K2 50th Anniversary Recoil Skis 2013

The K2 50th Anniversary Recoil Skis feature the iconic red, white and blue graphic that blew up K2 onto a global stage in the early 70s. These skis are designed to be a tribute to the original K2 Comp skis, but with updated tech to keep you from living in the past. Originally made famous by the pioneers of freestyle riding, the K2 50th Anniversary Recoil Skis will have the next generation of riders destroying the entire mountain from groomers to park and urban features. The future is looking bright.
Rocker Type
All-Terrain Rocker™ - Designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions
 
Shape
Bi-Directional Taper - The tip is still wider but closer in width to the tail. This allows the ski to perform exceptionally well while skiing in forward direction but the taper enables the skier to have similar switch arc for better and more consistent switch riding.
Core
Fir / Aspen core
Laminates
Triaxial Braiding - Consists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control, which makes the ski incredibly energetic and responsive
 
Sidewalls
Twin Tech Sidewalls - This new twin tip specific construction process increases the durability of sidewall skis. A traditional sidewall construction produces a 90-degree angle where the top material and sidewall meet. The Twin Tech construction actually rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.
 
Edges
3.5 mm Edges - The 3.5 mm steel edges are thick and durable, for a longer lasting ski that is far more resistant to cracking.
Additional Features
Rivets - Protect from delaminating
Radius - 20 m at 179 cm / Bi-Directional Taper
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Park & Pipe
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
