What's New? K2's new modular suspension system lies on top of their high performance skis to provide additional insulation from shock vibrations.

Cool Factor: The flagship MOD X Pro contains two layers of metal to enhance the responsiveness of the ski while working with the MOD system to smooth out the ride.

Extra, Extra: Combing the MOD system with K2's Piezo Electric technology gives the MOD X Pro an overall smooth yet action-packed feel.

Word in the Shop: "MOD dampens the ride without sacrificing the performance of the ski," said Jeff Mechura, K2 product marketing manager. "It's the greatest marriage between the high performance and forgiveness attributes a ski can have."
