The K2 Fulluvit 95 is a super versatile all mountain ski for women. It’s totally fair to consider this the women’s version of the Pinnacle 95 as they share the same shape. It does, however, use a slightly softer flexing, women’s specific “Bioflex Konic” core. This core makes it slightly easier to ski and more forgiving, which is saying something considering the Pinnacle 95 is already quite easy to ski and forgiving. The lightweight core is strengthened by K2’s Konic technology that uses denser, stiffer materials along the edges of the ski along with strategically placed partial metal laminates. With its 95 mm waist width, tip and tail rocker, and early tapered tips and tails you should in theory be able to take the Fulluvit just about anywhere on the mountain. Our three testers on the Fulluvit 95 all skied the 163 cm length.
Ali Berlin described the Fulluvit 95 as “a fun floaty ski that did it all.” She scored it 5 out of 5 for flotation, playfulness, and overall impression. K2 describes the Fulluvit 95 as being able to “rip the groomers, punch through crud and rip it up whatever the conditions or terrain may bring,” and according to Ali they’re being pretty darn honest. Ali commented that it “responded well to short radius turns and held its edge through longer turns. It plowed through the choppy snow.” It really is a super versatile ski, and Ali thought “this is a great ski for an advanced skier looking for an all mountain ski.”
While Karly Acker didn’t get to ski the Fulluvit 95 in soft snow, she still came back with some great feedback. “I skied these on hard pack groomers and they were really not bad.” Karly is an aggressive skier with a race background. She typically pushes a ski pretty hard on groomers, so it’s nice to know the Fulluvit 95 held up to her skiing. She thought they “would be great in powder.” Karly described the Fulluvit 95 as “very floaty and lightweight, easy to turn,” and thought they would be great for a “western light powder skier.” While we agree, we certainly think eastern skiers can enjoy the Fulluvit 95 just as much as someone out west. It’s quickness, ease-of-use, and flotation makes it a prime candidate for an east coast tree ski.
Elissa DeGolyer had a lot of fun skiing the Fulluvit 95. She thought it was a “very interesting shaped ski,” which is feedback we’d expect from someone not used to skiing something with significant early taper in the tips and tails. Elissa thought the Fulluvit 95 had somewhat of a variable personality, “very fun to sit back and relax and just allow the ski to lead you wherever, but don’t be afraid to get up on edge and load the ski to arc it around.” A ski that has the ability to be both relaxed and powerful allows for a wide variety of ability levels to enjoy it in a wide range of snow conditions and terrain, especially considering the ski’s 95 mm waist width. She thought it “powered through tough snow all day long,” but with a fun feel. Elissa thinks it would be a great ski for “fun seekers.” In other words, if you’re always looking for soft snow to play around in and consider yourself an adventurous skier, you’ll likely really appreciate the Fulluvit 95.
Whether you’re out west, on the east coast, or somewhere in between the Fulluvit 95 is an approachable, versatile ski that will allow you to explore the whole mountain. For western freeride skiers the Fulluvit 95 might be one of their narrower skis, while eastern skiers may find it had enough float and maneuverability to be their dedicated off-piste ski. Just don’t get too full of yourself; the ski is doing half the work.
