K2 A.M.P. Bolt Skis with Bindings - Men's - 2012/2013

This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • K2 recommends using the K2 A.M.P. Bolt skis with bindings for 80% groomed and 20% ungroomed skiing
  • Designed with a new mix of technology, the K2 A.M.P. Bolt skis offer incredible stiffness and edge hold on firm snow and the ability to effortlessly initiate turns
  • Combination of a strong core, shock-absorbent secondary core and X-shaped carbon support creates skis with unshakable hold on hardpack and incredible side-to-side response
  • Metal laminate construction alternates layers of fiberglass and titanium above and below the fir core to provide vibration damping and powerful responsiveness
  • Typically a super-beefy ski like the Bolt would be unforgiving and tough to turn, but K2 has combined the aforementioned features with a very slight rise in the tips
  • Speed Rocker initiates turns easily and offers agile performance, and normal camber underfoot offers responsive power and tenacious edge hold on firm snow
  • Progressive sidecut has different curve shapes along different parts of the ski—more aggressive in the tip, less aggressive in the tail
  • Progressive sidecut results in confident, quick turn initiation on hard snow and easy release in crud and powder
  • Hybridtech sidewalls blend the performance characteristics of sidewalls with the forgiving flex of cap construction in the tip and tail
  • Hybridtech offers responsiveness and power underfoot and maintains smooth initiation and easy exits from turns
  • Marker K2/MX 14.0 integrated binding system transfers power directly to the ski for unmatched precision and control during aggressive descents
  • Lightweight Marker Inter-Pivot heel acts over a wide surface area, transferring power directly to ski's edges for excellent carving performance
  • Embedded hubs in the core of the ski are 50mm apart, decreasing the distance between the binding and ski edge to enhance performance
  • Lightweight toepiece offers excellent contact with boots for today's wide skis, and a short profile enhances flex and backward release
  • Stainless-steel anti-friction device allows essential boot movement even if your soles are slightly worn or dirty
  • Binding features DIN 5 - 14 release settings
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
