K2 Bad Apple Skis - Youth 2012: Is your grom skipping school for powder days? Obviously, only because you are skipping work to bring them – besides there is way more to learn on the mountain than in a stuffy classroom. Let them take advantage of freshies as much you do with the K2 Bad Apple Skis. With Powder Rocker™ and one of the widest waists of any junior ski, the little guy will be able to float through snow that is deeper than they are tall. Powder, heavier snow, and crud will be easier than ever to ski, and your protégé will want to shred longer than you can. Plus you won’t have to worry about them vanishing in what you thought was waist deep snow – so there’s that.
Powder Rocker™ is designed primarily for deep snow. This large amount of rocker provides additional lift for enhanced soft snow performance in the tip and a surfy feel. A reduced camber region is still present underfoot for a confident edge hold in firmer conditions.
Directional Taper Sidecut maximizes the performance of the ski in the forward direction. The ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
TwinTech Construction increases the durability of the sidewalls. Unlike a traditional sidewall, this construction rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
Aspen and Paulownia core: Aspen is solid and dense; Paulownia is an eco-friendly, fast-growing renewable wood that is incredibly strong and lightweight.
Triaxial Braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. This makes the ski incredibly energetic and responsive.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
|Tip Width (mm)||128||128|
|Waist Width (mm)||100||100|
|Tail Width (mm)||122||122|
|Turning Radius (m)||12|
