K2 Pinnacle 105 Skis (2022)

View All K2 Products

  • Description
  • Nanolite Composite Core:This ski was built with a Super lightweight, low-density, aerospace grade composite core.

    Titanium Layer:A thin, but strong layer of Titanium sits under the topsheet of this ski. Not only does it make the ski stronger, it keeps it lighter than other metals, and also creates a dampening effect for the ski. This means it rides smoother over bumpy terrain.

    K2 All Terrain Rocker:20% Tip Rocker, 10% Tail Rocker, 70% Camber. 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.

    Hybritech Sidewall:Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

    Triaxial Braid:The patented Triaxial Braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core, resulting in great torsional strength while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood core ski.

    K2 Konic Technology:Revolutionary core design that redistributes weight to the ski's perimeter providing power, strength and stability directly over the edge for performance, while reducing swing-weight from the center and extremities for added ease and control.

    Tapered Tip:All Freeride skis come with a new tapered tip design and lower profile to maximize tip predictability. Tips with this design have shifted the widest part of the contact point further back to reduce tip weight and deflection in soft and variable snow conditions.

The K2 Pinnacle 105 ski is positioned in the middle of the new K2 Pinnacle series as the do-anything, go-anywhere, ski everything, quiver of one. Even the most confident skiers will benefit from the lightweight Nanolite core while navigating through trees or floating in powder, as much as the solid and supportive wood cores with metal laminate over the edges when charging through firmer, variable snow. 105mm is a very versatile width that will work great as an everyday ski for most skiers looking to ski a combination of terrain and snow types.<\\\\/p>\\\",\\\"desc_long\\\":\\\"

Nanolite Composite Core:<\\\\/b>This ski was built with a Super lightweight, low-density, aerospace grade composite core.<\\\\/p>

Titanium Layer:<\\\\/b>A thin, but strong layer of Titanium sits under the topsheet of this ski. Not only does it make the ski stronger, it keeps it lighter than other metals, and also creates a dampening effect for the ski. This means it rides smoother over bumpy terrain.<\\\\/p>

K2 All Terrain Rocker:<\\\\/b>20% Tip Rocker, 10% Tail Rocker, 70% Camber. 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.

Hybritech Sidewall:<\\\\/b>Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.<\\\\/p>

Triaxial Braid:<\\\\/b>The patented Triaxial Braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core, resulting in great torsional strength while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood core ski.<\\\\/p>

K2 Konic Technology:<\\\\/b>Revolutionary core design that redistributes weight to the ski's perimeter providing power, strength and stability directly over the edge for performance, while reducing swing-weight from the center and extremities for added ease and control.<\\\\/p>
