Technical info:
This is the second narrowest ski in the Pinnacle series. Although K2´s Pinnacle 95 hasn´t changed much during the last couple of years, the construction is simpler and it is a little stiffer in general, apart from the softer tip. Quite a lot of sidecut, some camber and a lot of rocker in front. Large taper in the tip.

On snow:
Many of the features on K2 Pinnacle 95 are recognizable from previous versions, but it is a little stiffer – which is for the better. It is still very smooth and easy to maneuver, but we feel that it is a little more responsive and more stable at speed this year. It handles the transition from carved turns to skidding well and performs well both on and off the groomed trails. All in all, this is simply a a very good and versatile ski.
