K2 Darkstar Wide Snowboard 2011

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.
Flex
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.
Construction and Core
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
Shape
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
Base
4000 Sintered base is the fastest natural base material available. Exceptionally durable, absorbs wax faster and retains wax longer.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    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: Flat
    Flat
    A flat profile is just as you’d expect – flat from near the tip of the board to near the tail. This shape splits the difference between camber and rocker, with more forgiving turnability than a fully cambered board and more precise edging capability than a fully rockered one
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Series: Progression
