Product Info

K2 DarkSide Skis 2013: Big mountain skis that are this wide have never felt so maneuverable. With the K2 DarkSide Skis you have the confidence to send it big and know that you have unmatched stability in the tail for run outs. The Powder Rocker™ on the DarkSide is drawn almost all the way back to the toe piece, creating a massive sweet spot which enables you to pivot and dump speed on command and float like a dream, while the cambered tail is powerful for acceleration and precise turning. This powder machine is not afraid of chunder, variable, wintry mix, powder packed powder, or any other less than favorable condition.

Product Details


Powder Rocker™Designed for deep snow with the most elevated tip and longest measurement of rocker, offering skiers a “surfy” feel with enhanced soft-snow performance. The camber region still exists to ensure edge hold in firmer conditions.

Progressive SidecutA combination of two different radii that enhances the versatility of wider-waist skis. This guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.

Powder TipPulls the widest point of the tip further down the ski, which retains float in soft snow, and also minimizes deflection in adverse snow conditions.


Aspen/Paulownia CoreAspen is known for its inherent strength and durability, while the Paulownia is eco-friendly and lightweight.

Triaxial BraidingConsists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control, making the ski incredibly energetic and responsive.

Hybritech Sidewall ConstructionBuilt into the wider waisted Side models and combines the accuracy and powerful performance of a sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation feeling of a cap.

Additional Features

Tip/Tail HardwareVastly increases the skis’ utility: By allowing you to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors, you can carry less weight while increasing your safety margin. These holes also function as attachment points for K2 Pre-Cut Skins and come with a removable plug.

Skin Clip ArcThe tails are designed with a concave notch to ensure that the skin clip, regardless of size or skin brand, stays securely centered on the tail.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Comments about K2 DarkSide Skis 2013:

Two runs in really deep, heavy snow. About as heavy as the NW gets. The lower rocker profile made them tough to float. Not rally the best day for a true experience on them but I'll venture over to the Darkside another time.
