Lifted Snowboards Technology

Effortless Pop & Stability

Bringing a new level of Pop to K2's Baseline offering, Lifted is just what it sounds like. We took the flat between the feet foundation that all our boards are built on and simply raised it. This brings in the Pop of a cambered board while maintaining the even weighted contact points that provide the straight tracking and effortless precision of a flat board.

Lifted Snowboards Technology

Tweekend Snowboards Technology

ADDED STABILITY, FLOAT & LANDING POWER

A revolutionary tweek to the ends of our industry leading Baseline technology. By extending the Baseline rocker all the way out to the absolute ends of the board, new ride-able surface is unlocked, giving you a bigger, more stable platform to press, float and land on.

    Comments about K2 Snowboarding Slayblade Wide:

    great all around board (I'm not a park rat, so can't say that it would make for a sweet park board) but if you want fast, solid all mountain board, this is it.

    i'm 6' 195lbs sz.12 boots, and i love this board, i don't know why people are saying its not for big guys, i absolutely love this board.

      Comments about K2 Snowboarding Slayblade Wide:

      I had a change to try out the 2010 slayblade in 2009 as a demo. In the first run i was completly blownn a way by this board. It was my first zero camber experiance and did not expect anything from it, since my board had a lot of camber and was very stiff. But the response, the control at high speed was amazing. Even at higher speeds the board is inviting you to do tricks and giving you the convidence to do so.The comfort that the Harshmellow provide is perfect for a hard days riding and park hammering. When the Slayblade finaly came out it was over budget for me at the time, but this year I'm a proud owner of a Slayblade and the 2011 Slayblade is even better!!

        Comments about K2 Snowboarding Slayblade Wide:

        I am 6'4" 210lbs and I ride about 50+ days a year in the Lake Tahoe Area. My buddy Kyle at Porters recommended I try the Slay Blade and I am sure glad I did. I have a K2 Gyrator for powder and a few other boards including the Burton T6 and Never Summer Titan TX (all wide boards). I have been surfing for more than 35 years and the Gyrator was the first board I rode in powder that gave me the same feel as riding a wave. I found I could be much more centered in my stance and turn just like a surfboard. I tried the Slay Blade in firm conditions and really liked the zero camber. After a couple of days I stopped riding the T6 and the Titan TX. A few days later I rode the Slay Blade in deep powder and loved it. Its a little more work than the Gyrator but its got a little more punch too. In June we rode the NE Face of Mt. Lassen and there was no question in my mind about which board I would take... I love this board. Its my "go to" board for sure.

        Use the K2 Cinch Bindings but not with K2 Maysis boots because they will tear up the leather on the back of the boot in just a few trips. Great board and bindings though. Very fast and super responsive.

        It took one run for me to get used to the zero camber. But when I did, ohh man it was on! Im a big guy and the slayblade holds an edge like no other. It's poppy as hell and turns effortlessly. Seriously, this deck is the sure shot like old school hip hop.

        amazing board on the piste, park and the pipe. It dosn't stand up to big dings very well though. Very controlled and has a fast base, but is hard work on the back leg after prolonged use in deep powder, but still rides nice and smooth though.

        Comments about K2 Snowboarding Slayblade Wide:

        Please keep in mind that this review is to those who are interested in a Slayblade WIDE only (not the regular width) and weigh over 190lbs!

        I heard so much about this board that I was really excited to get on one and ride it since it has received a ton of press. I finally got a chance to demo one and.....

        First impression:
        The board was stable....the flatline felt new and fairly balanced but I had to re-train myself on how I popped Ollies - surprisingly as wet cardboard as this board felt to pop, the landing gear was surprisingly nice and had a lot of forgiveness if you didn't land spot on...which I found to be good but also a bit of a weird balance in the board.

        As I kept riding:
        To my disappointment - I found this board to lack some serious Liveliness, and way too soft especially for a wide board that is not intended to be a Park/Jib deck. If you like the snap that you would normally get from a camber board - the WIDE version of this board feels a bit like wet cardboard.

        The biggest issue with Wides is that they are often - just stiff decks that don't turn well - the common lame trend in boards for us Yetis.

        However:
        If you are a size 13 bearprint and weighed 175lbs, and liked a softer deck, you'd be fine
        - but if are a typical wide footed Yeti like myself 6'3" 215lbs, you will NOT like this deck.

        Bottom Line:
        Caddy cruiser: fast & Stable for groomers
        Flatline: on the wide version takes some getting used to....but I found that I got used to the Jib Rocker without re-thinking how to ride.
        Nice: if you like a soft board - but $$$$ for a wide park board (K2 has many other Wide park decks that would save you some $$)
        If you have ridden a Zeppelin Wide or a Titan and like the way it felt - this board is NOT for you!
        For guys above 190lbs - the wide version of the Slayblade is much too soft and lacks some serious OOMPH......

        I rode the Parkstar Wide after this deck at the Demo and found Master Parkstar Wide to be much more versatile that I ever expected....which made the Slayblade rate pretty low.

        Comments about K2 Snowboarding Slayblade Wide:

        This board is a dream come true. Super fast, super stable, extremely responsive, uber pop, good in pow or hardpack, and if you think it,it does it. I just don't think the hybrid cap construction is all that sturdy, wish it was side walled.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Make the slayblade with sidewalls. I feel as though you need to make a high performance big guy board, a tougher version of the slayblade.
