Technical info:
K2´s Luv Boat is a semicap construction reinforced with fibreglass. It has quite a lot of sidecut and a very soft tip. Like most K2 models produced the last couple of years, it has low specific weight. Long, low rocker in the front ski, with a very high camber in the back.

On snow:
This ski really wants to turn. It is best suited for those who are looking for a ski that is easy to maneuver off-piste and in the woods. It can feel a little unstable at high speed, perhaps because it is so soft. If you are looking for one ski for the whole mountain and don’t want to spend several days getting used to it, this might be a good alternative.
