Advantages: Variety of sports covered means good knowledge on products.
Disadvantages: Can be expensive due to name.
K2 sports are manufacturers of skis, snowboards, bikes and skates. All of which are off a very high standard.
However in my review im going to concentrate on their ski development.#
K2 skis are one of the leading ski makes in the world today.
Just back from my ski holiday in Val Thorens i noticed how popular the K2 brand was, with 3 out of 4 of us owning K2 skis and standing in queues for lifts K2 seemed to be everywhere. As well as a few K2 snowboards, although Burton seemed to be the leader here.
I owned the K2 Omni Sport ski, bought second hand from ebay on recommendation from a friend, and it is possibly the best ski for the intermediate looking to improve. I am not a brilliant skiier by any means but these skis gave me confidence and helped me through my turns, however dont seem great for speed or freestyle tricks, however this is not what they are designed for, so why should the be. They are perfect for what they are meant to do and can sustain a good few knocks without chipping.
My friends has newer and better versions all of which were brand new, and they were delighted with the way they performed, however i could not have a shot of them due to the vary in ski lengths we all have.
My friend who is amazing at freestyle skiing, had a freestyle K2 ski, doubled tipped, and said they were the best ski he has ever had, and run smoothly and take grinds and rails as if they were meant to be ridden always.
I would always recommend the K2 ski brand to anyone, and in the future I will most certainly look at buying a set of K2 skis.
Summary: A good make for people looking to buy some skis.
