They say: A new perspective on the play-anywhere vibe.
We say: K2 have designed this for girls who like shredding as opposed to cruising, and enjoy getting stuck in on pow days. The setback stance helps the nose stay out in deep snow, and the ‘All-terrain rocker’ profile keeps it playful.
Tester says: Smooth carving and speedy. Graphic seems a little bland, but I enjoyed this board a lot.
- 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.
