I like the amount of rocker in this ski, and the longer nose really adds stability in chop. The mellow side cut makes the ski surfy instead of carvy.

The Seth Morrison Pro Model. Enough Said.
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.
Powder Rocker-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. ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound
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.
