Description

Take your A game anywhere on the mountain with this true one-ski quiver.

Pep Fujas knows what it’s like to be a mountain monkey who just can’t pick between giant powder lines and terrain park tomfoolery. So he helped develop the K2 Kung Fujas Alpine Ski to follow in the footsteps of the old K2 Seth Pistols’ celebrated mid-fat twin-tip design. Click into the Kung Fujas and find out what all-mountain really means.
  • An easy flex, poppy feel, and torsional rigidity combine to let you charge from peak to park
  • Plenty of width and a mini 5 /30 rocker enhance the ski�s powder performance
  • Bi-directional taper and raised tail let you carve switch and spin like a mofo
  • A triaxial-braided solid fir core shows the crud who�s in charge

Posted on

I bought K2 Kung Fujas in 2009 ( 179cm, 126-95-120) with Marker Schizofrantic bindings. I much like the skis but now want to progress Off Piste and do a mountaincraft course to learn ski touring techniques. I am not a climber and do not aspire to ski mountaineering, but am willing to hike for the descent!
To do this I will need to fit touring bindings and I was hoping I could fit Fritchi bindings for this end, rather than buy another pair of skis. I will also need skins, which I have not used before. I understand that fitting skins to twintips like KF's can be difficult and I have heard of people cutting bites out of the tail ends in order to secure skins.
On K2's website it appears that a purpose made skin for this years Kung Fujas is shortly to be produced, however , the dimensions of the new ski are slightly different.
I have, upto now, only skied in Europe. I add this as I understand American conditions may suite different skin materials.
I would be pleased to receive any advice others may have concerning the above.
In advance, many thanks for your assistance!

would these make a good ski mounted with a pair of dukes/barons for small excursions away from the the lifts. not for any great length of tour, but something to have fun in the soft snow away from resort and also capable of skiing whatever the groomers are like that day.

hi im about 130Ib and om about 5'6 5'7. i ski about 2 to 4 times a week. on my old skies i cracked the top sheet when i pulled my bindings out during a tail press and im in the market for a new ski. would the k2 kung fujas in a 169 be a good ski. i ski a local park that grooms like 1 or 2 a month. thanks

Responded on

I skied the Kung Fujas a couple of days last season. I really enjoyed them. I actually didn't ski park the two days a demoed them and I skied them in a longer size than what you are looking into, but I really liked it as an all mountain ski for all sorts of different conditions.

Solid all-around resort ski

I got a pair of K2 Kung Fujas for kite skiing as they handle chop, crust, powder and hard pack well, and they're also twin tips, which is useful in kite skiing for backing up or landing switch after getting boosted. But, after getting them for kiting, I found I loved them as an all around resort ski even more.

These skis walk that fine line between being forgiving, yet still snappy and performance oriented. I ski them in a short length (169cm) and have found that dulling the tips helps a lot to keep them from being too hooky - otherwise, all you needed to do was put a bit of pressure on your big toe and these skis would come around. They are very responsive.

I'm not a park & pipe rider, but I liked these skis as general all around performers as they did everything, and did it well. You can probably find a better hardpack or groomer ski, but the Fujas can handle the bumps, crud and powder, and then be right at home on the cruisers as well. I recently took them up to Sun Valley and straightlined a bunch of runs with some friends. The biggest problem was the length, but aside from that, they felt stable at high speeds.

I wish they didn't have those little rivets on the tips/tails as they tend to make your skis hang up if you ever cross your tips/tails. Not a big issue, but I'd remove them if I could.

I have these mounted up with a pair of Marker Dukes, which if nothing else makes for a very pretty ski & binding set up as they have the same color scheme.

Posted on

I think i am going to demo these next time i go to mammoth. Definitely sold on the schizofrantic bindings.
I am 5'11" and barely 140. Should i get the 169's or the 179's?
I think ill charge this harder on the powder and steep runs than in the park but the closest resort to me only has a park that is fun. What boots would be good? Most boots i have had hit my shins so hard.
I am an advanced skier but this will be my first pair of skis that are mine.

Responded on

Definitely the 179.
The 169 will be far too short for you.

For boots, go to a quality boot fitter and have them help you. Buying boots online off other people's recommendations is a horrible idea. That won't get you the best fit.

Responded on

Go 179 for sure. They will be better for you than the 169's in terms of versatility in all conditions. Hope you demo them and enjoy them. They are awesome skis.

Best Answer Responded on

First off, if you are hitting your shins on your boots, you are obviously not a good skier. Second, if you have never owned a pair of skis before, you are definitely not an advanced skier, maybe one on the bunny slope. Third, if you want me to help you out check out some skis more in your ability level, probably some junior or women skis. Your welcome

Responded on

if you can honestly tell yourself that your a good skier, get the 179s. I grew up with parents that were into the rental scene as well. i was so excited when I was 17 and I bought my first pair of skis, They were the k2 seths from 2 or 3 years ago and they were way bigger than anything id skied before. couple months later I turn 18, move to colorado for good. I'm so happy I decided to go with a bigger ski. I went from a 161 dynastar troublemaker to a 171 K2 seth (I'm 5'7" 135). bottom line if its time to upgrade do it, youll be happy you did

Responded on

You are probably not a good skier so just face it. I have never heard of anyone hurting their shins by hitting them on their ski boots. Get some lessons before you get these skis, and get some knew ski boots if they are,"hitting on your shins". What does that even mean?

Responded on

I do not get what you are saying. I would definitely go with the 79's, but get some new ski boots or something. I agree with the other guy that said was saying,"how do you hit your shins against your boots." I still don't get it and if you could tell me that would be great.

Fun sticks

Great skis for the park and even better in the deep stuff. Nice and stiff, so moving through the powder is pretty effortless.

I wouldn't ever take these out just to cruise the groomers though.

If you like tree skiing in the deep stuff you'll love these skis.

Awesome

These skis are great, perfect for those who want to go in the park, ski the groomers, and still hit the steeps and powder all in one ski. The perfect one ski quiver for those who cannot afford multiple skis. Fun and playful these skis have pretty good pop and do surprisingly well in the park for their size. I am however concerned about the quality of construction of these skis. Being made in China now worried me before buying these skis and now i think it may make a difference. I have taken these skis out for 4 days this season and they are beat to shit already with gouges in the topsheet and slight cracks on the sidewall. These skis after 4 days of use look like my salomon foils after 4 years of use. Just sayin

Just got back into skiiing. Advanced but no longer expert -- ski it all but not super aggressive. Never really used fat skis. Looking for an all-mountain, big mountain powder/crud/groomer ski. Sounds like these are well balanced. I found a good deal on some 189's. Are they just too big? I'm 6'5" and 230.

The Fujas is not a difficult to ski. Its a great shape everyday use in the west. A person of your size will have no trouble with the 189.

All Mtn Rage-r

I have skied this ski all season and it is one of the best do-everything skis out there. The dims and flex make it stable on high speed groomers, but fir core allows it to be soft enough for park slaying. Great for cruising trees and choppy pow the day after b/c of the waist and shoulder width. I have skied these boards in every condition from 30" at Alta/Bird to bluebird days in A51. Solid off of kickers and very stable on landings. However the mid wide dims do make it a chore spinning on to rails and multiple switch ups. This ski pushed me to a new level of shredding.

Responded on

Recently mounted these with Cobra R8s as my park tele setup. Mounted my rattraps at almost true center, and they are extremely nimble, and handle better mounted there IMO. I previously had them mounted at "progressive" with Griffons. At center, they switch up way quicker on rails and feel a bit lighter even. But freeheeling switch is trickier as there is less tip in fromt of your toes.

someone stole my review :)

(mr frackman)

had these things mounted up yesterday and took 'em out at sugarloaf. beautiful day to ski. NO WIND! (that's rare). nice fresh dry snow from the previous 3 days. just skied the great, long, perfect fall line groomers and WOW - these things RAIL. and with that short radius, you can snap 'em around almost as tight as with a slalom ski. and yes, they'll do gs turns too & handle a bit of speed. but above all it was a TREAT to be on such FLEXIBLE, TACTILE boards. they smooth out the ride, and little balance errors are compensated for (by the width i guess?). very very nice to be on a ski not loaded with layers and layers of titanium. the wood has a great absorbing/springing effect. put griffon schizos on them, centered @ +3cm - i might nudge them back a millimeter or 2, +3 is darn close to perfect for the way i like to ski. once it dumps, i'll probably want to slide back to +1 or +2. up till yesterday i had skied exclusively on race skis and beefy, metallic all mountain skis. maybe if i'm skiing some day when it's REALLY ICY, i'll bring that stuff back out. but i would not be surprised if the FUJAS become my GO-TO ski for almost everything else.

GOOD JOB, K2

Phenomenal and Fun!

These skis are awesome! They can do everything and do it all well. A mid-fat waist of 95mm and a bit of rocker in the tip and tail keep this ski afloat and nimble in the powder. These are also super fun on groomers and can ski the hardpack fast and carve nice turns all day. When it comes to bumps and tight turns these skis are still top notch. They are quick edge to edge and I really liked them in big bumps. These things also rock when it comes to hitting jumps and getting air. This is a really high quality and performance ski that is a real quiver of one: Powder, groomers/hardpack, bumps, park, and backcountry.

One Ski Quiver

This is a great all-mountain ski that I would call a "Jack-of-all-Trades, Master-of-None." Not necessarily a bad thing though. A good skier can make up for what these ski's lack in all situations and the ability to go anywhere and do anything on the mountain means I don't have to take a powder ski, quick groomer sticks and a twin-tip park ski up the hill. These ski's will definitely do it all, it just takes a bit of skill to get them to do it all well.

Sick skis, but...

So these skis are absolutely sick, but I have no idea how long they will last. I'm 5'10" 185 lbs and got the 179 (they actually measure in at 182), locked it up with schizos. I've been on them 5 days so far in conditions ranging from bulletproof ice to 4-5 inches of freshies, and I've had the binding position only on dead center so far. I've used them jumping, jibbing, on groomers, and ducking ropes for freshies and trailside jumps with questionable coverage. The first two days I was on bulletproof ice and the edges held great, much better than I expected for 95mm underfoot-I've been blown away so far by how maneuverable these skis are and how well they ski the whole mountain at center mount. I'm not sure if it's the bindings or the skis, but this rig skis smaller than my 175 pocket rockets with amazing control, edge grip and maneuverability. Right out of the box the edges were super sharp, so sharp that when I crossed my tips landing switch on a 180 over a low 40ft gap, the edge went all the way through the sidewall of the other ski, through my pants, and left a pretty nice gash on my shin. At center mount, these skis are super stable landing jumps both forward and switch. I'm also very happy with the mini-rocker, it's been great in the freshies I've gotten so far, and I'm sure will be phenomenal in deeper powder. The mini-rocker also skips right over random crud piles on the skied out trails of the overcrowded mountain I ski at-no more eating shit while trying to straightline through crud piles! These skis don't have much camber underfoot, so they aren't very snappy, but they are pretty forgiving. They are nice and poppy off jumps and spin effortlessly at dead center. They are also great on rails, which brings me to my one issue with the ski-durability. I'm not sure if the durability issue is attributed to the skis, the place I ski at, or how hard I am on skis. So...here's the damage inventory to my skis so far: Heavy edge wear and two bumpy, mangled edges underfoot (I have magnatraction now, apparently), two sidewall shots that came awfully close to hitting the core and bubbled up the topsheet(both from the edges of the other ski), some interesting and unusually shaped marks on the base, a ton of topsheet chipping especially at tip and tail, and a large top sheet peel roughly the size of my middle finger. The edges are my biggest concern, but I haven't noticed any effect on the performance, and the damage could be from sliding poorly maintained rails (I did notice that the rails and boxes I was hitting seemed to be catchy and were not smooth). The bases held up well against these bumpy semi-rusty rails, but have some interesting marks I've chalked up to skiing on areas with questionable coverage. The topsheet damage is definitely from 1000s of new yorker tourons skiing over my tips and tails in line, and I'm hoping it does not lead to any internal damage or delamming. So, in short, these skis are amazing but the jury is out on their durability. If you are especially hard on your skis, you may want to look elsewhere.

I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE THESE SKIS

Cant say anything but friggin amaizing. I was a little concerned at first with how they would handle on hardpack, but they ripped it like nobody's business. You make turns effortlessly. I mounted these at the traditional point, becaue i do not plan on taking these in the park. Solid all mountain ski.

Responded on

I agree totally, i am 164cm and have the 169cm, had them 10 days and cant find anthing wrong with except that the top sheet ( the bit with graphics on) wrecks easily (hit a root and a little gauge was made) but who cares about a few scratches on top!
recommend buying with marker griffon schizo, its amazing.
great for groomers, amazing in powder, doesnt spin to quickly in air but not slowly either

i have 179 KF's. i'm 58 and a very good, strong skier. but i don't particularly like to ski too fast. i got the ski for use at ski areas on powder days. i'm 5'11", 175lb. the 179's work ok, and the 14m sidecut is - amazingly - actually that. and the skis do carve pretty well. but for the tree skiing and bump skiing that a ski area powder day offers, i probably should have got the 169's. more maneuverability.

Kung Fujas vs. Rossignol S3? Any big differences between the two?

Responded on

The Kung Fujas are better ski because they have technology that the rossi's do not have. they are also a better ski for the park. I ski the 169 KF's mostly in the park and they butter like, crazy. the also should be mounted with the Marker Griffion with the schizo frantic system for when you ski powder.

Considering getting these as a present. 19 yr old guy, 6'1" tall about 160#s, good tely skier who would use these extensively in the park. He'll use Hammerheads on them. We live up in Park City.

Is 179 a good length?

Responded on

Depends on the skill level of the skier and the intended use, for the height and weight however i would go with the 179s.

Responded on

Id go with the 179s. Im almost exactly your specs, but 200lbs. I ride last yrs Kung Fus and they would be a great tele ski
