The K2 Recoil is the true definition of a ski that can be an all mountain twin. With a Bi-Directional Sidecut you have the same flex whether you are skiing switch laughing at your friends that cant keep up with you or slaying some freshies in the bowl. The Recoils ABSorb Twin Tech Sidewalls have a dampening system built in to lessen the vibrations for when you stop a huge landing either off of a cliff or a massive hit in the park and they add some torsional stiffness to the ski when you just feel like laying down some turns. The Fir/Aspen wood core has plenty of spring and pop to it for taking maximum air either on the manmade stuff or natural. Tip and Tail Hardware only add to the durability of the Recoil and will keep your new skis from exploding when you land too heavy on your tails. At 90 mm in the waist you can float in some light powder, crush the crud when the groomers are getting nasty and have an ample landing platform for stomping tricks. The term all mountain twin is used very loosely these days but not for the K2 Recoil, that is the one stick does it all.

Troy here. I just got off of the K2 Recoil. This is definitely an advanced-to-expert pipe and park ski. I'm going to give it a 5 out of 5. Even on the hill, it rips real short turns. It's got a lot of rebound to it. A lot of stability. The edge control is great. It's quick edge-to-edge. It's got a lot of snappy pop to it as well. It's going ot be a great, all-around ski on the mountain as well as in the park.
Kyle here with the 2013 K2 Recoil. I absolutely love this ski so I'm going to give it a 5 out of 5. It's a really good ski for all mountain to park, good for anywhere from intermediate to advanced to expert. If you're trying to be all over the mountain and the groomers, great ski.
This is Steve here. Just got done testing the K2 Recoil. This is personally one of my favorite skis out. Great all-mountain, park aside. In the park, it's excellent on rails, pipe, jumps, basically anything you throw at this ski, it's going to completely perform as well as you want it to and exceed your expectation. Edge control is amazing. This stiffness is perfect on it too. For an all-around ski, I think this is your money bet. I give it a 5 out of 5.
Kyle here with the K2 Recoil. This is a really fun ski here, has all mountain rocker so it can ski all over the mountain. When you get into a little bit of snow and stuff, it still holds up high in the snow so you can maneuver really quickly, it also was really fun and playful when you're going through the park and hitting a little bit of jumps and stuff like that. If you like to charge really hard, this ski can also hold its own on the frontside and on the hard pack. I give this ski a 4 out of 5.
Evan here. Just got off the K2 Recoil. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's going to be your all-mountain twin from K2. It's going to be for that advanced-to-expert park and pipe skier. Still has a really good all- mountain to it on the hard pack and it's a really great ski.
