It took me a few days to get used to these guys. Obviously, Seth's review is spot on. I asked to have these mounted at +4, but the ski tech messed up and only put them at +2. I was doing wheelies all over the mountain. I took 'em back to get re-mounted at +5, which is where I have them now.
While the rocker makes all skis feel shorter, K2s run a bit long. My 189 cms are enormous. Seth isn't kidding when he says it's a conversation starter. I'm 6'1", 180 lbs and don't have a problem with the 189s. A friend of similar build borrowed 'em a day and felt like it was too much ski. Regardless of whether you go with a 179 or 189, you'll have a blast on these in the pow.
