K2 iKonic 84 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The K2 iKonic 84 exists in two relatively different versions: the K2 iKonic 84 and the K2 iKonic 84 Ti, which is stiffer. We tested the first version and were not disappointed.
The ski fulfills the criteria set by PROSKILAB for this category: a solid ski that combines performance, smoothness, and accessibility.
The K2 iKonic 84 does not necessarily shine in every area, but it "does the job" in all situations. The testers were most impressed by its accessibility.
Although it lags behind its competitors in skidded turns, it is a quiet forgiving ski that is easy to control.
We recommend the iKonic 84 for strong to advanced skiers who know how to carve and are looking for an easy predictable ski.
- Long turns
- Edge grip
- Easy turn initiation
- Not great in skidded turns
- More demanding in short turns
- Less comfortable at high speed

Who's it for?
All skiers are looking for a high-performance ski, but not necessarily an ultra-stiff one. The iKonic 84 offers the perfect compromise between stiffness and finesse, using the power of carbon and the liveliness of poplar and paulownia in its Konic core to create a ski that is ready to face all the terrain the resort has to offer. The K2 Speed Rocker profile provides superb edge grip and excellent control to easily link turns in all conditions.
