"Amazing, ADVANCED RIDERS ONLY"
- Name: 2009 K2 Apache Crossfire w/ MX 12.0
- Pros: Fast, Great edge hold , Sturdy, Reliable, Stable, Great float, No flapping
- Cons: Heavy (that could be because I got them in 190s),
I own these skis in the 2006/2007 model, and I have to say these skis are AMAZING. I own these in 190cm, and I got them for a birthday, and I have not been disappointed with them yet.
These skis are definitely for advanced riders, and I suggest you truly know that you want a fast rigid ski before you buy these.
These skis are fast, in fact the manager of the store warned me before I picked them out that these skis are FAST, and I have to agree 100%. These skis get me going at 50mph easily, and I can push them to go faster with ease. These skis I would say are good all- mountain skis, but more in the aspect of everything aside from park, and they are a bit heavy, so the ice isn't really their best friend. These skis have great float, and you will not need to lean back EVER in powder. I was actually really surprised about that. And these Marker bindings are also pretty great, they are extremely reliable.
Caution: I am informing you that these skis are FAST, and if you fall you can easily break a knee, just a warning, but if you're up for the challenge buy these skis.
I would definitely suggest these skis to any advanced backcountry, power, top-of-the-mountain, off- trail, and even groomed run skier.
