The Good

  • Great on on-piste conditions
  • Easy to get on edge
  • Predictable, consistent turns

The Bad

  • Very damp
  • Slower swingweight
  • More likely to power through crud than float
THE VERDICT

K2's Annex 108 is easy to get an edge, especially in hardpack, and skis with a damp, predictable feel in all-mountain conditions.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

A big mountain ski for advanced to expert skiers who prefer to ski at higher rates of speed in primarily off-piste conditions.

FULL REVIEW

K2’s Annex 108 is easy to ski on all kinds of big mountain terrain with an accuracy and predictability that provide a comforting level of confidence as soon as you get off the lift. Easy to get on edge, especially in hardpack, it is custom made for typical all-mountain conditions on either coast.

Off-piste, our testers found it preferred to sting like a bee and blow up crud, but in powder did not have the butterfly float. Sluff-ability also suffered, as the Annex preferred to point and arc. Buy this ski as your go-to choice for just about anything your average winter offers, but not as your big day gun when the snow control bombs serve as your alarm clock.
