Those K's are sick! That hovercraft split is looking a little unfinished?!

The K2 skin attachment looks like a good idea, unless the holes freeze over?

Anyone see/know what the fluro green board on the rack behind is?
Massive nose/tail rocker.

Cheers

Thx for sharing the pics! :thumpsup: It's nice seeing some of the changes coming in 11/12...
The spectrum of BC goods I've seen from K2 has been impressive...
Good to see Karakorum tidying up the board clips. Not to mention the bold move by Gnu to sport the complete K setup...
The Hovercraft split is interesting, I just wish they'd bring it out in the 168W like the Solution (I know, I know, save yer breath). Hopefully JJ and company can weather the Tunisian conundrum...
Did any of you show goers see anything new in the hardboot arena? Specifically an improved slider track? I heard rumor that Spark might be making one...

Very glad to see K2 entering the split arena!

Clearing plugged/iced holes shouldn't be a problem, using the tips of one's ski/trekking poles should easily remove any obstruction.

My girlfriend's K2 skis have the same kind of skin attachment -- works perfectly!

Great to see, that K2 is stepping into that market.

I talked to Klem a few weeks ago and had a look at it, although minimal. From what he told me, it is a little stiffer then the Storm, with a bigger setback and more taper. It shouldn't be as "extreme" of a pow specific as the Euphoria, more of an aggressive Storm. I haven't seen the specs yet though, so don't know the whole story. I didn't quiz him much, but it won't be like the Euphoria. Seems interesting, although I don't think it fits my riding style.
