K2 Proflex was in 1998! I cannot find any information from the early 90's!

I think though in the UK at least they were called off-road and had a model called pro-flex. After a while in the early 90's they became known as proflex, around 97ish they were in financial difficulties and were bought out by K2.

Reading through this though I'm guessing K2 had a range of bikes before the proflex buyout?

I never heard of any.........I always thought that K2 acquired Proflex to expand into the MTB market..........if it is Offroad Proflex ye are after, IDriders is the best place
