The park is your playground with the K2 Parkstar Snowboard. Whether you’re hot lapping, bonking lift towers, hucking it off kickers, or tranny finding in the backcountry, the Parkstar’s killer Hybritech™ construction will amp up your overall performance. The K2 Parkstar Snowboard features a Jib Rocker™ profile, Carbon Web™ for mass pop and snap ability, and Tweekend™ Integration that help eliminates "looping out" come backseat landings. Now be a good boy and earn your gold stars instead of demerits in the park and get wit it with the K2 Parkstar Snowboard.
Rocker Type
Jib Rocker™ - A versatile twin Rocker built to dominate the park. Just enough rise in the tip and tail to create a loose, buttery feel on all types of terrain. Contact points stay well off the snow until engaged – eliminating edge hook while maintaining fun pop.
NEW Tweekend™ - Tweaks the tip and tail of K2 boards by extending the rocker curvature all the way out to the ends, giving you more surface area to press, float and land on.
Shape
Hybritaper™ - Takes the Hybritech™ Construction, and tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce the swing weight. They blend the tips from a cap into a think sandwich, removing material where you don't need it.
Construction
Hybritech™ Construction - The most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing one ounce of performance. Featuring sidewall along the running surface that flows into the nose and tail providing low swing-weight, optimized turn initiation, and durability.
Triax/Biax - Triaxial top glass with diagonal layers that stiffens the board torsionally. Giving improved edge hold and increased stability for those off-axis landings. Biaxial bottom glass providing a smooth, all-purpose performance.
ICG10 Glass - Integrating carbon into the bottom fiberglass, reducing overall weight and creating a super smooth release of power while increasing pop and liveliness.
Sidecut
Twin geometry for equal ease riding forward or switch
Hyper Progressive Sidecut - A number of different radius' are blended together flawlessly from mellow in the tips, to more aggressive in the center. The result is a super predictable feel that never hooks. Responsive at high speeds and smooth enough to butter your way from peak to peak.
Core
W2 - Three species of renewable wood are assembled to optimize strength, reduce weight, and enhance damping without the addition of other materials.
Base
4000 Sintered - Fastest natural base material available, exceptionally durable, and absorbs deeper and retains wax longer.
Additional Features
Carbon Web™ I - Designed specifically to enhance K2's Baseline technology and brings the pop and snap of carbon closer to your bindings for max ollies and control in every situation.

Specs

  • Terrain: Freestyle
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is another variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered board and a flat board.
