K2 SuperIfic Skis with Bindings - Women's - 2012/2013 - $599.95

Lightweight allies for graceful turns, the women's K2 SuperIfic skis with bindings enhance enjoyment all over the mountain. K2 recommends the SuperIfic skis with bindings for 60% groomed skiing / 40% ungroomed skiing. Bioflex1 core combines aspen, paulownia and bamboo woods to create a ski that is both stable and forgiving. Triaxial braiding wraps an interlocking fiberglass weave around the wood core to provide torsional stiffness, responsive turning and sensitivity. Cap construction envelops the core with the top layer of the ski, keeping weight low and durability high. Women-specific, shock-absorbent secondary core works as a high-performance damping system, and a precisely placed zinc insert reduces unwanted vibrations. Elevated tip eases turns in soft snow, and normal camber underfoot provides potent power, energy and edge hold on firm snow. Forward-shifted sidecut accommodates women's lower center of mass, easing turn initiation. Marker ER3 10.0 integrated bindings are shorter, lighter and more flexible than the men's equivalent, generating serious power and precision. Lighter than all pre-2011 women's K2 skis by 10 - 15%, the K2 SuperIfic skis feature thinner steel edges, reduced tails and lighter weight bindings. Bindings feature DIN 3 - 10 release settings. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $599.95
