Product Info

Draw-back All-Terrain Rocker™ and a generous waist width combine to create the ultimate, all-around go-getter. The K2 SideStash Skis are the perfect width for on and off-piste, enabling you to still get the best of tight chutes that have been overlooked several days after a storm. Meanwhile, the metal laminate sidewall construction delivers a damp, powerful platform for slicing through the week-old chop in the runout, or laying trenches on the groomers on your way back to the lift.

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.

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.

Sidecut

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

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.

      Great ski for powder days, but you can still take it on groomers. Its a tad bit heavy if you are looking for a backcountry touring ski however. Very firm ski that you can point and rip.

          Comments about K2 SideStash Skis 2013:

          I demo-ed at least 5 other skis on my way to buying these last winter. I LOVE these skis to an almost unnatural extent. My two favorite things: how they float in powder, how they blast through crud, AND how they let you make decisions late and still not run into stuff - like trees. OK that was three things, but I can't help myself: these skis RULE. Since last year's model are, like, 1/2 price I'm tempted to buy another pair for reserve.

          Rented these at Monarch last spring. Had a blast skiing powder and tracked out lines. Had to go out and get a pair. Then I skied spring slop in Mich, just like riding a groomed run.
