Glance to the revolutionary ski, the 5500, realized in the 80s and acquiring a real success due its exceptional versatility for the time, the 50TH IMPACT 5500 is a model specially developed for the 50th anniversary of K2.
Similar to the impact of the AMP range (All Mountain Performance), it has the same characteristics and technologies (All Terrain Rocker, Progressive Side cut, Carbon Web...).
High performance on groomed trails, its generous waist of 80 mm and All-Terrain Rocker mean that you can hit the off piste trails and tracked out surfaces with the same skill and precision.
Powerful and stable in the face of anything you might encounter, these skis are a must for amateur carving skiers who are not afraid of going off piste.
Ideal for the practice of recreational skiing, the Marker M3 11.0 bindings have a new Compact Toe piece and a Compact2 heel providing more power, accuracy and speed under the foot while getting 20% in weight compared to previous versions.
- Off-road rocker: this Rocker has been developed to be used in all snow conditions. The raised tip improves performance on variable and soft snow and facilitates the release curve, while the camber underfoot provides power, energy and edge grip on hard snow needed.
- Progressive sidecut: Wider front of ski / thinner tail. A progressive radius is a combination of two different radii whose purpose is to increase the versatility of the wider skis under the foot. In general, the skis have rather a single radius. This works very well on skis rather thin, but can make driving wider skis underfoot more difficult, especially in transformed snow. The use of progressive radius on wider skis improves the triggering of the turns and the performance on hard snow.
- Carbon web: The structure MOD is wrapped with a carbon fibre, carbon strands are arranged at specific angles for added torsional rigidity of the secondary core. This allows retaining a light ski while providing the torsional stiffness to the places where it is needed.
- MOD technology: The high performance suspension system Mod absorbs vibrations and impacts on the entire length of the ski for bringing a more straightforward edge and advantage of power and control. The Mod is a secondary core which flexes and moves on the primary node to avoid damage on the general flex of the ski
- MOD Monic: Localized reduction of vibration. The Monic is a weight in zinc which complements the action of the MOD structure to reduce the vibration to a precise location
- Construction : Triaxial Braided, Fir/Aspen Core
- Program: Track 60% / Off Piste 40%
- Compact toe piece
- Compact2 fixed tail
- DIN value: 3 – 11
- Adjustment without tools for all sizes of shoes
