Adam's Review Rating:

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the K2 AMP 80 X. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for your intermediate to advanced skier. It's very snappy, it excels at short turns, at long turns it gets a little bit rattley at faster speeds. But if you're looking for a good well rounded ski, if you're an intermediate and you just want to keep a good ski that's on the trail and you want to lay down some turns and have a little bit of versatility to it, 4 out of 5.

Hey this is Jeff. I Just got off the K2 80 X AMP. I give this ski 4 out of 5. I've always been a big fan of K2, very consistent construction. This ski was a lot of fun. It's a great frontside carver. Really easy to initiate the turns but it held an edge really well. The only thing I'll say is for a really big guy when you get going fast you might want to consider the 80 XTI with a metal top sheet, same ski with titanium. But I really like this ski, 4 out of 5.

Hi this is Hans. I just got off the K2 80 X. A ski with a lot of pop, it's good for the intermediate advanced skier. Really good on short, medium radius turns. It's a little bit sloppy on long turns, it wants to wash out a little bit. But definitely a ski that is designed for somebody that wants to progress. Give it a 3 out of 5.

Hi I'm Kevin. I just got off the K2 AMP 80 X. I give this ski 3 out of 5 stars. I expected a little more at this price point just to help give the developing intermediate to advanced skier more confidence. It initiates the turn very very easily. It's got good edge grip through the middle of the turn, but as you try to vary your speed, either accelerate or decelerate coming through a turn, the ski get very nervous. Very hesitant, it's unsure of really what it wants to do. So that kinda took a little bit of confidence away from me. But if you're a little more easy going guy, you're not going to push the speed limit at all, it might be a good ski for ya because it will be just calm and stead for ya.

My name is Ryan. I just got off the K2 AMP 80 X. I give this ski a 3 out of 5 stars. If you're on blue squares and your starting to push the speed limits it's okay. But as soon as you get to a little bit steeper runs, it's not that stable underfoot and as you try to slow yourself down it doesn't really give you a very comforting feeling when you start to slow down.

Hi I'm Steve. I just got off the AMP 80 X. I give this 3 out of 5 stars. I didn't really like this ski, I thought it was kinda chattery. It skied fine at moderate speeds but I would recommend going up to the 80 with the TI, the 80 XTI or even down to the 76 with the TI. I think the TI is really helpful in this series to give it stability and good edge hold. Without it I thought the ski was just a little bit too soft and mushy and wasn't really performance oriented enough.

Hi I'm Thom. I Just got off the K2 AMP 80 X. I'm gonna give this guy a 3 out of 5 stars. It's a very easy going ski, it doesn't take a whole lot of effort but it does lack a little bit of stability through the middle of the turn. So for your guy who's just that intermediate cruiser, is never gonna get going very fast, sticking to blue and green groomed slopes this would be a good choice.

Troy here. Just got off the K2 AMP 80 X. This is a ski without metal. I'm gonna give this one a 2.5 out of 5. It wasn't my favorite. It can be a very smooth ski if you're making a really really long arching turn when you have it on edge. It does slide very well though really easily, easy to control at slower speeds. You know if you're a beginner skier and you want something with a little more width to it, this might be a good one. But if you're looking to go faster you might want to bump up to the TI version.
