Everyone who slides on snow owes a debt of gratitude to K2 founders, Don and Bill Kirschner. Pioneers of fiberglass ski technology, they were some of the first ski makers to move away from old-school wood and metal skis.
Today, K2 continues to push the edge with innovative snowboards, skis, boots, climbing skins and bindings for everyone from cross-country skiers to Olympic athletes to snowboarding and skiing pros.
From its humble beginnings on an island in Washington State's Puget Sound, K2 has become an internationally-known maker of snow and snowboard gear famous for both its killer performance and splashy graphics.
In its never-ending pursuit of quality, K2 sponsors an elite team of skiers and snowboarders who test those snowboards, skis, bindings and boots before they ever arrive at REI.
The K2 Women's Alliance places special emphasis on women snowboarders, designing, testing and producing womenâs snowboard equipment.
At REI you'll find top-rated and top-selling gear from K2, plus plenty of sale & clearance deals and bargains.
