K2 Ikonic 80 Ski + MX Bindings 2017
The K2 iKonic 80 makes a great ski for the strong intermediate to advanced skier looking for smooth and easy turns on the frontside of the mountain. Hybritech Sidewall Construction has a slight cap construction in the tip and tail that increase the easiness to ski, and a vertical sidewall underfoot for solid grip on the firm snow. A Fir-Aspen wood core has a lightweight feeling with a snappy feeling for short to medium radius turns.
The iKonic 80 is made with K2's Konic Technology that uses a stronger, heavier construction over the edges of the ski, and a lighter construction in the center of the ski for a lower swingweight and increased maneuverability. Hybritech Sidewalls have a slight cap construction in the tips and tails that increase the forgiveness, but a vertical sidewall underfoot drives a tough edge into firm snow conditions. All-Terrain Rocker has camber underfoot for extra grip and rebound, with rocker in the tip for fast and easy turn initiation.

Revolutionary core design that redistributes weight to the ski's perimeter providing power, strength and stability directly over the edge for performance, while reducing swing-weight from the center and extremities for added ease and control.
The patented Triaxial Braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core, resulting in great torsional strength while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood core ski.
TAPERED TIP AND TAIL
Our Freeride Stability skis are designed with not just a tapered tip, but also a slight amount of taper in the tail. A tapered tip shifts the widest part of the contact further back to reduce tip weight and deflection in soft and variable snow conditions. The tapered tail allows more control as you exit the turn to either accelerate out or scrub speed as the conditions dictate.
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.
