K2 Kung Fujas Skis + Marker Griffon Schizo Bindings 2011: If you were aching for a ski that could efficiently tackle turf of every sort, you aren’t alone. Pep Fujas demanded a ski that he could charge every type of terrain on, so K2 worked with him to develop a new wider K2 Kung Fujas Skis, one that is substantial enough to float and take on the backcountry, yet nimble and poppy enough to shred the resort and the park. He added even more All-Terrain Rocker to enhance its performance in the soft snow, and retained the banging Bi-Directional taper for optimal switch carving. The result is a ski that is truly a quiver of one.
The Bi-Directional Taper tip is still wider but closer in width to the tail. This lets the ski perform exceptionally well while skiing in the forward direction but the taper enables the skier to have similar switch arc for better and more consistent switch riding. Unlike other categories in the K2 line, the twin tips are designed to perform both forward and switch
All Terrain Rocker – 70% Camber, 30% Rocker. Features an elevated tip for variable and soft-snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions
The new Twin Tip Specific construction of Twin Tech increases the durability of sidewall skis. A traditional sidewall construction produces a 90 degree angle where the top material and sidewall meet. The Twin Tech construction actually rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse. K2 uses ABS sidewalls because of the dense characteristics and impact toughness that not only aid in the direct transmission of power but also make it very durable and resistant to moisture.

Triaxial braiding in the core consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. The patented 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 of the wood core.
