The incredible float in the powder and the high maneuverability when carving are the strengths of the new Simple Pleasures by K2. The VolumeShift™ technology provides a surf-like feel while the Directional Camber Baseline™ provides good edge hold even on hardpack and ice. This stubby Board packs so much float in such a small package, it's designed to be sized 5-7 cm shorter than your average powder board.
If you're always on the hunt for untouched pow fields and deep carving turns, then this is your board.
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.
The Directional Camber Baseline™ profile has an under-foot camber with a slight rocker area in the nose and in the tail. The float of the rockered nose improves manoeuvrability while the camber underfoot provides edge hold and response. The slightly rockered tail maintains power and stability and helps to keep the tail catch-free when initiating turns.
A medium 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.
At the Volume Shift™ design, K2 is shifting 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 graphite base is fast, durable and offers a good wax retention. The new Bambooyah Core is very durable, lightweight with enhanced dampening properties. Biax Fibreglass features a jib-friendly, torsionally soft flex and forgiving, park-friendly feel.
Coming off of over 50 years of experience, based in one of the snow densest spots on earth, K2 know a thing or two about snow sports. If you want serious innovation and world-class technology that will let you play your heart out and put a bight smile on your face, K2 is the company for you.
