Good for All Mountain
Bring the Xplorers up to speed and they're as damp and predictable as any ski in this test. Ski them lazy and slow and they won't buck you. In other words, K2 has mastered the easy-to-ski mid-fat all-mountain ski. Thanks to the right blend of width (84 millimeters at the waist) and sidecut (17-meter turn radius) and a wood core, this ski has a huge sweet spot. "Anybody could ski it at any speed on any mountain," said one tester. 128/84/112; k2skis.com
