K2 Slayblade Wide Snowboard 2012

The K2 Slayblade Wide Snowboard is the attack deck of choice for team rider Eero Niemela. The 2012 model is built for even more critical forces and long term use with Bambooyah™ Blend core and the boosting power of Ollie Bar™.
Construction and Core
Bambooyah™ Blend WH4 Core pulls every trick from K2’s bag of core tech. It’s engineered to maintain durability at minimal weight.
Carbon Web™ stringers bring the pop and snap of carbon closer to your bindings for maximum ollies and control in every situation.
Ollie Bar™ inserts for the pop and snap of camber in a Flatline® board.
Harshmellow™ vibration force field for dampening that maximizes fun by decreasing negative vibes, leg burn, and rough landings.
Shape
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.
Base
The Sintered Base is ultra thin, static eliminating, lightweight, lowers material usage, and is 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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Freestyle
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain snowboards are designed for exploring the whole mountain. They are your go-to for a snowboard that will do anything. They feel at home on groomers, powder, park runs and almost anything in between. The vast majority of snowboarders choose all-mountain boards for their great versatility. If you’re just getting started or unsure of exactly what you need, an all-mountain snowboard is a great choice.
    Freestyle
    Freestyle or park snowboards tend to be a bit shorter in length and love terrain parks, rails, jibs, trash cans, tree trunks, riding switch (non-dominant foot forward), wall rides and more. Freestyle boards often feature a true twin shape, and are typically selected by those looking to ride the terrain park. A more versatile variant of a freestyle board is the all-mountain freestyle, which combines the versatility of an all mountain snowboard with the playfulness of a freestyle snowboard.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Flat
    Flat
    A flat profile is just as you’d expect – flat from near the tip of the board to near the tail. This shape splits the difference between camber and rocker, with more forgiving turnability than a fully cambered board and more precise edging capability than a fully rockered one
