K2 calls this ski a “gateway drug” and our testers certainly agreed. Performing best at moderate speeds and shorter turns, the easy-to-ride Pinnacle 85 is ideal for those on the cusp of great skiing, and will likely expedite the process. It’s lightweight, nimble, and fun for nearly everyone. 

K2 Pinnacle 85 Value Score: 6.26
