Technical info:
The little sister in the pinacle family is soft and relatively light and has a lot of sidecut. It features a fibreglass sandwich with aluminium that isn´t too heavy. The sidecut radius is even all the way.

On snow:
This is the narrowest ski in K2´s new series that has the same name as the boot from the same brand. It certainly has an appetite for turning, almost too much for some. The narrow waist, combined with a wide tip, gives associations to Salomon´s well-known BBR. This made the ski behave a little strange on tracked snow, and it is not among the most stable options at high speed. But it is a safe choice if you want to cruise down the piste and take some short turns in perfect conditions outside the trails.
