K2 SuperStitious 84 (2013/2014) ReviewOctober 1, 2013
- A lightweight build
- Big sweet spot
- Easy to swing back and forth on turns
- Really forgiving and user-friendly
- At $816, kind of pricey for this category
There’s nothing superstitious about this ski—it’s simple, fun, and uncomplicated. It’s a perfect fit for ladies who spend most of their time on groomers but occasional venture into the back bowls.
K2’s SuperStitious 84 is an all-mountain carving ski for intermediate to advanced skiers on the East Coast or West. It’s smooth, light and easy on both groomers and off-piste. It’s as forgiving and user-friendly as they come.
This is a frontside ski that comes with a pre-installed binding system, so you don’t have to think about what binding to mount on it. It’s the highest end (read: most expensive and highest performing) in K2’s women’s Model Line. While the rest in that line are geared mainly toward skiing groomers, the SuperStitious can handle the occasional off-piste exploration.
At just 84 millimeters underfoot, these skis aren’t made for powder. But in just a couple of inches of soft snow or packed fluff, you’ll be right at home.
You’ll be able to ski anywhere on the mountain on the SuperStitious, but they’re most at home on packed snow and more manicured terrain.
The SuperStitious comes in four lengths, suitable for all levels of intermediate to advanced women: 146, 153, 160, 167.
