K2 DISRUPTION 82 TI * GROOMERS * EDITORS’ CHOICE

BEST FOR: Railing from edge-to-edge at high speed

K2 Disruption
Editors' Choice

Nimble, quick, turny, stable, fast. In other words, hold on. K2’s new on-piste ski family kept even the hardest-charging testers grinning. “The faster you ski, the better it gets,” wrote Chris Grover. “It loved to be powered through the turn,” added power carver Charlotte Fletcher. The family of 10 skis split into two constructions: metal tip to tail in the Ti models, and carbon in the softer, easier-skiing C models. All share Dark Matter Dampening, a vibration-absorbing material K2 borrowed from Boeing. We tested four of them on test day and all contained Titanal. They shared a penchant for skiing fast, digging trenches in firm snow and the need for a competent pilot. While testers had fun on the tight-turning STi and firm-snow-ripping 78 Ti, their fave was the 82 Ti. The wider width provided a platform to ski hard in any conditions, from chopped-up snow to firm groomers. “The 82 Ti rocked my world,” crooned Steve Acciaroli.
