Forums Splitboards K2 Legend Viewing 11 posts - 1 through 11 (of 11 total) Author Posts September 19, 2005 at 6:17 pm #566813 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Anybody have an opinion about the K2 Legend? I’m seriously considering buying and splitting one. Here’s a little beta I’ve acquired: FREESTYLE POWDER Unmapped, uncharted, undisturbed, the freedom of the backcountry. The Legend board will take you anywhere you want to go. Whether you are hucking off a cliff or finishing the perfect turn, the Legend is devoted entirely to redefining the ultimate powder riding experience. We designed this board with the help of Canada’s premiere powder resort, Island Lake Lodge, and pro rider Brian Savard. “The slight shaping of the long nose and tail gives this board awesome floatation, combined with the twin tip, short running length and quick side cut. It has the ability to spin quickly off the lip and turn fast in the trees. I ride the Legend full time, in all conditions.” – Brian Sidecut: Hyper Progressive Stance: Centered and 1.5″ Set Back Const’n: Hybritech Core:Multi-Polar Base:4000 Sintered Glass:Triax Bottom/Precure Top – Carbon and Kevlar Matrix Steel:Standard September 19, 2005 at 9:21 pm #583123 Eric 60 Posts Those specs are more hype then specs. “Hyper Progressive” sidecut? “Standard” steel? K2 is one hell of a marketing jugernaught. Sorry, no feedback on the board, but that kind of rider endorsed dribble makes me laugh.

You need to send your Duran Duran board to the Hard Rock for display. 😀 November 3, 2005 at 4:56 pm #583125 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Right next to Jimi’s guitar. If only I could flow the way Jimi flowed. 😥 Hopefully I’ll have a new split by the end of the season. I’ve layed the necessary groundwork (grovelled). November 3, 2005 at 7:10 pm #583126 powderjunkie 1669 Posts end of season sounds a little late 😉 November 3, 2005 at 7:18 pm #583127 bcrider 4149 Posts Ecobrad has volunteered to help the site (and the site’s mission) out in a few areas so I’d like to take this opportunity to offer him the use of one of my splitboards. Eco, you can use my 165 Burton if you don’t mind using the Burton interface. Just come up and get it. 🙂 Volunteering for stuff has its perks. November 7, 2005 at 5:21 am #583128 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Dude–I just saw your post. I don’t know how I missed it the last few days. You the man. Heck yeah I’ll use it for a bit. I’ll be in touch. I haven’t volunteered for perks but I’ll take what I can get. Thanks dude. November 8, 2005 at 10:28 pm #583129 mtnrider 740 Posts hmmm…you’re clowning K2 for creating names for their stuff? Hyper Progressive sidecut means it has 3 radii, instead of the standard 1 radius on most boards. I suppose Burton’s “FLY II” wood core is cool though 🙄 November 9, 2005 at 12:08 pm #583130 Eric 60 Posts By no means hype free: http://www.donek.com/tech2.htm Much better job actually talking about the hows and whys. I have no problem with naming your process, but not in absence of actual specs. Whatever, they are just snowboards, right 😉 November 9, 2005 at 6:54 pm #583131 mtnrider 740 Posts HYPER PROGRESSIVE Fine-tuning the Dual Progressive sidecut by creating a more gentle tip and tail blend, combined with a tighter radius in the center for performance at low and high speeds. guess I’ll let you look up what they’re Dual Progressive sidecut is on your own. hmmm…that took me a couple seconds to go to K2’s website to see their definition. as far as the “Standard” Steel edges…that means they aren’t “STAINLESS” steel so they might rust easier. btw, donek boards are sweet. November 9, 2005 at 7:00 pm #583132 Eric 60 Posts ….they seem to have added actual numbers to their specs. That was what I really was interested in my original post. I was either looking at an earlier version of the site, or I missed it.:roll: Yup, Donek rocks my socks- Incline 164, mmmmmm…….. 8) Viewing 11 posts - 1 through 11 (of 11 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
