When the planets align for your long-awaited ski-cation to Portillo and the peaks are emerging from a month-long snow storm, you'll be happy you brought along the K2 Annex 108 Ski. Born from the SideStash of yore, the Annex 108 is a touring ski that loves the backcountry, untouched bowls, and couloirs of all shapes and sizes. K2 realized people loved the SideStash, for good reason, but everything must join the present at some point. So along comes 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, with the all-terrain rocker, you can go straight from enjoying uncut fields of bliss to plowing through chunder. 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. The HybriTech sidewall gives you the best of both worlds; the lightweight responsiveness of cap construction, with the durability and power of a true sidewall.For those days when you just can't stomach the thought of waiting in lift lines, strap K2's custom skins to the tip and tail skin-attachment grommets and experience blissful skinning as you earn your turns.
