Beginner progression starts on the K2 First Lite Snowboard. The user-friendly features of the First Lite make carving and stopping much easier. Catching an edge which leads to falling is all too familiar for snowboarders learning to carve. With Catch Free Baseline™ technology aiming to mellow out edge contact with the snow, the chances of a crash are few and far between. The subtle Rocker underfoot will bolster your riding confidence. Rocker gives the snowboard a steady and predictable platform for quick-learning. The essentials for shred do not end there: the First Lite has a dual progressive shape made for consistent riding. The K2 First Lite Snowboard transcends rider's limits with progression from day 1 to day 1000.
Catch Free Baseline™ By bringing the contact points out of the snow, turns happen before the edge bites and - voila! - no, catch. This small amount of Rocker results in more confidence throughout the learning curve and unlocks faster progression on all terrain.
Flex Rating: 2 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) This snowboard is going to be 'soft' which is perfect for beginners who need a stable platform to balance on that won't be too hard to control. Soft snowboards are more forgiving and lower speeds to optimize progression.
W1 K2's standard core. This core is characterized by a single species of pure wood which offers flex, durability, and responsiveness.
Rhythm K2's Rhythm Core is uniquely shaped and designed to contour to women's riding style and finesse.
Biaxial The classic structure laminate, biaxial glass provides smooth all-purpose performance.
Hybritech™ An 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.

Die-cut Base Base color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.
Base Bevel: 3º The base bevel is the degree at which the base edge is tuned to for edge engagement. The more bevel the more rider input is necessary to angle the board for carving precision. With this slight base bevel a rider will experience a mellow ride for softer snow conditions and / or less edge-catch.
