were impressed by its agility and accessibility. lt’s remarkably easy to use and riders will get a handle on it immediately. The ski scores well for its comfort. The way it cushions the terrain is astonishing and the ski can be steered with very little physical engagement. Very docile, it responds to a touch, and turn entry in particular is very easy. The reviewers regretted a certain lack of character... Read on
