K2 Women's Potion 80 Xti Ski with Marker ERC 11 BindingSTYLE # S140604201
The 80XTi is the perfect all-mountain ski design, cooked up with all the right features. A healthy serving of All-Terrain RoX Technology, an ideal 80mm waist-width and a hearty metal laminate titianal sheet hugging a BioFlex 3 core.
FEATURES:All-Terrain Rocker: All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions. Core: Strength and Structure: A K2 ski is designed with a primary core and structural layers that determine the flex along the entire length of the ski.MOD: Suspension: Added on top of the ski s primary core is a secondary core called the MOD structure, which essentially acts independently as a suspension system, quieting the ride of the ski. The key is that the MOD structure does not change the overall flex of the ski.Carbon Web: Increased Edge Hold - A raised X-shaped pattern has been added to specific regions of the MOD structure to support a Carbon Web. This X-shaped carbon support is furthest from the core to increase torsional rigidity, for greater edge-hold and grip. It works independently of the primary core so the overall longitudinal flex is unchanged.Speed Rocker: Effortless Initiation and Accuracy: The addition of Speed Rocker or All-Terrain Rocker makes turns effortless with greater accuracy and edge hold. Metal Laminate: Built from the base up, a metal laminate construction consists of alternating layers of fiberglass and titanal above and below the core. Metal Laminates provide damp, accurate, unshakable performance, ideal for expert and advanced level skiers. Hybritech Sidewall: Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. 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. BIOFLEX Cores: All of K2 s women s skis use cores that feature a combination of Aspen, Paulownia, and Bamboo. BioFlex cores are comprised of strong Aspen wood underfoot, which is fused with lightweight Paulownia in the tip and tail using a specific interlocking pattern that reduces swing-weight and provides a smooth-flexing ski. For 2013/14, K2 continues to apply this technology through one of the following three variations of BioFlex, each specifically tuned to target different performance goals: Bioflex 3 - 80% Aspen/20% Paulownia - Increased performance, strength, and durability Bioflex 2 - 70% Aspen/30% Paulownia - reduced swing-weight with added performance Bioflex 1 - 60% Aspen/40% Paulownia - Added forgiveness with the lightest swing-weight Marker ERC System: The all-new K2/Marker women s-specific ERC (Energy Response Contact) binding system is our widest ski binding system, with a 54% wider attachment. Thanks to zinc feet that extend toward the edges of the ski, the ERC system delivers greater precision and control on the wider-waisted Super skis. In addition to being wider, the binding stand height has been reduced by 12%, adding almost 10% in weight savings. All Mountain: Optimal resort performance in different conditions and terrain.
