K2 HardSide (2013)

K2 HardSide (2013)
Official Selection 2013
Tester's Review

A perennial favorite from K2, the HardSide impressed again. One Utah tester called it "a no-brainer" and praised its easy turn initiation and willingness to hook up and finish the arc. Rocker helps it in chalky bumps, trees, and springlike slop, yet it carves like a race ski on firm snow. The HardSide is backcountry-minded but has the mettle for almost anything.
