K2 Annex 108 (2013/2014) ReviewAugust 30, 2013
- Great on on-piste conditions
- Easy to get on edge
- Predictable, consistent turns
- Very damp
- Slower swingweight
- More likely to power through crud than float
K2's Annex 108 is easy to get an edge, especially in hardpack, and skis with a damp, predictable feel in all-mountain conditions.
A big mountain ski for advanced to expert skiers who prefer to ski at higher rates of speed in primarily off-piste conditions.
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.
