K2 choice, Crossfire, V-Force, or Omni 5.5

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Per the thread title, I'm getting ready to purchase, and can get pretty decent prices.

K2 Crossfire with IBX 12.0 (non-piston) for $520

K2 V-Force with IBX 11.0 (non-piston) for $370

K2 Omni 5.5 with IBX 11.0 (non-piston) for $370

The Crossfire I've read a lot about, but I'm having a hard time getting any info on the V-Force. I can't even find the ski on K2's website. What gives?

I'm an advanced/intermediate skier, 24, 6'0, 180 lbs. I'll be skiing this in a 174. Boots are Nordica Beast 12's.

I'm mainly interested in skiing off piste and in the bumps. I have no real interest in skiing fast, although I will occasionally race friends. I've already written off the Apache Hellfire, as the waist looks a little narrow to ski in powder.

I'm thinking Crossfire (in fact, I've already bought it), but I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $150. I'm also a little worried it might be too stiff. Would I ski better on something more forgiving? Would this be a tough ski for an intermediate to handle?

I want something that will both augment my existing skills, and something I can grow into...

Rieson;
I have the axis xt this year and I love it! I just tried the crossfire last weakend and could'nt tell any dif. They like to be skiied with wieght center or forword,kind of stiff in the tale. [read not real forgiving].They feel a lot like my atomic 920.Last year I had the axis x, if you want a forgiving ski that is great in everything but ice thats the ski. This year its the apache x , excelent ski. I recomend it highly. Good luck!



art.
