K2 2024 Gateway Pop Men's Snowboard
The K2 Gateway Pop marries a classic directional twin share and a progressive Carbon Camber Profile, creating the ultimate for-everyone board that?s perfect for ripping down an open powder field, perfectly spaced tree runs or your favorite line the park.
K2 repurposed the design of their top-selling Gateway board and added camber in between the inserts for extra pop on takeoffs, and tons of stability while carving at high speeds, giving it a confidence-boosting, tried-and-true feeling. Its aspen core provides a snappy and playful feel with a mid-flex for quick edge changes through sketchy terrain and pressing on boxes and butters.
K2 used their ICG? 10 Biax Fiberglass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers for edge hold through choppy terrain. We?ve added an Extruded 2000 base to provide a smooth and durable feel that?ll have you leading your crew to the next secret stash.
The all-mountain Gateway POP packs premium tech into an affordable package for leveling up your skillset on any terrain the resort has to offer.
Aspen Core - A single species lightweight wood core that delivers smooth flex and lively rebound.
Triaxial Glass ? A glass laminate with diagonal layers that adds torsional stiffness for increased stability and improved edge hold. The fibers three layers are woven at 45, 45 and 0 degrees. This makes for a more responsive ride longitudinally and torsionally.
Carbon Torque Forks ? K2 keeps their carbon simple by placing it from the binding to the contact points of the board for a more responsive and stable ride.
Hybritech? ? Hybritech? is the most efficient way to make a snowboard without sacrificing one ounce of performance. Featuring sidewalls along the running surface that flow into the nose and tail, providing low swing-weight while extending the wood core all the way to the tip of the board for optimized turning initiation and durability.
Extruded 2000 Base - A low maintenance and smooth gliding base material that?s durable and easy to repair.
