K2 Special Effects 2023 Snowboard
This is the stiff, flat camber, volume-shifted wideboy, swallow tail powder boat you want for those EPICALLY deep days.
Manufacturer Description:With a crazy setback, super cut-in swallowtail, and mega-fat nose, the K2 Special Effects Snowboard is the board you reach for when it gets deep. This volume shifted surfboard lives to slash windlips and bounce through pillows. It's rockered and flat through the tail to keep you planing over everything, plus it's backed up with an extra springy bamboo core so you get tons of energy out of every bottomless turn.

BAMBOOYAH™ BLENDED CORES
Taking influence from skateboard manufacturing, our Bambooyah™ Blended cores are stronger than hell and come packed complete with a five-year warranty.
ICG™ 10 Biaxial Carbon 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.
Sintered 4000 Base
The sintered 4000 base absorbs wax deep into the material for relentless glide and unrivaled durability.
We’ve moved volume 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.
3D Nose Contour
3D contour (spoon) that is gradually blended from the running sur-face deflects soft snow, eases turn initiation, while remaining predictable on hardpack.
