K2 Impact (2013)
The returning Impact is the same shape as the Rictor, its stablemate in K2's AMP series of men's all-mountain performance skis, but it's metal free and better suited to lighter weights and lower speeds. K2 designed it to spend a little more than half its time in ungroomed conditions. It's a wood-core (fir/aspen) torsion-box Hybritech construction (sturdy vertical sidewall underfoot for edge grip, lightweight cap fore and aft for supple flex). Carbon fibers are used to stiffen its torsional flex. Available as a system, it comes with a 11-DIN Marker/K2 MX TC binding. Also available flat for $730. K2's All-Terrain Rocker combines 70 percent camber with 30 percent tip/shovel rocker to smooth the ride, enhance forgiveness and improve soft-snow flotation. Mod Technology features an independently acting secondary core, raised above the deck, to focus power transmission where needed and reduce vibrations for better edge grip and high-speed calm. Mod Monic technology features a strategically placed module to further reduce vibrations.
