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