After months of rumours, speculation and general newschoolery... was announced today that Pep has signed a new 3 year deal with K2 skis. In addition to his role as an athlete, Pep will be stepping up his contribution to K2 product design and will lend his vision to direct K2's new athlete-inspired freestyle skis.

"Working with K2 for the past 13 years has positively shaped my skiing," said Fujas. "No matter what part of the world I'm in, I can always depend on my K2s to help me push my abilities in any terrain."

"We are ecstatic to have Pep continuing with the program. He is a gifted athlete who epitomizes what K2 is all about," said K2 Team Manager Zach Doleac. "I have no doubt that he will excel in his new role, driving freestyle product development. Designing and testing freestyle skis is familiar territory for Pep; he was directly involved with the creation of the Fujative and Kung Fujas pro-models that bear his name. He'll continue to have the opportunity to drive innovation by playing a key role in the development of an entirely new collection of skis. Wasting no time, Pep has been a part of several development meetings where he gave valuable feedback from early season prototype testing. Besides leading the development of K2's skis, Pep will also lend feedback to further strengthen K2's All-Mountain SpYne and Pinnacle Freeride boot lines."
