K2: The Unofficial Wheels of Snow Day

Psyonix recently released Rocket League version 1.34 which fixes a number of issues and includes new items. This release adds a new crate called Nitro that has the following items:

  • Hexphase boost
  • Triplex Wheels
  • Neo-Thermal Boost
  • Mantis Import Body
  • K2 Wheels
  • Draco Wheels
  • Fireplug Wheels
  • An assortment of decals

Draco and K2 wheels have quickly become popular and colored variations are trading from anywhere between 2-150+ keys depending on the color. White Dracos are worth 150+ keys surpassing White Zombas while regular K2 wheels are trading for 1.5-2 keys. Two of the best things about the K2 wheels is that the default color is perfect for Snow Day and they’re affordable.

According to Wikipedia, K2 is a reference for Mount Godwin-Austen or Chhogori, the second highest mountain in the world at 28,251 feet above sea level. The mountain is located on the China-Pakistan border and its peak is covered in ice and snow. It’s also the second deadliest mountain for climbers with 300 successful summits and 77 fatalities.

Here is what the default K2 wheels look like in-game.

To see all the colored variations of the K2 wheels, check out the following video. Warning, the video has loud music.

If you’re interested in trading for these wheels, visit the RHL Discord Server and visit the #rl-trading channel. To see the latest prices for items, use the !prices command in the channel. This will generate links to trusted price sheets. While it’s not confirmed that Psyonix had the Snow Day community in mind when creating the K2 wheels, we like to think that they did. See you on the ICE!

While signing up you will be able to volunteer to be a captain. If there are more volunteer captains than the total number of teams, the captains will be picked at random from the pool of volunteers. If there are not enough volunteer captains, then the remaining number of captains needed will be chosen at random from the remainder of players. Captains will take turns picking their teammates in a “snake-style” (A, B, C, C, B, A) draft until all teams have 3 players each. Participating with friends is encouraged, however, there is no guarantee that you will be on the same team. The captain’s name will be entered into the Challonge bracket and will be used to represent their team. Voice channels will be created for each of the teams on our Discord server.

The event will last around 3-4 hours.
