Released September, 2010
The Pros:Good all-purpose ski for variable conditions. Fairly good control at high speeds. Plows through crud smoothly, won't throw you off.
The Cons:Doesn't have a hard-carving edge for high speeds, not completely perfect for attacking en piste.

The Shockwave features an all-terrain rocker, which has an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, with a camber underfoot for power and holding the edges in firmer snow conditions. Torsion box technology allows for there to be specific differences between all the K2 models while still maintaining the same level of forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy. The triaxial braiding consists of braiding fibreglass around a wood core to provide torsional rigidity and control.
This model differs from the K2 Charger, which features the speed rocker, but is shares the all-terrain rocker design with the K2 Aftershock, K2 Photon, and the K2 Rictor.
