K2 iKonic 80ti reviews 2018

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

Not far from the tenors in the category in our selection of the best skis on the market, the iKonic 80ti from K2 comes away with honors. The reviewers were impressed by its agility and accessibility. lt’s remarkably easy to use and riders will get a handle on it immediately. The ski scores well for its comfort. The way it cushions the terrain is astonishing and the ski can be steered with very little physical engagement. Very docile, it responds to a touch, and turn entry in particular is very easy. The reviewers regretted a certain lack of character and responsiveness, however, especially noticeable in short turns. We recommend this model for intermediary to very good riders for cruising the pistes rather than carving out dashing big turns.

  • Comfortable
