I just ordered the K2 Sidestash in a 181, and I’m stoked!
They are 108mm underfoot, with an all-terrain rocker in the tip, making them a great powder ski, and maneuverable in tight chutes.
The geometry is very similar to the big-mountain killer, the K2 Coomba. Their stiffer tail, along with a vertical sidewall construction makes for a great carving ski on the groomers, and gives them the beef needed to blast through crud.
Plus, the flat-tails make them useful for backcountry, and ski-mountaineering endeavors. Yea, twin-tips are cool, but you probably won’t be skiing backwards where these guns will take you.
