The K2 Men's Iron Maiden Skis slay snow and metal for winter in a collaboration between K2 and the iconic rockers. Inspired by the Troopers single album art, this ski is built on the proven Recoil chassis to triumph over the whole mountain or harsh urban features when not spinning park laps. The unmatched durability of the Iron maiden's ABSorb sidewalls will take all the thrashing you can give, whether on hard-hitting landings in the park or hair-raising bombdrops in the city.
Built as a high performance all-mountain tool the Iron Maiden is solid enough to take a beating on the rowdiest terrain in the park yet powerful enough to charge the entire resort. The addition of All-Terrain Rocker keeps it nimble and the 90mm waist increases its ability to handle everything in your way. Constructed with Triaxial braided fiberglass around a Fir/Aspen wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control, ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy.
ABSorb horizontal sidewall construction sandwiches a urethane layer in between ABS for shock ABSorption, lessening the impact of harsh landings to the rider. Urethane is used under foot to maximize dampening, but ABS is used toward the tip and tail to maximize performance and edge control. The Twin Tech construction process increases the durability of sidewall skis. A traditional sidewall construction produces a 90-degree angle where the top material and sidewall meet. The Twin Tech construction actually rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse. Add on durable 3.5 mm steel edges that are far more resistant to cracking for a more durable, longer lasting ski.
The Iron Maiden comes FLAT with built in inserts for super fast mounting of the K2/Marker Griffon SchizoFrantic binding
system without the need for drilling. Increased surface area of the insert rings provides 67% more pullout strength than that of standard binding screws. A low stand height and weight of the track and cable system makes it ideal for park, backcountry and the entire mountain. K2 tip and tail rivets have evolved to allow the addition of a pre-cut climbing skin onto the ski for all your backcountry access needs.
