K2 Special Effects

K2 Special Effects


Enhanced technology for those that demand the most out of their gear -- the K2 Special Effects is a soft snow specialist that can hold its own on groomers, hard pack, and long traverses out to the soft stuff.

We're unleashing an exciting new design in the shape of the Special Effects. The nose of the board features 8mm of contour from heel to toe, making it easier than ever before to plane out in deep snow while providing predictable turn initiation regardless of snow or terrain type. This contour helps to deflect snow and slush, eliminating drag and acting like a plow at the tip of your snowboard.

We harness the strength of our tri-wood blend Bambooyah Core and wrap it with our ICG 10 Carbon Fiberglass - featuring ten tip-to-tail carbon stringers--for a solid, damp, and stable feel. Our Volume Shift design philosophy means you can downsize the board 4-10cm from your usual board length without sacrificing float while increasing maneuverability.

Underfoot, the tough-as-nails Sintered 4000 is fast, durable, and holds wax much better than extruded base materials. Lastly, our Hybritech Sidewalls are the most durable sidewall construction on the market, meaning this pow hunter will remain in your quiver for years to come.
