Product Info

The K2 SuperGlide 80 Skis with ERC 11 TC Bindings are versatile skis designed to give women superb performance in both hard and soft conditions. The widest women's ski in K2's All-Mountain/Resort group, the Superglide 80 will give you the extra platform you need to make fresh snow skiing a breeze. A waist wide enough to handle soft snow without sacrificing its nimbleness on the groomers. All-Terrain Rocker™ helps you float on top of soft snow as well as helps you initiate turns and absorbs vibrations caused by chopped up snow.

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

BioFlex 2 CoreA combination of 70% dense Aspen laminated with 30% lightweight Paulownia at the tip and tail reduces swing weight, while Bamboo stringers throughout add strength and durability.

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.

Triaxial BraidTriaxial braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to enhance torsional rigidity and add control. Developed in 1988 by K2 engineers, the patented triaxial braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled wood core. This unique method produces skis with great torsional strength while maintaining the lively flex patterns inherent in wood.

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.

ERC 11 TCThe lightweight Marker K2/ERC (Energy Response Contact) binding system is K2's widest ski binding system, with a 54% wider attachment, allowing for greater precision and control on wider-waisted Super skis. The ERC binding system has zinc feet that extend toward the edge of the ski for the most accurate power transfer, resulting in improved edge hold. In addition to being wider, the binding stand height has been reduced by 12%, adding almost 10% in weight savings.

          I didn't get to use my skis until the last day of the season at Snow Star in Andalusia, IL. I mention this because if you live in the Midwest you know how lousy the snow is in March. It was pretty much slush on Saturday... Regardless, these skis are fast and lightweight. I can't wait to use them in the coming ski season on powder!!!

            These are my first new pair of skis in 15 plus years. I put them through all terrain/conditions on my first day out and was very impressed with the performance. I skied on groomed, powder, crud and ice with no problems. They are very quick and responsive in turns. Nothing not to love here!

              The K2 Super Glide skis are wonderful for carving smooth, balanced turns. Though a little heavy, they stay well on their edges and conquer everything from ice to powder.

                I bought these skis to use for my second time skiing ever. They're intermediate skis but as a beginner, I didn't find them too challenging. We skied the East in pretty icy conditions but these babies worked pretty well. The edge was sharp enough that I felt like I maintained control over the ice patches. These skis also look really nice. The colors were exactly what I wanted and matched the picture online really well. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase and would recommend them to other women looking for skis that they can grow into.
