A tried and true backbone of the Progression Series, the K2 Darkstar Wide Snowboard continues its reign as one of the top favorites for freestyle riders in the line. The true twin, Hyper Progressive construction that has won numerous Good Wood awards in the last three years is now being coupled with new Flatline Technology at the team’s request for 2011. Progressive, proven, powerful… the K2 Darkstar Snowboard remains an industry leader.
The K2 Darkstar Wide Snowboard is a true twin built for riders looking for a freestyle board they can slay through the park day in and day out.
Hybritaper™ tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce the swing weight. K2 blended the tips from a cap into a thin sandwich removing material where you don’t need it
WH2 wood core maintains durability at the lightest weight possible
True twin shape
Demanded by the International Pro Team and proven through multiple awards, K2 is the leader in development of this base profile. Preloaded, stable, and turn-ready, Flatline promotes a supremely balanced, smooth ride for both aspiring and accomplished pros
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
4000 Sintered base is the fastest natural base material available. Exceptionally durable, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.
