K2 World Piste Telemark Ski

Posted

Pros: take it anywhere

Cons: skinny underfoot. watch out for boot out on hard carves

I have literally been all over the hill with this ski. It is an excellent ski to be on. I was 25 years on Alpine boards, then made the switch to Tele. I picked these up for a song along with G3 Targa bindings. Didn't know anything about them when I got the skis, just that they were the right size and couldn't wait to turn 'em.

 

They are a very easy ski to learn on. quite forgiving, able to throw in the parallel turns if I got into trouble no problem. great for carving, decent floatation in the deep stuff, not so bad in the crud too. A very good ski if you're looking for an intermediate "one quiver ski".

 

THe only problem i had with them is the slim waist. I found that if i carved too hard on the groomers, i was getting pretty bad "boot-out" where your boot hits the snow causing the ski to loose it's edge. Threw on a set of riser plates and haven't had the problem since.

Pros: Good in all snow conditions, nice feel in arcing turns

Cons: None yet

Purchased ski to be the one ski quiver in my tele gear.  So far so good, have skied groomed, packed, firm, crud and powder and have no complaints.

Description:

The all-mountain K2 World Piste Telemark Ski gives intermediate to advanced tele skiers a smooth, damp yet lively ride. K2 put a titanal metal laminate in the World Piste Skis to boost torsional rigidity so you can lay tracks in the hardpack. Fly off the hard pack and into a power glade thanks to a floaty, wide tip. The World Piste elastomeric core dampens unwanted vibrations which means you can arc out turns and straight line chutes with confidence whether you are rocking Chamonix or Squaw Valley.
