K2 is an American company founded in 1962 by brothers Bill and Don Kirschner. K2 is known for pioneering fiberglass ski technology, which made skis significantly lighter and more lively than their wood and metal contemporaries and by 1994, in a new factory, K2 had produced its own line of snowboards. Famous users of K2 skis include Seth Morrison, Doug Coombs and Glen Plake and some big names in Snowboarding too, Xavier De Le Rue and Jeremy Jones.
Their women’s specific skis aren’t just the men’s skis with a different graphic, they are designed specifically for women by the K2 Alliance, Women making kick-ass ski’s! The goal for the Alliance was to create a collection of skis designed from the ground up to specifically address the needs of female skiers of every level, type, and size.
