IC_042017_K2Skis_0550

WIN A PAIR OF PINNACLE 88 SKIS 👆 Full rules here.

Most awarded

Back when our R+D crew and athletes put their heads together and began talking about this year’s product line, we knew were on to something.  Prototypes were built, tested, scrapped, tweaked, and then tested and tweaked some more.  Then, the graphics squad got their hands on the gear and gave it that clean, iconic, and classic K2 look.  When the magazine testers and critics finally got the chance to click in and let them rip all over the hills of Snowbird, Deer Valley, and Big Sky, they confirmed what we knew we had all along.

The numbers are looking good.
The numbers are looking good.

Like proud parents, we couldn’t be more pumped to boast that K2 is one of the most awarded product lines of the 2017/18 season.  54 times to be exact.  Have a look.  No wait, go have a ski.  You need some of that new K2 in your life this season, because these awards aren’t participation trophies.
