K2 A.M.P. Photon Skis with Bindings - Men's - 2012/2013 - $599.95

Ready for big moguls, steep pitches and fast turns, the K2 A.M.P. Photon skis with bindings let you push your skiing to the next level. K2 recommends using the K2 A.M.P. Photon skis with bindings for 70% groomed and 30% ungroomed skiing. Fir-and-aspen wood core produces a natural flex, allowing the ski to achieve full contact with the snow throughout the turn. Triaxial braiding wraps an interlocking fiberglass weave around the wood core providing torsional stiffness, responsive turning and high sensitivity. Cap construction envelops the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski, keeping overall weight light and durability high. Shock-absorbent secondary core works as a high-performance damping system, and a precisely placed zinc insert helps further reduce unwanted vibrations. Secondary core is wrapped in a fiberglass web for an additional lightweight level of torsional rigidity to keep you stable. All-Terrain Rocker initiates turns easily and offers agile performance, and normal camber underfoot offers responsive power and tenacious edge hold on firm snow. Marker K2/M3 10.0 integrated binding features a Compact toepiece and fixed Compact2 heelpiece to generate excellent power, precision and quickness. Integrated M3 binding plate is lower, lighter and wider than former binding plates for better transfer of power from the boot to the ski. Integrated binding systems allows the skis to flex naturally and fully from tip to tail for smooth turn initiation, hold and release. Binding features DIN 3 - 10 release settings. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $599.95
