2024 K2 Gateway Snowboard
An retro all-mountain freestyle snowboard, the K2 Gateway Snowboard has a classic outline that is packed full of tech they did NOT have in snowboarding’s early days. The Gateway features a core constructed of three different species of wood for smooth presses, fiberglass with tip to tail integrated carbon fiber stringers for snappy ollies, and a hard sintered base to take all of the abuse the resort or the streets can put on your ride.
BAP Core – K2 blended three species of renewable timber to assemble a core that's strong, lightweight, and designed to enhance dampening without the addition of other materials.
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.
