K2 Believer 2011

January 31, 2011

By Scott Briggs:

Boston – The 2011 K2 Believer snowboard is turning out to be one of the best snowboards from the K2 lineup and it has only been around for 3 years.  For the riders who want to rip up the park all day long, then you need to give this board a shot as it combines the right mix of flex to make it a park machine.  But don’t let make you think this is just a park board, this snowboard has a ton of versatility and is great for the whole mouton.

What’s new with the 2011 K2 Believer?
The 2011 K2 Believer adds two new key features for 2011, the New Flatline profile and Hybritaper.  The FLATLINE technology is made to give you stability and versatility while delivering a ton of pop.  The Hybritaper Construction basically tapers out the core of the board at tip and tail and then blends it into the sidewalls for reduced swing weight for easier transitions.

What do I like about the K2 Believer:
The Flatline construction and the Hybritaper are great additions that anyone will love, but the first thing I need in a board is the twin tip shape.  The K2 Believer has a true twin tip shape and that coupled with the flatline construction give you a board that feels real sturdy and you will feel really comfortable making turning.  Overall I want a light board that transitions nicely from edge to edge and can handle riding both directions and the K2 Believer has all this and then some.

K2 Jibpan 2010

February 11, 2010

By Scott Briggs

The 2010 K2 Jibpan snowboard was created because they wanted to create a board that would just crush the park.   k2 says this is the ultimate park snowboard for the rider who has been hitting the WWW hard and wants to take the next step in the park.

The K2 Jibpan is a twin tip, high performance, jibbing machine that K2 loves to take to the next level.   One of the big differences you are going to see in the 2010 Jibpan from the 2009 is the addition of the K2 Jib Rocker.  Per K2 Snowboards the jib rocker is “JIB ROCKER allows for a loose, buttery feel while jibbing around the park or slaughtering the streets. Whether you’re pressing boxes or just playing around on the flats, JIB ROCKER has a forgiving no-catch feel that allows you to pull off even the most wild combinations. The flat mid-section allows you to lock into rails like you were on a skateboard.”.

Another feature of the K2 Jibpan that the riders are going to love is the use of Harshmellow.  Harshmellow is a thin layer of polymer added to the board to reduce that annoying vibration that comes when riding at fast speeds.

Overall park riders are going to love this board and have a ton of fun with it, myself I am more of an all mountain rider so this is not the best board for me.

Features of The K2 Jibpan Snowboard:

  • Harshmellow
  • Jib Tech Tip Tech
  • Twin Tip Hyper Progressive Shape
  • Wh4 Core
  • Triax Top, ICG 20 Base Glass
  • Carbon Matrix ll Torsion Fork
  • Sintered 4000 Base
  • New Jib Rocker Baseline
