Product Details

Combine that with a rockered tip and you get an incredibly nimble and precise ski. MOD Technology provides the K2 Rictor with solid edge hold, and MOD Monic dampens vibration for a smooth ride.

A:
"It all depends on your skill set. If you are a beginner or your are a very relaxed skier, get the 167. If you are intermediate skilled skier and a little bit more aggressive, then the 174 size will work better."

Q:
"As a past ski instructor, and racer I am looking to buy new skis. I bought a new pair about two years ago, and hadn't kept up on my equipment knowledge and was duped into buying a pair of Nordica's (at best-intermediate skis). At higher speeds they loose an edge set, and get squirrely when trying to stay on a turn? Would you recommend any particular brand or style? I'm thinking something in 180's? I used to have 2 meters prior to the Nordicas. "

A:
"The K2's are kinda soft for my opinion. I would recommend the Nordica Steadfast Skis, the Rossignol Pursuit HP Titainium Ski System with Bindings , or the Volkl RTM 84 Ski System with Bindings. They are stiffer and a more of a perfect match to what you want to accomplish. "

Q:
"I'm not sure which ski best fit my needs? I'm an intermediate skier and mostly ski greens and blues carving turns but not overly aggressive. I demo'd the K2 impact which I liked but I'm also interested in the Rictor as well as the Volki Mantra. I'm 5"8" and 170 and I'm thinking the 167 or 174?"

Question by Scott on 1/13/2013 - 8:57 am
A:
"This ski doesn't seem like it'd be ideal for you. It is very fast and more for an advanced rider. The K2 Impact Ski System seems like it is more your style. The Mantra is also really different from the Impact. It has a much wider waist so it'd be good for deep snow, but not as maneuverable. I'd go with the Impact. The size will depend on where you like to ski most. Groomers would be a 160, All-mountain would be a 170. If like to do a little of both, go for the 167. "

Q:
"Thinking the Rictors might be the ski for me but open to suggestions. Haven't skied in past 4 years and getting back into it. 66 years old, 6'3", 195lb, ski blues and blacks, fairly aggressive intermediate hoping to move toward advanced. Ski with experts and keep up fine. Currently on old K2 ModX 188cm which are OK but need to move up to new gen skis. If Rictors, should I go for 181s or shorter? Thanks!"

Q:
"Hi - I am an advance skier (5'8" and 140 lbs) looking into the K2 Rictor. I want an all mountain ski for groomers, moguls, and backcountry/powder when possible. Would 160 be the best size when looking for a more all around ski? I was told with the height/weight that this would be the best fit but when looking at the other reviews from the site I am not sure. What would I be missing out on by staying with the 160 vs something in the 167 range. Thanks! "

Question by Mike on 9/3/2013 - 1:46 pm
A:
"If you stay on the groomers, then you are fine in the 160 range, however since you prefer all mountain skiing, you really need to be in the 166-168 range. A shorter ski is going to be more work off the groomers. "

Q:
"I am an older(50)advanced intermediate. I like to ski groomed runs fast with big carving GS type turns. I will occasionally venture onto the occasional black diamond or through the trees. Not as aggressive as I used to be, but still sometimes like to go hard. Six foot, 190 -195 pounds. Looking at K2 Rictor or Atomic Nomad Blackeye. Also what length would you recommend. Thanks - great site."

Question by Drew on 11/21/2013 - 3:36 pm
A:
"Based on the measurements provided, you should be between a ski length of 170-190 cm. This ski is definitely for an advanced skier! The Atomic Blackeye Ski System with Bindings isn't as advanced as the K2 Rictor as it is wider than this ski. If you would like more detailed information on skis, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Store Locations so that a ski expert can further assist you! "

Q:
"Hi, I'm 6'0' and 175lbs. I just bought the K2 Rictor skis in 181cm and now I'm re-thinking my purchase. Perhaps the size I bought is too big? I currently have an older pair of Volkl P40s in 184cm. I'm a very aggressive skier, mostly enjoy tearing up the groomers and those weekend ski-racers. Once in a while I'll go off-piste. I'm 31 and have been skiing my whole life. Should I exchange the 181cm for the 174cm? Thanks!"

Question by Peter on 12/15/2013 - 8:39 pm
A:
"The 181's seem way too big for you. With your height,weight, and skill level I'd recommend something around a 169. If you want to go with the 174's you can but I'd definitely recommend exchanging for the smaller size."

Aggressive, powerful and smooth!   Rated: 4/5

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!
