Product Info

In memory of K2 legend Shane McConkey, the limited edition K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Skis are built on the K2 Pontoon chassis, one of the most profound innovations in ski design in decades. With its massive dimensions, surf-inspired rocker, and powder-specific sidecut that tapers toward the tail, the 2010 Shane McConkey Tribute Skis are an easy-to-ski powder weapon. An imposing tip width of 160mm combined with an equally impressive waist width of 130mm ensures the tip of the K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Skis will stay above surface at all times. And while technically a powder ski, the K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Skis deliver sidecut where you need it most—right underfoot—for maneuverability on firmer conditions or just to get back to the lifts for a second lap. Graphically inspired by Shane’s personality, ability and many contributions to our sport, the K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Skis are a must-have. Approximately 500 Pair of the unique, individually numbered, commemorative skis will be produced. All net proceeds generated by the sales of the Shane McConkey Tribute ski will be donated to Shane’s family.

Comments about K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Pontoon Skis 2010:

These skis are great for what they are made for. One a powder day with anything over 6inches of freshies there is not a better ski out there. However be prepared for a ski that is taxing to use on anything other than powder. Due to the skis being rockered it takes a lot of effort to carve on groomers or even just brushed snow. While on a powder day I would never be skiing anything other than freshies for people who like the occasional groomer Just remember you will not enjoy those groomers as much on these skis. Otherwise they are the best anyone could ask for in a powder ski. The graphics are great. The cause is even better. If you are wondering whether or not to get these skis the cause is worth getting them alone. but pair it with the amazing ski that is being purchased there is no question.

        The pontoon is the ultimate pow ski.It handles speed way better than you would imagine and is amazing in trees. It is very stable and forgiving.Its definetly a spetialty ski but as far as pow skis go its legendary.

          Comments about K2 Shane McConkey Tribute Pontoon Skis 2010:

          The Tribute edition of the Pontoon skis the same as this year's regular version - but is a great way to say "Thanks Shane!" and support his family. A little bit of extra goodness added to an already great ski...

          There's a special place in my heart for this ski. The first time I used them, Pontoons forever changed my view of skiing. I was blown away. And I still am. Don't be afraid to hop on a pair.

          They are a total win in powder. But they are not just a "powder ski". Echoing what Bp said - the ski is in its element in any soft snow. Ski them in spring slush, soft wind buff, etc., and you'll be amazed. Pick your turn type and shape. Tip dive, edge catch, etc. become things of the past. Instant turns in trees and chutes are confidence inspiring. Once you get used to Pontoons, even firm groomers are no impediment to getting back to the lift in good form. On soft days, they are a hoot anywhere on the hill.

          Other great rockered skis have arrived on the scene. I love some of them too. But the Pontoon is still among the cream of the crop and is on my short list for good snow days.

          Pick your length based on intended use. All three sizes have a ton of "float". If you ski tight trees, chutes, etc., tend a bit shorter. For wide open places, tend longer. I've used both the 179 and 189 over the past four seasons. I currently use 179s mounted +1 because I like the extra little agility margin for messing about in tighter places. But I'd be happy to ski the 189s as well.

          The pintail design makes Pontoons relatively unidirectional. If you want to ski switch and do jibby things in powder, consider skis of the Hell Bent, EP Pro, etc. genre.

          About me: Mid-fifties. 6'1" and a bit over 200 pounds. Super enthusiastic - but not what you'd call an expert technical skier. I manage to play with a lot of different skis under a variety of conditions. I'm a big fan of fresh soft maritime snow.
