surprising ski
Got back into skiing after 40 yrs at age 60 and went with these. Used to compete fis eastern division and Was used to skiing 195- 207 lngth for slalom and wasn't at all sure I'd be at all happy, but surprise!! quick, snappy on the fall line, carves well on mm groomers, even hardscrabble, a bit unstable at speeds though. Just keep up with tuning and overall a great ski

I'm 6'4" and about 205 lbs. beginner to intermediate. 47 years old. Will these work for me?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Howdy!

Yes, the K2 AMP Sabre Skis with Marker M2 10.0 Bindings will work perfectly for you and your skill set. I recommend the 174cm length. It will be a versatile ski to progress your skills on and most importantly HAVE FUN with.

Enjoy and let it snow!
I am 5'9" weigh 159lbs female. What size skis should I get? I am beginner approaching intermediate level.
Ethel R on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ethel. Since you are beyond the beginner level and your height, I would suggest 160-170cm. Obviously, the shorter skis are "easier" to use, but the 170's give you a smoother ride and offset your height. I've been quite happy with mine; the bindings were quite easy to mount, using the instructions. However, set the release force in the middle range, to avoid injury in a fall. Once you are sure of your skills, you may want to raise the level, if it tends to release prematurely. Have a great time. Jerry
I am 5'10" and I weigh 200lb. And I am beginner/intermediate, what would be the ideal size ski's for me?
David W on Oct 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That's a tough one, especially with today's wider skis and traditional narrower skis being so different. The wider the ski, shorter you'll want to go. Given your height and weight, and fairly beg/intermediate level, I would recommend a traditional narrower ski like the K2 Sabres, and go fairly short. 172's would be the longest I'd go, and I wouldn't be afraid to go 160. Shorter really is easier. If you really are an intermediate and plan on skiing a lot and improving, maybe 172's. They are the more "appropriate" length, but if you're beginning and really want to improve fast, go short!!! Hope that helps. Best wishes.
Are the bindings mounted?
Rich D on Mar 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No they are not mounted. The bindings come with the skis in a separate box and must be mounted using a screwdriver.
Are the skis pre waxed and sharpened?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they had a factory wax, which lasted 6 days of hard skiing. The edges were sharp. I've been very happy with these skis. J Sharp
im 5ft7...140lbs with a size ten boot looking to get a first pair of skis for all mountain performance, how will these fair??
Chad C on Feb 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought these skis for my boyfriend who is 6'1" and about 175, size 10.5 shoe, but he is an intermediate skier, not a beginner. They are not an expert ski- good for beginners and intermediate, I think. They seem to handle very well. I have seen him ski on them a few times this year in powder and on a hard-packed hill and he loves them.
I'm 6'3'' and about 210 and beginner. I enjoy a shorter ski. Will 160 work?
Sam S on Feb 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: By the charts, you could ride a 180+ length due to your height and weight.
The K2 AMP Sabre Skis w/ Marker M2 10.0 Bindings would be a little short and soft (flexy) for you.
Possibly look at the K2 Amp 72 Skis w/ Marker M2 10 Bindings.

Hello I am 5'6" and 127 lbs and I am a pretty good skier and age of 16. I was wondering which of the 2 sizes; 153cm and 160cm; would best suit this decription?
Patricio F on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: At your 127 lbs, K2 AMP Sabre Skis w/ Marker M2 10.0 Bindings in 153 would work well. If you anticipate growing or gaining weight, the 160 would suit you better long term.
I'm a beginner almost intermediate level skier 6' and 263lbs next winter I am become a beginner level ski and snowboard instructor, how well would this set up work for me?
Nick D on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nick,

this is a great ski for you! It's durable, flexible, and light to provide you with a smooth and easy ride. This is exactly what you want when setting a great example for those beginner level skiers you will be instructing!
I am a female, 5'9" and weigh 159lbs, what size skis should I buy?
Ethel R on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For your height, weight, and ability 165cm - 171cm would be a great size range.

I am 5'7" and weight around 160, I am pretty new to skiing but progressed a lot last year and inly plan on getting better. I am used to riding a 149cm ski but dont know wether to purchase the 153cm or 160cm. which do you think would be a better ski?
Anthony B on Nov 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anthony,
Even for learning a 149 is going to be a tic short for you. K2 suggests that going by your weight a 165cm to 170cm length ski would be optimal. That would be a hard transition from a 149. I would say to go with the 160cm length... it will take some getting comfortable with, but you will be better off in the end.
I have skid a handful of times (beginner/intermediate level) and feel that it's time to get my own skis. I don't ski too often so I'm considering buying these - just don't want to get cheap skis and regret them later. Thoughts? Also I am 5'11 and weigh 155, what measurements should I look out for?
Jonathan S on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, the best sizing for you would probably be between 168-170. These are a great starter ski, but unfortunately we do not have your size in stock. I suggest these http://www.the-house.com/8959k2ext10zz-k2-skis.html (in size 169) since they have a lower price point, and are a great first pair of skis, and these bindings, for the same reasons: http://www.the-house.com/ma1m10e90wb13zz-marker-ski-bindings.html
My husband is a beginner skiier and he is 5'9" 220lbs but likes a slighter shorter ski. What size would you recommend?
megan on Mar 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Megan,
There is some personal preference here, but if he likes a shorter ski a 170 would be the shortest I would venture.
I am 20 year old beginner-intermediate skier, i weigh about 130 pounds and have a size 9 shoe. Would these skis be suitable?
Sophie H on Jan 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Sophie,

The 153cm K2 AMP Skis would be perfect because of MOD Tech and the stable torsion box and triax fiberglass. They're a great pick , awesome price, and great skiing ski!
Can you use these in a terrain park as well as groomed runs?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
These K2 AMP Sabre Skis are a great beginner to intermediate level ski that will be an outstanding choice for someone looking to cruise the mountain, and develop some skills on. They are a conventional, parabolic, and non twin-tip ski. Though you can travel through the park with anything.. these will not be a ton of fun in the park or pipe. Take a look here for a Park ski that can travel the mountain: http://www.the-house.com/8951sathrbow14zz-salomon-skis.html
My wife is intermediate 165 lb and 5' 4" and mostly skis on groomed slopes would these be good for her?
A shopper on Jan 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Day,
These skis would be great for an intermediate skier cruising the resort. These are officially a Men's ski, and may not be ideal in this situation.
I am an intermediate to advanced skier with a budget. Are these skis good for me?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The K2 AMP Sabre Skis w/ Marker M2 10.0 Bindings is designed for really easy and comfortable skiing for beginner to intermediates, and casual riders. Well made and lighter weight for a great day on the groomed runs!
I wear a size 14 ski boot, will these bindings extend far enough to accommodate the boot?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Marker M2 10.0 Ski Bindings on the K2 AMP Sabre Skis will accommodate your ski boots. Take all your equipment to your local ski shop to be properly mounted by a certified professional.

Have a great winter.
I am an intermediate skier women 5'4" and 125 lbs. Would this ski package be good for me? What ski length would you recommend? I went skiing and got rossigols (i think) rentals skis and I didn't know the length but on the ski it says the number 142. But looking online at sizing charts, the ski length should be 152-155cm? Could you explain that? Thank you so much. I can't wait to buy my own skis.
lilyberrypop on Dec 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey there Lilyberrypop.

The rental shop gave you 142cm length skis because shorter skis are easier to control.

At 5'4" a ski from 150cm to 155cm will be a great ft for you.

I recommend purchasing a Women's Specific Ski Package. K2 has some great options. Check them out:

My son is an experienced snowboarder looking to try out skiing. He is 5'10 185 lbs. I'm looking for a reasonably priced set of skis for him as he already has snowboard equipment. Will this set work for him ?
Dburns on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Deb.
These K2 AMP Sabre Skis are a really good entry to intermediate level ski that I believe will be loads of fun for him to cruise the mountain and develop some skills on. He would work just fine on the 160 length. As a side note... skiing is soooooo different from boarding that he may want to rent a time or two to decide if it is something he likes.
Been skiing for about 5 years now. I'd say I'm intermediate but often do blues and black diamonds. I am just shy of 6 feet and about 155lbs. I was wondering if these skis are good for me and if so, what size would you recommend. If not, do you have a recommendation for other skis in a similar price range? Thank you.
A shopper on Dec 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey there.

It sounds to me like you are a strong intermediate looking for more fun and performance. The K2 AMP Sabre Ski with Marker M2 10.0 Ski Bindings is a great ski package for the beginner skier looking to improve to intermediate or an intermediate looking for a softer, less demanding ski.

Honestly, I would recommend you purchase a "true" set up and get away from the ski packages. The reason being that ski packages are geared to the beginner/novice skier or a skier who gets on hill minimal times and it sounds to me that this is not you.

I recommend the K2 AMP Rictor Xti Series:
http://www.the-house.com/8956k2am8xti14zz-k2-skis.html
http://www.the-house.com/8963k2rc82x14zz-k2-skis.html
http://www.the-house.com/8963k2rc90x14zz-k2-skis.html

These are skis with varying waist width that you'll love for all mountain carving. The wider platform will help with float in deep snow.

Here are binding options:

Here are K2 AMP Rictor Xti Ski Package options:

http://www.the-house.com/8969k2ar9xm1414zz-k2-ski-packages.html

Again, ski packages coem with adjustable track/demo bindings. More movement in the binding means less direct power transfer and less direct responsiveness.

Please let me know your thoughts. I want to help you get the right set up for the right price. I hope this helps.
I am beginner advancing toward intermediate. I weigh 155 lbs and I am 5-7", would these skis work for me?
Charlie M on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey Charlie!

The K2 AMP Sabre Skis with Marker M2 10.0 Ski Bindings is the perfect set up for you. A great ski and binding package that will help build your skill level while allowing the utmost fun. The 160cm length will be easier to control but the 167cm length will be a fun way to bridge the gap to intermediate and push you to the next level. Have fun out there!
I am 6'2" 175 lbs. 45 years old. Picked up skiing after a 20 year hiatus last year, I am an intermediate at best. Will these skis work for me and what size? If yes what boot would you recommend?
George B on Nov 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey George!

Welcome back! I'd say after a 20 year hiatus the K2 AMP Sabre Skis are a great choice. Really fun sidecut for great turnshapes and a forgiving tip and tail to save your legs.

I think the 174cm length will work well for you.

As far as boots go, what size, last, and flex are you looking for?
I have a size ten boot and I weigh 196 lb and I'm 5,7 feet how would these skis hold up for me?
Jordan B on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jordan.

The K2 AMP Sabre Skis with Marker M2 10.0 ski bindings will work for you if you are looking for a great all around beginner to intermediate level ski. Fun and flexy, lightweight with confident hold, the K2 AMP Sabre Skis are built for the skier looking to have fun and progress their skills. The bindings are adjustable and will fit your boots. I think the 160cm length will work best for you.
