The K2 Afterblack is a premium freestyle snowboard specializing in night missions, wall rides, and giant airs and promises to come through in the clutch to give you the confidence to give it one more go.
Designed for the intermediate-to-expert level snowboarder, the Afterblack is a mid-flexing true-twin with a Combination Camber Profile -with camber in between the bindings and rocker on the outside of the insiders -giving it a playful feel while still being able to hold speed and track straight into the next feature. Its tri-blend BAP Core blends bamboo, aspen, and paulownia woods to deliver snap and rebound while damping vibration on the harshest landings. Wrapping the core, tip-to-tail triaxially woven fiberglass and Carbon DarkWeb™ gives the Afterblack stability and edge control for popping off lips and sending big side hits. The fast and durable Sintered 4000 base soaks up wax to ensure you'll have enough speed to send you well past the knuckle and down to the sweet spot in the landing.
For the second year in a row, K2 leaned on Australian artist and designer Marcus Dixon to help graphically bring the Afterblack to life. A clean tip and tail mean plenty of real estate for sticker placement, and they've added a classic sequence layout between the feet, paying tribute to print magazines and ads of years past. A clean, muted, and logo-heavy base graphic provides an easy, clean aesthetic to the eyes.
