Jumped on a 58 this past week and it felt like I was riding it for years. Handled well on crunchy groomers in the am and cut through afternoon crud with ease and stability. Rode powder today and was very impressed. Great board for jibbing around the mountain, however, I have not taken it through the park since I ride my 56 Jibpan on park days. Great job K2...
I get to demo lots of boards working here at Backcountry, but I demoed this for two days and now I own one of my own. The flatline is super stable at speed, floats in the powder better than camber, is more forgiving than a super powerful cambered board but less squirrelly at speed than a really rockered board. I was between this and the Parkstar but for me only riding one board, this was the best do-it-all I could find. I wear a 10 boot and will never drag a toe on the regular width FYI.

just wonderin if anyone can comment on the stiffness of the slayblade. Is it much stiffer than the turbo dream? Could anyone compare it to a Custom, Custon X or Burton Jussi, im familiar with those boards so just tryin to see where the slayblade falls in???
rode this at the canyons, utah today and had a great time, rode it all over the mountain, has tons of pop, turns well, while not hooking anything, and even slid a box or two, it takes jumps at ease, and doesnt fight you on landings. It is more of an aggressive board, isnt made for the park unless you are a bigger guy that can muscle a press out of it, but all in all I didnt complain about the park performance. On another note, hidden stashes of powder are a favorite on this board, and the slayblade eats them up, floats well, stomps better, again tons of pop, and very lively in the powder, groomers as well, and handled some ice with no issues! Also good at dodging kids, and the base is super fast, and strong!!

what do u guys recommend the slayblade or the skate banana??? I ride mostly all mountain not in the park alot. 5'10" 170lb
well the skate banana is more of a park board so in this case the slayblade but you may want to check out the Lib Tech Travis Rice and the Lib Tech Dark Series, they are better for all mountain, and Lib Tech's magnatraction is amazing, cuts through snow and ice like butter and holds an edge better than any other board
if you wanna jib at all i wouldn't recommend the slayblade from what I've heard it doesn't work too well but for anything other than jibs this board will tear it up

Ripping up the Sunbaked Pow on a Slayblade 158

Hey. I'm 6 foot, 185 pounds with an 11 boot. Should I go with the 161 or the 163 wide? Also, how does the slayblade do in powder?
go with the 163 concidering your a big boy and if you love power, more float is better and yes they are pretty sweet in powder
Does anyone know how this board performs...
Does anyone know how this board performs in powder? I am looking for a board that will float well but will also bite well on hardpack and I'm between this and the K2 turbo dream, which is all-terrain rocker. I've never ridden a rocker, and my current board is an ultra-fast cambered Ride No. 4, so it would be a big change and I don't know how I'll like the rocker, so I'm inclined to go for the Slayblade. Then again, if the turbo dream is much better in the pow but still handles well on hardpack, that might be better. Also, I know the rocker is much better than camber in pow, but would the flatline be better too? HELP!!!
I rode this in some fresh snow last night - on wind loaded hills it was really deep so I got to make some powder turns. Flatline is better than camber in powder but the Turbo is better than this board. Still, I only have one board and this is great in the powder and powerful on the groomers (supposedly good in the park too but I couldn't tell you about that). I wouldn't buy this for a pow specific board but it still does great in the pow if you're looking for a one board quiver.
I'm in the same boat.. sort of.. I demoed a K2 TD in Park City pow recently and absolutely loved the board, it's really stable at high speeds and cuts through the snow pussies with ease. I dont' like the graphics though and I live on the east coast and was concerned with TDs ability to grip east coast ice. If you're going into the park, I'd def go for TD if you're all-mountain free ride, I'd go for SlayBlade. In saying all this, I still haven't made up my mind.. I want to demo a Slay before I buy.
Can someone give me an idea of how the...
Can someone give me an idea of how the flatline tech rides on the new K2 Slayblade?
I am 6.2" and weigh in at about 90Kg. I normally ride softer boards around the 162 mark (never shorter) riding a Rome agent at the moment but I am finding it a little unstable at speed.
Sorry, but age old question - Would I get away with a 161 or should I probably be looking at a 164 for all mountain?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
fast FAST FAST!! / get 161 board has long contact points
This is the board I will shred on this season. It better be ripping like the Zeppelin. I do not like noodles under my feet.
Zero Camber is Awesome
When I took this deck out last February I wasn't really expecting a whole lot, but it quickly became one of my favorite boards from the 2010 line up. The new Zero Camber, Flatline tech that K2 is putting into their decks feels so nice under foot.
Imagine that board that you've ridden for 3-4 seasons about 50 days each season. How great it felt when you had it broken in, but how bummed you were when it "died" and you realized it was time for a new deck. Now picture a board that starts out like that and stays like that, that is what the Flatline tech gives you right out of the package.
Oddly enough, I actually demoed this board right after trying out the new Burton Method. I was pretty shocked at how similar the shapes, sidewall construction and weight were on the two boards. Then I was really blown away with how much better the Slayblade handled the mountain. The base was fast, the edge hold was solid, the pop and responsive was top notch. The overall flex was about a 6 out of 10 but was playful when I wanted it to be and stiff and aggressive when I was pointing it down steeps. This is definitely a board you should check out for the 2010 season as you will not be dissappointed.
If your boot size is bigger than a 10.5, make sure you're checking out the wide version so you don't get toe drag. Also, I was lucky enough to have my review published in the Snowboarder Magazine September 2010 Buyer's Guide. Check the link below to check it out and feel free to hit me up with any questions.
