The new 108 mm-waisted Sidekick may belong to K2's Backside collection, but testers say the Sidekick skis like an All-Mountain ski with powder capabilities. "It's easy in anything—from bumps to powder and even short turns on corduroy," said Alder. All-Terrain Rocker adds an elevated tip for variable snow and powder performance as well as significant camber underfoot for edge hold. Touring features include clips and holes in the tip and tail to attach skins. K2's women-specific Bioflex 3 construction combines denser wood underfoot with lightweight wood in the tip and tail to reduce swing weight and make the ski easier to flex. "This is a great ski for women who ski the frontside confidently and want to expand their playground," said Bremner.
