K2 High Lite - 2013


K2’s research and development team has been ramping its efforts up over the last few years and 2012/13 is the season that the hard work is starting to pay off. The High Lite is K2’s progressive backcountry freeride/ freestyle snowboard. The BS Shaping and All Terrain Rocker with Tweekends nose and tail kicks will provide all the float you will ever need for skimming above super deep snow while the almost twin shape might reduce the chance of cartwheeling after a switch powder landing (the emphasis is on the “might”). The tight sidecut radius will make picking lines through tight trees that little bit easier. The High Lite is an all-mountain board designed to fill the needs of advanced female snowboarders who want a board for blasting the whole mountain but that really comes alive hitting jumps in chin deep fresh.

Manufacturer's Description:


The 2012-2013 K2 High Lite snowboard answers the call for a women’s-specific all-terrain board that brings high end tech and innovation without losing the focus on good days and goodtimes.
