Alpine Ski K2 Marksman

Ski sold without binding.

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours randomly.

K2 team rethinks its freestyle backcountry range. Now the Marksman replaces the Shreditor 102 and pumped up its sidecut with a 106mm waist. Straight out from Pep Fujas’s spirit, the Marksman ski open new possibilities. If you look a little bit closer, you will notice its left/right asymmetrical tip and tail shape that maintains a long effective inside edge for greater stability and float, while the oversized taper on the outside makes for effortless butters and predictable handling in deep snow. 

What can the K2 Marksman do? 

This new school mid-fat ski can ride big freeride lines in deep and drop cornices and cliffs and land crazy tricks on a kicker you shaped with your friends. It floats in deep thanks to its tip and tail rocker. More short turns than long curbs, the Marksman has an impressive handiness and can absorb hard landings. Its poplar and pine core gives it a great pop and stay light. It takes a little while to get used to the asymmetrical shape of this modern ski. 

Who is the K2 Marksman designed for? 

We advice the ski for confirmed to expert skiers looking for a  freestyle backcountry ski. Once you will master it, the Marksman will become your first choice to push the limits on all terrains.

Type of turns

  • Long turns

Shape

  • Bidirectional (twin tip)  :

    The ski shape allows to ski forward or backward.

Structure - Construction

  • Asymmetrical Tip and tail  :

    The left/ right asymmetrical tip and tail shape maintains a long effective inside edge for greater stability and float, while the oversized taper on the outside makes for effortless butters and predictable handling in deep snow.

  • Double Barrel core  :

    High density wood over the edges for maximum durability, with a lower density center core to keep the ride light and lively.

  • Triaxial braiding  :

    Triaxial braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. Developed in 1988 by K2 engineers, the patented triaxial braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled wood core. This unique method produces skis with great torsional strength, that maintains the lively flex patterns of the wood core.

  • TwinTech  :

    This new Twin Tip specific construction process increases the durability of sidewall skis. A traditional sidewall construction produces a 90 degree angle where the top material and sidewall meet. The Twin Tech construction actually rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • Powder Rocker  :

    This tip has the most elevation and longest measurement of Rocker and offers skiers a “surfy” feel with enhanced soft-snow performance. The camber region still exists to ensure edge-hold on firmer conditions.

    Simply put, Powder Rocker provides unmatched flotation in deep snow.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.
