    Product Details

    Style: S10009

    The all-mountain K2 Rictor Ski System performs aggressively in both soft and hard snow conditions. This versatile ski has an All-Terrain Rocker with elevated tips for better turn initiation in soft snow and camber underfoot for a long effective edge that grips the groomers. The progressive sidecut and Metal Laminate sidewalls help this mid-fat ski stay on edge in a wide variety of conditions, and MOD Monic provides targeted zinc dampening for a silky smooth ride no matter where you take them. This season, the MX 12 bindings have a Triple Pivot Comfort MX toe and Integrated Hub Technology to create a wider footprint that is ideal for use with mid-fat skis. The new toe features a cross-mounted spring, stainless steel Anti-Friction Device, and a backwards release function for your safety. The Inter-Pivot Heel has improved holding power to avoid pre-releasing in the air or on the snow.

    A:
    "For your weight and height the recommended ski size is close to 178, however if you want to spend a lot of time in moguls the shorter the ski the better still a 167 might be to small. IF you meet in the middle something close to 170 should be fine."

    Question by mark on 1/15/2011 - 6:43 am
    A:
    "I definitely think this ski is good in the Northeast. This ski is damp which will help you on the ice and crust, and it has the dimensions you need to ski on that type of snow. The waist is 80 underfoot, so it's narrow enough to be a good East-Coast ski, but not so narrow that you'll be sunk (literally) on the occasions that you get a bunch of snow. You are either the 167 or 174 depending on your ability and where you like to ski. I'd size down if you're more intermediate or spend a bunch of time skiing moguls. "

    Question by tonye on 3/17/2011 - 5:07 pm
    A:
    "For your height and weight the recommended size is 168 for an all terrain experience. This might change depending on the type of camber, if its is traditional you are ok but if it is a reverse (early rise) camber you will need to size up to compensate for the tip and tail. But also if you want o go to the moguls you should size down because it helps the rider maneuver the skis better."

    1 Answers | Answer Question
    Question by Ed on 5/4/2011 - 3:39 pm
    A:
    "You should stay close to the 166 if you are selecting a ski that has reverse camber. This ski in particular has only 30% of rocker which helps you turn better and float over powder. The camber underfoot will help you keep an edge over hard pack."

    Q:
    "Hello ! Just purchased a set of Rictors at 174 length. Have not skied on them yet. However I am now worrying and over analyzing my purchase right now. Im wondering if I made the right length choice. I am 6'1" and weigh around 193 LBS. I am an intermediate skier. I have gotten back into skiing after being away from the sport for over 15 years. Don't plan on doing any crazy stuff for a while but I do not plan on holding my progression back if it takes me there. I plan on sticking to the Groomed resort style slopes for now and expand in the future. I have been checking the various online ski sizing charts and most of them have me fitting in a 180-181 ish size. Will I be ok with the 174 Rictors OR should I have gone with the 181's ?? Many thanks for any and all input you can provide. I have been worrying myself like crazy !"

    1 Answers | Answer Question
    Question by Andy on 3/6/2012 - 8:37 pm
    A:
    "With your weight, height and ability you should actually get something closer to a 157-158cm. The rule of thumb is if you are an advance-intermediate the ski should rise to the bridge of your nose, for experts and powder skiers the ski should rise to their foreheads. It looks like you like the groomers so you will not need to get a long ski, 160 and above would be too long for you and hard to turn."

    A:
    "That is a pretty short ski for you. If you are at a beginner stage or more of a chill skier, than the 167's, would be a good size for you. With a longer ski, it will take a little more effort to make the turns, but you will have greater control with the longer skis. Also, your ride will be less bumpy on a longer ski. I would recommend skis in the 174 size. A good brand and size is the K2 Amp Rictor Ski System with Bindings. "
