The incredible float in powder and the high manoeuvrability when carving are the strengths of the K2 Simple Pleasures. The Volume Shift™ 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 normal board.
If you're always on the hunt for untouched pow and deep carving turns, 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™ packs ollie power and tons of energy in and out of 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.
Volume Shift™ moves volume from the tips and tails of traditional snowboard shapes and placed it underfoot where it can be better controlled. This makes a wider, shorter design that maintains the same float and stability of a traditional board, but increases mobility and manoeuvrability. Hybritech™ is the most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing performance. Featuring sidewalls along the running surface that flows into the tip and tail, reducing swing-weight, optimizing turn initiation, and providing unrivalled durability. Taking influence from skateboard manufacturing, the Bambooyah™ Core is stronger than hell and comes packed with a complete with a five year warranty. Fibres of the Biax Glass are woven together at 0° and 90°, creating a more forgiving flex pattern. Fast, light, and strong. The Carbon Infused 5500 Base is the cream of the crop. By adding carbon to a sintered base, wax retention is increased for a faster, smoother ride.
