PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The PROSKILAB reviewers were surprised by the excellent all-mountain skis in K2's Pinnacle series, which stood out for their great compromise between facility and performance.

In this "women's all mountain" category, the All-LUvit 88 shines in the same way thanks to its balance and adaptability.

The ski is happy on all terrains. On the piste, it's remarkable for its overall performance and the enjoyment it gives its riders. Carve turns are consistent and the Alluvit 88 Ti is particularly comfortable in long turns where the ski is quite simply majestic. It's extremely stable and grippy, although its light weight does appear to affect its precision to some extent.
Its lightness and the fact that it doesn't require too much physical engagement were frequently highlighted.
Off the beaten track, its lightness is an advantage due to the more vertical effort needed. It doesn't affect the passage through uneven snow, which is excellent. The ski can handle anything with the greatest of ease.

The Alluvit 88 Ti is a good all-mountain ski that we warmly recommend for intermediate to excellent riders looking for a versatile, very user-friendly ski, that's comfortable and will give its riders a lot of pleasure. It's also a good ski to begin your first steps off the groomed trails.

Manufacturer's remarks

The Alluvit 88Ti is a perfect compromise between easy handling off the beaten track and precision on the groomed runs. It was designed to surf, slash and carve no matter what the conditions. The Titanal layer and our Bioflex Konic (pine/poplar) core are sandwiched between two layers of triaxial glass fiber to give the maximum responsiveness and precision you need to cut through the crud, and for stability at high speed. With its fast edge to edge transfer that's more like a high performance piste ski, the Alluvit is an ultra-versatile tool in our women's freeride range.
