Every ski in K2’s line features rocker this season. In addition to floating a ski, rocker can be designed to help initiate a turn. Such is the case with the easy-skiing Aftershock. And where skis like the Nordica Enforcer and Völkl Kendo require near-constant attention, it’s possible to relax on the Aftershock—the slightly rockered tip lets it dive into turns with just a hint of pressure. Our bigger, faster testers found it a bit too quiet and easy, but our lighter and midsize skiers found it just right. 130/86/114;
