So I just got done watching some older ski videos and it made me think back to how incredibly awesome the graphics back in the day were. Personal favorites were the yellow 1080's and the red and yellow scratches. I think it would be real sweet if they took the newer technology on skis and printed the old graphics onto them, it just seems like too much effort is put into the artwork anymore.

K2 actually sold it in 1997. First modern twin tip ski on the market. Two years before the 1080 hit the shelves and three years before the LINE 1260. It wasn't just for team members, first year had the retro woody style topsheets like the El Camino's, next year they were stealth looking with black and red. The year after, they were called the Pipeline. That is the same year the 1080 came out.
at the hill where i ski there is this old local dude that ALWAYS seems to be there and he has the original 1080s, i was stoked the first time i saw them, i wondered if he new of thier significance to so many people.
Those K2 Extremes are sweet (at least the graphics)! I probably like them because I always wanted a pair of the K2 Extremes when I was a kid. Hopefully they turn out to be a solid ski--I'd love to rock those next year!
