K2 have been strong in the freestyle market for years, due to their understanding of fun. Does the Sight still deliver affordable good times in the park? We tested them in Galtur.

Great value for a straight up jibbers tool
There's a hint of the Sight being a little too 'by the numbers'

K2's Sight twin tip has been around a while and has continued the brand's reputation for making skis that are as fun as they are high performing. And often whilst being distinctly affordable too. The 2019 Sight is no exception on that front, coming in at £355 without bindings.

Otherwise they are almost unremarkable, and perhaps a victim of K2's consistency over the years. The graphics are a huge strong point though, with a trippy evocation of Grateful Dead-esque album art and a cool colour palette.

They're not the poppiest skis out there but they are still very playful in other ways; easy to smear, butter and force around a spin if you come up short. The sidecut is fairly minimal but the Sight is narrow enough to be whippy on piste in short turns, and the straight edges add up to stability for run ins and landings.

However, they're not great in soft snow. At all. In fact they're woefully lacking in any stiffness that would allow you to venture off-piste at all. On the other hand, that's not what they're for, and for the price, you can't expect a quiver of one.

It's another solid, great value, and hugely fun ski from K2. Maybe we've come to expect that much from them, but by their high standards the Sight doesn't really stand out.
