Product details

The Instrument from K2 features a traditional camber line and utilizes their Volume Shift™ design to add just the right amount of width to the board for carving trenches on groomers without reducing responsiveness. They utilize their Tweekend™ design philosophy in the nose of the board to make floating through powder fields feel like a dream, and the Instrument’s ultra-durable Bambooyah™ Core is lightweight, sustainably harvested, and is backed by an industry leading five year warranty against breakage. Carbon Torque Forks extend out from the binding inserts to the edges of the snowboard for responsive power transfer for maneuvering through tricky terrain, and the core and all its tech is hugged in ICG™ 10 Biax Fiberglass that has been infused with tip-to-tail carbon stringers for predictable edge tracking and hold on hard snow. To top it off, they use a fast and resilient Sintered 4000 Base and on the K2 Instrument that soaks up wax and provides the multi-season durability that’ll have you playing the mountain like a fiddle.

**Downsize 3-5 cm from your regular size due to Volume Shift Shape**

Camber Profile 

Directional Camber Profile – Camber between the feet and a slight rocker in the tip gives you all of the power and energy of a cambered snowboard, but with a little extra float on those deep days.

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

Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Shape

Volume Shift™ – Volume is moved from the tips and tails of traditional snowboard shapes and placed it underfoot where it can be better controlled. This makes a wider, shorter design that maintains the same float and stability of a traditional board, but increases mobility and maneuverability. More slashing and better lines in the trees are now a reality.

Core

Bambooyah™ Core – Taking influence from skateboard manufacturing, Bambooyah™ Blended cores are stronger than hell and come packed complete with a five year warranty.

Laminates

ICG 10 Biaxial 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 Torque Forks – Adding carbon that extends from the inserts to the contact point allows for an extra responsive and stable ride.

Base

Sintered 4000 Base – Sintered 4000 base absorbs wax deep into the material for relentless glide and unrivaled durability.

Binding Compatibility
