Daily Driver

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are going to be my new 50/50, / daily driver, and less than epic conditions touring ski. I had a pair of Black Diamond Havocs in the 185cm which I had been using to fill this roll, but they finally succumbed to the wear and tear of being a daily driver, so I took the excuse to buy something with a modern geometry. I went with the 181cm as a compromise for tree skiing and touring weight. You should note that the radius increases to 25m at 192. Were it not for the weight savings, I think I'd have preferred the big radius.

It's half way thru the season, and i've been rotating between these, my pow ski and DB Zealots, roughly equally distributed. The K2's blew and edge out already. Gonna have to warranty this business. Hopefully i get something out of it, cuz i only skied them a handful of days (less than a dozen probably).

K2 seems like they won't cover my claim. This is the second pair of K2s I've owned that have delaminated in just a few weekends on snow. They really do ski well - I actually love the ride, but they don't last. Not getting another K2 ski. Bummer.
