The K2 Luv Struck 80 has the same spirit of passion and playfulness found in the Luv Sick 80Ti with lightweight, metal-free construction – and we’re smitten. A streamlined Channel Light Core with a blend of sidewall and cap construction delivers a lively, responsive ride wherever your resort exploration takes you. K2’s patented Triaxal Braiding provides this women’s ski with pronounced torsional strength from first chair to final call.
Shape + Flex
CHANNEL LIGHT CORE
Channels are grooved through the length of the ski to remove unwanted materials for a smoother flex, added ease and better control. Staying true to a women's specific approach, the Bioflex core and metal laminate are focused more strongly on the perimeter of the skis to maintain power, strength and stability.
Construction + Core
K2’s women’s skis use cores that feature a combination of Aspen, Paulownia, and Bamboo. BioFlex cores are comprised of strong Aspen wood underfoot, which is fused with lightweight Paulownia in the tip and tail using a specific interlocking pattern that reduces swing-weight and provides a smooth-flexing ski.
The patented Triaxial Braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core, resulting in great torsional strength while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood core ski.
Base + Edges
Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap constructions. The construction combines the accuracy, power, and performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
