The K2 Lime Lite sits in their line as a freestyle focused snowboard that’ll rip open your own Pandora’s box of park riding. Built for slushy spring days, hot laps between the ropes, sidehit missions with the crew, and locking in new tricks all over the mountain. You’re the star of this show, it’s your turn to hog the limelight.
K2 have scaled the tech and trimmed the fat with the Lime Lite this season, to create a board that’s confidence inspiring, predictable and progression orientated, without breaking the bank. Mellow Biax laminates give an easy going feel, and won’t punish you for every little wobble or misstep when you’re dialing in new moves. True twin shape with blunted tip and tail are the go-to for versatility and balance while spinning, so you can throw those 3’s with aplomb.
“The rockered nose and tail ease it up a bit when you’re landing, helping put paid to nasty edge catches”
Starting off with an easygoing camrock profile, the Lime Lite gets the best of both worlds. The extra pop that comes with a camber board can’t be imitated, especially when it comes to starting your journey in the park. You’ll be thankful for it when you’re hopping up onto rails, boosting off lips and getting a little extra stability on the run in. The rockered nose and tail ease it up a bit when you’re landing, helping put paid to nasty edge catches, as an added bonus they also give a slightly smoother turn initiation on the hardpack.
While the Lime Lite can be taken all over the mountain, it really does make a name for itself with its freestyle chops. The mellow flex paired with the rocker zones in the nose and tail give you the ability to really lock into your presses, so stepping up your flatland and rail game is definitely on the cards. An easily repairable extruded base is a great option for the punishment you’ll be putting it through when you’re sessioning rail lines and getting boxes down pat.

When you start moving on to bigger features or a more aggressive riding style you might want to consider stepping up to the K2 Spellcaster for a bit of extra beef. But for those who are looking to expand their bag of tricks, boost their confidence and dip their toes into the world of jibbing then the Lime Lite is a great option at a banging price.
