Product Info

K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis + MX 12.0 Bindings 2011: The K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis blend All-Terrain Rocker with an ideal amount of waist width to create a platform built for all conditions. This broad range of versatility and high performance comes from a unique combination of metal laminate construction and a progressive sidecut that allows the K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis to perform equally well on both soft and hard conditions.

Product Details

Shape

The K2 Rictor Skis have a progressive sidecut, which is a combination of two different radii or sidecuts that enhance the versatility of wider waisted skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works great on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of a progressive sidecut on wider waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard snow performance

All Terrain Rocker – Features an elevated tip for variable and soft-snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.

Construction

Built with two sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski, metal laminate skis are the highest performing and most complex construction available from K2. Built from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal above and below the wood core. Metal laminates provide damp, accurate, unshakable performance ideal for expert level skiers. Hybritech™ is a unique blend of sidewall and cap construction. The construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

Included Bindings

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

Binding Compatibility

Working in conjunction with the integrated hubs the Marker MX provides unmatched prevision and control on the highest end A.M.P. models. The system uses Marker’s Inter-Pivot Heel technology and new light weight Triple Pivot Comfort MX toe for an even wider footprint than the previous MX. This new toe comes with a cross mounted spring, stainless steel AFD and backward release function.

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.

Comments about K2 A.M.P. Rictor Skis + MX 12.0 Bindings 2011:

The great NW lends itsself to exposing the pretenders when it comes to technology. Heavy, wet, occasionally deep concrete, Mt. Baker was a great testing ground for these skis.

These were a lot of fun during a 1000+ inches of snow season. Really easy to maneuver at slow speed which was perfect for early days skiing with my 7 year old. But so much there when you're ready to open them up - very stable at speed and plenty of kick to lean on in the steeps.

These brought about a lot of fun that I was missing skiing Head Monsters for a long time. Skiing the 181s felt like there was more than enough under foot for anything I wanted to do.

If you have the means, demo as everyone is different. But as far as finding a ski that will do more of everything and most of it really well - I just dont think you can go wrong here.

                Had no doubts about buying K2, as I've had well over 20 pairs. But since I had my hip replaced (sports injury) I am always wary of buying new skis. I need some that are a little more responsive to what I want to do, when I want to do it. These skis do not disappoint. I ski the Midwest mostly, bought these at the end of the year and they handled everything mother nature threw at them. Buy these skis.

                  This ski does it all. Perfect on any terrain except deep powder. I settled on this ski after demoing for 5 years because once I rode it I knew I didn't need to demo any more. It seems like the 2011, 2012, and 2013 are all exactly the same model with different color schemes, so if you find a good price on any of them, take it!! You won't regret it.

                    Great all around ski. If you have to have just one ski in your quiver, this is an excellent choice. Only slight con is that they don't like to be skied flat on the groomers. Keep them on edge and they will rock your world. Shine as crud busters.

                    I am a 59 year old absolute beginner 6ft 220lb. I bought the 181cm ski length and wish I went shorter. I have used them 4 times this season. I have trouble making good turns, stopping, and keeping my speed down. They are well made, heavy, and seem very durable. The bindings are great as are the looks of this ski. I really like them and expect to be proficent by the end of this season.

                      Just got back from a trip to Colorado where I got to try these out. They performed great on both groomed and powder runs when I needed them to. I'm coming off a pair of 10+ year old skis so I might be a little biased but these things rock!

                          I am coming off the K2 Apache which I have been skiing on for 4 years. I didn't think I could ever replace that ski with a comparable model however this ski rides even better than the Apache did. I was worried this wouldn't be enough ski for me since I am a very aggressive skier who likes long cruising groomed trails. This ski is perfect. I cannot rate it in moguls or powder because I live in the east where neither really exists anymore but for the type of skiing I enjoy this ski is perfect. Thanks EVO for making purchasing this ski a pleasant experience. I look forward to doing business with you again.

                                They did everything I asked of them better than any ski I have owned.

                                  With one day on the ski in variable snow (powder / groomers) and on variable terrain (intermediate groomers, powder tree skiing, soft bumps) : The ski wants to go fast and performs well. Turn initiation not automatic or just different. Quick edge to edge, angle to get the edge to bite hard where my old scramblers just require pressure at tip. Would recommend to some, but not others.

                                    Wanted to update my skis. Switch from 2002/2003 K2 Excape 4500's to the 2010/2011 Rictor's. Like the feel of complete control. An extension of my body. Seamless flow with the mountian. However I ride them, aggressive or mellow they feel great.

                                        Can't give them a 5 yet as ski season hasn't started- they are a gift for my son. I think he'll love them, graphics are cool!

                                          Awesome skis, they work everywhere on every type of ski surface. Went out to A-Basin first week of May, started off great powder, over the week it moved to icy and slush. No matter, skis carved through with no problems. Couldn't recommend these more!!
