The Disruption line is a fantastic place for all front-side skiers who are looking for strong on-trail performance. The K2 Disruption 78C skis with bindings are a light, narrow-ish setup for intermediate and advanced skiers who are looking to perfect the art of the carved turn. Built with the Disruption credo in mind, the 78C has a lot of technology packed into a small zone. While the upper-end models have titanal I-Beams, the 78C has a carbon one. This reduces weight, making the ski more accessible for intermediate and advanced skiers who aren’t looking for a super-damp or stiff ski. The carbon still does a good job at stiffening the overall flex of the ski, and since it expands to the edges in the underfoot region, it makes for better torsional stiffness as well. Having that carbon right over the edge allows the skier to really dig in and get some fantastic grip on the hard pack. Since the skis are only 78 mm wide in the waist, they already have a good amount of stiffness underfoot, but that carbon does a great job at bolstering that performance. Keeping things damp in the tips and tails is the Dark Matter Damping polymer that absorbs those unwanted vibrations, making your ride silky and smooth. Intermediate and advanced skiers looking for a great blend of light weight and carving power will love the value and top-end feel of the K2 Disruption 78C skis with bindings.
