K2 Pinnacle 105 Skis
Description: K2 Pinnacle 105 Skis
Designed with an All-Terrain Rocker profile, the 2016 K2 Pinnacle 105 Skis like to cut it up in all conditions. Moderate camber underfoot with a rockered tip and flat tail provides the power and stability of an on-piste performer with the effortless float of a powder ski. The whole mountain is yours to wander. K2's Konic Technology redistributes weight throughout the skis for greater performance and stability while reducing swing weight. Like a decorated Army General, the K2 Pinnacle 105 Skis have received multiple awards: Backcountry Gear Guide Selection, Freeskier Editor's Choice, Powder Magazine's Skier's Choice, Ski Magazine Gold Medal Selection and a Skiing Magazine Official Selection. If this were Highschool, the Pinnacle 105 would be your class president of your graduating class and a shoe-in for Harvard Law, but these K2 Skis have different plans. All-Mountain plans.

I had a vision while on these skis. It was of a wide open powder field, about a 35 degree pitch, a solo skier on the K2 Pinnacle making completely controlled and beautiful medium-sized turns, leaving a cold-smoke trail, and Seal's "Kiss From a Rose" song playing in the background. In other words they triggered a flashback of a Greg Stump ski movie from the late nineties, but in a good way, as in they make you feel like you're in a ski movie. Easy turn initiation, good flotation, lots of tip rocker. This is a great ski for taking the work out of PNW powder and crud and making it fun like it's supposed to be. Pretty much suitable for anything but the real hard-charging. Choose a waist width to suit your size and terrain, and if between lengths, I would recommend to size up on these. I skied the 184 and it felt just right.
