Technical info:
Last year´s Sideseth now has a little brother with a semicap construction. Compared to the Shreditor, Annex has an asymmetrical distribution of rocker and taper. The skis have high camber and carve zone in the whole back ski. To be a K2 ski, it has long rocker in the front and a lot of taper. The setback is relatively long. It´s a ski of average stiffness which is relatively light.

On snow:
It reminds us of a small Sideseth. It sticks to the surface and handles uneven surfaces well. The front ski lies flat on the snow. You will probably not be up for any big surprises with the Annex 108. It is not as responsive in the groomed slopes as the metal skies. Primarily for the allrounder who is looking for a multi-purpose ski.
