Product Info

A longtime winter touring standout (think SideStash), the K2 Annex 108 Skis have been re-worked to give them snappier and more versatile handling, without losing the crud-busting ability they were known for. In addition to a new sizing scheme, K2 made the Annex 108 an even better ski than before and well worthy of your attention. K2 s All-Terrain Rocker keep this ski stable in variable snow conditions, and craves the deep stuff. This ski works great as an all-rounder mounted with alpine bindings as well.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain RockerDesigned for all ability levels, All-Terrain Rocker adds versatility and ease in all snow conditions. This profile features an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.

Flex

Stiffer flex

Shape

Freeride Stability Baseline 2.0Powder-focused long rise tip with All Terrain Rocker for awesome float in powder, moderate sidecut with low camber for predictable and consistent turns, and a tapered but flat tail for versatility with dependable finishing power

Powder TipDesigned to be more predictable in soft snow conditions, these tips are designed to strike the perfect balance of maximizing float while reducing tip deflection. These tips are designed with a gentle arc and transition into the sidecut of the ski.

Directional TaperModerately wider tip than tail maximizes the skis performance in the forward direction.

Core

Aspen / Paulownia / MapleA combination of stout, vibration dampening hardwoods and the lightness of Paulownia

Laminates

Metal Laminate ConstructionAlternating layers of wood and Titanal provide a smooth and damp ride that excels at speed and on hard snow

Sidewalls

Hybritech SidewallsA blend of sidewall and cap constructions that enables a very light ski without sacrificing edgehold.

Additional Features

K2 Skin GrommetsBuilt in tip and tail attachments for K2 skins give you the lightest and cleanest skin system available.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Great responsive ski in the steeps, powder , trees, crud . Doesn't seem to have a long enough edge for long high speed carving turns on the groomers or hardpack.

    The skis have a large sweet spot and are nothing less than a delight to be on. This is the second pair in the quiver (170cm, new 177cm) and both are mounted with tech AT systems. The skis are a very stable platform in a variety of conditions and speed. They carve and float well, bust crud and their relatively light weight help getting up to the goods more of an experience, rather than a chore.

    I would recommend this ski for anyone who skis in and/or out of bounds on conditions found in the western US.

    Great all mountain ski for off piste skiing in the west. Very forgiving and easy to turn. A little wide for really carving on firm groomers but work fine on soft groomers

      Comments about K2 Annex 108 Skis 2015:

      Picked these up at a fantastic price. I knew that it was touring ski but not much else. This a very fun ski for either touring on resort skiing. Very good in fresh snow but holds very well on ice. Not Mantra grip but close. Forgiving in the bumps.
      Fairly light for touring but will handle ice very well but fun in powder. My first run was in 18"s of fresh corn. Thought the fun was all snow but other fresh conditions confirmed this is a very good powder or crud ski. On a deep powder day would ski the Pontoon but would not like to tour on it. Conditions in the Pacific NW suck this year
      But every good run I have had were on this ski.
