Not every day calls for the fattest sticks on the wall; sometimes you want something nimble, responsive, and equipped to handle those slide-for-life type conditions. The K2 Pinnacle 88 Skis are designed to do just that. Featuring a hook-free All-Terrain Rocker, short turning radius, and a metal laminate, you'll be blasting bumps, leaving trenches on the windpack, and generally having more fun than your buddies floundering around on their 120 underfoot behemoths.
TECH SPECS AND FEATURES:
ROCKER TYPE: All-Terrain Rocker ‚Äì Designed for all ability levels, All-Terrain Rocker adds versatility and ease in all snow conditions. This profile features an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.
SHAPE: Tapered Tip/Tail ‚Äì A design feature that shifts the contact points with the snow towards the midsole of the ski, reducing deflection in the tip and easing turn release in the tail.
CORE: K2 Konic Technology with Nanolite is found in K2's Freeride Pinnacle collection. It is a super lightweight, low-density aerospace grade composite core that runs through the center and extremities of the ski for reduced swing weight and added ease and control. 5% reduction in weight but a 15% reduction in swing weight.
Fir ‚Äì Stiff, strong, dense wood for solid edge to edge performance.
Laminates: Metal Laminate ‚Äì A metal laminate construction, denoted as "Ti" within K2's naming convention, consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal to provide damp, accurate, unshake-able performance.
Triaxial Braid ‚Äì A K2-patented machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core for pronounced torsional strength, while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood ski.
Sidewalls: Hybritech Sidewalls ‚Äì Blending a sidewall construction underfoot with a full cap construction in the extremities. The sidewall section gives the ski accuracy, power and performance while the capped regions reduce overall ski weight and ease turn initiation and finish.
BINDING COMPATABILITY: We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
Turning Radius: Short
Tail Type: Flat
