ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility
CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound

This slightly elevated tip and increased tip length provides effortless initiation and flawless transitions, while camber along the rest of the running surface delivers precision, power, and edge-hold.
Simply put, Speed Rocker offers high performance precision and edge hold on firm snow.
Speed Profile
K2 uses a variety of wood cores for energy, rebound, and a liveliness only found in wood core skis. Our wood cores consist of a blend of different species of wood based on the desired flex and target performance of the ski.
Built from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and titanal above and below the core. Metal Laminates provide damp, accurate, unshakable performance, ideal for expert and advanced level skiers.
Working in conjunction with the integrated hubs, the K2/Marker MX system provides unmatched precision and control on our Precision Piste A.M.P models. The system uses Marker's Inter-Pivot Heel technology and lightweight Triple-Pivot Comfort MX toe. This toe comes complete with a cross-mounted spring, stainless steel AFD, and backwardd release function.
Core: Strength and Structure
A K2 ski is designed with a primary core and structural layers that determine the flex along the entire length of the ski.

MOD: Suspension
Added on top of the ski’s primary core is a secondary core called the MOD structure, which essentially acts independently as a suspension system, quieting the ride of the ski. The key is that the MOD structure does not change the overall flex of the ski.

Carbon Web: Increased Edge Hold
A raised X-shaped pattern has been added to specific regions of the MOD structure to support a Carbon Web. This X-shaped carbon support is furthest from the core to increase torsional rigidity, for greater edge-hold and grip. It works independently of the primary core so the overall longitudinal flex is unchanged.

Speed Rocker: Effortless Initiation and Accuracy
The addition of Speed Rocker or All-Terrain Rocker makes turns effortless with greater accuracy and edge hold.
Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
Enveloping the Mod structure with a carbon weave where the strands of carbon are laid at precise angles for an additional level of torsional rigidity on the secondary core. This keeps the ski light but gives you the additional torsional strength where you need it most.
High-Performance Suspension System Mod functions by absorbing vibrations and impact loads along the entire ski, providing stronger edge-hold and a higher degree of power and control. Mod is a secondary core that flexes and moves on top of the primary core, allowing the overall ski flex to be unaffected.

    Comments about K2 Skis AMP Charger:

    I am a recent skier and after getting tired of rentals, I bought these. The assistant at the shop recommended them and, being new to the sport, I accepted the offer (the discount was huge).
    I really like the skis. They are super fast: i.e. I start with a friend next to me and just standing up, I usually leave everybody behind. I have been able to hit 48 MPH (GPS measured) on these and, as another review says, on corduroy/groomed trails they go super sonic very quickly and then allow you to carve sharp turns. They are iffy (at best) on powder because they are thin and sink a lot.
    So, if you like speed and ski on hard ice and groomed slopes, these skis will do.

      Comments about K2 Skis AMP Charger:

      The Charger is an incredible ski for high speed precision turns on groomed runs. It can transition from sun affected soft corduroy to frozen at high speeds without any hesitation or chatter and carve a precise line the whole way. Skiing the Charger on fresh corduroy is as much fun as taking out my fatties for 30cm of new; not kidding.
      If you like making high G turns and carving GS sine waves into corduroy then get the Charger.
