K2 Niseko Pleasures 2022 Snowboard
The Niseko Pleasures became one of the Boardworks customer favorites last year. This is an awesome board for ripping pow with some freestyle vibes. It has a directional shape, but it isn't so directional that you can't ride it switch. While it is a pow oriented shape, it also is a ton of fun on firm snow. You can totally rock this thing as a daily driver if you prefer a volume shifted more directional feel. Enjoy the aptly named Niseko Pleasures.
Manufacturer Description:Inspired by one of the world’s ultimate powder and groomer destinations, the K2 Niseko Pleasures takes its name from the Niseko region of Hokkaido, Japan. Tweaked and tested-and-approved by long-time K2 Snowboarding Team Rider Yo Amagai, we’ve tapped into the locals' knowledge to develop the best possible tool for riding powder and groomers.
The Niseko Pleasures is built for the advanced to expert snowboarder, and features our smooth-flexing Bambooyah™ Pro Core and biaxial fiberglass lay-up sandwiched between a hard, fast Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Race Base, waxable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ topsheet.
The tip and tail shape, a wider-than-normal waist width, and 20mm of taper all work in perfect harmony to glide through powder and keep the nose well above the snow for easy navigation and maneuverability.
The mid-wide shape allows riders to downsize ~5cm from their normal snowboard length without sacrificing float, and the Niseko Pleasures’ tapered directional shape helps the tail sink while easing turn initiation and exit for effortless edge changes on any terrain.

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.
Smooth all-purpose performance with a no-frills design. Fibers are woven together at 0° and 90°, creating a more forgiving flex pattern.
CARBON INFUSED 5500 SINTERED BASE
Fast, light, and strong. Our Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered base is the cream of the crop. By adding carbon to a sintered base, we’ve increased wax retention and decreased drag for a faster, smoother ride.
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.
