K2 Poacher (2020)
The redesigned Poacher is an twin tip that can confidently take on the whole mountain! At 96mm underfoot, you'll be able to find your edges quickly on trail. For those who enjoy the occassional freeride you'll find them plenty wide enough to float in soft snow. As the go to park and all mountain freestyle ski of the whole K2 team, you'll quickly start to see where these really shine. The mix of fir and aspen keeps the skis supportive and durable while still allowing you to confidently press and jib everything in sight. The Carbon Boost Braid adds noticeable rebound for the liveliest feels possible. For extra beef, the TwinTech Sidewalls finish off the construction with an impact resistant design. The twinned design handles switch riding with ease. The assymetrical profile is much better for switch riding as it works with your body since everything is slightly different when you're hauling backwards! For those who see the whole mountain as their playground, these are one of the most versatile options available!
Gnomes Comments: The Poacher has been renowned year after year as one of the best all mountain freestyle skis around. The new design is more durable and more versatile than ever!
