Although built around a twin shape, this isn't your freestyle only twin. With extended nose and tail transitions and a mid-wide profile, not only do you get a balanced and controlled ride, but you also get great float in the pow and a stable and solid ride on the piste. So, if you're an experienced rider who is looking for a well-balanced freestyle inspired all terrain board, then the Bottle Rocket might just be the board for you.
Experienced riders who are looking for a performance board that blends freestyle control with stunning all-mountain versatility.
The Bottle Rocket is built around an innovative twin tip shape that has been designed to deliver the perfect balance of freestyle control with all-terrain versatility. Utilising a mid-wide chassis, with blunt profile tip and tail it provides all the freestyle control and balance that you could ever need. However, there's more going on here than meets the eye. Thanks to the extended transition zones at the contact points, the Bottle Rocket delivers a level of float in the pow on a par with a lot more powder specific boards. But let's not forget about that extra width. This not only aids float in the pow, but it also allows you rail the board in the carve without worrying about toe and heel drag.
To ensure that the Bottle Rocket delivers the perfect balance of freestyle feel and control with all-terrain versatility it utilises K2's Twin Rocker profile. This versatile profile adds progressive rocker zones at the contact points which transition smoothly into the nose and tail kicks. This gives the board a butterier ride, but more importantly, it tricks it into thinking it has a longer nose profile. So together with that extra width, you get far more lift and float in deep snow for a shorter overall length. Now through the centre of the board K2 utilise a flat profile, this works in harmony with the rocker zones to give a playful feel without compromising pop and stability.
When it comes to construction, the Bottle Rocket doesn't hold back. Heading this up is the Ollie Bar reinforced B.A.P core. Created from a combination of beech, aspen and paulownia it delivers the perfect balance of durability, performance and lightweight. However, to add additional pop through the length K2 integrate their Olli Bar technology into the core. This inserts a pre-bent bar through the centre of the core to dial in extra pop and power. Now to give the Bottle Rocket its responsive and dynamic overall ride, the complex structural layers are formed from the high-performance ICG 20 tri-ax Glass with Carbon. Integrating tip to tail carbon fibre stringers into the responsive glass delivers a poppy and powerful flex torsionally, but also adds more pop through the length. Additional carbon rods are then added running out from the inserts to the board's contact points. These power-up turn entry and exit while giving more pop off the tip and tail.
To give great glide in all conditions, the Bottle Rocket utilises a 4000 grade sintered base. This base is fast, durable and requires less waxing.
