I see a number of posts about the 90, but see very few posts that cover the K2 Amp Rictor 82xti. My dad is thinking about getting them and has no interest or desire in demoing. We haven't seen much written about them other than in some magazines, but it seems like the right kind of ski for him. Are there reviews out there that I am missing. Any feedback from anyone on the board? Any feedback on the integrated binding or flat options? Flat would be much less expensive.
For some perspective, he is in his late 60's, 5' 9", 180 pounds; skis no more than ten days a year mostly with little kids (i.e, slow); takes a bump run or two a day; will ski a run or two in the lightly chopped and the not too deep powder; doesn't mind an open bowl with windswept, but won't be there when it is deep or super chopped; will ski the trees when there isn't much snow; has an older technique where he tends to sit back a bit and push, though is moving to being more centered and moving down the hill; and skis mainly at small hills in the east, with a few days here and there out west.
If someone wants to throw out other options for this situation that would be great. We were mainly trying to figure out why there seems to be so little written about the K2, given that it seems like a decent ski for someone in the east.
