THE OFFICIAL K2 Public enemy mounting thread
There are tons of threads about this but none of them help so a new k2 pe thread it is,
im looking at +2 on my 179's
is this +2 from core center? or true center?
post up what you ski em as and how you like it for what you do.

That is +2 from an arbitrary reccomended "0" point, JONG.
+3 is money for doing a bit of everything. +2 is the most rearward I could sugggest.
You didn't need a new thread.SLOWER TRAFFIC

Here ya go, as far as polls are concerned...
I mounted mine +2.5 from the 0 (as indicated on the sidewall)...Totally rocks on everything and the only ski that is funner, as an overall everyday ski, is my PMGear BRO 188 stiff...I can't believe I never got into this ski until now. At SAC prices, it's the best ski deal out by a long shot.
I'm 205lbs, level 7+ and got the 179.

from where? core center? so +5 is 5cm toward the front of the ski correct?

I'm on the line and looking at going -1.

When people talk about the mounting points they're doing it in reference to the scale on the sidewall, I b'lieve.In the long run, we're all dead.- John Maynard Keynes

+12 for all mountain
+14 for jib
seriously there are a TON of threads on this exact topic, why theres even a thread where someone actually posted a chart from K2 with the suggested mounting points
to save you the time of actually READING here's the chart
100% Park- Core Center to +9.5
75% Park- +5 to Core Center
50% Park- +3 to +5
30% Park- +2 to +4
10% Park- Mid Sole to +3
All Mtn- Mid Sole to +4
Powder- Mid Sole to +2For sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found, elseways everyone would know where it was

I run mine at midsole and they kill it every on the mountain.

Mounted at 0, PEs are the BEST skinny powder ski I have EVER seen. They literally ski as well as any 95-105mm waisted ski I have been on and they absolutely crush the crud as well as anything short of a reverse camber and pretty much have no speed limit. I love my PEs. I am confused as to why they don't sell better these days... probably don't have a snazzy new name... they've been the PE for over 5 years despite design changes in 05/06.
I will say that at 0 they lose a little bit of maneuverability in the bumps.

I agree with Summit and Bushwhacker- mount them at 0 if you want an all-around ski. That's where I have mine and I LOVE these skis.
