Product Info

K2 True Luv Skis + ERP 10.0 Q Bindings - Women's 2011: Blending forgiveness and stability, the K2 True Luv Skis are the ultimate tool for the intermediate skier. The lightweight women’s specific Bioflex wood core is easy to maneuver. The new All-Terrain Rocker raises the tip to provide effortless initiation from turn to turn. Incorporate the K2 ERP 10.0 to inspire confidence and move you to the next level.

Product Details

Shape

All Terrain Rocker – 70% Camber, 30% Rocker. Features an elevated tip for variable and soft-snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.

Construction

Torsion Box construction is a process of wrapping fiberglass around a wood core that produces light, lively skis. Torsion box has become the most widely used construction because if it’s highly versatile process, and has enabled K2 to build numerous models from entry to expert level skis. While flex and torsion vary, Torsion Box skis share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness and energy.

Included Bindings

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

Binding Compatibility

The marker ERP (Energy Response Plate) is designed for advanced and recreational skiers alike. The ERP is also shorter and less stiff than the men’s system allowing the ski flex to be smoother and reducing the weight by over ½ pound. This system utilizes a Two Linkage Toe and a fixed Compact2 Heel design to generate more power, precision and quickness underfoot.

Core and Flex Pattern

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. The optimum location and thickness of mass differs from men to women. The aesthetic look of the Mod shape has also been customized with a softened, more shaped appearance that graphically ties into the design of the skis. Although the location for the targeted mass of Mod Monic dampening is consistent between the men’s and women’s models, the amount of focused mass is reduced in women’s skis. The women’s Mod Monic is designed to accent the overall look without sacrificing function.

I got these skis a couple weeks ago. I took them to my local shop to have the bindings mounted and set, paid only $25 to have it done. I paid an extra $20 to have the factory wax stripped and a nice coat placed.

I live in the Lake Tahoe area and took them out on a beautiful day--we still had powder leftover from a recent snowstorm. I immediately fell in love with these skis! I downgraded a bit to these Tru Luvs from my K2 Burnin Luvs (they were demos I had purchased a few years ago, but had heavy rental bindings on them). These Tru Luvs are so light, I feel like I have great control and am able to easily transition from edge to edge on the groomed trails with amazing grip, and I really love the response I get from these! They are not "as fast" as my Burnin Luv's, but that isn't really a priority for me anymore.

I am 5'1 and 130 lbs, so I went with the 149. My Burnin Luvs were a 146. I didn't notice the difference in the length, and actually think I would have been fine on a 153, but I'm really happy with these.

I skied a little bit in the powder and trees, and I am happy with them so far. I think that this is a great all-mountain ski for any intermediate to advanced skier, and highly recommend any of the mid to high-level K2's women's specific skis (I've demoed several of them, but I couldn't pass up the awesome price that Evo has on the Tru Luv)

I'm not sure what I think of these yet. I reviewed skis for a couple of years before purchase and these are the first I've ever owned. Have always like K2 skis when renting, so thought these were a sure thing. The conditions her in New England the first time I went were poor... slushy and warm. The skis did not perform well in this. They were heavy and hard to maneuver. I haven't had a chance to get out in good conditions yet but hope they are better in powder. Not sure yet if I'll be keeping these.

    I bought these for my 16-year old daughter for Christmas. She said they improved her skiing immediately and loves them. She are fast skis and she can control them well. She is 5'8" and 125 pounds and got the longest length which seems to be good. She also likes the look of them.

      Bought these for my Daughter for Christmas. Skis have changed so much the last few years. Her performance went way up! She was so excited. They turn so much easier and are so much more stable. I had a hard time keeping up with her. She claimed they took so much less effort to ski that she wasnt even tired at the end of the day. Ok thats a problem, how will I get her home!!!

      Time to find some new ones for myself!

        Comments about K2 True Luv Skis + ERP 10.0 Q Bindings - Women's 2011:

        This is such an awesome pair of skis. I've had rented demo and owned skis in the past, and this is the best pair that I have ever skied on. I was a bit apprehensive about buying a pair of skis online, but after reading all of the reviews online, I decided to purchase these skis, and I am incredibly satisfied with my purchase. These skis are incredibly lightweight, responsive, and a very fun pair to ski on. The bindings don't come mounted with the skis, so you'll have to bring it to a shop to get it done. That said, as I was picking up my skis, the owner of the ski shop said to me, "You're going to have fun skiing with those skis" which speaks volumes to its reputation as a ski!

        I'm 5'8 and purchased 163cm, which is the perfect size for me.

        And plus, I got such an awesome deal on EVO, which makes it even more sweet.

            These skis are great. I only got to use them once before the end of the season, but they even handled the April slushie sections well! I'm really excited to use them next season.

            Thanks!

                  First of all, the price for this combination was out of this world. Couldn't find a better deal than this! Now for the good stuff - I've been skiing my entire life, but just got back into it over the last year. Wanted to purchase my own equipment to avoid doing the rental thing over and over again. I would say I'm a little less than advanced. Anyway, the True Luvs are perfect. Not too heavy, and the shape/edge makes carving a breeze. My first trip with these involved both icy and powdery terrain, and these skis were great for both.

                  The only con for me was that the bindings were a little tricky to adjust to the boots I have. They are a little tight at first, but I was able to fit them to my boot eventually. I would recommend these again and again.

                      I purchased these skis during my first winter in Colorado. They were excellent skis to learn on. They have sharp edges, they're lightweight, easy to turn, & playful, and I was able to advance significantly on these. I went from easing my way down blue groomer to last weekend hiking expert terrain down serious steeps in crusty powder in Telluride. I've definitely outgrown these, but they were a blast to get confidence, ability, and experience on. Plus, I've taken them over some gnarly rocks in the last two seasons, and they've helped up exceptionally well. A good few hundred dollars spent, AND they came with decent bindings.

                          Just bought these skis and had an amazing day on the hill. Light weight, great carving. I am so happy!

                            We wanted a new ski for our daughter who was ready to step-it-up this year. We were a bit worried this ski was "too much", but that was wasteful thinking: at 5'3" and 120 lbs, this ski is perfect for her intermediate/advanced ability, and has really demonstrated to her what a higher-end ski can do! The All-Terrain Rocker is perfect.

                                  Great product! I'm a beginner/intermediate and found these to really be a great all-around ski. They seem to have enough technical ability to let me grow on them, but weren't terrible to use in my beginning stages. I'm excited to get more use out of them soon! Overall, a great set of first skis.

                                    My boots (older) work well with the skis. I will have more time on them at Mammoth during the Christmas Holidays. The snow is great this year so I will have a better assessment and will write back. I love the skis, the look the feel and it is making me a better skier. They are my first owned pair! Thank you.
