They are awesome skis if you can get a pair. Not hard on ebay. I have them now, but the K2 i think will be sicker. Everyone i've talked to about it has dub it project volcun, but that could and probably is just people talking. It should be cool. No metal topsheet....hopefully a sidewall versus a cap they have now. Nonetheless, they are awesome skis and should stay around for awhile. Can't wait to see what K2 does with it.
