You should be careful with the K2 Potion 98Ti Women's Ski, because it'll either turn you into a toad or into the best ripper this side of Alaska--either way, it's a dangerous thing. It's light but powerful, thanks to a core that combines aspen, paulownia, and stiff maple, and has a metal laminate laid over the whole package to let you rally at speed without feeling wiggly, waggly, or wobbly. K2's All-Terrain Rocker features a tapered, rockered tip and tail to keep you nimble as a one-eyed cat in tight trees and narrow chutes, but blends it with underfoot camber for a strong, powerful, and aggressive feel when you need to lay down an edge to blast down open faces or fresh groomers. K2 built the Potion with Baseline 2. 0 Freeride Stability, which carefully matches the sidecut and rocker profiles to provide strong, consistent skiing through whatever conditions you find yourself in. The slow rise of the rockered tip planes through deeper snow and allows for easy turn initiation, while the low rocker in the blunt tail provides you with strong turn finishing and stability at speed. Both the tip and tail are tapered for better soft-snow performance, and the Hybritech construction actually rolls the top of the ski into the sidewalls for a bombproof feel that doesn't get hung up rocks, trees, and your inside edge like traditional vertical sidewalls. The Potion also has built-in tip and tail attachments for K2 skins, so you don't have to waist any precious time fiddling with your gear at the trailhead.
