Shape Catch-Free Rocker™ - Designed to aid developing skiers. This elevated tip and tail assures effortless initiation at slow speeds, stability throughout the turn, and a predictable release from the turn for added confidence, control, and added ease. Directional Taper - A moderately wider tip than tail maximizes the ski’s performance in the forward direction. This means the ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch. Construction Made from PU (Polyurethane) and Composite Cap Construction - A durable, lightweight, and softer construction. Torsion Box - Provides K2 ski’s with ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy. Additional Features The Noodle Ski System - A totally unique technology for the Groms series. The disadvantage in most junior skis is the stiffness of the overall ski due to the minimum thickness required to retain binding screws. With the Noodle Tech binding system, the plate is actually fused to the ski, requiring no screws, so the thinner core provides a smooth-flexing ski. That means better comfort and control for a junior skier and, ultimately, more fun.
