Technical info:
Apart from being a little bigger, the construction of this K2 model is very similar to Fulluvit. The 105 centimeter waist width indicates that K2 has prioritized off-piste properties. Like its little sister, this is a fiberglass and aluminum sandwich with a lot of flex, especially in the front. Luvboat has a wide tip with long rocker.

On snow:
Luvboat is similar to the other K2 ski on snow, but there are also some differences: The width gives it better float in powder, but it is a little less stable at speed. The tip can flutter at speed, but it performs well in varied and chopped snow. Luvboat turns well both on and off the groomed slopes, and it suits those who are looking for a powder-friendly allrounder that is easy to maneuver.
