Product Info

Not quite like any other setup out there, the K2 AMP Charger Skis + MX 12.0 Demo Bindings are some of the most ideal carving tools on the market. These skis feature Mod technology, a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary wood core, leaving the overall ski flex unaffected. The Chargers are made for expert level skiers who are after charging textbook turns on rock hard snow at mach-speed. The Marker MX 12.0 Demo Bindings translate power extremely efficiently and are easily adjustable by a certified technician to accommodate a wide range of boots.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Speed Rocker™Designed for high performance precision and agility on firm snow, the slightly elevated tip and increased tip length provide effortless initiation and flawless transitions; while camber along the rest of the running surface delivers precision, power, and edge-hold.

Core

Aspen and Paulownia CoreAspen is solid and dense; Paulownia is an eco-friendly, fast-growing renewable wood that is incredibly strong and very lightweight.

Laminates

Titanal2 sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski dampen the ski and increase responsiveness. Alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal sandwich the wood core to provide dampened, accurate, and unshakable performance.

Sidewalls

Hybritech SidewallsThis unique blend of sidewall and cap construction combines the accuracy, power and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

Additional Features

Mod Monic TechnologyThis focused mass-dampening suspension system is made of a solid zinc mass that focuses at dampening the ski at targeted locations on the Mod structure and absorbing impact loads along the entire ski.

Included Bindings

The Marker MX 12.0 Bindings integrate with the MX Plate through Titanal hubs that are imbedded into the core of the ski for the most direct transmission of power. The system hubs are functionally wider with a 50 mm footprint, which decreases the distance between the binding and the edge of the ski for added performance.

These bindings are on a demo track with a wide range of adjustability to different boot sole lengths. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust your bindings.

Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.

    Comments about K2 A.M.P. Charger Skis + MX 12.0 Demo Bindings 2012:

    I have been holding off getting skis with rocker to them because I just was not sold on the idea( I mean whats wrong with shaped skis right?) but I was amazingly and happily suprised with the Speed Rocker on this ski, I was able to link up turns effortlessly either just crusin or blasting down the mountain at mach 5! These skis where rock solid at any speed and terrian whether it is groomer, mash potatos, the steeps, there was just no place that they did not do great in. But they beg to be riden as hard and as fast as you can handle. Go ahead and push them it will only get better! Size 169cm, 5'4" 180

        Amazing going from 20 year old technology to new. I had given up skiing for snowboarding. These skis made me want to come back to skiing. I loved them!

        Great set of skis. Good for all around conditions, little heavy and hard to lift and turn in glades or mogals, compared to a lighter pair of skis. Great smooth ride in groomed snow, very little vibration.

          All around a great ski, but at high speed there is a bit of chatter due to the ski being quite flexible. They are great for most conditions. Great in powder, moguls & back country. Just not a perfect fit for high speed downhill racing. Great price from EVO & great mounting & service turn around time at the Seattle store. Also, folks at the store are always very friendly.

                  The skis are very good for the price. Too bad there was no possibility to exchange the bindings with something a little better. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.
