I have to wonder if the guy in the vid Powder_Rider posted has ever skinned before? He´s walking the split like snowshoes :roll: No comments on the music, I hope this is not official K2 marketing material. On the positive side, the skin attachment seems quite nice and works quite well on skis. I´d like to put on and remove skins with the board assembled, in my opinion that would lessen the possibility of dropping stuff downhill on a sketchy changeover place. Never happened though, but it is very possible with the current gear.

What are the poles? They seem to be quite short 3-piece poles with a voile style pin for the lower part and a flock flock upper for adjustability.

We've been testing it a couple of days in the Pyrenees.
I haven't tried the boot and system as the boot we have for testing is too small, but I've tried the board with specific bindings.

The conditions were powder and spring snow. The board rides great, it floats really good in powder even it was a bit short than what I usually ride. It skins quite good also due to the flat section under the feet.
It's very easy to ride, with a good edge to edge transition. I didn't have the chance to ride hardpack yet but it looks quite solid.

The channel thing is good. I'm not so obssessed with my stance, I just set it at the beginning of the season and don't change it, so for me it's not a big deal.

the skin attachment works very good, it's the same one as the Panoramic. I wish more brands would do it this way!
