K2 Freeride Ski Pole

IMG_0382 IMG_0383 IMG_0385The Pillar Design team has been working diligently with K2 Ski for sometime now and they just released the freeride ski grip that we assisted in developing with them. This complex 3D model has some mind blowing surface modeling. It is a 3 piece over-molded grip with some very intense texture treatments and complex ergonomic surfaces. We built a few different versions of this model using SolidWorks 2013. The asymmetrical shaping on this product was a definite challenge, but the product turned out very good and close to our initial concepts.
