K2 Press Skis 2013

The new and improved Press is fully re-engineered for 2013 and remains the best valued twin tip ski around. Built with a strong wood core, a super low swing weight and K2’s Jib Rocker™, you will experience a snappy pop off the lip, spin without hucking, and never worry about hooking your edges during switch-ups. This combination of performance, forgiveness and durability all at a modest price point can only be found on the K2 Press Skis.
Shape
Jib Rocker™ - Designed for the terrain park, this elevated tip and tail and zero camber underfoot offers the best blend of playfulness for butters and surface tricks combined with increased pop for unmatched ollie power.
 
Directional Taper - A moderately wider tip than tail maximizes the ski’s performance in the forward direction. This means the ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
Construction
Aspen Core - Solid and dense wood known for its inherent strength and durability.
Park Flex Pattern - Softer in the tips and tails and stiffer underfoot.
Cap Construction - A durable, lightweight, and softer construction.

Specs

  • Terrain: Park & Pipe
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is a variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered ski and a rocker/camber/rocker ski.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
