All new for the 2011 season the K2 Obsethed has a totally new design. If you enjoyed the older design with the slight rocker and the 105mm under foot then you better jump on them quickly as they will be gone soon. You can get the 2011 K2 Kung Fujas but it is just not the same as the Obsethed. For 2011 the K2 Obsethed now has full Powder Rocker and is 117mm under foot. The K2 Obsethed is now a Resort Rocker ski that will compete with the likes of the Line Sir Francis Bacon along with the Armada JJ in the 115mm range. There is powder rocker in the tip which allows for easy float in big snow and for skiing big mountain lines and then K2 put All-Mountain rocker in the tail which allows for great versatility when skiing in the trees and bumps. Would have liked to have seen a slightly larger tip and tail to make for a quicker turning ski when trying to carve on groomers but if you enjoy speed and making big turns down the fall line you will enjoy how the Obsethed skis even on groomers. As for mounting that is also the key to this ski, since the new 2011 K2 Obsethed is softer than previous versions you do not want to mount too far back as you will find yourself skiing too much off the tail which is fairly soft. +3 or +4cm is the where I found the best place to ski it was. If I was using as an AT ski with skins then I would not go less than +2.5 or +3cm. The Obsethed with its longer turning radius of 23m @ 179cm really enjoys staying on the side of the trail skiing all the junk snow you can throw its way. If you want something that has a little more beef to it and does not have as much rocker than you should look at the new 2011 K2 Kung Fujas or buy an older K2 Obsethed. Overall a very enjoyable ski in all conditions including firm hard pack, but really excelled in broken up snow and thanks to the rocker was a blast skiing bumps and trees where all you needed to do was pivot and absorb. Excellent new design thanks to Seth and one that will really change people’s mind about skiing rockered skis at resorts.
