Sean Pettit's pro model ski, the Shreditor 120 Ski, has returned for a second season of breakneck straightlines and too-burly airs. K2 claims that this is their most versatile powder ski, and we couldn't agree more. Mr. Pettit called the shots when it came to design, and just like last year, you'll find rocker at the tip and tail, rocker contact points that were kept close together, and traditional camber underfoot. These design touches, coupled with bi-directional sidecut, create a fat, rockered ride that handles deep snow, busts through manky conditions, pops off towering jumps, maneuvers through tight terrain, and trenches groomers—all with poise and power. You'll even find tip and tail grommets for K2's Z-Clip skins, because when Sean isn't loading a chopper to somewhere steep and deep, he's wandering in the mountains under his own power.

  • Full rocker (Powder Rocker) camber profile
  • Triaxial Braid construction with TwinTech sidewall
  • Fir and aspen wood core
  • 120mm waist width underfoot
  • Traditional sidecut with bidirectional shape and tapered tip and tail
  • Z-Clip Skin compatibility with tip and tail grommets

These skis rip!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hello future K2 Pettitor buyer, you're in for an awesome time on these skis. These monsters blast through anything. From windblown high alpine terrain to groomed corduroy to bottomless pow, these skis rip it all. The camber underfoot allows you to rip up any hardpack. Getting back to the chairlift after a sick run is easy as pie. Lay them down and you can carve on anything. You can really put them on edge without fear of them washing out. Chopped up snow? Not a problem. These fatties blast through everything and are versatile enough even to ski the bumps. Trees? Never been more fun. You can throw these skis around like nothing and let them rip without fear of getting stuck in a turn you don't want to be in. Pow? Unmatched. These skis are so fun in the deep stuff. Obscene amount of rocker- you'll never nose dive- but not so fat that you're not actually in the snow. My favorite thing to do on these skis is straight-line chutes. With a good amount of fresh just point these down and let them rip! They are so stable, you feel completely confident ripping down anything at high speeds. Pow landings are just as awesome. At 120 underfoot you can send it off anything. Deploy the landing gear, and touchdown safely- they'll catch you, I promise.

A few things about the Pettitors. Ski them long. For sure. I'm 5'8 and 155 lbs, I ski the 179s and I know I would feel comfortable on the 189s. And mount them a few cms forward. Ski shops mount them too far back and you might end up with too short of a tail. And finally, give these skis a day before you give up on them. Demo them for more than two hours. It takes a couple runs to learn how to ski these, but once you do, I promise you will not regret it. At first, I wasn't too happy with them. I though they were too heavy, too stiff, and too clunky, but once you get a few runs on them and your legs learn a little, you'll never wanna go back. I promise. These skis will transform you and the way you ski, guaranteed. Thanks Sean!

One ski quiver

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently purchased a pair of the K2 Shreditor skis in the 179cm length. I bought them because I expected them to be versatile, and I want something that I can ski on a deep powder day, but still be able to ski well on chopped up, variable snow, as well as hardpacked snow on the way back to the lift. A one-ski quiver so to speak.
I have been skiing for 23 years and would consider myself an expert skier. I have owned many, many pairs of powder and all-mountain skis from all brands, but always come back to the K2 brand for their durability, shapes, and consistent flex.
The first time I took them out was on a day where it hadn?t snowed in a week. The snow was not good and the conditions were variable. I was very impressed with the Shreditor. They are very wide, but quick edge to edge. The camber underfoot allows the skis to carve like a normal ski in the middle of a groomer, while the rocker in the tips and tails keep the skis on top of all of the variable and chunky snow.
The next time I took them out was on a day where it had just snowed two feet overnight. The skis were amazing. The width combined with the rocker allows you to lean forward and flex your boots without the tips diving. They are very easy to turn and quick to stop. If you jump around, the rocker keeps you from doing a wheelie and pops you right back to a forward position.
Overall, I would recommend this ski to anyone that is looking for that one ski to take to a resort like Snowbird whether the conditions are amazing, or? not so amazing.

Flotation Device

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I haven't been on very many boats, but now I can say I own a pair of them. Like I expected, these skis blasted through the bottomless pow pow like it was nobody's business. On the corduroy they carved better than a canoe builder. At the end of the day when my legs were fried, they refused to let go. Just like a psycho girlfriend, they are relentless and can really burn your thighs, but there is something about them that keeps you coming back for more. As long as the Pettitors are under your feet you will be shredding nasty turns.

I assume this is the same ski as last year...

I assume this is the same ski as last year with a new name and topsheet? If so, wondering about the mounting point for the 179. I have a pair of 2011 Hellbents 179's mounted at +6cm based on the Seth Morrison recommendation in a review from backcountry.com that year. Love my hellbents mounted there, wondering if the Pettits should be mounted the same or someplace else. These will be used for mostly east coast freeriding/trees with some big mountain/west coast lines thrown in. More concerned with charging forward than switch performance, but would be nice to be useful both directions.

Responded on

The shreditor 120 actually has more rocker(rocker profile is not as aggressive,it has been brought back a little) compared to last years pettitor's. I mounted mine true center for switch riding wich is amazing on these skis. But if your not interested in riding switch i would just go back 2-4 cm(or even more?????).

Underrated

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For some reason, this ski has failed to accumulate the cult following it deserves in my opinion (at least it hasn't at my home resort). Part of this reason may be that it takes more than one or two runs to find the correct way to ride this ski to get a proper feel for what it can do, therefore it gives poor impressions on a demo day. I know this because I got a pair without trying them first. The first two and a half runs felt very mediocre on the Pettitors, but all of a sudden something clicked. As soon as I found my centre on these skis, they felt light, chargey, and easy to pivot. The most incredible thing about the ski is the flex. They are super stiff underfoot, but are playfully soft in the tips and tails, allowing uber butters and slashes. The flex is graduated so there is no hinge points like on some other skis that have tried to accomplish the same thing. Most skis are built to do one of two things; to charge the hill, or to use the hill as a park to butter and spin. This is the only ski I know of that can walk the line and do both, chargey and buttery at the same time. If you are expecting something similar to the old Obsethed or Hellbents, these are a completely different ski.
Hope to see this ski take off
