The K2 Rictor series just keeps growing, now adding the impressive Amp Rictor 90XTi ski. This big brother of the line is of the age (or, width and weight) where it's ready to take to the backcountry. Bridging the gap between high performance all-mountain skis and hard-charging freeride skis, this fella is ready to have some tele or AT binding slapped to it and to head for the way-out-there hills. A 90mm waist is ideal for managing variable conditions in the backcountry, while providing enough float when you find yourself in a deep stash. All-Terrain Rocker tip gives this ski a 30/70 rocker-to-camber balance in order to ease edge transition, lift the tip above soft and choppy snow, and aid overall ski maneuverability. An energetic combination of aspen, paulownia, and maple wood core materials make this ski nimble, lightning fast edge-to-edge, and consistently snappy from tip to tail. The Rictor 90XTi is built tough without compromising feel and performance. Metal Laminate (alternating layers of fiberglass and full-length sheets of Titanal metal above and below the wood core) is K2's most complex construction, and it creates a high-performance platform that's stiff, damp, and stable at speed. Hybritech Sidewalls blend sidewall and cap construction that gives this ski the power and edging accuracy of sidewall construction and the lightweight feel and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. Adding to this ski's unshakable hold and effortless turn initiation is the AT RoX technology featuring Mod Suspension. This secondary core that lies on top of the ski's primary core absorbs vibrations from choppy terrain, and dampens the ski to increase overall ski control and reduce tip skipping or wandering at speed. Titanal hubs are imbedded into the core of the ski for the most direct transmission of power from the ski binding directly to the core of the ski.
