Ski Review: 2013 K2 MissDemeanor

By | 05/24/2013

The K2 MissDemeanor has been one of the go-to women’s park skis for the past couple of years. A twin tip with rocker in the nose and tail. It is stable at high speeds and when making big landings. The dampening properties of the ABSorb Sidewalls are great. The sidewalls are rubbery yet slide through the snow like a speedboat through water. The tips of the skis may look like they’re chattering but you can’t feel it. The sidewalls can also take more damage from putting skis together and hitting rails than typical sidewalls.

Another key aspect to this ski is the Bi-Directional Sidecut. This means that even though it is not a true twin (center mounted, with the same dimensions in the tip and the tail), it skis well backwards. Some all mountain twin tips do not ski well backwards. With the Bi-Directional Sidecut, you can comfortably take off and land switch off of the park features.

Besides the physical components of the skis, the graphics are insane this year. There’s a space theme with giant planets and beams of light. There’s also an element of whimsy with the psychedelic cat. And for good measure, there’s zebra print on the tail of one of the skis. Rocking these skis means one thing- you’re radical.

About Katie

Katie grew up skiing in Michigan. Ever since the beginning, she's like to straightline it. Even after a couple years of ski school during vacation, she still refused to turn, much to her mother's chagrin. Katie has since learned how to control her skiing and makes some turns. Along with skiing, Katie is the lone snowboarder at Powder7. She's a super fast, technically skilled, rider. She likes to do mad pow slashers and steep tree runs but also appreciates perfect groomers. She's ridden on slopes from Vermont to Michigan to Utah but spends most of her time riding Colorado. With her East Coast experience, she knows what ice is and believes she has never seen it in Colorado.
