Technical info:
Sean Pettit has set a new standard for freeriding, and this is his pro model. On paper, the Pettitor is a ski that stands out. This is down to an extremely soft back ski and huge camber below the waist. With a camber radius of 10 meters, don’t forget to bring along the wax. Typical for K2, the Pettitor has high and steep tips, an average turning radius and rocker at both ends. K2 are also adding taper technology to their skis.

On snow:
With so much camber beneath your feet it helps to have some weight on your side to make these black boards carve. If you are up for it, you are in for a responsive and aggressive ski. It is incredibly easy to ride backward in powder, and if this activity sounds outlandish, it won’t after you’ve tried Sean Pettit’s pro modell. If you like riding hard in all mountain terrain, dropping cliffs and landing both ways, the Pettitor should be your first choice.
