Alpine Ski K2 AMP Velocity

The AMP Velocity is the skinniest and the easiest ski of the piste-precision series by K2. Built with a 100% wood core blending fir and poplar, the ski is light and responsive on the slopes. Its generous camber ensures a firm edge bite and solid energy returns which can be handy when exiting a turn. The whole construction is reinforced with triax fibers which stiffens the construction and boosts the ski performance. So far, so good, but what we described here is a weapon. We said it was easy. The last addition that makes the ski more manageable is the Speed Rocker. This progressive rise of the tip enables smoother turn entries and makes the ski more predictable.  

What can the K2 AMP Velocity do? 

It is a ski made to ride fast. If you don't like speed, don't buy it. It may be the low-end ski of the racing line, it remains a high-performance blade that can carve all day full speed. It's easy to play with its turning radius, long turns, short turns, the Velocity adapts to your riding style and delivers snappy edge to edge transitions. Its 72mm underfoot platform enhances the agility and the reactivity of it and gives you tons of precision. But one of the main benefits you get when skiing the AMP Velocity, it's the smooth forgiving feel it delivers. The ski feels effortless and inspires confidence even when the speed gets cranked up. If you want to feel like a racer running the World Cup without having the best technique ever, this ski enables you to do so.

Type of turns

  • Short turns

Shape

  • Directional (front tip)  :

    The ski shape allows only a directional use.

Structure - Construction

  • Carbon Web  :

    The Mod structure is wrapped by carbon fiber. The carbon stringers are oriented with a precise angle in order to increase resistance to torsion on the secondary core. That delivers a lighter ski that will stay solid against torsion where it's needed.

  • Hybritech sidewalls  :

    This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. Offered exclusively on the Side series, Hybritech makes skis strong, accurate and powerful underfoot, while maintaining smooth initiation and easy exits from turns.

  • Fir/Poplar core  :

    K2's Adventure skis use an Aspen/Paulownia blend core. Lower-density Aspen and even lighter-weight Paulownia allow us to reduce the weight that results from the added surface area of wider skis. In addition, the Bio Core is 15% lighter than the fir/aspen blend traditional in our all-mountain skis.

  • RoX Technology  :

    Until the RoX, high performance skis designed for hard snow were very stiff and sturdy, to ensure an optimum edge grip. The stiffness prevented the ski from being forgiving and made it difficult to initiate turns.

    By focusing on Speed Rocker benefits combined to specific MOD geometries and Carbon Web position, K2 created the RoX technology, the new standard for their skis designed for hard snow. It provides an incredible edge hold while turns are much easier to initiate.

  • Mod Technology  :

    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.

  • 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.

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

  • Speed Rocker  :

    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.

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Interface

  • Plaque M3  :

    The Marker K2/M3 is the ultimate ski/plate/binding system designed for recreational skiers alike. The binding utilizes an Compact Toe and a fixed Compact2 Heel design to generate more power, precision and quickness underfoot, loosing 20% of weight compared to the previous model. The Marker K2/M3 system's sleek design is graphically integrated into the look of the A.M.P. Series skis.
