Item #: 0840116
Sporting an 82 mm waist and progressive sidecut, the 2010-11 K2 Lotta Luv ski offers expert-level all-mountain women skiers the ultimate in performance and unmatched versatility. The Metal-Laminate construction in the T:Nine Lotta Luv and Mod Monic dampen the ride in the most varied terrain. The All-Terrain Rocker provides added tip lift for soft snow and quicker turn initiation on groomers for control and confidence in any condition.
The addition of the all new women’s specific ERS binding option allows this ski to get a whole lot wider, expanding to 82mm under foot while still keeping the performance characteristics of a narrower waisted ski. This translates into a ski with high end performance and unsurpassed versatility on hard pack, crud, or soft snow.
Featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Women's Specific MOD Monic
Although the location for this targeted mass dampening is consistent between our men’s and women’s models, the amount of focused mass is different between the two lines of skis. Through extensive testing with the members of our Alliance team, we have selected the optimal MOD Monic mass for each model to dampen vibrations and provide a smoother ride. The women’s MOD Monic is designed to accent the overall look without sacrificing function
Women's Specific MOD Structure
The optimum location and thickness of mass differs from men to women. The aesthetic look of the women's Mod shape has also been customized with a softened, more shaped appearance that graphically ties into the design of the skis.
Progressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhances the versatility of wider waisted skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works great on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance. All of our women’s skis are built with the sidecut shifted two centimeters forward relative to the standard sidecut for a men’s ski. This accommodates the anatomical fact that the center of mass for a woman is generally much lower than that of a man. Shifting the sidecut forward places the center of mass of the average woman in an optimum position over the ski for more control and easier turn initiation.
Forward Mounting Position
All T:Nine skis are built with the midsole of the ski 2 cm forward relative to the standard midsole point for a men’s ski. This accommodates the anatomical fact that the center of mass for a woman is generally much lower than that of a man. By moving the midsole forward, it places the center of mass of the average woman in the optimum position over the ski, allowing for more control and easier turn initiation.
