Description

Snow depths are low, but stoke is high.

We all love our fatty pow skis on the deep days, but they don't make a whole lot of sense as an everyday ski. So, whether you're looking to give your quiver a little more rounding or looking for a do-it-all workhorse, the K2 Shreditor 102 Ski will give you that free-ride feel you love so much in a narrow and nimble hard-snow-oriented design.

All-terrain rocker gives your tip and tail a lift over new snow, chopped crud, and wind-buff while the camber underfoot provides stable edge-to-edge transfer on the hardpack and groomed runs. The aspen and paulownia wood core has the lively flex patterns you'd expect from a wood core, but with K2's Triaxial braid (weaved strands of fiberglass around the core), the ski has the torsional strength for stability at high speeds on hard snow. The Twintech sidewall wraps the topsheet partially around the sidewall, reducing wear along the edge and preventing your topsheet from chipping off so your sticks look mint all season long. The tapered tip and tail increases control when you're coming out of a turn and lets you scrub speed quickly when that tree sneaks up on you. K2 threw in its skin grommet attachment, so if you decide to do some backcountry stuff, you can get a seamless skin-to-ski attachment.

Soft but solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great ski for crud and bumps, it is flexible, I like the double tail, turns well, even at length and is soft so forgives in the length. It doesn't really carve like a Mantra but I think the upside is it's better in bump type situations. I take this out a ton in crud when I know I won't be trying to break 60 mph.

I'm looking at the previous model year to this as a second ski in my quiver. I currently live in Ohio and use Line Masterminds for skiing but have started taking trips out west and would like a good all-mountain freeride ski. (That being said I do mostly enjoy skiing trees, powder, and natural features as opposed to riding groomers all day. I like the graphics on the old skis and am pretty sure they are the same. Feel free to correct me. My question is this. If I am a intermediate-advanced skiier at 5'9" and 175+ lbs will I be ok with these in a 189? Or should I really hunt for the 179s? Thanks for any help!

I would say it depends on what ski you are currently on. If you are going to primarily use them out West where you are making bigger, faster turns it would behoove you to have the longer pair. It would take a little to get used to the extra length, probably a little slower of a turn but, it would be better because generally you travel faster out west in some of the open bowls. I am 5'8 200 lbs and would ski that 189 cm. If you are currently on something 181-185, the 189cm is definitely the way to go.

Shred the whole mountain!

I bought these skis as a Christmas gift for a family member and he absolutely loves them! The skis are soft in the tips and tails but have a solid underfoot which makes it perfect for the park and the whole mountain!

Disclaimer; I don't own these...yet. Fortunately, however, I have the same boot in the same size as my buddy who does. He was kind enough to let me use these on a handful of days, and as you may have guessed, they were a blast. I hated on K2 for years as poorly built and soft. These are indeed quite soft and smeary, but that's what makes them so fun! Due to the soft flex and high rocker, be sure to size up...I rode the 184, and am 6' and 175.

On hardpack, they initiate an edge and hold it well, and the taper allows for quick and smooth release into the next arc. In bumps and trees, they swing around with staggering ease. Now, they really shine in softer crud and tracked out pow...they can charge! There's ample rocker, so a strong skier won't have to worry about tip dive. I'm not sure if you'd want to pick these on truly deep days, but they were exceptional in shin to knee deep stuff.

Somehow, K2 managed to nail the flex pattern, as these are soft, yet not squirrely when you point em. The swing weight is low for their size, and were actually more fun in the park than my old recoils. Spinning off catwalks is a breeze, and you can smear right out of sloppy landings.
I typically use the Faction Prodigy as my non-pow setup, and I love them. These just fit my looser style of skiing better, and I will be grabbing a pair ASAP. Don't hesitate to pull the trigger on these. You'll be buttering so much, they'll call ya Paula Deen!
