K2 2019 ski reviews
K2 regularly treats the reviewers to skis that offer a well-balanced compromise, with a clever combination of access, comfort and performance. The Konic 78 is just such a tool and was judged one of the best skis in this category. We're looking for user-friendly skis for technically weak riders, but that also offer good potential for progress, helping riders to develop more technical turns, especially carving.

Our professional reviewers loved the Pinnacle 85 from K2: "a ski with a soul", and "has real personality".
The ski is "very versatile and closer to an all mountain back", displays excellent off-piste behavior, helped by a large rocker.
Accessibility is excellent. Its behavior is consistent, forgiving and it remains docile in all circumstances, while the rocker assists... Read on
Selected again for the PROSKILAB review this year, the Wayback 96 from K2 confirms its excellent behavior (already noted last year).

The iKonic 84 matches the criteria perfectly. While... Read on
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.

The ski is happy on all terrains. On the piste, it's remarkable for its overall... Read on
The K2's Speed Charger really lives up to its name and deserves its place among the best skis on the market. Last year, the model we reviewed was too short (168 cm). This year we tested the Speed Charger in a 175 cm, which is a much more appropriate size for this category.
The extra length significantly improved edge grip, maximum speed, and performance in long turns, which are some of the ski’s strengths.
The Speed Charger doesn’t shy away from speed. Stability is exceptional; you feel “like you’re... Read on
