Product Info

K2 A.M.P. Force Skis + Marker M3 10.0 Bindings 2012: The K2 A.M.P. Force Skis hold some serious powers. With a forgiving flex and Catch-Free Rocker™ this ski will guide you to become a more confident skier. It has unbridled maneuverability, holding a true mid-carve which allows the beginner to intermediate skier the ability to link their first perfectly carved turns. At a modest price, there is no reason not to get out there and give it a go.

Product Details

Shape

Catch-Free Rocker™ is designed to aid developing skiers with confidence, control, and added ease. The elevated tip and tail assures effortless initiation at slow speeds, stability throughout the turn, and a predictable release from the turn.

Construction

Mod Technology is a high-performance suspension system that absorbs vibrations and impact loads along the entire ski, providing stronger edge hold, power, and control. Mod is a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary core, leaving the overall ski flex unaffected.

Mod Monic is a focused mass-dampener made of a solid zinc mass that focuses mass dampening at a targeted location on the Mod structure.

PU Cap Construction is durable, lightweight, and softer, built by a sophisticated molding process that envelopes the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski.

Dimensions

17m @ 174cm 118/74/103 (all sizes)

Bindings

The K2 A.M.P. Force Skis come with the Marker M3 10.0 Bindings. This intermediate binding integrates with the M3 Plate that is lower, lighter, and wider for a more effective transfer of power from the boot to the ski for better control and confidence.

Included Bindings

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

Core and Flex Pattern

Composite core is soft and forgiving

Torsion Box construction gives the ski ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy.

Glass Web is a weave of glass that envelopes the Mod structure for additional torsional rigidity that is more forgiving and versatile than carbon.

I used these skis a few times in March. These skis are great, in powder they ride well, nice smooth turning and good control. In ice, they do well too as the camber of the skis allows you to carve into the ice (believe me, Tahoe didn't get much snow this year and I still enjoyed skiing with these skis!). Great skis if you are looking to learn, light weight so that you have good control, yet wide enough to stay balance. I went from green to blue runs quick and these skis helped me grow with that process!

Got this ski about halfway through last season. It's definitely not a big mountain or powder ski. They also sometimes don't go as fast as you may want them to on the groomers. However, when I took them into the trees, I was pleasantly surprised to find them extremely maneuverable. I was also impressed by their performance in the moguls. They gripped the hardpack exceptionally well. These skis are definitely suited towards less experienced skiers, but can definitely handle themselves decently for the more experienced rider. Great value.

    Excellent skis that allowed me (an intermediate level) to ski faster and easier than ever before. I can't believe the difference in my skiing experience; was able to handle ice, crud and powder without a problem.

        I've had them in big powder at Big White and in great snow (but not much of it) at Breckenridge and they have made me a way better skier than I've ever been. I'm 61 and an intermediate, but they make things so much easier that I skied diamonds at both places with no problems.

                      These skis were on sale, they were a good deal, especially with the good bindings that come with it. They are easy to turn on and really helps a beginner like me develop confidence to get into blue runs. Recommended for a good set of skis to start out on.

                                    I haven't had a chance to use them yet but I am so ready for snow so I can try them out! They shipped so fast and seem to be very lightweight and good quality!

                                    I searched around various websites to find the best deal. EVO is amazing. Super fast shipping and great prices. I will use them again and again!
