The input that K2 gets from their riders drives the direction of their product line, and they went straight to the source to add a couple of pro-level tweaks to the team's favorite manifesto. The Manifest Team references a shape, construction, and camber profile hat the K2 Team trusts daily, and we've upgraded it with a faster-than-hell 5500 CarbonInfused Race Base and our all-new Bambooyah Pro Core backed by a 5-year warranty against breakages.
Rider Type: All Mountain / Freeride
Shape: Directional Twin
Flex: 7/10 - Stiff
Rocker: Camber / Rocker Tip and Tail
Ability Level: Advanced / Expert
Directional Combination Camber – 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.
Tweakened™ – Rocker is extended all the way out to the absolute ends of the board, unlocking new ride-able surface area for a bigger, more stable platform to press, float, and land on
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Bambooyah™ Pro Core – Equal parts performance, renewable, and durable, K2 has blended three different species of wood to create the most premium core in their offering. Bamboo and aspen are placed at 30° underfoot to supercharge the edge to edge response and increase the pressure distribution along the edge, lightweight paulownia is placed in the tip and tail to help reduce swing weight, and complementary tip to tail bamboo stringers help with snap, stability, and damping.
Carbon DarkWeb – A carbon fiber lay-up that aids in energy transfer and stability, speeding up edge-to-edge transitions and keeping you in control in times of need.
ICG 20 Triaxial Glass – Integrating tip-to-tail carbon fiber stringers into fiberglass layups ensures a smooth power release in and out of turns while increasing pop, liveliness, and longevity of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity.
Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base – Fast, light, and strong. Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered base is the cream of the crop. Adding carbon to a sintered base increases wax retention and decreases drag for a faster, smoother ride.
