Product Info

Hot laps here, GETTT your hot laps here. The K2 Parkstar Wide 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. It is responsive enough for high-speed power carves but smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to the park.

Base

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

    Comments about K2 Parkstar Wide Snowboard 2012:

    Jibing at its finest. EXTREMELY tough base. wall slides to sandpainted rails this base has held up... the flex is good, and its fun to ride all over the mountain. Slightly unstable at high speeds but makes up for that with the pop near to a traditional camber board.
