A third generation Pep Fujas design.  The Marksman replaces the super popular K2 Shreditor 102 which replaced the Kung Fujas.  Looking at the skis you'll notice that they are assymetrical, a left and right ski -- unique for sure, until now Elan has been the only other company to do this sucessfully.  

So what does an assymetrical ski do for you?

 It makes ripping steep and technical terrain a lot easier, due to the shorter radius on the outside edge or uphill ski.  What happens to skiers regardless of ability with symmetrical skis on steep terrain (think double black steep) is they wedge (pizza) their skis just before turning, a shorter radius on the outside edge of the uphill ski makes it much more maneuverable. 

The other reason for the assymetrical design on the K2 Marksman is butters, butters baby.  By having the unique tip shape it makes rolling up on to the tips of the skis a lot easier.

When we first heard the Shreditor was going away we were a little worried because it skied super well, we're happy that K2 kept the guts of the Shreditor in the Marksman.  It rips on groomers, jibby enough if you venture into the park, it just floats better -- awesome!

If you want a ski that can grip on hardpack, but feel surfy enough off trail or in the soft stuff, the K2 Marksman will be great.

TLDR: You send it whereever the snow is good, or the squad wants to go. A swiss army knife.

Recommended Binding: The K2 Marksman's do NOT include a binding, awesome skis never do we recommend the Marker Griffon with 110 mm brake.
