2013 K2 Rictor


Pros: Playful carver with preditable performance on the groomers

Cons: Tails will release unless you use good technique

I got these for those days when the last snow was 2 weeks ago.  I ski mainly northern Utah and Wyoming resorts, and had been skiing Salomon Tornado Ti's at 180 length.  These puppies came to me with 8 demo days on them, and are 182 cm length.  They ski about the same length as the Sollys due to a rounded tail.  The first day out the skis were not holding an edge that well unless I was going mach schnell, and I think out of the box the edge tune is 1/1 degrees.  I put the files to them and set them up with my favorite tune, an 0.5 base and 2 degree side.  An icy start to a spring day at Sundance, Utah gave me much better results.  I was able to carve and slice at will without being too hooky, and several forays into crud or sun-crust were handled nicely by the Rictors.  Big GS turns were quite fun until the hill filled up with ski school kids in the afternoon.  They are of medium weight, which is nice when the day is long and the lifts are sans footrests.  Damp without being dead fish like the old Volants, not quite as snappy as the Tornados (but then few are), and trustworthy at speed.
