Product Details

Rocker Type

Jib Rocker™A versatile twin Rocker built to dominate the park. Just enough rise in the tip and tail to create a loose, buttery feel on all types of terrain. Contact points stay well off the snow until engaged – eliminating edge hook while maintaining fun pop.

NEW Tweekend™Tweaks the tip and tail of K2 boards by extending the rocker curvature all the way out to the ends, giving you more surface area to press, float and land on.

Sidecut

Twin geometry for equal ease riding forward or switch

Hyper Progressive SidecutA number of different radius' 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. Responsive at high speeds and smooth enough to butter your way from peak to peak.

Shape

Hybritaper™Takes the Hybritech™ Construction, and tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce the swing weight. They blend the tips from a cap into a think sandwich, removing material where you don't need it.

Construction

Hybritech™ ConstructionThe most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing one ounce of performance. Featuring sidewall along the running surface that flows into the nose and tail providing low swing-weight, optimized turn initiation, and durability.

Triax/BiaxTriaxial top glass with diagonal layers that stiffens the board torsionally. Giving improved edge hold and increased stability for those off-axis landings. Biaxial bottom glass providing a smooth, all-purpose performance.

ICG10 GlassIntegrating carbon into the bottom fiberglass, reducing overall weight and creating a super smooth release of power while increasing pop and liveliness.

Core

W2Three species of renewable wood are assembled to optimize strength, reduce weight, and enhance damping without the addition of other materials.

Base

4000 SinteredFastest natural base material available, exceptionally durable, and absorbs deeper and retains wax longer.

Additional Features
