We built the Luv Machine 72Ti for women seeking the perfect short to medium radius turn and need a ski to match their advanced skill set. BioKonic core, titanal metal laminate harmoniously create a fine tuned carving machine. Whether railing perfect arcs on equally perfect groomers, or letting them run on long open slopes, the Luv Machine 72Ti meets and exceeds the demands of the K2 Alliance™.
The K2 Alliance has always been at the forefront of developing the most badass women's specific skis and we've done it again with our latest collection incorporating the all-new BIOkonic Technology. The goal for the Alliance was the create a collection of skis designed from the ground up to specifically address the needs of female skiers of every level, type, and size; delivering the appropriate balance of performance attributes while maintaining accessibility for a wide group of skiers.
Our Alliance and R&D crew have taken a Women’s First Design approach to the development of BIOkonic technology. The concept is simple, taking the BIOlogical approach to how women ski. It doesn’t mean just taking a men’s ski and moving the mounting point forward; it’s a holistic approach to the overall design of the ski, matching the shape, flex profile and material distribution to the needs of female skiers. Moreover, BIOkonic technology allows us to optimize these attributes throughout all sizes of each model, ensuring that all women can benefit from BIOkonic. We are taking it back to basics and delivering on what women want; an energetic and consistent feel coupled with performance and precision to ensure the ultimate skiing experience.
The optimization of materials and flex profile, placing heavier, dense materials over the edges of the ski where they have the most impact on performance, while guaranteeing optimized flex on every size from smallest to longest.
Metal Laminate Construction
A metal laminate construction, denoted with “Ti” in the name, uses a sheet of Titanal above and below the core to give the ski a damp, precise and accurate feel.
The overall shape and sidecut of the ski are optimized to fit perfectly with the suggested mid-sole, ensuring a perfectly balanced ski.
Hybrid Sidewall Construction
Blending a sidewall construction underfoot with a full cap construction in the extremities. The sidewall section gives the ski accuracy, power and performance while the capped regions reduce overall ski weight and ease turn initiation and finish
