Each brand has a personality, and K2's women's skis-which all boast women-specific molds-are all about stability. The True Luv is no exception. From the moment you stand on it, it guides you gently yet firmly into an arc, and a relaxed tail transitions you into the next one. If you're not ready to carve, it responds well in a controlled skid. Though it didn't excel in any one criteria, testers gave it a straight-Bs report card. "A feel-good ski that gives you the confidence and ability to arc and charge," said Howard.
