PARTY PLATTER 142
Many “shaped” snowboards are built to zero in on one specific riding style - this is NOT one of those snowboards. The K2 Party Platter is purpose-built to be a daily driver for slashing berms, laying down carves, and plowing your way through thigh-deep powder.
To give the directional, mid-flexing Party Platter a versatile and playful feel, we built it on a Combination Camber profile that drops camber in between the feet and mellow rocker just outside the bindings. This provides stability at higher speeds and allows the edges to track and hold while carving, retaining an easy pivoting feel for smooth ground tricks. Our Volume Shift™ design minimizes toe and heel drag and provides float in deep snow. The BAP Core is built from sustainably harvested timber and gives the board a smooth and even flex while absorbing vibration and chatter for control in all conditions. Ride's Carbon Ollie Bar™ is strategically placed between the inserts, giving the Party Platter big-time snap and rebound for launching side hits. Biaxially woven fiberglass wraps the core, delivering finely tuned edge hold depending on how and where pressure is applied to the board. The icing on the cake is our Sintered 4000 base, composed of a supremely tough and durable material that soaks up wax like a sponge and gives you the speed you want for lacing pow turns or lining up the big jump in the park.
Profile: Combination Camber
Response: Medium Responsive
- ICG™ 10 Carbon Glass: NEW! Triax Glass with 10 Integrated Carbon Stringers - Increases pop, liveliness, and longevity of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity.
- A1 Core: Lightweight, Snappy, and Durable
- Sintered 4000 Base: Absorbs wax easily for relentless glide and unrivaled durability.
Profile: Twin Combination Camber
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.
Shape: Directional Tapered
Directional tapered boards excel in a pure mountain environment. The tail sinks in pow for better float and quicker turns.
A directional shape with a longer, softer nose and a shorter, stiffer tail get taken to the next level with a tapering design—which sees a wider nose tapering into a narrower tail. The advantages are two-fold: this shape not only sees mega-enhanced floatation with a surfy feel in deep powder, it also creates a faster turning snowboard which is noticeably more nimble and great for tree riding.
Flex: 6 (Scale 1 - 10)
Versatility at it's finest. From the park to the peak and anywhere in between.
K2's Sintered 4000 base absorbs wax deep into the material for relentless glide and unrivaled durability.
