Many consider the BrightSide to be the ideal mixbetween soft and hard snow performance. A 90mm waist and All-Terrain Rocker provide ample float and agility for tight trees and quick trips out of the gates, and the metal laminate’s damp, supple construction slices through crud with a confidence you didn’t realize you had.

All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.
PROGRESSIVE SIDECUTProgressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works well on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
TIP AND TAIL HOLESHoles in the tip and tail are not only the attachments points for K2 skins, but they also fit the functional needs of a backcountry skier including the ability to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors. The holes are equipped with removable plugs.
BIOFLEX CORESAll K2 women’s skis use a combination of fir and spruce in a unique core known as BioFlex, a process where a dense fir core underfoot is fused with lightweight spruce at the tip and tail to reduce swing-weight. For 2012, we have developed three variations of the Bioflex core specifically tuned to a target performance:Bioflex 1 – 60% fir and 40% Spruce – Swing weight reduction with added forgivenessBioflex 2 – 70% fir and 30% Spruce – Reduced swing weight with added performanceBioflex 3 – 80% fir and 20% Spruce – Increased performance, strength, and durability

Great touring and all around ski
This is a very stable ski for the woman who wants to ski at the resort and do some backcountry. The ski is light enough for skinning but the side cut holds a great edge on the groomed, frontside trails. The tip and tail loops make it easy to attach skins and the rockered tips allow you to float over deeper snow.
