The Photon, designed to be lightweight and easy to manage, even at slower speeds, is also the least expensive model in K2's AMP series of all-mountain performance skis. It's a glass-reinforced wood-core (fir/aspen) cap construction, ideal for quickness, ease and forgiveness. Available as a system, it comes with a 10-DIN Marker/K2 M3 binding. Also available flat for $590. 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.
