Description & Specs

Seth Morrison continues to push big mountain skiing with this pow-slaying, hard-charging fall line machine. A new tip profile initiates more predictability in erratic snow and the tail rocker/kick-tail releases easily in narrow, concave chutes. This freeride ski has a new design that is built specifically to meet Seth's demands for stability and control while flashing the most technical lines. Speed is your friend.

Technology

Powder-rocker
ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility
CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound

This tip has the most elevation and longest measurement of Rocker and offers skiers a “surfy” feel with enhanced soft-snow performance. The camber region still exists to ensure edge-hold on firmer conditions.

Simply put, Powder Rocker provides unmatched flotation in deep snow.
Powder Rocker
Triaxial-braid
The patented Triaxial Braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core, resulting in great torsional strength while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood core ski.
Wood-core
K2 uses a variety of wood cores for energy, rebound, and a liveliness only found in wood core skis. Our wood cores consist of a blend of different species of wood based on the desired flex and target performance of the ski.
Directional-taper
Moderately wider tip than tail maximizes the skis performance in the forward direction. This means the ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
Skin-grommets
The new freeride tip and tail grommets are a clean, simple design that no longer requires a plug. The durable rubber coating disguises a slit designed to accommodate both the Z clip for our skin attachments, and the components to build a rescue sled.
Powder-tip
Designed to be more predictable in soft snow conditions, these tips are designed to strike the perfect balance of maximizing float while reducing tip deflection. These tips are designed with a gentle arc and transition into the sidecut of the ski.
Progressive-sidecut
Progressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works well on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
Hybritech-sidewall
Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

      I use this ski for any days over 10 cm. They do everything I want them to. Super stable at speed, turn when i tell them and go wherever I want to go. I couldn't ask for more. Definitely not a groomer ski but I that's not what I bought it for.

              Comments about K2 Skis Annex 118 (Seth):

              Spent a few days on these this past winter/spring. Some of the best fixed heel skis I've been on. Superior floatation (no surprise) yet lots of power and control on firm snow, heavy spring snow and breakable crust. I'm really excited to get back on these boards this winter.

              I had the fortunate opportunity to ski these in comparison with several other skis including the Shreditor 102 & 120, Annex 98 & 108 & Recoil. I was surprised that I still came back to the Annex 118, even on firm snow. Sure, the 98's and the Recoils were much faster edge to edge, and provided some more control, but I simply just had more fun on the Annex 118 and didn't feel like I was sacrificing much.
