The K2 Men's SideShow Skis will be mounted by many as a high-performance touring ski. Not only does the SideShow's metal laminate construction and moderate wise rail groomers and frozen corn with complete confidence, but the addition of All-Terrain Rocker means it puts your old powder skis to shame in the soft stuff too.
Geared towards the sidecountry, the K2 SideShow is a more robust, more powerful, sidewall constructed ski with a generally wider waist widths and more rocker for versatility & ease in all snow conditions. This ski is constructed with an environmentally conscious Bio Core Tech that uses a blend of Aspen, Bamboo, and Poulowina for a lighter-weight renewable core. The backside specific TNC Metal Laminate Construction lessens weight while providing an accurate and responsive feel. Hibritech construction combines the accuracy and powerful performance of a sidewall underfoot with the light weight and smooth turn initiation feeling of a cap.
The Hardside's All-Terrain rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. The flat tail provides backcountry utility by allowing you to plunge the tails easily into firm snow. Designed with tip/tail holes and concave tail notches for added utility function and attachment points for optional climbing skins. We recommend pairing this flat ski with the Marker Griffon binding
