They say: Timeless park performance.
We say: The Darkstar is a K2 classic – a mid-flexing board that’s easy enough for beginners but still challenges advanced riders. The flatbase helps it hold a sweet edge on hardpack, and keeps it poppy as anything in the park.
Tester says: Seemed like a great all rounder, nice and lively.

About K2

  • Building boards since: 1987
  • HQ: Seattle, WA, USA
  • History lesson: Founded as a ski company in 1961 by brothers Bill and Don Kirschner, K2 has been making snowboards longer than many board-specific brands. Despite this, it a while for K2 to live down its image as a commercially-driven ski-shark among snowboarding minnows. In the end though, the brand’s obvious commitment to snowboarding over the years, combined with its reputation for quality, has helped change even the most gnarled shredder’s minds.
  • Ridden by: People looking for a brand that’ll let them ride whatever and wherever they want without being laughed at by anyone. Technically good, if slightly anonymous riders.
