Philpug: You know we were smitten with the outgoing K2 Charger collection; damn, we will miss those extremely underrated and underappreciated skis. Oh well, what is gone is gone, time to welcome the all-new Disruption skis. The flagship model is the 74mm-waisted MTi. MT stands for "medium turn," with a turn radius in the mid-teens. These square-tip skis have one simple purpose in life: to lay trenches, period. They are purpose-built skis that have little or no sense of humor and a soul as black as their graphics.

The on-snow feel is actually best felt when the momentum builds with speed: the faster you go, the more connected you feel to the snow and the closer your hip gets to the ground. This is a ski that will reward great skiers and punish pretenders. If you haven’t noticed, K2 is back in the business of building skis again.
Insider tip: Bring your A-game.​

Long Term Update: Like many skis last season, we didn't get as much time on them as we would have liked. Having many of these skis available to us in our test fleet allows us to circle back and revisit these skis. The all new Disruption MTi is now going to get more time on snow, not only by me but hopefully some of our other Tahoe testers.

The Disruption MTi replaces the beloved Super Charger, so it has some pretty deep trenches to fill and the MTi is definitely up to the task but to the beat of it's own drum. The new Disruption collection is a significant departure from the norm. Where the outgoing skis were very traditional in tip profile and sidecut, the Disruptions have a shorter blunt tip and a sidecut that runs full length to the ski's large flared tail making the design ski the skis full length...and then some.

One word to describe the new Disruption MTi is "Purposeful", this ski feels like it has one goal in life and that is to make the perfect carved turn.

Put binders on mine this morning and checked forward pressure with my different boots. Tune and finish looks good.
