From your first linked turns to your first lap through the park, the K2 Standard was built to keep you progressing and testing your limits. Why choose the K2 Standard as your all-mountain progression tool? The answer is clear--it simply makes turning easier. The shape of the Standard is a directional twin. This means the board feels the same whether riding left or right foot forward, so you can play while moving in either direction as you fine tune your skills. Next, it uses our Rocker Profile--featuring our Catch Free tune--that is flat in between the bindings and rockered just outside the bindings. This results in easy release and initiation of each and every toe or heelside turn. Easier release equals less falls, less time taking breaks, more time on the mountain, and faster progression. We built the Standard around a sustainably harvested all wood aspen core, which gives a forgiving flex while remaining playful for popping ollies or hitting your first jumps. Biaxially woven fiberglass hugs the aspen core and gives the board the edge hold needed to handle higher speed as you progress and explore new terrain. The package is rounded out with an Extruded 2000 base, forgiving, durable, and always ready for one more run.
