“A fun ski for any level,” Flickinger said of the 82 millimeter-waisted Rictor 82, part of K2’s A.M.P. family (All Mountain Performance). Construction includes revamped RoX technology with an X-shaped carbon layer for torsional rigidity, plus metal laminate layers above and below the wood core for power. Mod Technology’s secondary core flexes and absorbs shock. K2’s Hybritech Sidewalls blend sidewalls underfoot with a lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail. K2 adds tip rocker for maneuverability, though some testers noted that the Rictor 82 Xti bounced a little at high speeds. However, many called it the most versatile of the Frontside carvers. “It’s quick edge-to-edge and a blast to rip around on,” Bristow said. “The ease of entry into the turn makes this ski easy to enjoy,” Zawacki added.
