K2 Niseko Pleasures Snowboard
Inspired by one of the world’s ultimate powder and groomer destinations, the K2 Niseko Pleasures takes its name from the Niseko region of Hokkaido, Japan. Tweaked and tested-and-approved by long-time K2 Snowboarding Team Rider Yo Amagai, we’ve tapped into the locals' knowledge to develop the best possible tool for riding powder and groomers. The Niseko Pleasures is built for the advanced to expert snowboarder, and features our smooth-flexing Bambooyah™ Pro Core and biaxial fiberglass lay-up sandwiched between a hard, fast Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Race Base, waxable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ topsheet. The tip and tail shape, a wider-than-normal waist width, and 20mm of taper all work in perfect harmony to glide through powder and keep the nose well above the snow for easy navigation and maneuverability. The mid-wide shape allows riders to downsize ~5cm from their normal snowboard length without sacrificing float, and the Niseko Pleasures’ tapered directional shape helps the tail sink while easing turn initiation and exit for effortless edge changes on any terrain.
Directional Combination Camber Profile - 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.
Flex Rating – 6/10 (1=Soft-, 10=Stiff)
Volume Shift™ – Volume is moved from the tips and tails to underfoot for a wider, shorter design than traditional snowboard shapes, increasing mobility and maneuverability for better slashing and more lines through the trees.
Bambooyah™ Core – Taking influence from skateboard manufacturing, K2 Bambooyah™ Blended cores are strong as hell and come packed with a complete 5-year warranty.
Biaxial Glass – Smooth all-purpose performance with a no-frills design. Fibers are woven together at 0°. This makes for a more responsive ride longitudinally and torsionally.
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.
Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base – Fast, light and strong. The carbon infused sintered 5500 base is the cream of the crop. By adding carbon to a sintered base, K2 has increased the wax retention and decreased drag for a faster, smoother ride.
