Seth says to tell your mom hi.

You may want to be Seth Morrison when you grow up, but have you ever asked yourself what makes Seth Morrison Seth Morrison? The pro-model ski that blends rocker, underfoot camber, hearty width, and devilish good looks—the K2 ObSETHed Alpine Ski. Take it out on the mountain and find out how you can ski with power and agility in a full spectrum of snow conditions.
  • A short rocker and standard underfoot camber balance floatation with controllability
  • A twin tip and tapered shape make it easy to switch between straight and fakie
  • Progressive sidecut and a tough Vertical ABS Sidewall allow the ski to turn quickly and aggressively
  • A fat 105mm waist slays the fluff without going haywire on the hardpack
  • Fir wood core blasts through any conditions and stands up to aggressive skiing
  • Triaxial braided fiberglass around the wood core adds torsional rigidity without impeding the core�s natural responsiveness
  • Acid etched tip plates and tail rivets protect the tip and tail� and look really cool

i really like to shred pow but since i live in the city i need to know if these would work on groomers as well?

Seeing that this is an all mountain ski you will be fine on groomers. Demo a pair.

Does anyone know anything about what next season's version will be in comparison to this one (for example change in dimensions or rocker)? I'm deciding whether or not to wait for next season's Obsetheds or get these one's.

Responded on

Next seasons will be much fatter, with a 117mm waist, and a bit more rocker as well. The Hellbents are getting another cm underfoot as well. Next years Seths will fall between this years Seths and Hellbents. I think next years model will be good, but you can always buy this years model and return it to bc.com next year when the new model comes out. Enjoy!

Seth- I'm looking at adding to my quiver with the ObSETHed or possibly the Goats. I currently have the Prophet 100, and love them for their versatility. My question, would there be a significant difference in performance between these skis enough to warrant a new costly pair (rocker in tips/tails and slightly wider)? Thanks for your prompt answer!

I'm about 6 feet around 155-165 lbs. I will be skiing plenty of powder and soft stuff but will also be skiing lots of all mountain stuff. 179 or 189???

Responded on

A couple of years ago people said purchase a ski length, which when you stand the ski tip up in front of you, it rises to between your chin and your eyebrows. Now the independent ski makers seem to lean toward the longer, more limited lengths of ski (eg. 178 and 188 only). You want a ski that is big enough to be stable at speed, hold a good edge, but not sacrifice maneuverability. Longer skis are generally faster and more stable when going fast. The short skis are somewhat more maneuverable--although with rocker skis that may not be the case--but some stability is sacrificed at higher speeds. All this being said: Purchase the 189s--you'll be happier.

Anyone know where I can demo this ski, I live in Boulder and ski mostly WP and Copper, thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Call some shops and check around. This isn't a TGR discussion forum. Boulder should have plenty of ski shops who demo gear. Try an old fashioned phone book, or look 'em up on the web. This is one of those things that you could easily figure out yourself. I'm not trying to be rude, but take some initiative and look for yourself. That or go to newschoolers or TGR and ask. Good luck!

How will this ski do when it comes to high speeds? What about in the bumps? Looking for a ski for about 60-70% off piste/powder and then 30-40% on piste/bumps. IS this ski a good choice?

Responded on

I really don't think any issues with speed is something you're going to have to worry about. This ski was designed for, tested by, and ridden by the man himself Seth Morrison. If you've seen any TGR movie in the past 4 years, than you know that he rips steep AK lines at really high speeds into 100 foot front flips. These skis can definitely handle speed in pow, chop, and on the groomers.

Moguls on the other hand might be an issue. At 105 underfoot, that's almost twice the waist width of a mogul ski. So they're not exactly ideal bump skis. That being said though, if you're technique is good, they're definitely more than manageable. The rocker makes them pretty maneuverable, for a ski this size.

If you want to rip moguls all day on your inbounds days, this definitely isn't the ski for you. If you're looking for an all mountain ski that will destroy everything in its path, this is definitely a good choice. Pretty versatile ski for all conditions.

I am looking for a good "go to ski" in Colorado when there is no significant fresh powder. Need it for groomers, crud, trees, and a some bumps. I have JJs for powder and ARVs for bumps so want something in between. Was thinking of Obsethed, Shoguns, Helix, Gotomas.

Responded on

go with the obsethed is wide and rocker for the pow and the camber will help it carve great.

Responded on

Agreed, this ski is amazing it does everything well

I am looking at getting a new pair of skis...

Posted on

I am looking at getting a new pair of skis and can't seem to decide if I should get the Obsetheds or the Hellbents. I ski mostly resort with a bit of slackcountry( fernie,bc and castle mountain). Right now I ski on 188 Salomon guns and want a stiffer bigger ski. I don't ski switch that often so it doesn't matter what one skis better backwards. Just looking for a ski to rip the pow but still be able to enjoy the crud and tracked up.

Responded on

The Hellbents are much more playful and soft. The ObSethed is stiffer and has a slight mount of camber underfoot. If you'll be skiing pretty much only powder with a bit of groomers just to get back to the lift, and enjoy bouncy, smeary, jibby types of lines, then the 'Bents will be good. If you're looking for more versatility for variable snow conditions, you want to kill it in the powder, but still want to rail on hard snow, the ObSethed will be more of a one ski quiver option. Because of the early rise tips and tails, either ski will perform well in chop, but the Seth will take speed a little better. The 'Bents like to jib more than charge, and the Seths like to make longer turns and go faster.

Responded on

I would go with the ObSETHed. I have a pair of 'Bents and have skied the Seths, and what it sounds like your more of a 'SETH style skier. Its gonna charge groomers , pow, and the end of day crud. I would characterize the 'SETHs as a freight train.Like Jack said, the 'Bents are going to be a softer, more playful ski for 40' cliffs landing switch.

Good Wishes!

Perfect Everywhere!

These skis are perfect for just about everything (nipple deep I use my hellbents, but these would work just fine). First thing i noticed is how much these skis like speed! they perform very well on high speed groomers, and straight-lining chop on the cirque! Very nimble maneuvering through early season stumps, rocks, moguls, etc. *****Base is made of great material and is extremely durable along with the edges, K2 has me sold on this feature, have not blown any edges in last 3 years of punishing different K2 sticks. Seth has the right idea on mounting, after all he helped design it!!!! ..... thanks for another pair dreams on my feet!
bottom line: perfect combo of rocker/camber/carve for just about anything any mountain throws at you! a "one-ski-quiver" type ski
P.S.: and it looks sooooooooooooo goood!!!!!
