Hidden from the world of energy drink commercials and corporate-sponsored contests, there is the rider who snowboards every day for no one else and no other reason than for the love. The K2 Subculture Wide Snowboard was built with that guy in mind. Not concerned with shiny graphics or fancy gimmicks, the Subculture is made to slash through pow, charge down groomers, and carve sketchy slopes into pieces without a camera or a helicopter in sight. The Subculture begins with K2's Precision Baseline profile. This hybrid camber profile uses a flat, lifted center section; the result is tons of edge control without the bite of camber. The twin shape uses K2's Twin Hyper Progressive sidecut, with an infinite number of turn radii that progress from mellow at the tips to aggressive between the bindings. The result is a predictable feel with tons of control, but with mellow, non-hooking contact points at the tip and tail. It's K2's perfect blend of precision and forgiveness. Construction is K2's patented Hybritech, which uses sidewalls along the running surface that flow into the tip and tail for durability, optimized turn initiation, and reduced swing weight. The W2 core is made up of three types of renewable wood, strategically laid out to increase strength, reduce weight, and dampen. K2 added Carbon Web stringers for additional stiffness, and finished off the recipe with the ultra-fast 4000 sintered base. A wider waist allows riders with bigger boots to carve hard without worrying about dragging their toes.
