K2’s Resort, Freeride and Freestyle Lines Offer All-Mountain Performance

Seattle, Wash. (January 16, 2014) – Holding true to its All-Mountain Philosophy while maximizing the power of Baseline 2.0 Technology, K2 Skis bridges its Resort, Freeride and Freestyle categories to create a group of All-Mountain skis at home across varied conditions and diverse skier types. The AMP Rictor 82 XTi, AMP Rictor 90 XTi and Shreditor 92 are excellent options for those searching for a one-ski quiver.

Offering unmatched All-Mountain versatility in a high performance model, the AMP 82XTi is at the top of K2’s All-Mountain collection. Whether ripping fresh corduroy first thing in the morning or laying an edge into firm and fast afternoon conditions, this ski stays stable throughout the day thanks to its All Terrain RoX construction combined with a metal laminate layup. Those looking to venture off-piste will appreciate the All-Terrain Rocker for its elevated tip that excels in mixed snow conditions.

Bumping up the waist a tad wider to essentially become the bridge between the All-Mountain and the stability-based Freeride collections is the AMP Rictor 90 XTi. Utilizing K2’s Baseline 2.0 design philosophy, the Rictor 90 XTi top shape compliments its All-Terrain Rocker side profile for hook-free turn initiation in any condition as well as ample float in softer, off-piste conditions. Sharing the same All-Terrain RoX Technology as the Rictor 82XTi, the Rictor 90XTi achieves enhanced stability and durability through this multi-layer structure featuring a mod suspension and an X-shaped carbon web. There truly is nowhere on the mountain this ski isn’t comfortable.

The Shreditor 92 is perfect for versatile skiers who shred the park, frontside groomers and backside powder. This maneuverable twin tip draws influence from both the freeride and freestyle categories. Featuring an All-Terrain Baseline Rocker profile that combines camber underfoot with tapered tips and tails, this ski is predictable in all conditions regardless if you’re skiing regular or switch. Built with a triaxial braided wood core blend of fir and aspen, the ski boasts a low swing weight with a playful yet stable feel.
