Back and better than ever, the 2014 K2 Slayblade Snowboard dominated the all-mountain freestyle category for 4 years and this year it sees it's first major redesign. With full Hybritech™ construction for maximum performance and all-new Precision Lifted™ with Tweekend™ Baseline technology for pop and energy, the Slayblade is set to lead riders into the next level of all terrain freestyle creativity.
Precision Lifted™ Bringing a new level of Pop to K2's Baseline offering, Lifted is just what it sounds like. Taking the flat between the feet foundation that all K2's boards are built on and simply raised it. This brings in the Pop of cambered boards while maintaining the even weighted contact points that give you the straight tracking, effortless precision of a flat board.
Tweekend™ A revolutionary tweak to the ends of K2's industry leading Baseline technology. By extending the Baseline rocker all the way out to the absolute ends of the board, additional rideable surface is unlocked, giving you a bigger, more stable platform to press, float and land on.
Hyper Progressive An infinite number of different radii are blended together smoothly - from mellow in the tips, to more aggressive in the center. The result is a super predictable feel that never hooks and is responsive at high speeds yet smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to park.
BC Shaping Soft snow turns are different. Turns and control comes from not only carving but also pushing and displacing snow. A different turn requires a different shape. With a longer tip blend and delayed initiation of the sidecut, K2's new BC shaping eliminates the over steering that can come from traditional hard snow based design.
Bambooyah™ WH4 Bambooyah™ cores are skate style horizontally laminated bamboo cores that K2 challenges any rider to try and break. The WH4 core pulls every trick from K2's bag of core tech. With greater percentage of Honeykomb than the WH3 core, it's engineered to maintain durability at minimal weight.
Biaxial Glass The classic structural laminate, biax glass provides smooth, all-purpose performance.
ICG 20 Integrating carbon into the fiberglass reducing overall weight and creating a super smooth release of power while increasing pop and liveliness. Each level of ICG is tailored for the rider at hand and their performance needs.
Hybritech™ Hybritech™ is the most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing one ounce of performance. This construction features sidewall along the running surface that flows into the nose and tail to provide low swing-weight, optimized turn initiation and durability.
Ø Sintered An ultra thin, lightweight, lower material usage, static eliminating base
Ollie Bar™ The Ollie Bar is a totally new approach to adding pop to a snowboard. Molded in a pre-loaded, cambered shape it solves the problem of rocker boards not having the pop that camber boards have. Made with a secret lay up of carbon, Kevlar and glass layers, the Ollie Bar is positioned in the center of the board between the binding inserts.
Carbon Web™ II Designed specifically to enhance Baseline technology, K2's Carbon Web brings the pop and snap of carbon closer to your bindings for maximum ollies and control in every situation.
