What K2 skis were the women using in Olympic Moguls?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
 I noticed quite a few of the women were using K2 skis with really old school graphics in the Mogul competition.  I hope K2 will carry this old school look into their consumer line.  They are among the worst out there right now.

 I'm betting that they are cabrawlers, but with special graphix.

 It would have been cool if they did the stripes to match the country's colors. I would like to see these graphics on a ski but they are not in the 10-11 catalog.

I froze a close up of the K2s  They said 244 (mid?) just like the old days.  Probably a similar cut to the CaBrawlers..

Yea, I remember when one could always clearly see a brand on consumer skis.  Now some are hard to even read what the heck they are!  Oh well, the look cool though, right?

Alright, well you can walk into a movie theater and buy a beer. And, I don't mean just like a paper cup, I'm talking about a glass of beer. And, in Paris, you can buy a beer in McDonald's. You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in Paris?
Jules Winnfield:

They don't call it a Quarter Pounder with Cheese?
Vincent Vega:

No, man, they got the metric system, they don't know what the fu** a Quarter Pounder is.
Jules Winnfield:

What do they call it?
Vincent Vega:

They call it a Royal with Cheese.
Jules Winnfield:

Royal with Cheese.
Vincent Vega:

That's right.
Jules Winnfield:

What do they call a Big Mac?
Vincent Vega:

Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac.
Jules Winnfield:

Le Big Mac. What do they call a Whopper?
Vincent Vega:

I don't know. I didn't go into Burger King.

I remember a past Olympics (can't remember which one, but it was one of the last two or three) that some skiers were skiing on K2s that had the old Winter Heat graphic from the '70s. I was excited.  I skied WHs for a long time and had some of my most memorable experiences on them.  If K2 was going to bring the skis back, I was interested in finding out more.  Well, that was the last time I saw those graphics, except on my old Winter Heats that are now on my ski bench.  I don't know why K2 does that.  It must be some marketing thing.

I thought I saw 244 mid on one of the skis and thought I was just in a time warp.

Did that color scheme (stripes) have a blunt tip in the 70s?  I remember the early 80s model with the block graphics having the blunt tip, but I thought the older one with lengthwise stripes had a traditional pointed tip.  I wouldn't bet on i as I don't recall for certain.  I woulda though Rossi Smash would have posted a photo of them all side by side so we can see.  Please do when you get them.
