The K2 iKonic 85Ti creates a smooth and stable feeling on the frontside of the mountain. The Carbon Grid Construction uses a weave stretched out across the fore body and tail of the ski to increase the responsiveness at high speeds and increase the torsional strength. K2's Konic Technology pulls heavier material away from the center of the ski to increase the maneuverability by adding strength to the edges, but creating a very low swingweight. All-Terrain Rocker uses rocker in the tip for flotation and easy turning, while camber underfoot delivers edge grip and rebound. The iKonic 85Ti has an Aspen-Paulownia wood core and a metal laminate to beef up the horsepower for control and stability on the frontside of the mountain.
