K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis + M2 10.0 Q Bindings 2011: The K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis are a true recreational ski that provides unmatched forgiveness and control. These characteristics are achieved through blending the right amount of sidecut in a 74mm all-mountain waist width and brand new All-Terrain Rocker which makes turn initiation easy. The K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis offer performance that’s also easy on the wallet.
All Terrain Rocker – 70% Camber, 30% Rocker. The All-Terrain Rocker is the most versatile Baseline™ available featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft-snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
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. Triaxial braiding gives the K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis great torsional strength, while maintaining the lively flex patterns of the wood core.
Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.
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.
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.
