The hype machine has been working overtime on this one and K2
’s development team has delivered. The K2
Protohype Snowboard lets loose with the latest in a long line of top-end tech-focused boards. The Protohype is designed for the freestyle technician that demands the leading edge of technology in one super damp, clean design.
Construction and Core
The Bambooyah™ WH5 core is a skate style horizontally laminated bamboo core that is indestructible and sustainable. This is the best performing and lightest weight core in the line.
Harshmellow™ tech for a vibration force field that shields you from negative vibes, leg burn, and rough landings.
Ollie-Bar™ solves the concern over loss of pop when switching from camber to a flat base. It’s a carbon element that lives in the center of the board and is molded in place pre-loaded with camber.
Twin Hyper Progressive shape offers an infinite number of different radii that are blended together flawlessly from mellow in the tips, to more aggressive in the center. The result is a predictable feel that never hooks.
The Sintered Base is ultra-thin, static eliminating, lightweight, lower material usage, and the highest quality sintered base available.
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.
