Competition Park Slayer that Lives on the Podium
The all-new 2010-11 K2 Revival ski is the comp ski of choice for Factory Team athletes. It’s rock solid Twin Tech construction combined with ABSorb Sidewalls makes this ski stable enough to rip any terrain forward and to handle the toughest of landings switch. The Revival’s all-new Jib Rocker Technology combined with bi-directional taper makes this twin tip ski easier to maneuver for effortless presses and butters on a variety of features forward or switch.

Jib RockerThis elevated tip and tail, zero camber underfoot, offers the best blend of playfulness for butters and surface tricks combined with increased pop for unmatched ollie power.
K2 SchizoFrantic InsertsThe K2 SchizoFrantic inserts allow for super fast mounting of the new K2/Maker Griffon SchizoFrantic binding system without the need for any drilling. The Schizo binding itself uses the tested and proven Triple Pivot Elite toe and Inter Pivot Heel with an ultra lightweight, low stand height track and cable system that enable you to mount once and adjust a full 6 cm along the ski. The insert patterns allow you to ski at the ‘core center’ mark for the optimal park and switch performance, or all the way back at a more traditional mounting location for powder of softer snow conditions. The increased surface area of the insert rings provides twice the pullout strength of standard binding screws.
Bi-Directional TaperThe tip is still wider but closer in width to the tail. This lets the ski perform exceptionally well while skiing in the forward direction but the taper enables the skier to have similar switch arc for better and more consistent switch riding.
Twin Tech SidewallsThis new Twin Tip specific construction process increases the durability of sidewall skis. A traditional sidewall construction produces a 90 degree angle where the top material and sidewall meet. The Twin Tech construction actually rolls the top material into the sidewall reducing the angle that is prone to abuse.
ABSorb-ABS/Urethane Hybrid SidewallsThis horizontal sidewall construction sandwiches a urethane layer in between ABS for shock ABSorption, lessening the impact of harsh landings and blows to the rider. The urethane is only used under foot to maximize the dampening but ABS is used toward the tip and tail to maximize performance and control.
Tip and Tail Plates and RivetsK2 introduced tip and tail rivets 7 years ago on the Factory Series skis. They were functionally developed for additional protection, reinforcing the tip and tail of the ski against delamination. Although function is still the primary purpose, K2 has evolved the rivets and plates into stylized components.
3.5 MM EdgesMost of our factory series skis come standard with a thicker more durable steel edge to prolong the life of the ski. Normal thickness of edges is around 2.5mm whereas the Factory Series skis’ use a 3.5mm edge to withstand the added abuse. This thicker edge is far more resistant to crackingand grinding for a more durable, longer lasting ski.
Torsion Box TechnologyTorsion Box construction is the foundation for the widest range of skis designed by K2. Depending on the dimensions of a ski, and the amount of flex and torsion designed into it, one model of a Torsion Box ski can differ greatly from another. The versatility in the construction enables us to build everything from entry-level through expert skis. While there will be significant differences between a DarkSide and a MissConduct, they do share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy that can be found in all Torsion Box skis.
Triaxial braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around a wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control. Developed in 1988 by K2 engineers, the patented triaxial braiding machine interlocks strands of fiberglass around a milled wood core. This unique method produces skis with great torsional strength, that maintains the lively flex patterns of the wood core.
