Comments about K2 Kung Fujas Skis - Men's - 2012/2013:
I've been out on these fantastic skis four times so far, and I cannot say enough good things about them. I upgraded from Solomon x-wings 166cm. I consider myself advanced, but not expert. I went with the 179cm length which seemed very long to me, but I found these ski like much shorter skis given the rocker, camber, rocker design.
I've been out in icy conditions, dust on crust, crud, slush, and fresh powder. I've hit the steeps, groomers, trees, and parks. These skis are a fantastic one ski quiver option. With these skis, my friends tell me I'm skiing better. I have also measured a performace improvement, as the average vertical I covered in these four sessions is >20% more per day than my average for the rest of the season. In fact, every time out on these skis, I've covered more vertical than any previous day in the season! I feel more confident, faster, and solid on these sticks.
I was concerned that the wider ski would not hold a turn on the ice... I was wrong. I can carve these even better than my old skis. I was also concerned that the longer skis would limit my ability to hit the mougles... Wrong again, as I find they have great flex, turn quickly, and help me keep myself on track. I feel much more stable and in control on these at high speeds.
I tried a few other skis as demos before settling on the Kung Fujas, such as the Rosignal S7 (wet noodle...), the Blizzard Cochise (okay, a little soft, not as easy to trun), Volkl Mantra (stiff, fast, not as good on the long ski). I thought the Mantras were a close second, but I just felt a little better and more capable on the Kung Fujas.
An interesting note, the skis throw up a little rooster tail as you ski them.
These are a great option for anyone looking to get into a wider ski for those powder days out west, and wanting to generally have only one ski for all conditions. They're also great for anyone wanting the stability of a long ski, with the turning abilities of a much shorter model.
I've never been a K2 fan, but I'm converted. These skis rock!
