The Press remains the ultimate youth-ski value of the K2 collection. Buyers can expect to find it priced under around $300 in most shops. K2 builds it with a traditional "directional" shape (wider tip than tail) for all-mountain versatility, but sees it spending the majority of its time in the park. It's a metal-free wood-core (aspen) construction with a park-specific flex pattern (soft tip and tail, stiff underfoot). K2's Jib Rocker combines symmetrical rocker tip and tail with zero camber underfoot for easy spinning from forward to switch and back. As with all K2 park skis, the edges are extra thick (3.5 mm) to withstand park/urban abuse and the base graphic is as cool as the topsheet.
