Great all-around skis! Awesome grip on the hardpack…

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $380

Summary

Great all-around skis! Awesome grip on the hardpack and enough float to get you through the deep stuff. Even solid in the park. They are a bit heavy, but that's my only gripe here.

Pros

  • Versatile
  • Flexible
  • Durable

Cons

  • Heavy

Used these skis all but 1 day of my 130-day season this past year in Tahoe, and they were great in all conditions. I could have used something lighter for backcountry, but as a resort ski they were flawless. Put some nicks in the topsheet but that is to be expected, skied them hard and they kept up through all.

I would recommend to anyone!

Here's what other sites are saying:

The K2 Kung Fujas Ski has a smooth, poised feeling underfoot, a certain powerful playfulness, and it's laced with a material similar to the versatile, innovative DNA that made Pep Fujas an institution in the world of freeskiing. And go figure, this ski was actually designed by Backcountry. com and K2 athlete Pep Fujas himself (so you know it's good). Durable sandwich construction shrugs off abusive, rough terrain and delivers edging power in icy chutes, the aspen and paulownia core pops like a can of soda shaken at high altitude, and tip and tail attachments hold skins so securely you'd swear they were welded to the base. This is a ski that feels like an extension of your own body on the ground, in the air, on soft snow or hard, and underneath the tram or way past the furthest backcountry gate.

If the pristine backcountry is your play space, these K2 Men's Kung Fujas Skis are your freeride skis. Freeride or freeskiing skis are specifically engineered for backcountry terrain and turn more freely in pristine snow than conventional skis designed for groomed runs. These freeride skis feature waist widths that are wider than most recreational skis, so you appreciate enhanced floatation in heavy terrain. The ski tips are moderately curved upward for improved maneuverability in broken and pristine conditions. The K2 Men's Kung Fujas Skis also has vibration-dampening materials to minimize the shocks often experienced while skiing on ice at substantial speeds.
