K2 Pinnacle 118 Skis 2017-2018
The Big Kahuna of K2’s Pinnacle series wowed testers on an epic powder day at Snowbird, inspiring adjectives like “poppy,” “playful,” “bossy” and “chargy.” Rockered tips and tails and camber underfoot deliver an ideal blend of playfulness and stability. The use of K2’s Konic Technology—denser fir wood and a metal laminate around the perimeter of the core and lighter weight aspen and fiberglass down the gut—cuts swing weight dramatically. In fact, the 2017-18 Pinnacle 118 is five-percent lighter than previous models. A noticeably svelte swing weight with rock-solid stability, as well? Where do we sign up?
