Product Info

Built to give you the confidence of a 10,000 man-army, the K2 Brigade Snowboard explores the entire mountain with Catch Free Rocker® Baseline for less effort and more shred at a value that’s unbeatable.

Product Details

Rocker Type

K2’s proven Catch Free Rocker® Baseline technology is easy going and confident, achieved by bringing the contact points out of the snow. This small amount of rocker combined with a softer flex results in quick edge grip and unlocks faster progression on all terrain.

Construction and Core

K2’s W1 core that is characterized by a single species of pure wood with proven flex, durability, and snap

Hybritech construction tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight. The K2 Brigade Snowboard features sidewall construction along the running surface that flows into the nose and tail providing low swing weight, optimized turn initiation, and durability.

Shape

True twin shape makes it easy to ride in any direction you want.

The Hyper progressive sidecut mellows out the transitions leaving you with the most predictable, best all-around riding board on the market - responsive enough for high-speed power carves but smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to park.

Flat base allows for smoother turning and quicker edge to edge response.

Base

The 2000 Extruded base is fast, durable, and easy to tune and repair.

    As a 46yr old beginner snowboarder, with a background in snow skiing, water skiing/knee-boarding, This board allowed a very fast transition from beginner to intermediate terrain. Very easy to control, whether morning powder or afternoon ice on Mt.Bachelor. Easy to ride, not exhausted after long runs. Cruises along smooth.

    East Coast rider (6 ft. 160 lbs. size 11 boot, using a 155 cm standard width board) on groomed runs (powder, packed, and ice - Western NY)- no park use, yet

    carves great, catch free :)

    Exactly as advertised, it is a great beginner-intermediate all mountain board
