K2 skis define themselves with three simple terms – innovation, performance, and good times. And all three of these elements dominate the firm’s latest range.
The manufacturer’s commitment to innovation enables them to push the boundaries with each new set of skis they produce, striving towards ever lighter, ever more exciting equipment. What does this mean for you? It means that you can have the confidence to push your own boundaries too.
Their dedication to performance is what sets the company apart from many of the competitors in the market. Helping their customers ski faster, further, and more safely is something of a passion for K2.
As for their commitment to good times… well, that one speaks for itself.
K2 have been producing great skis for well over five decades, beginning their journey way back in 1962. Named for the second tallest mountain on Planet Earth – the 8,600-metre Himalayan monster on the China-Pakistan border – K2 are all about that altitude. They know what it means to do business on the slopes.
This is demonstrated by the K2 Skis pro team. Alta, Utah natives Pep Fuja and McKenna Peterson are veterans of some of the most jaw-dropping ski demo films of recent years, while Amie Engerbretson of Squaw Valley, California is rapidly catching up with her stablemates. Meanwhile, Joss Christensen – another member of the team who calls Utah home – is a multiple X Games finalist in Slopestyle. He shows off the versatility, dynamism, and downright awesome-ness of K2’s gear.
The Himalayas might be some distance away from us down here in New Zealand, but the K2 Skis range is ideally suited to living the dream, down under. We are lucky enough to have some of the most scenic pistes and mountain landscapes in the world right on our doorstep. By providing equipment to the New Zealand market, K2 are helping to support the next generation of NZ skiers.
The latest range from K2 is proof, if proof is needed, that the firm are not slowing down. Instead, they are staying true to their triple philosophy of innovation, performance, and great times, and coming up with new pieces which provide all of these factors in serious abundance.
