K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis + M2 10.0 Q Bindings 2011

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.
Shape
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.
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. Triaxial braiding gives the K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis great torsional strength, while maintaining the lively flex patterns of the wood core.
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    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.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: 15m @ 170cm
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
  • Warranty: 1 Year
  • Tip Width (mm): 118
  • Waist Width (mm): 74
  • Tail Width (mm): 103
