ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility.
CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound.
This slightly elevated tip and increased tip length provides effortless initiation and flawless transitions, while camber along the rest of the running surface delivers precision, power, and edge-hold.
Simply put, Speed Rocker offers high performance precision and edge hold on firm snow.
Women`s Specific M.O.D.
High-Performance Suspension System Mod functions by absorbing vibrations and impact loads along the entire ski, providing stronger edge-hold and a higher degree of power and control. Mod is a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary core, allowing the overall ski flex to be unaffected.
The optimum location and thickness of mass differs from men to women. The aesthetic look of the Mod shape has also been customized with a softened, more shaped appearance that graphically ties into the design of the skis.
Women`s Specific M.O.D. Monic
A Focused Mass-DampenerThe Monic is a solid zinc mass that works in conjunction with the Mod structure to focus mass-dampening at a targeted location.
Although the location for this targeted mass dampening is consistent between K2`s men`s and women`s models, the amount of focused mass is reduced in their women`s version. The women`s Mod Monic is designed to accent performance speific to the female form.
Built with two sheets of lightweight Titanal running the length of the ski, metal-laminate skis are the highest performing and most complex construction available from K2. Built from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and Titanal above and below the wood core. Metal-laminates provide dampened, accurate, unshakable performance ideal for expert-level skiers.
This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
Bioflex 3 Core
All K2 women`s skis use a combination of fir and spruce in a unique core known as BioFlex, a process where a dense fir core underfoot is fused with lightweight spruce at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight. For 2012, K2 has developed three variations of the Bioflex core specifically tuned to a target performance:Bioflex 1 Ð 60% fir and 40% Spruce Ð Swing weight reduction with added forgivenessBioflex 2 Ð 70% fir and 30% Spruce Ð Reduced swing weight with added performanceBioflex 3 Ð 80% fir and 20% Spruce Giving you increased performance, strength, and durability.
Marker ERS Sytem
The lightweight Marker K2/ERS (Energy Responsive System) is used exclusively on Super Model skis. The integrated hubs are closer together from one toe to heel to accommodate a smaller boot sole and maintain smooth flexing of the ski. The women`s-specific binding features a Triple-Pivot Comfort Toe and Twin Cam 2 Hell. The Marker K2/ERS system is a full pound lighter than the previous binding system.
Forward Shifted Sidecut
All of K2`s womenÕs skis are built with the sidecut shifted two centimeters forward relative to the standard sidecut for a men`s ski. This accommodates the anatomical fact that the center of mass for a woman is generally much lower than that of a man. Shifting the sidecut forward places the center of mass (of the average woman) in an optimum position over the ski for more control and easier turn initiation.
