Testers' Ratings

The American Allround Tourism ski, the K2 Anthem 72 Ti, is for skiers with a medium to high technical level, in Class 3 or higher. This ski, reviewed in the "long" size of 167 cm, really has many strong points: easy to turn, "stable and manoeuvrable, it adapts to all turning radii," says Laura Jardi, satisfied. Olympic athlete Alessandra Merlin appreciates its cut handling at speed, but points out that at low speeds, the ski is a little too fast entering curves, which compromises the ski's manoeuvrability. Compared to the All-Round unisex skis of the same level, there are no differences in structure and grip; this model therefore has no structural or grip deficit. On the contrary, it proves to be excellent in medium and large turns and gets very high scores; it is one of the best women's skis of the 2019/20 season and gets the "Reviewers' Choice" prize for its grip and behaviour in large turns.
