K2 garners plenty of (well deserved) attention for its Enjoyer series, with shapes like the Party Platter and CarveAir offering something a little out of the ordinary. However, their more conventional sticks shouldn’t be overlooked – least of all the K2 Subculture.
This one is built for everything, with a true twin outline and a slightly setback stance. Cruise down the groomers one minute, then spin off a park feature the next – all options are open. The Subculture features K2’s ‘Lifted’ profile; a mostly flat base is raised by rocker sections at each end. This delivers all the versatility you’d expect, but offers a little more pop and edge hold than a true flatty.
Under the hood there’s plenty of strong, lightweight carbon, present in both the ‘Ollie Bar’ insert and a lattice weaved into the fibreglass. Whether you’re wanting to scream down the piste or launch it skywards, it’s got you covered.
The K2 Subculture is definitely an all-mountain board, but will better suit those who like their freestyle. Both in the park and out of it, this is a definite trick pony – treat it as such and you won’t be sorry.
