Product Info

K2 Recoil Skis + Squire Schizo Bindings 2012: Raised in the shadows of the legendary Public Enemy and Extreme, the K2 Recoil Skis have arrived as the new standard for a high performance all-mountain twin-tip. The Recoil is built solid enough to take a beating in the rowdiest of terrain parks and powerful enough to charge the whole mountain and in all conditions. All-Terrain Rocker makes this ski nimble, powerful, and floaty all at the same time. There you have it, a true living legend.

Product Details

Shape

All-Terrain Rocker™ is designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.

Bi-Directional Taper Sidecut gives a ski with slightly wider tip than tail the ability to perform exceptionally well while skiing in the forward direction, but with a similar switch arc for more consistent switch riding.

Construction

ABSorb Sidewalls sandwich a urethane layer in between ABS underfoot for shock absorption, lessening the impact of harsh landings.

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 - rivets for durability

3.5mm steel edges are durable and far more resistant to cracking.

Bindings

The K2 Recoil Skis with SchizoFrantic Inserts come with Marker Squire Schizo Bindings. The Squire Schizo is an aggressive freeride binding with low stand height and weight for lighter weight or less aggressive skiers that can easily be adjusted to move the mounting position forward or back a full 6cm for different riding conditions and styles. The insert system allows for fast mounting without drilling (should be done by a certified technician) and provides greater resistance to pullout.

Included Bindings

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

Core and Flex Pattern

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.

Comments about K2 Recoil Skis + Squire Schizo Bindings 2012:

The K2 Recoils are quite simply just an amazing pair of all mountain park skis that can shred anything anywhere. From park features, to off trail conditions between the trees, this ski dominates everything in its path. I was amazed how this ski can handle the powder, but was even more amazed how this ski handles the groomed runs. I own a pair of Salomon Enduros, so i can relate to a stable, high-speed, downhill ski and the Recoils just handle speed so well. If you are that 50/50 rider who wants to totally own the park but then shred the groomed trails, then this ski is for you.

        Comments about K2 Recoil Skis + Squire Schizo Bindings 2012:

        I bought these skis for my 11 year old son as a step up from the K2 Silencers he had outgrown. (FYI the bindings do not come mounted on the skis ready to use out of the box you have to go and pay to have them professionally mounted.) He put on the skis struggled with them for about 50 yards then jumped a 10 fooot tabletop and never looked back. I asked him how they felt when he landed he said "solid not goosey" He skied a powder day the next day and he said they "floated nice". I asked him the following day how they did on the groomers and he said they were "really fast". For an 11 year old to get three two word comments in a row translates to at least 4 stars. The fifth star came from me. I like how K2 knocked off the shoulder on the top sheet at the corner of the cap to reduce cap tears, I repaired his silencers so many times from tears at the coner of the cap sustained by normal downhill use and doing helecopters off jumps half the lenght of his old skis cap shoulders were epoxy. To sum up from my perspective as soon to be forgotten ski buddy dad, they perform well for the lighter higher level skier who wants park skis that will perform well in all the conditions we ususally see in California powder, crud, groomers and oh my god he jumped that. Best review comment however is I asked him after skiing on them for a week if he would trade them for any other skis, he said "nope, these skis rock".

          I added the K2 Recoil skis to my collection of K2 Public Enemy skis. I now have four pairs of K2 Public Enemy/Recoil skis and have always enjoyed skiing on them over the past 6-8 years. They are a great ski for anywhere on the mountain, very versatile.

                  I have not had a chance to play with these yet but I am REALLY looking forward to getting a chance. This is my first pair of twin-tips and while I am getting up there in years I cannot wait to learn some switch skiing stuff. The ski graphics are okay for me, the shop mounted the bindings in about 2 seconds, and only charged me 30% of normal since they did not have to drill or align anything. That was a nice bonus! I can't freaking wait for snow!!!
