A brand new addition to the K2 lineup for 2021 is the K2 DISRUPTION ski range. With two strands – a piste collection and an all mountain range, the K2 Disruption intends to really make waves in the ski market. We caught up with Andy Collin from K2, to talk about all the options in the new range and their technical features.
K2 has a long history of going against the grain, with innovative, boundary-pushing skis that experiment with shape and technology, and flat out rip. The DISRUPTION range is no different, with Dark Matter Damping allowing for drastically improved edge contact, meaning a smoother, more planted arc in hard snow.
- Dark Matter Damping: A polymeric damper between two layers of high modulus carbon strategically placed along the ski edge that are designed specifically to eliminate high-frequency vibrations.
- Powerwall: Power transmission to the ski is dramatically enhanced with oversized ABS sidewalls that are laminated and pocketed within the wood core of the ski.
- I-Beam Technology: Optimised stability and power transfer along the entire length of the ski ~25% more Titanal by mass than Y-Beam.
