    • Shockwave Men’s All Mountain Skis:

      The new 2010-11 A.M.P. Shockwave offers a blend of performance, forgiveness, and stability in an advanced to expert level ski. This All Mountain balance is achieved by combining a versatile 78mm waist width, moderate sidecut, and game-changing All-Terrain Rocker that helps initiate turns easily on hard and variable snow conditions. The K2 Shockwave ski is the next evolution of the Apache Raider and will handle well in all conditions, especially excelling on groomers.

    • Marker K2/MX System:

      Working in conjunction with the integrated hubs, the Marker K2/MX provides unmatched precision and control on our highest-end A.M.P. models. The system uses Marker’s Inter-Pivot Heel technology and new light-weight Triple-Pivot Comfort MX toe for an even wider footprint than the previous MX. This new toe comes with a cross mounted spring, stainless steel AFD and backward release function.

    • Men’s Specific Mod Structure:

      The shape of the secondary elastomeric core has been sculpted to distribute mass in ways that ensure the smoothest ride. Overall the MOD is thickest toward the center of the ski to insulate the skier from vibrations and tapers toward the tip and tail to minimize swing weight making the skis easier to maneuver. The optimum location and thickness of mass differs from men to women reflected in the different MOD shapes for our A.M.P. and T:Nine series of skis. The men’s MOD structure distributes the mass of the secondary core increasing torsional rigidity through its X shape MOD design and perimeter mass for increased edge hold.

    • Men’s Specific Mod Monic:

      Although the precise location of the MOD Monic’s strategic mass dampening is consistent between our men and women’s models, the amount of focused mass is different. Through extensive testing with members of our ATD, we have determined the optimal MOD Monic mass on our Apache series that helps dampen vibrations for a smoother ride. The redesigned men’s MOD Monic also has a new X shape that further compliments the X shaped MOD structure.

    • Torsion Box Technology:

      Torsion Box construction is the foundation for the widest range of skis designed by K2. Depending on the dimensions of a ski, and the amount of flex and torsion designed into it, one model of a Torsion Box ski can differ greatly from another. The versatility in the construction enables us to build everything from entry-level through expert skis. While there will be significant differences between a DarkSide and a MissConduct, they do share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy that can be found in all Torsion Box skis.

    • Triaxial Braiding:

      Triaxial braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. Developed in 1988 by K2 engineers, the patented triaxial braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled wood core. This unique method produces skis with great torsional strength, that maintains the lively flex patterns of the wood core.

    • All-Terrain Rocker:

      Featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
