After a solid debut last year, the 2019 Pinnacle 118 further impressed the test crew. Generous shovel rocker combined with a fir and aspen wood core, beefed up with K2’s signature carbon boost braid, garnered the ski positive comparisons to Cadillacs and downhill mountain bikes. It might look big and bad, but as soon as it was on snow, testers gushed about the fun factor these planks provided. 

Strength: Flotation 

Weakness: Stability at Speed
