TRES BON PRODUIT ET SURTOUT TRES BON CONSEIL DE LA PART DE GLISS SHOP

- Sunday 21 April 2013

Très bon ski, un régal en poudreuse et étonnamment rigide sur piste, il tourne sans effort et est très rassurant dans la soupe, il ne bronche pas de sa trajectoire et met en confiance. Je l'ai essayé sur 15cm de poudre en fin de saison et moi qui vient du Snow, j'ai retrouvé un peu les mêmes sensations de flottaison et j'ai était étonné de la facilité avec laquelle il tournait, ayant une technique de novice en hors piste. Très content de mon achat.

Avis basé sur une première sortie rando au col du Belvédère (Massif du Mont-Blanc, secteur des Aiguilles Rouges). Le contact ski - neige des K2 est évident dès la première descente. En poudre (40cm environ), le déjaugeage ne pose aucun problème, le ski flotte bien. Tout juste peut-on reprocher à ce ski de ne pas être très joueur mais très sûr. Pour les fixations, le réglage de la butée avant n'est pas si évident qu'il n'y paraît. J'ai suivi la technique de la feuille de papier (cf. forum skitour) mais malgré cela une de mes chaussures (BD Quadrant) a été légèrement abîmée (plastique mâché devant et derrière) Sinon, aucun souci pour conduire les 98mm au patin et les 181cm de long. A la montée, l'ensemble pèse son poids et il ne faut pas envisager de trop longs dénivelés sauf à avoir une super caisse.

Que du bon!

J'ai eu l'occasion ce w-e de tester ce modèle K2 dans des conditions d'enneigement au top. J'ai pu donc me faire plaisir avec ce ski qui a répondu a beaucoup de mes attentes dans tous les domaines. Il est aussi efficace sur de la grande courbe que dans les sapins, hyper maniable dans la poudre. Sur piste il accroche très bien, j'ai été bluffé par la sensation de sécurité qu'il me rendait (pour sa gamme bien sûr;)) Niveau saut, il réagit bien, les récep. sont bonnes en HP, par contre sur park ça cogne un peu. Dernière chose, à grande vitesse dans la traffole ça tape un peu mais bon rien de bien méchant. En conclusion, un très bon jouet pour la poudreuse, sachant rester polyvalent.

Polyvalent mais freeride !

Ces skis mon servis toute la saison 2011/2012. Ce ski est super polyvalent, il passe dans toute neige et sur piste on peu tracer des grandes courbe à pleine vitesse, le ski ne bouge pas ! Pour ce qui est de la poudreuse, ce sont de super sensations, très agréable et facile à skier. Quand on part en traffole, il reste très stable, mais dès que l'on prends de la vitesse, le rocker tape un peu (ça reste très raisonnable). Ce ski est réservé à des skieurs (légés) qui veulent faire du freeride, jouer en traffole et sur piste !

Alpine Ski K2 Hardside

Let's face it, perfect powedery days don't happen so often right. If it doesn't fall every night, then powder becomes crud as surely as Cinderella's coach became a pumpkin. But hey, some of us would still prefer that than groomed snow and crowded pistes. K2 knows that too, and designed the HardSide for it. A generous 98mm waist and an All-Terrain Rocker provide high efficiency on pow, and the Metal Laminate construction with the Hybritech sidewalls give the power needed to blast through crud, and enhance reactivity and precision. The Hardside is easy to handle and guarantees hours of fun.  

  

What our testers say : The HardSide is a confidence-inspiring ski with which advanced skiers will get on well as long as they like off-piste skiing. The ski is under control from the first run on and its lightweight prevents from muscular fatigue and enhances the agility of the ski. This is a good ski delivering a smooth glide and a solid support anywhere on the mountain.  



Note: the sale of this item implies a personalisation of the product (drilling the skis). The right of cancellation cannot be exercised on these products, according to the Article L121-20-2 of the French Consumer Code. No refund or exchange will be accepted.

TECHNICAL INFO :

Weight of the pair in grams

  • - 174cm: 4010gr

Structure - Construction

  • - Hybritech sidewalls :

    This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. Offered exclusively on the Side series, Hybritech makes skis strong, accurate and powerful underfoot, while maintaining smooth initiation and easy exits from turns.

  • - Poplar/Paulownia/Maple core :

    Wood cores have been used in the ski industry for ages. They deliver stability and rebound while killing vibrations. They're extremely durable.

  • - Metal Laminate Technology :

    Built with two sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski, metal-laminate skis are the highest performing and most complex construction available from K2. Built from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal above and below the wood core. Metal-laminates provide dampened, accurate, unshakable performance ideal for expert-level skiers.

Camber type

  • - Classic camber :

     

Technology

  • - All-Terrain Rocker :

    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. 

    Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.

Rocker type

  • - Tip rocker :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Various

  • - Tip and tail holes :

    All Adventure skis come with holes drilled in the tip and tail that facilitate building a quick, solid rescue sled, or the construction of a ski anchor. The holes come with plugs that can be removed with a simple twist of a flat head screwdriver. These holes also function as skin attachment points for our new skins.

  • - Powder rocker :

    The tip has the most elevation and longest measurement of Rocker and offers skiers a “surfy” feel with enhanced soft-snow performance. The camber region still exists to ensure edge-hold on firmer conditions.

  • - Progressive Sidecut :

    Progressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works well on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.

Construction

There are 3 main types of construction

 

- CAP : The core is wrapped in a cap. This construction brings forgiveness to the ski. It is often featured on entry-of-range piste skis or on wide skis for a great mix between forgiveness and a sturdy core.

 

- Sandwich : The sandwich construction is a standard in terms of quality. This construction incorporates different layers of materials selected according to their specific properties. It delivers grip and stability, but it's generally more demanding.

 

- Minicap Sandwich : The perfect compromise for progression, or for technical skiers. This construction offers excellent carving abilities to the ski while providing forgiveness thanks to the Cap tips, allowing for more relaxed skiing.

Mini cap sandwich
Core

The core gives its character to the ski. There are two main types :

 

- The composite core : This injected core is mainly featured on recreational or intermediate skis. It delivers flexibility, forgiveness and lightweight. It's perfect for learning the basics and progress with soft and comfortable skis.

 

- The wood core : It has always been used in the ski constructions and ensures great durability. It is sturdy and reactive. There are many kinds of woods used, all delivering different properties.

 

Cores are reinforced with fibers. The most common one is the fiberglass, well known for its mechanic properties. Other fibers are used, like basalt and aramid, replacing titanal plates. They enhance stiffness and impact absorbtion, and also increase the ski's lightweight.

100% bois peuplier/paulownia/erable
Rocker

A rocker is a rising tip, long and progressive, allowing the ski to float better on powder snow. At the same time, it reduces the actual running length of the ski when it sits flat on the ground which enhances the pivot of the ski and makes it easily manoeuvrable.

 

Rockers are featured on skis tips, and sometimes on tails. That improves the floatation even more, and reduces the running length of the edge for an easier pivot for piste specific skis.

Tip Yes
Tail No
Ski Camber

Camber defines the favorite playground of the ski and gives it its character. There are three main types of camber:

 

- the classic camber : it enhances energy transfers towards the edges and has a bias for pistes. It gives the board more kick and increases pop and reactivity.

 

- the flat camber : it makes the ski pivot easier while providing a good edge grip on your piste runs. It is used for freestyling and riding in the backcountry.

 

- the reverse camber : perfect for deep powder conditions, it enhances the ski floatation and increases pivot. Fat skis often feature this technology, coupled with a double rocker.

Classic Classic
Type of turns

If the radius of a ski is short (10 to 14m on an adult ski), short and sharp turns will be easier. If the radius is longer, it will perform better on larger turns where it'll be more stable (from 18 to 22m on an adult ski).

 

The radius can vary according to the pressure you apply on the edge. That's why you cannot define a radius with one sole turn, it just gives you a general idea of the behaviour of the ski.

Short radii are often associated with liveliness when long radii are synonyms of stability.
