K2 makes narrower skis similar to the race-bred constructions other brands enter in this category (see AMP Bolt), but the Rictor holds its own. It likes to carve on hard snow almost as much as any competitor, but testers found its versatility and fun-loving nature to be a welcome change. It’s No. 1 in Forgiveness, thanks to a wider girth and partial sidewall construction, and it’s more eager for oﬀ -trail duty than other skis of its width. Plenty quick edge to edge, it even enjoys itself in bumps.Larsen: “Friendly, but with a bit of aggression hidden underneath. Well balanced.”
MSRP $780 flat
