K2

If you're riding this winter at Mt. Hood, you might catch the K2 team sharing your lift. They're out there 100 plus days a season testing and developing the future in skis, snowboards, bindings, and poles. Technology like fiberglass skis and wide-width snowboards were pioneered under K2's watch; and if it's possible to one-up their technology, the graphics do it. It's a unique look you can identify with, but can't be mistaken for anything other than K2.

"A little rocker made all the difference"

I have been skiing for eight years, but I started late - in my 40's. After the second year I just hit a plateau. I could ski blues but didn't enjoy it. I always felt I was fighting my skis and boot fit, using up a ton of energy in turns. I heard that a bit of rocker in the ski can make turning easier and so I tried these K2 skis - what a huge difference in my skiing. My heel lift was gone since the ski is lighter and turns easier. I am having fun again and I love these skis. I would recommend these to any new beginner, as well as anyone struggling to bond with their current skis and make progress.

"Aggressive, powerful and smooth!"

I am 6' 3" and 205 lbs. I have been skiing east for 30 yrs and consider myself pretty advanced. Bought the K2 AMP Rictor this fall (184 cm). They are very fast, very powerful and work beautifully. Tried the bumps and they are extremely quick and responsive, even with the 184 length. They tear up the late afternoon crud and turn like butter on the morning groomers. Being in the east no luck testing powder, but they have a nice fat tip. Definitely not an intermediate ski, as I was shocked by the aggressive fast performance. Only concern is with the rocker when "bombing" straight on at the bottom of the mountain on green/ blue trails, the skis do not know what to do if they are off edge and can get very wobbly. As for Peter Glenn, I placed the order through Amazon since they offered the best price, skis showed up within days, bindings mounted and couldn't ask for a better purchase experience. I encourage all to read the Q&As on the items prior to purchasing - great info!

"Great all around board"

Using this board as an intermediate snowboarder who likes to hit the black runs, powder, and kickers from time to time. This is a good all-mountain board with some playfulness inherent to its rocker/flat/rocker profile. The rocker under bindings really shines for sharp pivot turns, ground tricks, and powder. The flat between bindings gives you o.k. pop and is a nice compromise between the rocker/camber extremes. This board is excellent in powder and is just great fun up down and around the mountain and park. Besides jibbing, this board feels very versatile. This is a great beginner board and one you can develop with until you find a style-specific board. The top sheet is slick, so consider getting a stomp pad. There's also a 3/4" setback that makes it more of a directional twin. This makes it good for powder, while still letting me ride switch at a moment's notice. At 5'10" @ 185 lbs, the 159cm is a great fit.

"Best boot for me!!"

I am 5'11 and 165, size 10 boots. I ride all mountain. I ride a 157 K2 darkstar wide and a 159 Flow Infinite. I have tried Van's encore and Flow Boa boots. Vans too tight, Flow too wide. These boots hit it perfect for me. Peter Glenn got them to me a Day BEFORE I was supposed to get them. They contacted me on my order, because there was an error on my part. Very nice and very professional. Boots 5 star, Peter Glenn 5 star. For me K2 fits my mid narrow feet PERFECTLY. True to size, and Exceptional Quality. I will order K2 Boa boots for the rest of my Snowboarding life.

"Stand out!"

My wife's poles were picked up by mistake at Snowmass. We figured it was because they looked like all the other poles. These don't which should help in the future. Let's face it, for most people straight is just about the most important parameter, and these are in fact straight.

"Love the easy entry concept for snow kiting."

This is my 2nd k2 cinch binding purchase. I'm confident that i'll like these as much as my first pair. I'll mainly be using them for snow kiting and need a quick entry binding for that purpose. Thanks for making a great product. Joe from alanson michigan.

"Bang for Buck"

Great bindings. They fit tight and come off with ease. While riding, these provide the rider-to-board relationship you want. They are very responsive as long as you have tight boots to match the sensitivity.

"Great All-Around Ski"

The K2 Xplorer is a good all-around ski. It's not as good as a race ski on piste, or as good as a dedicated big Mountain ski off piste but any all mountain ski is going to be a compromise sometimes. That said it really does its job well. It's better to have one ski that copes with every condition than a specialist ski. After extensive testing of a wide variety of All-Mountain skis I decided that the Xplorers performed the best for me. 85% performance on-piste and 85% performance off-piste. As an aggresive all terrain skier (WC Speed Skier & Instructor) I prefer the 184cm length. I found the Xplorer great in the powder. It was agile, lively, and responsive. It does remain quite stable even at speed, even though it's soft in the shovel/tip. I found this a really great ski. For reference I'm 50yrs old, 67Kgs and 1.70m (5ft 7ins).
