LOADED WITH TECH AND BOLSTERED AGAINST ANY ABUSE YOU THROW ITS WAY, THE POACHER IS THE EPITOME OF PREMIUM FREESTYLE PERFORMANCE
Premium materials and high-end construction make the 2019 K2 Poacher the ski of choice for many of the brand’s team riders. From buttering knuckles to sliding handrails, smashing side-hits and stalling jibs, the Poacher is freestyle machine with all-mountain tendencies. With a relatively nimble but versatile 96mm waist, it’s as comfortable cruising groomers as it is picking a line through the slack-country. Bang on mid-flex, it balances performance and playfulness wherever you take it.
A perfect blend of durability and manoeuvrability
Built around K2’s double barrel core, with a dense Fir along the edges with less-dense Aspen through the centre, the Poacher is durable along the sides with reduced swing weight through the centre. Twintech sidewalls boost durability even further, while the carbon boost braid gives the Poacher super-charged performance by adding carbon strands to the fore-body and tail. Get huge pop and rebound in the areas where you need it most.
Hybrid profile delivers hard and soft snow performance
All-terrain rocker in the nose gives the ski lift and reduced drag in deep snow while camber underfoot and through the tail keeps the ski lively and confident on ice and hard-pack. The 2019 Poacher is a seriously fun park, street, piste and powder freestyle ski that gives you the confidence to progress and get a few more bangers in your bag of tricks.
