Technical info:
K2´s new Pinnacle series is characterized by a deep sidecut. This is the widest ski in the series. The construction combines fibreglass with aluminum. However, use of metal has been kept to a minimum, so the specific weight is relatively low. Long rocker in front, a short sidecut radius and a long setback results in a wide tip. High rocker in the back ski and soft tips, especially in front.

On snow:
The new Pinnacle 105 is smooth and easy to maneuver. Big tips give good float and predictability. Several test riders described it as “weak”, so perhaps it´s a little too soft? It was certainly a little hesitant on crust, and it tended to sink in powder. It turns well and is easy to maneuver on some surfaces. However, it might get a little too compliant on other surfaces. At least K2 knows how to make skis that are easy to maneuver.
