Technical info:
This is the fattest new model we've seen in recent years. It has a fibreglass sandwich with a lot of rocker in front as well as at the back. The skis are soft, especially in the tips. The surface area is greater than any other ski in the test. A short sidecut radius in the back ski, a little longer at the waist. Camber is very high at the waist (16mR). A very short setback gives one of the widest tails in the history of ski making.

On snow:
A real fat ski from K2, but is it too soft considering the rocker? This combination does not benefit maneuverability, and a ski with a very wide back ski can be a challenge, especially on hard surfaces. The rocker in the back ski saves it though. It floats like a dream and turns well as long as the speed is not too high. It tends to give in a little at high speed. But if you are looking for a real fat ski this winter, you should check out Powabunga!
