After one run on the K2 Luv Struck 80 you will be pretty smitten with this ski. The Luv Struck has an 80mm waist designed for the intermediate to advanced skier to spend most of her time on the trail, but will head off to the fresh snow once in a while. The Luv Struck has K2's Channel Light Core that is women's specific and removes excess weight with grooving channels that run the center for the entire length of the ski. The BioFlex Core remains on the perimeter of the ski with a blend of Aspen, Paulownia and Bamboo that is rigid and soft in the right spots to provide women with a softer flexing ski that will require less mass or energy but put out tremendous stability and rebound. Hybritech Sidewalls have a slight cap construction on the tips and tails that improve the maneuverability with the majority of the ski has vertical sidewalls that improve the torsional strength and edge hold on firm snow. The Tapered Tip provides plenty of control in soft and variable snow by reducing the swingweight and that hooky feeling you may encounter. If you're searching for a new love, get shot by Cupid's Arrow with the K2 Luv Struck 80!

Hi, I'm Linda. I just finished skiing the K2 Luv Struck 80. I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. It's an intermediate, beginner-intermediate ski, all-mountain. It's very stable. It's not super forgiving, it won't help you if you're trying to get to that next level but it turns nice and it's good under speed and if you're just cruising the mountain, it's awesome. 4 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Julie. I just got off the K2 Luv Struck 80. I give this ski a 3.5 out of 5 star rating. I thought it was a nice ski for somebody that likes to ski at a slower to moderate pace making short to medium radius turns. I personally think this ski is a little bit soft in the tip for varied snow conditions which you tend to experience more in that 80 waisted. You might be looking for something a little more versatile. It definitely skied well in the softer snow at the bottom of the mountain here. It was a little chopped up at the top and the way that this ski skis, it floats up on top of that. It doesn't quite power through it as much as the stiffer version with the metal. So, 3.5 out of 5 stars for this one.
Hi, I'm Annie and I just jumped off the K2 Luv Struck 80. It's a wood core, lightweight, intermediate, beginner ski. It was pretty stable. In the short turns a little bit iffy, better in the long turns. It had a nice response throughout and it would be a lot of fun to experience some powder as a beginner-intermediate skier. I'd give it a really strong 3 out of 5.
Hi, my name's Monica and I just got off the Luv Struck 80. I give this ski a 4 out of 5 rating. It's a great lightweight women's ski. It's great on the frontside and great long turns. A little more forgiving on the short turns. Has a nice little snap coming back on it. It skis long but if you're a frontside kind of gal you're going to love this ski all day. Lightweight - you're not going to get tired on it. I give it a 4 out of 5 rating.
