All of K2’s women’s skis use a combination of fir and spruce in a unique core known as BioFlex; a process where a dense fir core underfoot is fused with lightweight spruce at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight. With the Alliance’s involvement, K2 developed a technology specific for women: lightweight, easy to maneuver, yet sturdy and high performance
Mod Technology – Mod 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
Requires a binding brake width between 85mm and 95mm
