SNOWBOARDER’s 2011 Best of Test was full of surprises. With host resorts spanning the entire country–from Vermont to Washington and California to Michigan–the grid of on-snow demos kept us on the road, compiling all pertinent data as to determine which are the best snowboards for 2011. This is SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s 2011 Best of Test Women’s #1, the K2 Eco Pop. See the rest of the results for the top snowboards for 2011.
Hybrilight Eco Conscious Construction
What would be worse than El Niño every winter? No winter at all. That’s why K2 implemented their Eco-conscious construction in the Eco Pop, which reduces weight, uses less material, and is better for Mother Nature.
Reverse camber catered to all-terrain domination. From parks to pipes and all your backcountry adventures, K2’s rocker will keep you hyped in any conditions. Hey, it works for Gretchen, doesn’t it?
K2’s signature shock absorbing synthetic polymer helps minimize chatter and vibrations while riding at high speeds and cushions landings when you go a tad too fast, allowing you to ride longer and stronger.
