K2 HellBent Skis 2012: Welcome to the playground - the devil’s playground. Once you have stepped foot into this realm you will never look at the mountain in the same way again; in fact once you have skied the K2 HellBent Skis, you will never look at mid-fat skis again, period. This freakishly fat beast can stomp landings both ways into the most bottomless of pits, while Powder Rocker™ will pop you back up before Satan can reach up and get his hands on your skis. Even with a 132mm waist, the K2 HellBent Skis can rampage through all types of snow with a sharp turning radius and slight camber underfoot. O yeah, and that graphic will make you squeal like a pig!
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.
Tip/Tail Hardware - removable plugs reveal holes that can be used to attach K2 Pre-Cut Skins
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
3.5mm steel edges are durable and far more resistant to cracking.
Fir and Aspen core: solid and dense woods known for their inherent strength and durability.
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.
**Please note that base colors will alternate and may not arrive exactly as pictured.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
