Before we talk tech, let’s talk about shape. This directional model from K2 features a traditional camber line and utilizes our Volume Shift™ design to add just the right amount of width to the board for laying trench on groomers without reducing responsiveness. A longer radius in the tip of the board eases turn initiation, while a deeper sidecut underfoot helps to rail hard arcing turns. The Instrument features a .75” inch (1.9 cm) set back and 20mm of taper to help it plane out in the deep stuff.
Now, about the tech. It all starts with a hard, fast Sintered 4000 base with a full 360 degree wrap steel edge. Inside, a sustainably sourced Bambooyah™ core is equal parts durable and damp underfoot. Carbon Torque Forks™ extend out from the binding inserts to the edges of the snowboard at 45º angles for responsive power-transfer while maneuvering through tricky terrain, and the entire package is wrapped in ICG™ 10 Biax Fiberglass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers for chatter reduction and to deliver stability when it gets a lil’ rowdy.
