Description

Ski like Seth, if you dare.

When Seth Morrison stepped onto a pair of skis for the first time, the world of big-mountain skiing was irrevocably changed for the better. Instead of hopping his way down a face, Seth made arcing, powerful turns at speeds that would melt the face off a merely mortal skier. The K2 Annex 118 Seth Morrison Ski is Seth's latest pro model ski—it's designed to support this hard-charging, high-speed style of skiing for him, and anyone else wishing to come along for the ride.

A triaxial braid of fiberglass is wrapped around a fir, aspen, and maple wood core in the heart of this ski. The result is a lively flex and the sort of torsional rigidity that begins to close in on the performance and precision of a carving ski, albeit in a package that is anything but. The Hybritech sidewall gives you the lightweight response of a cap ski with the performance and durability of a full sidewall so you don't have to compromise anywhere on the mountain.

The powder rocker features more taper in the tip and tail than previous iterations, allowing for graceful, nearly effortless turns down huge faces, as well as versatility in nearly any conditions. The low-rise tail lets you plunge this ski for use as a temporary anchor, should you find yourself in need. Speaking of getting out and after it, the tip and tail skin-attachment grommets let you attach any of K2's custom skins with ease, meaning you can get more time skiing, and less time fiddling with your gear.

Does anyone know what the weight per ski...

Does anyone know what the weight per ski or combined is on the 191cm Annex 118? Can't seem to find it published anywhere. Thanks.

K2 has not yet compiled those specs for this new model and I do not have the resources to accurately weigh a ski but I did talk to a K2 rep that estimated the length at 2500 grams each.

Some Improvements

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Taper in the tip and all black bases are the biggest changes form last year. I find the taper helps float the ski quicker and allows for easier steering in soft snow. Not to much die cut, just logos so the skis will be faster than most. Seeing that many people spray painted their set ups, all black top sheets with some minimal graphics. Still a daily driver, not alot of tail rocker so the hardpack is as effortless as riding them in powder. Tip and tail holes work with k2 skins and Rescue Shovel Plus, with parts in the handle of the shovel you can build a rescue sled along with some cording.
