k2skates Shredding a skate park. Cruising a sidewalk. Tearing up the bike path. Navigating city streets. These are just some of the places that you might find a skater. While locations and styles differ, the joy of skating is universal. The joy of skating ensures our commitment to what we do and making sure it’s done right. Every skate is designed with a purpose: to create a fun and positive experience for you, the skater. -K2 Skates | #thatnewnew #k2skates #style #skatesforeveryone

GOING BIG TO GET HOME k2skates Bigger wheels create more stability at speed, provide better shock absorption, and improve momentum. Alternating the wheel size creates a lower stance resulting in more stability. Combined, you have a skate perfectly tuned for crushing the marathon circuit. | #distance #gofast #gofar #needforspeed Comments: k2skates See page 18 for more info.

A DAY IN MY SKATES - FITNESS PROFILE k2skates “This season let’s make a commitment. Let’s shift our intentions. Let’s aspire to put an end to being sick and tired. Let us evolve openly and zealously in becoming more active, happy and healthy. Joining a gym and or hiring a personal trainer is not essential, nor necessary. Getting active is simple! Turn off your T.V., get off your couch, get outside…move, celebrate, embrace your abundant abilities and nature’s vast accessibility. Activity blooms in many shapes and forms. But remember, life’s too short for boring workouts. -ambershadwickfitsidehhi #TeamK2Skate #Getoutside #GetFit #GetHappy View all 2017 comments SPRING/SUMMER 2017

A DAY IN MY SKATES - X-TRAINING PROFILE k2skates “My goal is to compete in an inline skate marathon this summer. I originally started my athletic career as a runner but had to stop because of a knee injury. The beauty of skating is that I can still get an awesome workout without the pounding that I get from running on pavement. I usually wake up early to get to the gym before work, and then have an 8-15 mile afternoon session on my skates. What I am realizing is that you don’t have to go fast all the time, you just have to go.” – Athlete | #adayinmyskates #Goals #crosstraining #workoutwednesday View all 2017 comments lifeinskates Get me racing now!

A DAY IN MY SKATES - RACE PROFILE k2skates Racing is not for the faint of heart. It’s for those looking for a challenge, a competition, and most of all, for those who want to go fast. // Introducing the new MOD skate series with two model options, on an all new 4X110 and a rockered 3 wheel chassis. The bigger wheels carry their speed better, are more stable at high speeds, and dampen road vibrations. Think the MOD 125 uses too big of a wheel? By rockering the wheels with a 120mm wheel underfoot, we effectively keep your stance lower keeping things stable. Those old PR’s don’t stand a chance. | #firstplace #trainingstartsyesterday #technology #goingthedistance View all 2017 comments SPRING/SUMMER 2017

A DAY IN MY SKATES - AGGRESSIVE PROFILE k2skates These are not your run-of-the-mill aggressive skates. These are your hard-charging, ankle-supporting, Teflon® enabled, rockerable frame, aggressive skates. On the vert ramp, in the street, and in the park, there are no arenas you won’t be able to throw down in. These are the kind of skates that make you say “Did I really just hit that feature”? The answer is yes, yes you did. | #reengineered #stealthy #allinadayswork View all 2017 comments SPRING/SUMMER 2017

A DAY IN MY SKATES - FRAME PROFILE k2skates A key component that greatly enhances the performance of the all new Front Street and Unnatural skates is K2’s new UFS compliant frame. This frame can to be ridden flat ensuring that your inner wheels won’t get hung up on H-Block based tricks. For those that want to ride a rockered setup, K2’s frame hardware allows you to add rocker to your wheel setup without having to buy smaller wheels. If that’s not enough, we channeled out a huge groove that works in harmony with the new Aggressive Base to create the easiest of platforms for locking on, whether riding a flat or rockered setup. #UFS compliant #Integrated H-Block Design # Rockerable Frame Spacers Included #available as aftermarket View all 61 comments SPRING/SUMMER 2017

APPENDIX - BUYERS GUIDE

APPENDIX - TECH GLOSSARY

A guide to choosing the perfect skate! Inline skating is an amazingly fun way to engage in an active lifestyle. Skating is one of the few true full body workouts that is considered low impact but also burns a significant amount of calories. What sets inline apart from other activities is how accessible skating can be. Whether you are looking for a “greener” way to commute or a low impact way to exercise, inline skating offers something for everyone.

#START HERE

If you are thinking about getting into the sport for the first time or even upgrading your current skates, below are some key things you need to know in order to select the perfect skate.

FIT Comfort and performance are what define a good skate fit. The ideal fit has your toes lightly touching the front of the boot while the rest of the boot feels like a semifirm handshake around the foot. This snug fit will get a little looser as you break in your skates over time. Going too big or too small on your inline skates can create fit problems in the long run. A sloppy fit delivers poor performance and a skate that fits too tightly can cut off circulation.

WHEEL SIZE While inline wheels have grown over the years, the thought process that “bigger is better” doesn’t always apply. Wheel size should be based on skater ability and skating style. New skaters

who are getting comfortable on their inline skates will appreciate smaller wheel configurations or setups. More experienced skaters that use skating as a workout tool will utilize a bigger wheel that allows for higher speeds. Advanced skaters looking to maximize speed gravitate towards larger wheels. For advanced urban skaters requiring more freestyle performance, we recommend a wheel size of 80mm-100mm to blend speed with optimal maneuverability. Aggressive skaters who demand specialized performance for the ramp, park, or street require skates with smaller wheels; the K2 Unnatural comes with a 60mm wheel setup but can accommodate a maximum wheel size of 61mm.

BEARINGS

PROTECTIVE GEAR

There are two types of bearings found on inline skates; ABEC rated bearings have set the standard since day one and ILQ bearings are designed specifically for inline skates. ABEC bearings are rated at ABEC 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9. A general rule of thumb for ABEC bearings is the higher the number, the tighter the tolerances, which leads to higher speeds and a smoother roll. ILQ bearings are specifically designed for skating, come in many configurations and are geared towards the high-end skater. ILQ bearings feature special skate lubricant and differ from ABEC in that ILQ bearings feature 6 balls which increases load rating for skating.

Do you wear a seatbelt when you drive? Do you use eye protection when you use power tools? Do you wear pads and a helmet when skating? You should’ve answered yes to all three. Smart skaters wear protection, (helmets and wrist guards at a minimum) to ensure that high abrasion areas are covered. The design of today’s pad sets create protective gear that is light, ventilated, and breathable, keeping you comfortable in a pad set that fits like a second skin. Remember, the right fit is key to any pad set and helmet. Make sure your gear has a snug fit and doesn’t shift while skating.

Traditional Lacing

Aggressive Cuff

Aggressive Frame

Customize your lacing and knot the same way you tie your shoes.

Speed Lacing System

Secure your skates with one pull. The K2 Speed Lacing System makes it easy to get in and out of your skates. Just one pull of the strap, roll, and stow and you’re ready to skate – it’s that easy.

Boa® Closure System

By designing K2 Skate’s upper and cuff around the Boa® Closure System, K2 has created the most comfortable and high performance fit available. The Boa® Closure System gives skaters the ability to fine-tune their fit while skating. This eliminates pulling over to the side of the trail to tighten your skate laces, allowing you to keep cruising. The Boa® Closure System also allows for skaters of any age to get in and out of their skates in seconds. How convenient!

HI-LO TECHNOLOGY: Performance Hi-Lo

Featured on the K2 V02 100 X Pro, Performance Hi-Lo Technology allows the skater to take advantage of the acceleration and maneuverability of the smaller front wheels while enjoying the top- end speed of the larger rear wheels. Performance Hi-Lo skates are defined by a 10mm difference between the front and rear wheels.

Youth Hi-Lo

Featured in the K2 Youth series, Youth Hi-Lo is designed to increase confidence and minimize risk by creating a low center of gravity; providing excellent stability and maneuverability. Skates outfitted with Youth Hi-Lo Technology have a 4mm difference in wheel size.

Aggressive skaters need more support than most skater types. The development process for the K2 Aggressive cuffs involved huge gaps, slides and plenty of topside and boot tricks. This durable cuff is as good as it gets when you are out to destroy.

Stability Plus Cuff

This cuff sets the standard for recreational and fitness skating cuffs. The Stability Plus Cuff is the perfect blend of support where you need it, eliminating overall skate weight and offering versatility for a wide range of skaters.

VO2 Cuff

Designing cuffs for big-wheeled X-Training skates can be a challenge. You need to account for the higher wheel height, which means more support with no extra weight. The VO2 cuff creates the best of both worlds: extra support and lightweight design.

MOD 110 Cuff

By using stiffer material inserts on the side of the cuff we are able to provide more support and stability, while still making the cuff flexible enough to conform to your ankle for a comfortable fit.

MOD 125 Cuff

The MOD 125 cuff uses carbon fiber reinforcements for increased torsional stiffness and lateral support. The use of carbon fiber also provides the perfect strength-to-weight ratio, keeping it light and durable.

Jr. Boa® Cuff

K2 and Boa® worked together to create this seamless integration of a Youth skate with a Boa® Closure System. This cuff offers the maximum amount of support that kids need and provides the “easy-on, easy-off” properties that make a Boa® Closure System a must have on youth product.

VORTECH VENTILATION SYSTEM:

Integrated into the skate, this 3-part system is designed to keep feet cool and dry by channeling air through the base, footbed and upper.

The Vortech Base

• A sculpted base features 7 air intake vents, exhaust vents, and vapor channels. • Designed to force air through intake vents, channeling air towards the heel of the skate and out the exhaust vents. • Minimizes heat and moisture during skating, for cool, fresh feet.

The Vortech Footbed

• A perforated, antimicrobial footbed. • Designed to pull the moisture from your feet down into the vapor channels of the Vortech base.

The Vortech Upper

• Provides support and breathability. • Upper mesh allows heat and moisture to easily move away from the foot. • Perforated lasting board works in harmony with the Vortech footbed to channel out moisture.

WHEEL FORMULAS:

Aggressive frames are designed to grind and take a beating, which is why K2 uses the fast-sliding, extra thick composite materials. The K2 Aggressive frame features our innovative hex frame spacers; making it easy to customize your wheel configuration from rockered to flat in no time, while also being fully UFS compatible.

F.B.I. Frame

The Frame Base Interlocking (F.B.I.) system creates a composite recreational frame that absorbs more road vibration than any other K2 frame. The F.B.I. is great for new skaters and those skating on rough terrain.

D.C. Aluminum Frame

Die Cast (D.C.) Aluminum frames are known for providing excellent power transfer and stability at any speed. The K2 D.C. Aluminum design delivers both properties in a mediumlength, highly-maneuverable, fitness-oriented frame.

Hi-Lo Frame

The K2 Hi-Lo frames take advantage of smaller wheels in the front and larger wheels in the back. This provides a stable, maneuverable frame that creates a skating position with a low center of gravity.

VO2.2 Frame

The V02.2 frame is a light, versatile Aluminum X-Training frame. This maneuverable frame has enough length and stiffness to provide stability at the highest speeds and offers a power transfer formerly found only in training skates.

R80 & R100 Frame

As part of new additions to the Lifestyle category, these frames are built to be maneuverable, stable and utilize bigger wheels for skating in an all new way.

MOD 125 Frame

The MOD 125 frame is an all new development in the K2 Training segment that’s built on a 125-120-125 mm three wheel configuration. By utilizing the rockered wheel set up we are able to ultimately create a lower stance height despite the big wheels. By using the bigger wheels, there is better rolling momentum and more stability over rough roads that might be encountered in a skate marathon. Lastly, we chose 7000 series extruded aluminum for extra strength, without sacrificing weight.

ORIGINAL SOFTBOOT®

K2’s patented Original SoftBoot® Techonology creates a lightweight piece of performance footwear that acts as a breathable second skin for your foot. This shoe-like design has set the standard for fit, comfort and performance in inline skate for over 20 years.

Active Formula

Our Active formula wheels feature an 80A hardness that is proven to provide a smooth and stable ride ideal for fitness and recreational skaters alike.

Performance Formula

This 82A formula creates a durable, energetic wheel, with a lot of rebound, that delivers a smooth roll for high-end fitness performance.

Speed Formula

This 85A formula delivers a durable wheel engineered for achieving the highest of speeds. Speed formula is the choice for x-trainers, racers and speed junkies.

Urban Formula

Our urban wheel formula is geared towards those skaters looking for a full profile wheel for aggressive or even urban commuting. It uses a slightly harder durometer at 90A that makes them more durable without taking away from their ride quality.

Elite Formula

The new Elite Formula is our premier wheel in our line up that is geared to be light-weight and fast. Despite having a race profile, the urethane mix that is used still provides plenty of grip and allows you to maintain your speed even over the roughest road conditions.
