Product Info

A no-nonsense freestyle thrasher, the K2 Playback Snowboard is an all new twin tip for those looking for all the fun with a tiny price tag. Flatline® Baseline makes it a great choice for the progressing rider and Hybritaper™ Construction brings the best of K2 durability and lightweight performance.

Product Details

Construction and Core

The K2 Playback Snowboard features a W1 wood core that is characterized by a single species of pure wood with proven flex, durability, and snap.

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.

Shape

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

Demanded by the K2 International Pro Team, K2 pioneered the Flatline® base profile. Preloaded, stable, and turn-ready, Flatline® is exactly as sounds - a flat base, and creating a supremely balanced, smooth ride for both aspiring and accomplished pros.

        This was my first board and I only had a chance to use it a couple of times this season. I just took it on the mountain, no parks. I had a lot of fun but I can't really diagnose the board because I'm a beginner! great price though and it got me started.

          This board is awesome. I had gotten a board for x-mas and it was way to big, went up the mountian once with the board and knew it was wrong. Got this board for my bday in feb. When I got on it it was so much smoother and did not grab anybodies old cuts, like the ones I rented after I knew my board was to big. I picked up the sport very fast and I do beieve this board will be great for me next year. I did my first bunny hop or ollie whatever its called in this sport, just this past weekend, and it was super easy cant wait to start jibbing and hitting the boxes. I cannot complain about the board or the service I got.

                  This snowboard was a gift for my son. He loves the way it looks, but hasn't been able to try it out yet as we have not had any snow yet
