Tested and proven time and time again as the ultimate high performance ski for all conditions. The Recon fits right in between the Crossfire and Xplorer in the line with its 78 mm waist width making it the ultimate 50/50 ski for expert skiers. The Recon blends the perfect amount of waist and tip width creating a platform that floats in softer snow and crud and combines a generous sidecut for hard snow performance.

Strenghts:
Very nice sneakers. Flies well, even though it is not so wide-eyed.
Works well even in the piste. Very fast-paced on turn, pushes smoothly through irregularities, does not find any stupidities. Lightweight ski with forgiveness.
Awesome nice ski!

Weaknesses:
Would like a little more witty response to ice and in humps.
A little in the heaviest team to be optimal top class skiing.
Featuring an ornament in the form of a sylvasst "X", which should be filed down.

Summary:
As an old competition skier from the 60s and 70s, I now go the most pist and lice when I can access. Gets top trip sometime a year. Purchased Apache Recon with Marker Duke Randonné binding to have all-round skiing with the option of a top trip. Would really like to have the new Mark F12, but it does not fit due to the elevation of the ski (the top is not flat). The nice "X" on the skid I have cut my hand on, and it can definitely be dangerous in a collision with another skier. The sharp edges should be filed round to reduce the risk.
I have taken 21 days on these layers.

Strenghts:
Works on all substrates. Good attenuation means that it stays in the "track"

Weaknesses:
Because it's so allround, there's always something more to wish for, tea x at "clean" pistachio. "

Summary:
A perfect all-round ski that works just as well in the pist as offpiste. Delightful forgiveness. Should you own a ski, K2 Apache Recon is the perfect option.
