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.
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.
Forebody Blunted round tips for a maximized sidecut with reduced weight.
Midbody Medium waist widths from 85 to 92 mm for solid grip with a moderate sidecut for quick, medium turn shapes.
Tail Blunted twin tips for a loose, easy release.
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.
Cap Construction Durable 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.
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.
Tip & Tail Hardware Metal rivets added for increased durability.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
