SEATTLE (January 30, 2013) – K2 Sports, a leading global manufacturer of outdoor sports gear, introduces three new models to their helmet and goggle line for winter 2013.

K2Dialed Fit™ and Full-Wrap Liner systems allow for easy one-turn adjustment, to comfortably fit a range of head sizes.

K2 PhotoKinetic Pro and Captura Pro Goggles – These new “best in class” men’s and women’s goggle designs take the coveted PhotoKinetic and Captura models to a whole new level. Using K2’s cutting edge technology to offer maximum field of vision, comfort, and precise helmet compatibility, these new Pro models feature a unique frame and strap graphics package that is inherently K2. Featuring Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision Octic or Tripic Mirror lenses with the advanced Ri-Pel® coating, the PhotoKinetic Pro and Captura Pro goggles exemplify performance optics.

Along with these new models, K2 has introduced upgrades across their entire helmet and goggle line. Headlined by a breadth of new colors and graphic designs, carried over from helmet to goggle, the overall collection is clean, fresh, and merchandises seamlessly. The addition of upgraded woven strap designs brings a new look to K2’s premium goggle models. K2’s helmets have a new, user-friendly on-cord controller for the Level 3 Baseline Audio System, featuring an easy-to-use volume control and on-the-go pause/play and answer/hang-up functions.

K2 maintains focused on delivering innovative style, performance, and compatibility throughout their helmet and goggle collection.For more information on K2 Helmets and Goggles, please visit http://www.k2skis.com.
