Until RoX, high performance hard snow skis were designed stiff and robust for unshakable hold on the firmest snow conditions. The additional stiffness results in a ski that is unforgiving and difficult to initiate into a turn. K2 discovered a way to create a ski with unmatched hold and confidence on rock solid conditions while retaining effortless, accurate initiation and a smooth consistent flex. The new RoX Technology...

Skied this as a sample in the late spring and was blown away. This was snappy and lively and held it's edge on firm snow as good as anything I've been on. It's the first ski I've liked from K2 since my CVC's!
As a ski instructor, one looks for a ski that delivers tons of attributes. A ski to demonstrate how to do things, and that one expects to deliver at low speeds. But also a ski to do the same at higher or sometimes indecent speeds. The BOLT does it all.
I also have a 2012 and 2013 Charger, and this ski has been litterally transformed by the ROX system.
Honestly, having been on K2 for the last 30 years, the ROX skis have been a significant evolution in K2 and all skis, potentially as significant as the K2 Four that some of us have ran in gates and blown tons of other skiers and skis. Looking forward to a simialr impact with K2 boots as well
i love the hard charging Bolt because of:
- high speed stability
- easy to change speed and edge transition
- lively and good rebound
- agressive and sporty
i will buy this ski in 179cm, the 186cm i also tested is only for race experts!
like the ski on high speed, great stability, but still easy turning.
These are solid skis!
These are solid skis!
Together with the new Bolt i tested the new Charger and i liked the Charger more. Compared to the actual Charger the new ski gains performance, more stability and better edge grip. The charger is more verstile then the Bolt, this is what i liked...
logical technology that works: Perfect mixture of power and playfullness. This is my ski for the future
High speed stability, perfekt speed control, very lively ski, sportive character
very stabil and sportive ski, you can go really fast with it. what surprised me was that the Bolt is easy to ski without loosing his sporty character.
