K2 Annex 108
Here's what other sites are saying:
When the stars align for your long-awaited ski-cation to the Alps and the peaks just are emerging from a month-long snow storm, you might want to try to bring the K2 Annex 108 Ski as your carry-on so you can hit the ground skiing. (Having the Annex 108 lost in bowels of Newark ... let's not think about it.) Born from the SideStash, the Annex 108 is touring ski who loves the backcountry, untouched bowls, and narrowchutes of hedonistic pleasure. K2 knew it had a good thing going with the SideStash, but everything must join the 21st century at some point. Enter the Annex 108. K2 took the essentials of the Sidestash, like the wood core, metal laminate, and Hybritech sidewall, and tweaked the rocker profile. Now, on the Annex 108, you have more control while touring without missing an ounce of edge grip as you churn through chunder or carve a sweet line down fresh corduroy. The all-terrain rocker still has positive camber underfoot, but the tip has a longer and lower rise and the ski has a kicktail for easier handling over all terrain. The wood blend core is sandwiched between metal laminate consisting of Titanal and fiberglass. This damps vibrations, reduces chatter, and gives you precision when turning. HybriTech Sidewall construction is a unique amalgam of sidewall and cap construction, resulting in a lightweight, turnable ski with power and accuracy for variable conditions.While creating roller-coaster style GS forces down groomers is fun, the Annex is 108mm underfoot for pure powder satisfaction. K2 tailored the tip to deflect snow as you bunny-hop your way down an immaculate palate of snow. If you need one ski that does just about everything from on-piste edged turns to shooting down tight shoots to hiking up and skiing down pristine powder, you'll be happy to have the Annex 108 below you.
The K2 Annex 108 is an entirely new freeride ski that picks up where the award winning SideStash left off. These K2 touring skis feature tip-taper for easy initiation in soft snow, a kick-tail for maneuverability, and a metal construction for the stability required to charge tight chutes, rip untouched bowls, or blast through your favorite stash with rock solid confidence and control. Powder Tip deflects snow to keep you moving fast through powder. Tapered Tip and Tail provide excellent handling on any terrain. ZCLIP Skin Compatible with Skin Grommets.
