Hello i just wanted to ask what kind of bindinhs would be good with these? Thanks
Ian D on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I tele them so I can’t really help, but for downhill I would mount them with your favorite AT bindings. These are super fat powder skis, so they are meant for backcountry/slackcountry and deep snow. To get deep snow you need to hike or live near a resort to get there gor first chair. For an all around resort ski look at the Annex. The rocker in the tip will give you plenty of float and they are more versatile. The darkside is a specialist’s powder ski.
What year are these?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 2013 - but that was after the tech in the skis completely changed, so in my opinion, they're really worth the $150

jerry h on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It looks like you're in the right spot. THe K2 Darkside is just shy of 130 camber underfoot with a slightly rockered tip and tail.
I am 6 foot 200 lbs and a very solid powder and all around skier. Should I get the 174 or the 181?
MIKEL on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I like more stability in my sky, and if I was you I'd get the 181cm K2 Darkside Ski.
