PRODUCT DETAILS

ROCKER TYPE

Jib Rocker –  Featuring an elevated tip and tail with zero camber underfoot, Jib Rocker offers the best blend of playfulness for butters and surface tricks combined with enhanced pop for unmatched ollie power. Simply put, Jib Rocker is designed for ollies, butters, and predictable pop.

FLEX

Park Flex –  With the help of its athletes K2 developed a unique core profile that gives the tip and tail a flex pattern with more pop that holds deeper in presses and butters. This park specific core has more flex in the tip and tail but keeps the mid-body rock solid for control and confidence.

CORE

Aspen –  Lightweight with a resilient, damp, easy-to-ski nature.

LAMINATES

Triaxial Braid –  A K2-patented machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled core for pronounced torsional strength, while retaining the lively flex patterns inherent in a wood ski.

SIDEWALLS

Cap Construction –  A molding process that envelops the core and internal materials within the top layer of the ski. Cap skis are generally lighter weight and more forgiving.

BASE

Swap Base –  K2 maximizes base material usage by alternating the contrasting die cut pieces - your base may be the reverse of what you see pictured.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Tip & Tail Hardware –  Metal rivets added for increased durability.

BINDING COMPATIBILITY

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
