continues to forge ahead with women's snowboarding progression. There's no longer a need for you to ride a smaller men's split; the K2
Northern Lite Snowboard is just for you. All Terrain Baseline™ and Tweekend™ give the rider more stomping room by extending the rocker to the end of the board, and make the Northern Lite an all-conditions, all-purpose tour board. If you want to get out into the backcountry, and you want to perform, this is the board for you.
All Terrain Baseline™ - Designed for use anywhere on the mountain, All Terrain Baseline allows for effortless turns on hardpack but also provides ample float in softer snow and crud. Designed as a directional Baseline, AT has a medium rise through the tip and a lower rise in the tail. It's the perfect setup for the multi-purpose rider.
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.
Splitboards are meant for the snowboarder who has already conquered the resort. Generally a stiffer ride, Splitboards are recommend for experts only.
Backside Hyper Progressive - An infinite number of different radius's are blended together flawlessly from mellow in the tips, to more aggressive in the center. The result is a super predictable feel that never hooks, is responsive at high speeds and smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to park.
Bambooyah™ Split - Bambooyah™ cores are skate style horizontally laminated bamboo cores that K2 challenges any rider to try and break. One bambooyah™ core per split.
UltraTech™ Construction - Designed specifically for the needs of backcountry splitboarder, UltraTech is extremely tough while still lightweight. Comprised of a molded edge that lands on a half height sidewall, this construction is optimized to take the abuse of using the board in "ski" mode while skinning.
Bottom - Biaxial Glass - The classic structure laminate, biax glass provides smooth, all-purpose performance.
Top - ICG 20 - Integrating carbon into the fiberglass reduces overall weight and creating a super smooth release of power while increasing pop and liveliness. Each level of ICG is tailored for the rider's size and their performance needs.
Ø Sintered - An ultra thin, lightweight, lower material usage, static eliminating base
Base Bevel - 1˚
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.
Z-Clip - K2's unique Z-Clips utilize the holes in the ski tips, avoid having to fold the skin over, reduce weight and prevent snow buildup under the tip while skinning. The result is better adhesion and more security.
Split Track - Infinite stance angles are possible with Split Track binding mounting.
