The 2021 K2 Disruption 78c Skis are brand new this year, representing a full new line of powerful front-side skis that absolutely rip. Giving intermediate to advanced front side skiers that GS feeling they love, with enough stability and power to rail the ski on edge at speed, this ski is set to be an absolute favourite for us here at Auski.
K2 has built the new Disruption range on three elements; Dark Matter Dampening, I-Beam Technology and Powerwall construction. I-Beam metal laminate runs through the middle of the ski and widens to the full width underfoot. Overall, there’s 25% more metal to help to transfer power along the entire length of the ski.
Powerwall adds thickness in the sidewall underfoot to drastically enhance power transfer when engaging a turn for a very stable, smooth underfoot feeling. Dark Matter eliminates high frequency vibrations in the tip and tail by allowing your edges to stay in contact with the snow through high speeds, bumps and aggressive carving.
We demoed this ski and loved the damp, stable and smooth feel overall. The skis have so much energy and won’t leave you feeling fatigued after a long day. The Disruption is absolutely built for our Aussie conditions, its rough and tough on hard pack and can blast through end-of-day crud with no hesitation. This is a ski that perfectly balances highly aggressive skiing with relaxed end-of-day turns. Nimble, quick edge-to-edge and packed with a solid underfoot grip.
The K2 Disruption 78c comes with M3 12 TCx Light QuickClick bindings.
