K2 MissDirected Skis - Women's 2012: Have the powder skiing ambitions of women been misunderstood? No, it’s just been misdirected to skis narrower than that of their male equivalents. Well no more compromising; women finally have their own extra wide ski that is actually designed for women with the K2 MissDirected Skis. The unmatched surfy feel of Powder Rocker™ in the tip backed by the stability of All-Terrain Rocker™ in the tail will have this 117mm-waisted monster destroying the deepest of stashes and most technical of big-mountain lines with the finesse that only a woman can bring to the table. This lightweight and bombproof powder ski will bring you to the level you deserve.
Powder Rocker™ in the tip is designed for deep snow. This large amount of rocker provides additional lift for enhanced soft snow performance in the tip and a surfy feel. A reduced camber region is still present underfoot for a confident edge hold in firmer conditions. All-Terrain Rocker™ in the tail is designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tail for variable and soft snow performance.
Directional Taper Sidecut maximizes the performance of the ski in the forward direction. The ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
TwinTech Construction increases the durability of the sidewalls. Unlike a traditional sidewall, this construction rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.
Tip/Tail Hardware - removable plugs reveal holes that can be used to attach K2 Pre-Cut Skins
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
3.5mm steel edges are durable and far more resistant to cracking.
BioFlex 3 Core (80% Aspen, 20% Paulownia): dense Aspen underfoot fused with lightweight Paulownia at the tip and tail with blended Bamboo throughout for increased performance, strength, and durability with reduced swing weight.
Triaxial Braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. This makes the ski incredibly energetic and responsive.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
|Tip Width (mm)||146||146|
