2015/2016 K2 OooLaLuv 85 Ti ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Front Category, awarding it an Editors’ Choice.

The new OooLaLuv 85 Ti has several components designed specifically for women, including K2’s Channel Light Core, which has grooved “channels” down the length of the ski to remove weight. The company’s Bioflex core is another women’s-specific feature that combines a blend of aspen, paulownia and bamboo with a layer of metal laminate. The 85-mm-waisted ski also has tip rocker and Hybritech sidewalls, which blends sidewalls underfoot with a lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail. Testers gave it highest marks for playfulness, calling it “zippy, spunky and nimble,” according to Van Deursen, and “light and super easy to ski,” in Rodman’s opinion.
