Visualize it, send it, stomp it. The K2 Empress Skis are women specific park tools that won't hold you or your credit card back. Featuring Jib Rocker with rocker at both ends and a flat profile underfoot, the Empress is a playful and forgiving ski that will help you master those tricks with a minimum of body blows. Go ahead, take the throne, the Empress is for you.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Jib RockerFeaturing 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

Softer flex for easy handling

Core

BioFlex 270% Aspen and 30% Paulownia with bamboo stringers for reduced swing weight and added performance

Laminates

Triaxial BraidTriaxial braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to enhance torsional rigidity and add control. Developed in 1988 by K2 engineers, the patented triaxial braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled wood core. This unique method produces skis with great torsional strength while maintaining the lively flex patterns inherent in wood.

Sidewalls

Cap SidewallsDurable and lightweight “cap” skis are built by a sophisticated molding process that envelopes the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski.

Base

Swap BaseK2 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 and Tail HardwareRivets for added durability

Binding Compatibility

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