I purchased these in January 2014 and have used them approx.15 times in all conditions. These skis are fast! They handle groomers, powder, and ice with no problems. At the end of the season, when conditions in the Poconos were wet and slushy, these skis plowed right through it all and flew down the mountain. My only issue with these skis was that mine had some major differences in the graphics on the 2 skis. I returned them to K2 and they replaced them with the 2015 model no questions asked. It�s nice to see a company stand behind their product and take care of their customers. I highly recommend these skis for upper intermediate to advanced level skiers
Purchased pair Nov. 2014 after I demo 2013 and 2012 models. After skiing on them this season, in all kinds of North East conditions I can honestly say; nothing at all to bitch about! These skis do in all: groomers, powder, pumps, crud and ice. I seriously can't find one fault with them other then length I selection 170cm - I should have purchased 177 cm but still very happy!
Perfect ski for New England conditions. Lightning fast turning for tight tree skiing and bumps. Incredible carver on hard pack. No complaints about float when I skied them in 20 inches of powder at Steam Boat. I'm sure there are plenty of dual rocker boards with 100mm+ waists that rip deep snow better but none that grip icy slopes like the Rictors do.
I demo'd earlier model K2 Rictor ski past two years along with several others make and models and found K2 firs my style of skiing perfectly. Therefore, purchased this years model, knowing there wasn't much change from previous year. I couldn't be happier. Went skiing last week; as expected, ski turns quickly, very responsive, a lot of energy side-side and simply stated; a lot of fun. I can't wait to get on them again because I really enjoy smiling top to bottom when I ski!
Basically, I was driven to purchase because of price! Lowest price I've seen in past two months of searching on-line and retailers. Thanks for keeping a pair around for me. Please dust off and get them to me thanks.
Best Answer:From what I understand K2 sells them both ways. I bought mine "flat" and mounted my own binding. The ski's I think you're viewing cost $467.95 and don't think bindings are included because bindings alone usually run $299 and up. I bought "Knee Bindings" which are made by sold by a company in Vermont and paid $399 for the pair.
They are supposed to. Make sure to tell seller to include them. I did not ask so therefore I had to get a pair from somewhere else that didn't match. It was a pain. But they do have their matching set of bindings.
I like the k2 amp rictor for that type of skiing. Anyone would be happy with them. But I love my volkl rtm 81's even better! If you like to push limits on power turns get the volkl, the high sidewall's really put power on the edges.
I'm 6foot1 330 pounds beginner /low intermediate with a size 13 foot what ski would you recommend for groomerS?

Best Answer:Hey, Scott's answer is great! Most companies will (for balance) place you between a 175 and 185 length ski. Scott's recommendation is a good choice for ski. I will throw in the 177 length of these: http://www.the-house.com/8963hdrv78p115zz-head-ski-packages.html as I love them. These will be a great option for a medium assertive slier looking to explore the resort.
Hello sir, to answer your question, if you are an intermediate/ groomer skier, you will be very happy with the k2 amp rictor 82xti skis. But I also own volkl rtm 81 and I like them better for cruising and making bigger power turns. They make you a better skier if you push them. I like the k2 more for skiing trees. But the volkl is my go to ski.
