TEAM DRIVEN FREESTYLE.
The new Afterblack is the team driven charger in the K2 range. Aimed squarely at experienced freestyle riders, this high-performance board delivers utterly stunning performance wherever you take it. Whether lapping the park, hitting side hits or spinning off booters, it takes it all easily in its stride. Built around a balanced twin tip shape, it combines a soft and playful rockered tip and tail with a lively and responsive camber between the feet. This allows the board to be flexible and responsive for riding boxes and rails while still being stable and poppy for when you want to push it a bit harder. All in all, the Afterblack delivers the perfect ride for anyone that wants to take their freestyle riding seriously, but who still wants a performance board that they can blast around the mountain.
Freestyle riders who are looking for a high-performance board that is at mainly at home in the park but which can still blow your mind when out and about.
The Afterblack is built around an advanced fully balanced twin-tip shape. This ensures that no matter if you're riding forwards or backwards you'll get the same overall feeling. To give the rider increased control, it features a low-profile tip and tail. This is specially shaped to reduce swing weight at the tips but to also trick the board into thinking that the nose is longer than it is, helping increase lift and float on those days when powder calls.
To ensure that the Afterblack delivers the perfect balance of freestyle feel and control with all-terrain versatility, it utilises K2's Twin Combination Camber profile. This versatile profile adds rocker zones at the contact points which transition into a steeper nose and tail kicks. This gives the board a park inspired ride by lowering the swing weight and helping absorb steeper transitions. Now through the centre of the board, K2 utilise a traditional camber profile. This helps power up the sidecut, but more importantly, it adds stability to the board making it easier to stomp hard landings.
Internally, the Afterblack's high-end construction is headed up with the advanced B.A.P core. Created from a combination of beech, aspen and paulownia it delivers the perfect balance of durability, performance and light weight. Now to give the Afterblack its responsive and dynamic overall ride, the complex structural layers are formed torsionally responsive tri-ax Glass. These are reinforced with K2's Carbon Darkweb technology which adds carbon fibre cross bracing centred on the front and back inserts. This unique construction beefs up torsional flex even further, creating one of the most stable, solid and powerful freestyle boards on the market.
To give great glide in all conditions, the Afterback utilises a 4000-grade sintered base. This base is fast, durable and requires less waxing.
