The Charger returns to the AMP men's all-mountain performance line, updated with the added torsional rigidity of K2's new ROX technology. Like the flagship Bolt, it's designed primarily for high-speed performance on hard, flat snow, but has a wider tail for positive turn finishes. It's a wood-core (aspen/paulownia) metal-laminate Hybritech construction (sturdy vertical sidewall underfoot for edge grip, lightweight cap fore and aft for supple flex). Available only as a system, it comes with a 12-DIN Marker/K2 MX binding. Speed ROX technology combines the forgiveness of tip rocker (K2 calls it Speed Rocker) with performance-enhancing Mod Technology (an independently acting secondary core, raised above the deck, works in conjunction with a strategically placed dampening module to lessen vibrations and improve edge grip) and extra carbon-fiber reinforcement placed so as to stiffen torsional rigidity. K2's Speed Rocker combines 90 percent camber with 10 percent tip rocker to smooth the ride, enhance forgiveness and improve soft-snow flotation.
