Chopping 7-10cm from your standard snowboard size, the K2 Party Platter carries a hot new vision of freestyle right out the oven and onto the hill. Volume Shift™ tech delivers a surfy feel and better maneuverability than ever and a versatile Directional Rocker Baseline™ with extended Tweekend™ tip and tail make the perfect recipe for smooth predictability, park precision, and clean switch capability. Life is about trying new things, and the Party Platter is one new flavor that’s sure to become a classic.
For freestylers that are looking for something new, something that sparks creativity in every terrain, allow for unconventional freestyle moves and more fun than you could imagine.
Directional is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while still giving you plenty of float, flow, and control to rip any terrain or condition. A tapered shape means the nose is wider than the tail, promoting smooth turn entry and exit, stability at speed, and enhanced deep snow flotation. The greater amount of volume in front of you will allow for effortless turning in deep or soft snow and increase the float of your board tremendously. This board shape also features a classic kick tail. With that, creative switch tricks are no problem.
A Directional Rocker Baseline™, so just a flat camber profile between the feet means stability, better balance, and continuous edge control. The tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for the catch-free, loose feeling you’d expect from rocker. This rocker allows for effortless turns on hardpack but also provides ample float in softer snow and crud. Tweekend™ is a revolutionary tweak to the ends of the baseline. By extending the Baseline all the way out to the very end of the board, a greater rideable surface is unlocked, giving you a bigger, more stable platform to press, float and land on.
A medium soft flex fits perfectly to the design of this board, stiff enough to keep you in control yet soft enough to allow for a fun and playful ride.
With the Volume Shift™ design, K2 shifts the volume around your feet, so the board glides and interacts with the snow in brand new ways. Hybritech™ is the most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing an ounce of performance. Featuring sidewalls along the running surface and an extended wood core all the way to the tip of the board. The sintered base is fast, durable and easy to repair. At the BAP core, three renewable wood are assembled to optimise strength, reduce weight, and enhance dampening without the addition of other materials. The ollie bar is positioned in the centre of the board between the binding inserts. Made with a secret layup of carbon, Kevlar and urethane layers, it enhances the pop of the board significantly. Biax Fibreglass features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and forgiving, park-friendly feel.
