Snowboards are fun in just about any conditions. They're even fun to sit and look at. Where they really excel, however, is in the steep and deep. The K2 High Lite Women's Snowboard is designed specifically to get the most out of days when the snow is soft and deep. This directional board, K2's flagship women's board, is just the thing for ripping in the white room, but it won't leave you stranded on the hardpack and won't try to kill you for riding switch, either.
The High Lite starts with K2's All Terrain baseline profile. This hybrid profile employs Tweekend rocker at the tip and tail with a flat area between the contact points to give the High Lite a loose buttery feel while maintaining responsive edge control and loads of pop. The directional BC shape uses K2's Hyper Progressive sidecut, with an infinite number of turn radii that progress from mellow at the tips to aggressive between the bindings. The result is a predictable feel with tons of control, but with mellow, non-hooking contact points at the tip and tail. It's K2's perfect blend of precision and forgiveness. Construction is K2's patented Hybritech, which uses sidewalls along the running surface that flow into the tip and tail for durability, optimized turn initiation, and reduced swing weight.
The Bambooyah Blend core is made with a blend of renewable woods and ultralight, ultra-strong bamboo reinforcements and Carbon Web II stringers. K2 finished off the recipe with the ultra-fast Ø sintered base.
