HardSide Skis 2012: The K2
Hardside Skis are the most versatile in K2
’s Adventure series. With All-Terrain Rocker™ and a 98mm wide waist, you will keep up with the wider skis on powder days, and with metal laminate and a full cambered tail, your friends won’t be able to keep up with you on the crud and firmer snow. Hybritech Sidewalls ensure that you have a solid, stable ski that will handle it all, inbounds or out.
All-Terrain Rocker™ is designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance with camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Progressive Sidecut is a combination of two different radii that enhances the versatility of wider-waist skis. This guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
Hybritech Sidewalls are a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions that combine the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
Tip/Tail Hardware - removable plugs reveal holes that can be used to attach K2 Pre-Cut Skins or build a rescue sled
Aspen and Paulownia core: Aspen is solid and dense; Paulownia is an eco-friendly, fast-growing renewable wood that is incredibly strong and lightweight.
Metal TNC Laminate consists of 2 sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski. Alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal sandwich the wood core to provide dampened, accurate, and unshakable performance.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
K2 products can only be shipped within the U.S.
