K2 Passport 2023 Snowboard

Boardworks Breakdown

SNAPPY. FLOATY. SHREDDY. This stick is your Passport to a good time all over the mountain. It'll guide you to a good time, whether you're ripping cords, mashing pow, dropping fatty pillows, or jumping groms in the park (sorry, freestyle terrain zone). This board is meant for people of all shapes and sizes and is happy going both ways. It's like that girl from high school you can't stop thinking about. And then one day, there she is. And you're right back there, it's senior year. But now you've both grown up, and this time you make your move. This time, you ride the Passport.


Manufacturer Description: 

With so many mountains to explore, the Passport is the key to accessing uncharted terrain. The all-new K2 Passport snowboard is an inspiring addition to the line and the Landscape Collection. 

Built for the intermediate-to-expert level rider and shaped and sized to be unisex, the Passport is directional in every way but remains switch and fakie friendly. Slightly-wider-than-average waist width is met width 8mm of taper to ensure easy turning and float in deep snow. It is complemented by an elongated rocker profile from the front insert pack throughout the tip. A tighter sidecut radius in the tip and tail allow you to engage turns easily, while a longer radius between the feet makes the turn smooth and predictable progression.

We’ve added a new blend of ICG 10™ Triax fiberglass to the Passport, adding tip-to-tail snap with precise edge performance. This glass layup wraps our lightweight A1 core - which features three species of sustainably harvested timber, and all of it sits atop a fast and durable Sintered 4000 base.

Technology

A1 CORE

 Lightweight, snappy, and durable, our ALL NEW! A1 Core is made from three renewable species of timber - Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia. Aspen-dominant to highlight the snap and response of this wood, we've combined it with Bamboo at 30 ° underfoot to increase strength, supercharge the edge-to-edge response, and increase the pressure distribution along the edge. We've also placed lightweight paulownia in the tip and tail to help to reduce swing weight.


ICG™ 10 GLASS WITH CARBON

Integrating Carbon Fiber stringers that run the length of the board into our fiberglass increases the snap of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity.


HYBRITECH™ SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION

 A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we can reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors.


SINTERED 4000 BASE

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