The K2 Gateway Pop Snowboard is a blast from the past sprinkled with a little magic dust from the present. The basic elements are ripped from the annals of all-mountain snowboarding 101: a twin shape with a setback stance paired with a directional rocker camber profile for pop, precision, and float. Add a snappy aspen wood core and a few carbon stringers, and you have a board ready to take on the world.
Directional Combination Camber Profile – The best of both worlds. By blending both traditional Camber and Rocker profiles, Combination Camber gives you all the benefits of both: the pop and precision of camber, and the float and predictability of rocker.
Flex Rating – 6 (1 Playful - 10 Precise)
Aspen Core – A single species of wood ensures consistency - giving riders the advantage of a proven flex, durability, and snap.
ICG™ 10 Biaxial Carbon Glass – Integrating tip-to-tail carbon fiber stringers into fiberglass layups ensures a smooth power release in and out of turns while increasing pop, liveliness, and longevity of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity.
Extruded 2000 Base – Delivers a consistent glide and is easy to maintain and repair.
