Product Info

The K2 SideShow Skis are here to help you take a hard line every time. These skis moderate waist will let you lay down trenches in the hard stuff, while the metal laminate construction lets you edge with stability and power, and the All-Terrain Rocker™ lifts the tip to help you ride high on the powder days. All this means that the SideShow ski is capable of ripping bulletproof groomers, muscling through the backcountry, or floating on powder.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain Rocker™Designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions

Sidecut

Progressive SidecutA combination of two different radii that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis guaranteeing improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance

Core

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

Laminates

Metal LaminateConsists 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.

Sidewalls

Hybritech SidewallsA 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

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.

Comments about K2 SideShow Skis 2013:

Just a really fun all around quick ski. Very nimble and forgiving. I use it mainly on the groomers. I have other wider skis. In my opinion this is a very good one quiver ski for most intermediate/advanced skiers. I am expert and really like it. I am 5'9" over 200 pounds and ski it in a 181.

    These skis are awesome all around skis. I downsized my ski collection to one pair and these are it. Use them in the midwest on our hard sometime bulletproof runs and plan to use them on my yearly trip out west. Oh yeah, the graphics are pretty cool too.

      Comments about K2 SideShow Skis 2013:

      This is the 3rd set of K2s for me. My other two are K2 A.M.P. models. I went for the SideShows to get a little added waist width for those rare pow days at the Summit. The skis perform like a dream. Way smoother ride, and far superior turning characteristics. I don't profess to know it all about skis...but I DO know that these were the perfect choice, and my instructor whole heartedly agreed.

      As far as the BEST USES category, I didn't select MOGULS because, quite honestly, I don't think my knees can take them so someone else will have to chime in on that.

      If you buy them, always check the tightness of the removable plugs front and back (for attaching skins). They can come loose and venture out on their own....little devils! But don't worry K2 has plenty of them on hand for just that occasion.
