Product Info

Striking the perfect balance between a charging powder ski and an all-mountain destroyer, the K2 MissBehaved rocks the spot thanks to its versatile waist width and All-Terrain Rocker™. Whether you like to find first-chair freshies, crank through crud, or even harvest spring sidecountry corn, the K2 MissBehaved Skis will behave themselves properly in any terrain on the mountain.

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.

Bi-Directional TaperThe tip is wider but closer in width to the tail. This lets the ski perform exceptionally well while skiing in the forward direction, but the taper enables the skier to have similar switch arcs for better and more consistent switch riding.

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.

Flex

BioFlex 3 CoreA combination of 80% dense Aspen core underfoot is fused with 20% lightweight Paulownia at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight with blended Bamboo throughout for strength and durability.

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

TwinTech ConstructionIncreases the durability of K2 sidewall skis by rolling the top material into the sidewall, reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.

Additional Features

Tip/Tail HardwareRivets originally designed for durability now have the additional option of attaching K2 Trim To Fit Skins for climbing.

3.5mm Edges are thicker and far more resistant to cracking.

Swap BaseSki bases are made with inverse colors so that less material is wasted

Binding Compatibility

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

Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

I love these skis. They turn on a dime.
I skied them in variable spring conditions last year (2012) and all season this year. They were money in the powder but did great in almost everything, except boilerplate ice, where they were still skiable--just not as jolly. Some things I noticed: I tended to overturn them a lot initially since they were more responsive than my old skis, which initially made them feel klutzy, since I would turn and stop. Also, there is a temptation to let the skis do the skiing and let one's technique kind of stay in limbo. Resist it. If you keep working on your stance and carving, they will take you just about anywhere with confidence. I mean mashed potato moguls, laps down International, Snake Dance, and Felsen and stuff out the High Traverse at Alpental, anything off Northway at Crystal including Niagras, also the Doors, Bear Pits, etc. My skis were not the limiting factor as much as my guts and legs.

An opposing view? My expert+ daughter (a junior freerider extraordinaire) demoed them and hated them, because they felt heavy. However, she was maybe 5'1" and about 100 pounds at the time. So maybe not best for a petite female who likes to jump turn. A lot. However, if you are planning on keeping both feet on the ground and want something that is going to help you stay in that "having so much fun I'm having my lunch on the chairlift" mode, these might be the skis for you.

    K2 MissBehaved

    By 

    from Mission Ridge, WA

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

    I really loved the MissBehaved. I think the 102mm waist width is a great place to start for someone who is used to a very traditional ski but is looking for something slightly wider, for more stability and performance in un-groomed territory. The slight rocker in the tip and tail allows for a surprising amount of playful float. The ski is somewhat stiff for a women's ski, providing a stable, consistent turn on the groomers, without feeling too hooky. Great for a woman who is an advanced skier (or a woman looking to get there) that needs an everyday ski.

    More of a Hybrid Ski

    By 

    from Stevens Pass

    Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

    Not a lot of sidecut, pretty stiff. seems like it was meant to be a versatile ski rather than a pow specific ski. Tails got hooked up a bit but that could be because of hhow deep and wet the snow was. Might like it mounted a bit further back for float. It didn't like to turn, had to lean quite a was back in the pow. Again, could have been the conditions.

    A Little Bit of Everything

    Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

    I usually ride older Missdemeanors. The tip/tail rocker and width of the Missbehaved definitely makes the powder more manageable. But it compromises control on groomers for this extra bit of float. Personally I prefer all pow ski or all groomer ski.

      Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

      These have been great skiing all over the different terrain that the Mountains have to offer in Colorado. They have been especially great in powder. They are much lighter than my old skis and seem to float right on top of the powder. My only nit pick is that when the salomon bindings were first put on it was hard to pry the skis apart as they're much wider after carrying them from the parking lot to the mountain. Now they're fine.

        Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

        As a ski instructor and previous big mountain competitor, these skis kill it in any condition. I did a week of testing to make sure they were what I was expecting/need and they nailed every test. I love their speed management and their carving ability. It was initially hard to manage in the moguls, but they challenged me to step up my game. Awesome!

          Comments about K2 MissBehaved Skis - Women's 2013:

          In the past I've always had K2 or Volkl skis. Most recently the K2 MisConducts. I loved them, but when I moved out west I needed an all mountain ski that would hold up in the powder too.
          I just got the 2013 K2 MissBehaved skis, and I am so so happy with them! They've been great on the early season powder days, and still great on the groomer days and carve like a dream. It also helps that Evo has them on sale with the Axial bindings for a great price.
