Product Info

We hate to break it to you, but the cold hard reality is most of us ski more crud than blower pow. If this holds true for you, the K2 HardSide Skis are your ideal weapon. They deliver powerful precision and confidence on rock hard boilerplate, and All-Terrain Rocker™ and a moderate waist won’t leave you wanting when La Nina finally comes through for you.

Product Details

Shape

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.

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.

Construction

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

TNC Metal Laminate ConstructionWeight reduction is paramount in the BackSide series. The BackSide specific TNC metal laminate lessens weight while providing an accurate and responsive feel.

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.
