K2 Recoil Skis + Squire Schizo Bindings 2012

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.
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Park & Pipe
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: 20m @ 179m, Medium
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
