FULL REVIEW

K2’s Potion 98 Ti earned lots of praise from our testers with responsiveness, especially in the trees and bumps. Able to crank out short swing turns in soft snow and hardpack conditions, the tapered tip and tail of this ski improve its initiative and help create a wonderfully round arc.
