Product Info

A.M.P. Force Skis + M2 10.0 Bindings 2011: The K2 A.M.P. Force Skis feature Catch Free Rocker Technology, which enables the ski to become more maneuverable in and out of the turn, but solid and powerful in the middle of the turn for added confidence and control. Geared towards newer skiers, the additional ease and forgiveness offered by this design makes learning to ski easier than ever. The K2 A.M.P. Force Skis are built with a lightweight composite core that adds 3D shape while maintaining a forgiving flex profile.

Product Details

Shape

Designed for developing skiers, this elevated tip and tail assures effortless initiation at slow speeds, stability throughout the turn, and ease of release for added confidence and control

Catch Free Rocker – 80% Camber, 20% Rocker. Designed for developing skiers, the elevated tip and tail assures effortless initiation at slow speeds, stability throughout the turn and ease of release for added confidence and control.

Construction

Torsion Box construction is a process of wrapping fiberglass around a wood core that produces light, lively skis. Torsion box has become the most widely used construction because if it’s highly versatile process, and has enabled K2 to build numerous models from entry to expert level skis. While flex and torsion vary, Torsion Box skis share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness and energy.

Included Bindings

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

Binding Compatibility

The marker M2 is the ultimate ski/ plate/ binding system designed for recreational skiers. It utilizes a new Two Linkage Toe and a fixed Compact2 Heel design to generate more power, precision and quickness underfoot. The Marker M2 systems’ sleek design is graphically integrated into the look of the A.M.P. Series skis.

Core and Flex Pattern

Mod Technology functions by absorbing vibrations and impact loads along the entire ski providing stronger edge-hold and a higher degree of power and control. Mod is a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary core allowing the overall ski flex to be unaffected. Mod Monic is a solid zinc mass that works in conjunction with the Mod structure to focus mass dampening at a targeted location.

Excellent Beginner Ski

Demo'd this ski. Incredibly easy to turn and carve. Very lightweight. Picked up some chatter at higher speeds. Would recommend this to a beginner to emerging intermediate.

First time I used these ski's they experienced severe paint chipping on the tops...despite no collisions or banging together, just ordinary riding. Refuse to believe it is a result of ski's touching while riding parellel down the mountain.

They do ride great and are perfect for recreational skiing. Not really sure why mine experienced the amount of chipping they have though.

      Comments about K2 A.M.P. Force Skis + M2 10.0 Bindings 2011:

      I am an intermediate skier, 6'5" tall, 195 lbs, and I absolutely love these skis! I demo'd a few pairs of higher end skis (HEAD, Blizzard) and wasn't as comfortable with the way they gripped and felt on the snow. One run with these, however, and I was sold. They advertise a "catch free" edge and for someone who was constantly catching edges with the high end demos, I find this to be a true statement. These skis float over the snow until you want them to grab, then bite in when asked to. All in all, very happy with the look, fit, and performance of these skis. Highly recommended for any intermediate skier! They're not bad looking either :D

          I just got back from a ski trip today and I tried out my new K2 Force Skis and Nordica Hot Rod boots and I have to say that the boots were comfortable everyday, all day and the skis performed way above my expectations. The skis have a catch free rocker that really helps for cushion on the powder and the carving just what I was looking for from a ski. I skis are light weight and very durable. I would definitely recommend this ski and boots for all-mountain skiing. Thanks Evo!!!

            Used the skis at Taos. NM. I'm over 70 years old and consider myself an advanced intermediate skier who doesn't do bumps. It snowed while we were there and the skis worked beautifully in the new powder (about 4 - 9 inches). They also carved well in the crud the day after the snow. I usually have trouble in the crud but these skis were easy to control.

              I really enjoy these skis. I've used them only at Parks in CA like Bear, Mt. High and Mammoth but they have preformed well at all locations. With fresh snow, little snow, or mostly ice didn't matter. A huge step up from my skis that were 15 years old and quick heavy.

                Got to ski new powder, groomed packed, ice and moguls all in the same weekend! These ski's proved to be a trip saver-the only reason i stopped skiing was because i'm old-over 50!! The ski's took all that the variable weekend weather threw at me with not so much as a chatter, slip or trip!!!! I'm glad I've lived long enough to ski a product that can handle the crazy East Coast conditions!!!

                                  These skis were just what I was looking for. Smooth and a good transition for between beginner and Intermediate skiers.

                                        Bought these for my husband after trying out my new pair of K2 Tru Luv Women's skis. Both of us are Beginner-Intermediate skiers and don't have the greatest technique (yet), but these skis don't seem to mind. They keep us on our feet and having a fabulous day despite our crudy midwest snow conditions.

                                        Moved out east and my normal powder skis were just not cutting it on the east coast resorts (Whiteface, Jay, anything around Burlington). Lots of groomed stuff and all the resorts end up with a ton of ice to ski on by the afternoon. Great edges and the height of the ski works perfect on the ice and groomed stuff. The Line skis I have are just not cut out for the terrain. I wanted a ski that I didn't have to worry about getting gashed by my five year old or the weekend gapers in the lift line. These have performed a lot better than I expected and when they've lived their life I'll most likely buy another pair. Great inexpensive product to ski every run on the mountain.

                                          For a beginning-intermediate skier, these are great. Bindings are plush and the skis practically drive themselves.

                                            First time I used these ski's they experienced severe paint chipping on the tops...despite no collisions or banging together, just ordinary riding. Refuse to believe it is a result of ski's touching while riding parellel down the mountain.

                                            They do ride great and are perfect for recreational skiing. Not really sure why mine experienced the amount of chipping they have though.

                                            Makes a big difference in maneuvering ski on slope,
                                            compare my old 175 cm Rossinole.
                                            It is too early but my weight tend to tilt backward
                                            with sense of unsteady in times.
                                            I will continue to adjust.
                                            Thank you.

                                            Skiing at Crystal and Whitepass...mostly groomed and Pow in the tree's these ski's performed really good. Kinda choppy at high speeds, but overall pretty good!

                                              Picked these up to try this season, seem to be holding up well. They work great and are extremely easy to initiate turns. Great ski for the price.

                                                This was a great value for an above average ski.
