Comes with a FREE Beanie and FREE USA Shipping!!!!
Iconic rock band Iron Maiden and K2 Skis will shred metal and snow together this winter with the late release of the K2 Iron Maiden Limited Edition Ski. Only a limited amount of these unique skis will be made available through select ski retailers during the 2011 winter season. If the graphic is not enough to get you screaming down the hill, the ski is built for maximum performance on the new Revival chassis, a 90 mm underfoot platform for all-mountain and park slayers.Performance: All-mountain: 50% Park: 50%
Sizes: 159, 169, 179
Radius: 20m @ 179
Construction: Twin Tech top with vertical ABSorb Sidewalls
Core: Fir, Aspen
Binding Options: flat
FEATURES:ABSorb Sidewall Technology, Custom Iron Maiden Rivets
Jib RockerThis elevated tip and tail, zero camber underfoot, offers the best blend of playfulness for butters and surface tricks combined with increased pop for unmatched ollie power.
Bi-Directional TaperThe tip is still wider but closer in width to the tail. This lets the ski perform exceptionally well while skiing in the forward direction but the taper enables the skier to have similar switch arc for better and more consistent switch riding.
Twin Tech SidewallsThis 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.
ABSorb-ABS/Urethane Hybrid SidewallsThis horizontal sidewall construction sandwiches a urethane layer in between ABS for shock ABSorption, lessening the impact of harsh landings and blows to the rider. The urethane is only used under foot to maximize the dampening but ABS is used toward the tip and tail to maximize performance and control.
Tip and Tail Plates and RivetsK2 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.
CamberA ski designed with traditional camber makes contact with the snow at the traditional contact points (TCP) regardless if the ski is unweighted, weighted or engaged in a turn.
3.5 MM EdgesMost 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.
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.
