It was indeed a sad day when professional extreme skier, Shane McConkey, passed away while base jumping in Italy last spring. K2 decided to honor the legend by creating the Shane McConkey-inspired K2 Tribute Ski. Its graphics are derived from McConkey’s life and all net proceeds will go to his wife and daughter. At 160/130/120 underfoot and sizes in a 169, 179 and 189, the model is exactly what McConkey would have envisioned in his ideal set of equipment. Only 500 limited edition pairs were produced and are currently being sold worldwide. Please join us in helping to support the legacy of Shane McConkey, a true pioneer in the sport of skiing.
