The K2 Press (12/13) is a ski that is made for one thing and one thing only, rails.
The press is designed for the park rider who is interested primarily in rails. It features K2's 'Jib Rocker',no camber, and a rockered tip and tail. This results in a very playful ski underfoot. It is light weight and will pop or butter for days. All that playful-ness comes at a cost though, and that cost is stability. Get over roughly 30mph, and unless you have it leaned way over, your going to start getting some serious jitters off both tip and tail, as the lack of camber rears its ugly head. If you are going for big air, this is most certainly not what you want beneath you.
As far as durability is concerned, mine have held up well so far. I have only spent a less than a dozen days in the park on them, and a number of summer sessions. They have held up well so far, no cracks in the edges or delams, but I am not the hardest hitting park rider by any means. They are made with cap construction, so they are bound to be less durable than a more expensive ski, but for somewhere around 200 dollars with out bindings, what can you expect? The topcoats do cut extremely easily, but that is to be expected.
As far as design and style is concerned, I will leave that up to the reader to decide on, I personally do not particularly like the topcoat, but the purchase was driven by features, not by graphics.
I would definitely recommend the Press to anyone who is interested in rails primarily who loves a buttery and playful ski. If stability and big air is your game, look elsewhere.
