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.
