Product Info

K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis + Marker MX 12.0 Bindings 2012: Bringing the scale level higher than you’ve ever seen for a versatile high performance ski, the K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis are ready to shatter all landscapes. The Rictor easily makes itself at home on the steepest, rock-solid groomer or the back bowls on a powder day. With the perfect combination of All-Terrain Rocker™, width, and shape; this expert level one-ski quiver with have a range of skiers charging first chair to last.

Product Details

Shape

All-Terrain Rocker™ is designed for all ability levels with added versatility and ease in all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance with camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.

Progressive Sidecut is a combination of two different radii that enhances the versatility of wider-waist skis. This guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.

Construction

Mod Technology is a high-performance suspension system that absorbs vibrations and impact loads along the entire ski, providing stronger edge hold, power, and control. Mod is a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary core, leaving the overall ski flex unaffected.

Mod Monic is a focused mass-dampener made of a solid zinc mass that focuses mass dampening at a targeted location on the Mod structure.

Hybritech Sidewalls are a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions that combine the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

Bindings

The K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis come with the Marker MX 12.0 Bindings. This high end binding integrates with the MX Plate through Titanal hubs that are imbedded into the core of the ski for the most direct transmission of power. The system hubs are functionally wider with a 50mm footprint, which decreases the distance between the binding and the edge of the ski for added performance.

Included Bindings

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

Core and Flex Pattern

Aspen and Paulownia core: Aspen is solid and dense; Paulownia is an eco-friendly, fast-growing renewable wood that is incredibly strong and lightweight.

Metal Laminate consists of 2 sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski. Alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal sandwich the wood core to provide dampened, accurate, and unshakable performance.

Demo'd all of the hot ticket, all mountain skis last year with my best bud and ski buddy of 50 some seasons. We both agreed after trying everything, and coming back to the Richtors three times, and in varying conditions, that this was without a doubt the best ski we had ever skied. He was coming off the Apache Recons, that he loved, and said this ski was the Recon on steroids. I liked them so much I turned my son and wife on to them and they both went for them as well. An absolutely phenomenol all around ski. The dampening gives it a smooth ride, similar to the metal skis from back in the day, and the partial sidewall helps it hold a line on ice and crud, at half the weight, yet it floats in powder and is a smokin' hot carver, either big S's or tighter turns on the groomers. For those who can't afford a quiver of boards for every condition....This is it!!!!! Can't say enough about em'. I am extremely happy.

I live in Utah and have been skiing on slalom racers for over 20 yrs. I've been on the skinny K2 Mach Slalom for the past 9 yrs. The fat K2 Rictor is my first all mountain ski. I just purchased them at the end of the season, so only had one day on the slopes for testing. They make fast slalom turns on the groomed, but not quite as fast as my racers. They hold very well. On fresh powder they float better than the racers, but turn about the same. They push right through the crud, but are clumsy in moguls. All my past skis required a learning curve, and these will too, so one day isn't a fair assessment.

    Comments about K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis + Marker MX 12.0 Bindings 2012:

    I just bought these skiis at end of the season, first pair i have owned in 15 yrs, even though i am skiing for 40 yrs now. I was nervous but took them on my late spring annual trip to Alta/Snowbird & they were great. They handles 8" of fresh powder, crud, groomers at top speed. The only tough point was some ice on top, but they are an all mountain ski, not a strict front side ski. Overall i am really happy & i can see why they are truly an all mountain ski.

      Great ski and binding combination. Skis perform well on wide carving turns, a well as short radius turns. Skis are responsive and easy to"pop"in the bumps!

              I wanted a carving ski for the groomed runs and this ski does that very well. It holds an edge and is very smooth. It doesn't have a lot of "pop" out of the turn like some other carving skis. The trade off for that, however, is much greater versatility. This ski handles crud and powder (skied up to 8 inches of new snow) very well. I have found that the carving skis that do have a lot of "pop" coming out of the turn are not as versatile and did not handle the crud and powder anywhere near as well as the Rictor. I am very please with this ski. I got a very good groomer ski, but with more versatility than I expected.

                                  Haven't had them out yet, but I know they're durable and scratch resistant cuz my 6yr old daughter knocked them off the rack. I know they're heavy cuz I picked them up and put them back. Heavy is good.

                                    Comments about K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis + Marker MX 12.0 Bindings 2012:

                                    I live in Utah and have been skiing on slalom racers for over 20 yrs. I've been on the skinny K2 Mach Slalom for the past 9 yrs. The fat K2 Rictor is my first all mountain ski. I just purchased them at the end of the season, so only had one day on the slopes for testing. They make fast slalom turns on the groomed, but not quite as fast as my racers. They hold very well. On fresh powder they float better than the racers, but turn about the same. They push right through the crud, but are clumsy in moguls. All my past skis required a learning curve, and these will too, so one day isn't a fair assessment.
