Help - what skis did I just buy - K2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Bought these at a swap today. They are new. Thought I could get home and google them, but I cannot find anything exactly like them. Now I wondering what I purchased.

 

They are very similar in look and dimensions to the 2010 K2 AMP Photon. But, these are blue (only Photons I see are green) and do not say Photon on them. In fact, the only name on them is AMP. Pictures below. All AMP series skis that I see have a model name. These do not.

I think they'll work for me, but just curious and want to make sure I didn't get something funky.

 

Thanks!

It's the K2 Amp Photon with a different colored graphic and no model name - either for a rental fleet or a big box store like Sports Authority.

So have you tried them out yet?  What kind of conditions , ice, crud?  How do they hold at speed?  I just demoed a pair today and wondered if they were just too easy to hold up!

Yes, I have been up about 9 times. Skiing some ice, not a lot of crud. So far they are working out well for me. But, as I am getting back into the sport after many years, I don't really have anything to compare them to. I ski mostly blue (did my first black the other day:)), and I mostly stay on groomers.

 

At some point in the future I would like to try a women's specific ski to see how that works. So far, these skis are working out fine.

I am in the Pacific Northwest, so our conditions may be different than what you've got.
