"Hardside" Product Description

Construction Sidewall
Sidecut 131/98/119 mm
Approx. Weight 1930 g
Turn Radius 23 m
Recommended Use High Mountaineering & Expeditions
The HardSide is the most versatile ski in the K2 Adventure collection. All-Terrain Rocker and a 98 mm waist deliver versatility and ensure that no one will be waiting for you on powder days. The HardSide´s metal-laminate Hybritech sidewall construction guarantees a solid, stable ski when blasting through crud, and will handle firm snow with powerful precision.

  • Performance: 60% Powder / 40% Variable
  • Sidecut: 131/98/119 mm
  • Radius: 23m (181cm)
  • Construction: Metal TNC, Hybritech Sidewall, Aspen/Paulownia
  • Powder Tip: The widest point of a powder tip is 7cm back from the standard contact point. The design adds stability and predictability while skiing and is less likely to hook or grab in light crusts or variable 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.
  • Bio Core Tech: For backcountry skiers conscious of their caloric and environmental output, K2 Adventure skis use a blended core of aspen, bamboo, and Paulownia, (a reforestation plantation tree similar to bamboo) that has consistent density, great strength-to-weight ratio, and fast-growth carbon-sequestration. The core is just one component of the ski, but the result is 15% weight savings over K2 traditional fir/aspen cores and a lessened footprint, reducing the impact of the ski on you and the winter world.
  • Tip and Tail Holes: Holes in the tip and tail are not only the attachments points for K2 skins, but they also fit the functional needs of a backcountry skier including the ability to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors. The holes are equipped with removable plugs.
  • Flat Tails: All Adventure skis come with flat tails, providing backcountry utility by allowing you to plunge the tails easily into firm snow
  • Skin Clip Art: The tails of K2 Adventure skis are designed with a concave notch to ensure that the skin clip, regardless of size or skin brand, stays securely centered on the tail.
  • Hibritech Construction: This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
  • TNC Construction: Weight reduction is paramount in the BackSide model line. K2 has tooled a BackSide specific TNC Metal Laminate Construction that lessens weight wile providing an accurate and responsive feel.
  • Approx. weight: 1930g
