K2 Warranty Policy

Thanks for your K2 purchase! K2 warranties are reserved for the original purchaser only. Make sure to keep a copy of your original purchase receipt or invoice (Proof of Purchase), in the unlikely event that you need warranty service. If the original Proof of Purchase cannot be provided on a warranty return, K2 will use the manufacturing date as the start of the warranty period.

Items will be repaired or replaced if, upon inspection at an authorized K2 Service Center by a K2 Warranty Service Technician, they are found to be defective in materials or workmanship.

In the event an exact product replacement (model, size, and/or color) is no longer available, we will replace your product with one of comparable performance, size, and value. This applies to replacement parts as well.
