Do they come ready to ride switch or do you need to adjust the bindings?

Responded on

These don't come with bindings. You don't have to adjust the bindings to ride switch anyways. It is easier to do, however, when the bindings are mounted in the center...aka a Center Mount...you can ask your local ski shop to do this when you get them mounted with bindings.

I have marker piston bindings with a110mm brake. Can I use them on the k2 revival?

Responded on

They'll work. although they're going to stick out about 3/8" extra on either side, so if you're REALLY laying these ski's over on edge you may drag the brakes. Depends on your skiing style. You could also just order narrower brakes, pretty easy swap.

This ski sounds amazing but I'm used to symmetrical skis and was wondering if you can center mount these? Also, do they ride switch good?

Responded on

These can be mounted true center. They can be ridden switch with no problem.

Amazing Ski!

I am 5'9, 130 lbs, and an advanced intermediate skier. I used this ski in Utah late march, with powder every day.
This ski absolutely slays! It is marketed as a park/pipe ski, but ignore that. I used it for groomers, steep trees, powder, and bowls. It turns great on the groomers, has a great turning radius for trees, floats really well in the powder, and is great for bowls. I can't describe how great this ski is!
The lack of camber was no issue at all for skiing all around the mountain. I would recommend this ski to someone who skis east coast, west coast, and everything in between. Absolutely love this ski, and the durability is amazing. 5 stars!

K2 Revivals: All-Mountain Miracle

Me: 5-9; 175#; 30 years experience; advanced but honest enough to admit I'm not a pro; skied and owned everything including top-of-the-line skis; a true all-mountain skier who likes a bit of everything.

Skis: 2011 K2 Revivals in 174cm length

One word: UNBELIEVABLE. The Revivals are marketed by K2 as Park/Powder tools but online reviews and some trusted local experts said to ignore that - they are actually great all-mountain skis.

And that they are. I was simply blown away by their performance. All sorts of moves and tricks I'd wanted to do for years suddenly started working. Groomed, deep, open, trees, park, trails, they do EVERYTHING well. My abilities and fun factor went up 100X in one day. Folks said they were great but I never expected the magnitude of improvement. They're that good.

If you're looking for an all-mountain ski, you've found it. Get the Revivals, you'll never look back.

nice skis

this ski is stable enough to rip any terrain forward and to handle the hardest landings switch. The all-new Jib Rocker and bi-directional taper makes the ski easier to maneuver for effortless presses and butters on a variety of features. over all a great park ski that can be takin out of bounds sometimes.

Im 5'3 but if i get the skis for next year would they be to big in 159

Responded on

please answer me

Responded on

no i assume you are still growing and would go for the 164s

Responded on

yea 164 might work out, but i would recommend the 159s if your 5'3

Responded on

they run a little long, it really depends on how much you think you will grow and what you will be skiing. If you want to mostly park, a shorter ski is easier to spin on, and will be easier to control. If you plan to use it more as an all-mountain ski, and you think you will grow then get the longer length.

hey so im 5`10"-11" about 175lbs whats size should i be lookin at. and any word on the release date and price on the iron maiden edition

Responded on

with your height and weight, it depends on your ability. if you are a strong skier and like to go fast with long turns go 17X, if you jib it up and enjoy a tighter turn radius or are less able, choose the 16X

Responded on

i would say 174 or 179 it depends on your ability as for the iron maiden here is a thread on newschoolers about it: http://newschoolers.com/ns/forums/readthread/thread_id/577513/ it says somewhere in there that it will only be released for sale in some shops... its not for sale at mine :(

Revivals SLAY

Bought these in 174. The run long. 174 measures more like a 178 but they ski short with the rocker. These ski slay. Carve great on hard pack, tear up bumps and softer snow. I bought these because I was sick of my symmetrical park skis not performing on the rest of the mountain. The Revival is a great compromise of a park ski that slays it on the rest of the mountain.

what bindings should i put on these bad boys

Responded on

I'd definitely put on a binding with an independant heel and toe (two piece), this will allow the ski to retain it's flex and pop underfoot. I'm a big fan of the mojo or peak 15/18 by Tyrolia (sold as a Head product). Great bindings with a traditional low profile and bomber construction. I put them through plenty of big air abuse and I haven't had any issues what so ever. Keep in mind the 18 is a bit heavier due to it being mostly all metal. The mojo color combo either last year's or this year's would look disco on the revival.

Responded on

The Mojo is a great binding. I would aslo suggest the FKS 140 or FKS 180 binding depending on your ability and weight. If you want a super burly binding get the 180, otherwise the 140 will more than suffice and weigh less. The key to a binding like this is that it has almost no height to it, so that you can feel the ski under you better, it has a more natural release so that you don't pre-release and fall just because your ski came off for no reason, and it has a really short mount zone to keep the flex of your ski natural.
