Product Info

Hot laps here, GETTT your hot laps here. The K2 Parkstar Snowboard is back again for 2012 with the Jib Rocker® Baseline freestyle feel and pop that earned it a Good Wood award. New is the addition of Carbon Web™ bringing super pop while the Hybritaper™ makes it light and quick.

Product Details

Construction and Core

The W2 Core is three species of renewable wood that are assembled to optimize strength, reduce weight, and enhance damping without the addition of other materials.

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.

Carbon Web enhances Jib Rocker® Baseline technology by bringing the pop and snap of carbon closer to your bindings for maximum ollie power and control in every situation.

Shape

True twin shape

Jib Rocker® Baseline is 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

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

The 4000 Sintered base is the fastest natural base material available. It is Eexceptionally durable, absorbs wax faster, and retains wax longer.

Comments about K2 Parkstar Snowboard 2012:

I have been riding k2 for many years and i am very happy with the product. I have noticed the prices have gone up and up and up. I do understand if i want a pro feel i have to spend the money. I do not see the point in having to perhaps finance a board in the future just because i am an advanced rider.

      Comments about K2 Parkstar Snowboard 2012:

      I bought this board because I wanted a center mounted board that would allow me to work on riding switch. This board was exactly what I wanted, and exactly what I expected. My favorite thing about riding this board was the surfy feel in decent snow. The more you press into it the more it gives back.
      The Parkstar doesn't grip/hold a line on ice as well as my cambered Burton, but was still poised and steady enough to handle the task once I got used to riding it.
      Evo has the best prices of anyone for snowboarding gear. I was looking for two months before I finally bought this board, and I got it at an awesome price!! Thanks Evo, you definitely did give me mad pow disease! :)

        Comments about K2 Parkstar Snowboard 2012:

        I was psyched to get out on this board but once I did it was like taking a step back 5 years....the jib rocker technology was supposed to be awesome for jibbing....its not...thing has awesome pop and tears up jumps....but I would stay out of the rest of the park with this board. If you want a high quality board just go with a lib tech, gnu, or never summer.- Snowboards that will last longer than you that have industry leading technologies. Do yourself a favor and get one of those boards...you'll thank me later. ;)
