Empty Your Bag of Tricks, Not Your Wallet
The 2010-11 K2 Silencer is the ultimate all-terrain twin tip. Based on the K2 Extreme dimensions, this new 85 mm vertical sidewall with All-Terrain Rocker ski can handle ripping the entire mountain in any condition or just lapping the park. The Silencer’s Aspen core creates a feather-light twin tip that is slightly more forgiving feel than the Revival. Wrap the core in the new Twin Tech vertical sidewall construction and you create a bomber ski that will continue to rule the hard pack, pipe and the rest of the mountain.
Baseline: All Terrain Rocker -70% Camber/30% Rocker
Performance: Powder: 30% Park:70%
Sizes: 149, 159, 169, 179
Radius: 20m @ 179/Directional Taper
Construction: Twin Tech with Vertical ABS Sidewall
Binding Options: Any Binding with a brake that is 85mm in width +
Featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Moderately wider tip than tail maximizes the skis performance in the forward direction. This means the ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
Twin Tech Sidewalls
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.
Tip and Tail Plates and Rivets
K2 introduced tip and tail rivets 7 years ago on the Factory Series skis. They were functionally developed for additional protection, reinforcing the tip and tail of the ski against delamination. Although function is still the primary purpose, K2 has evolved the rivets and plates into stylized components.
ABS is a polymeric material used in sidewall construction that primarily functions to protect the core. K2 uses ABS because of its dense characteristics and impact toughness that not only aid in the direct transmission of power but also make it very durable and resistant to moisture.
3.5 MM Edges
Most of our factory series skis come standard with a thicker more durable steel edge to prolong the life of the ski. Normal thickness of edges is around 2.5mm whereas the Factory Series skis’ use a 3.5mm edge to withstand the added abuse. This thicker edge is far more resistant to crackingand grinding for a more durable, longer lasting ski.
Torsion Box Technology
Torsion Box construction is the foundation for the widest range of skis designed by K2. Depending on the dimensions of a ski, and the amount of flex and torsion designed into it, one model of a Torsion Box ski can differ greatly from another. The versatility in the construction enables us to build everything from entry-level through expert skis. While there will be significant differences between a DarkSide and a MissConduct, they do share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy that can be found in all Torsion Box skis.
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.
