K2 Hell Bent (2012)
Every model in K2' s massive ski collection features one of five variations of the rocker concept: All Terrain (moderate tip rocker plus camber), Speed (very mild tip rocker plus camber), Catch Free (mild tip-and-tail rocker plus camber), Jib (mild tip-and-tail rocker plus a flat midsection), and Powder (rockered forebody plus cambered rear). The Hellbent is part of K2' s Factory Team series, which consists of skis used by K2' s pro team athletes. At 132mm in the waist, the Hellbent is a powder-specific backcountry jib ski designed to stomp huge landings, forward or switch. Powder rocker helps it plane high in deep snow and ups maneuverability. Holes in the tip and tail accommodate pre-cut climbing skins (sold separately). This version is sold flat.
