Manufacturers description
As the name suggests, the DarkSide hunts steep couloirs and north faces protected from the sun. The Powder Rocker starts just in front of the binding turning the tail into both a brake and an accelerator. Pressure the shovel of the K2 DarkSide to quickly and easily pivot the ski and scrub speed, or pressure the cambered tail for added power and acceleration. No wonder we are drawn to the DarkSide.

Strenghts:
Love! This is a ski you can always count on. Feels like being on a steam trap, driving fast and landing everything! Surprisingly versatile, works well in the piste (who wants to go there?), Kidding in the woods, even working in puckles after a little workout. Perfect for hiking or cat skiing!

Weaknesses:
Just get over to the edge of the piste, need softness and high speed. Stuck in heavy snow.

Summary:
Having run my season in Canada, had a pair of pistons along with me, though they never used me. Darkside is so much fun, even when the snow is not perfect.
I understood the skis as really stiff, but I'm girl so it's not the same weight on them as for a guy.

Model year: 2010
Riding style: Preferably deep pillows!
