Game Changing Skis

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I tried these skis yesterday and they changed my skiing dramatically. Although they are shorter and MUCH lighter than my K2 Superstitious skis, I ski much better on them. They initiate turns much more quickly, are far more forgiving in transitioning between soft snow and hardpack, and they don't punish me if I accidentally lean back. The absorb bumps much better, saving my knees, and do not chatter at speed, unless perhaps you are going Olympic downhill speeds.
