Intermediate

These skis are for avid learners in search of comfort, fun and improved technique. They are soft, light and forgiving (70–80 mm waists), and help you reach the next level. Best for groomed, with the occasional foray into powder.

Gear of the Week: K2 Rictor

Gear of the Week: K2 Rictor
K2 Rictor
Rocker technology has trickled down from the fattest powder skis, and will help you navigate everything from hard snow to choppy crud. Check out the K2 Rictor for a versatile ski with "speed terrain" rocker.
Where the AfterShock features K2’s “all-terrain” rocker, its little brother the Rictor gets “speed rocker.” Just the forward 10 percent is rockered—the rest is traditionally cambered. K2 pairs that profile with a huge tip and aggressive sidecut for an 80-mm ski that carves with enthusiasm but never talks back. It gets excellent marks in forgiveness—truly an everyday frontside ski an a worthy successor to the late, great Apache Recon.
