As one of the narrowest skis in K2's A.M.P. series, or All-Mountain Performance, the Bolt is touted as the company's highest performing hard ski ever made. The 72 mm-waisted Bolt features ROX Technology, designed to give the ski strong edge hold and easy turn initiation thanks to tip rocker, a metal laminate wood core and a carbon web pattern designed to increase torsional rigidity. K2's Speed Rocker profile slightly elevates the tip for easier turn initiation. "This ski can really lay over and hold strong," said Volckhausen. "It's a one-trick pony, excelling at medium radius arcs," noted Mahon.
