The Cold Shoulder is a new addition for 2020, and boy oh boy has it come out swinging. Packed to the nips with tech and ready to roll, K2 have surely hit the jackpot with this one.
This is a board that wants to take the tired old ‘all mountain’ title, flip it on its head, sink a pint and shred straight out the door. A positive camber shape gives it a super long effective edge, and if you’re a rider who’s got a real yearning for turning then you’ll love getting low into carves on this badboy. Quick and responsive in and out of turns when you want it to be, it will hold its edge through the long, slow carves as well. This is a piste destroyer in a pretty package.

No fear if you’re heading off for some powder, they’ve added a slight taper to the board to keep the nose larger to float better. The inserts are also set back down the board to keep your weight more centred over the tail for when you’re dipping off the side into some fresh stuff.
Five carbon stringers run down the length of the board, outside each set of inserts. These add stability on hard pack and add more snap to the camber. The tip to tail stringers keep the boards torsional flex and allow you to pedal turn, and really bone out grabs. The women’s specific core is designed to work with your body and the particular mechanics of your riding.
The sintered base will ensure you’re leaving people in your dust, and will have you razzing around from first lifts to last.
