Product Info

The K2 Rictor 82XTi Skis with MXC 12 Bindings are a complete high performance set up that raises the bar on the Rictor legacy. K2 adds a titanal (super strong alloy) metal laminate to their already solid Aspen and Paulownia wood core for unparalleled stability at speed, and the Hybridtech Sidewall construction gives you superior edgehold without sacrificing weight or durability.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain Rocker™Directional design for all ability levels with added versatility and ease in all snow conditions. All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. A flat tail gives you maximum edge contact for precision and edgehold.

Sidecut

Progressive SidecutProgressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works well on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.

Core

Aspen / Paulownia

Laminates

RoX TechnologyRoX technology is a rocker-focused design philosophy that incorporates a lively wood core, Carbon Web for increased torsional rigidity, a MOD structure for dampness and Speed or All-Terrain Rocker for effortless but accurate carving.

Metal LaminateBuilt from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal above and below the wood core. Metal laminates provide damp, accurate, unshakable performance, ideal for all-mountain skis.

MOD TechnologyA secondary core that essentially acts as a suspension system quieting the ride of the ski but does not affect the overall flex of the ski.

Carbon WebCarbon Web enhances the strength-to-weight ratio, gaining downhill performance without adding additional mass. Located in the tail and the forebody of the ski, the Carbon Web increases edge grip where you need it most.

Sidewalls

Hybritech SidewallHybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. This combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

Included Bindings

Bindings Do Not Come Mounted to SkisAlways have a certified binding technician mount and adjust your bindings.

MXC 12 TC BindingsThe K2/Marker MXC 12 TC Binding system is K2's widest ski binding system, with a 54% wider attachment than K2's previous MX system; allowing for greater precision and control on wider-waisted All-Mountain skis. The MXC binding system incorporates zinc feet that extend toward the ski edge for the most accurate power transfer, resulting in improved edge hold. In addition to being wider, the binding stand height has been dropped by 12%, resulting in a 10% weight savings.

Comments about K2 AMP Rictor 82XTi Skis + MXC 12 Bindings 2014:

Now that I have had a chance to ski a variety of snow conditions, I can only rave about this ski. Holds ice remarkably well (early New England conditions)and is very smooth on Packed Powder. Very stable, quick edge to edge, GS turns are a breeze and even in the 184cm length, slalom turns are easily managed. I've skied for over 45 years, and never have I ridden a better ski. I would recommend the K2 XTi series to any skier. It's a true confidence builder.

        Comments about K2 AMP Rictor 82XTi Skis + MXC 12 Bindings 2014:

        I live in Utah so my idea of hard snow is somewhat biased. I purchased these skis for travel to Whister, Jackson, Vail and alike where traveller can generally expect to ski groomers, but on the off chance there may be powder you aren't stuck with an inappropriate ski. Oh sure my Sick Days are better powder skis, but I'm tired of hauling around pow skis on the off chance I might get to use them while traveling. These Rictors fill the bill nicely and compare favorably to K2's old Recons, but even more flexible and forgiving. Big sweet spot that's nice for intermediates on up. Easy initiation and good grip. Great Western ski.

              I demoed these several times before I decided that I loved ( Ok that a bit much )lets say a ski that will perform without stuffing me into a snow-bank.
              The only thing that was a issue was I should of maybe got the 184 for my weight and height 6'1" 195 dry weight. The 177 flotation is good just had a lot of drag, waxing helped, maybe stay off of flat snow areas will help.

              I love this ski. It takes on the whole mountain with swagger and confidence. Just when you think you've pushed it too far, it surprises you with a forgiving bounce back, daring you to test its limits yet again. I've used this ski in the Midwest on frontside groomers, ice, chop, and fresh snow. It is the epitome of an all mountain expert ski.

                I have not skied for many-years so this is my first pair with the "new"design (used to straight and long skis). First day out on man-made snow and the boards performed admirably. Very easy to get to know them and I think there is plenty of room for me to grow into them as I improve. I haven't had them on anything really steep or deep yet but am looking forward to it.

                  I skied in PA, it was 55 degrees and the mountain was a sloppy mess. These skis plowed right through the piles of snow and slush without missing a beat. Ridiculously fast even in wet, slushy conditions. I can't wait to let them loose on some clean packed powder!
