We delivered the board our team riders always wanted with the Antidote. Targeted at advanced-to-expert level riders whose style blurs the lines between freeride and freestyle. From resort charging to even the heaviest of freestyle features, the Antidote can handle whatever you throw at it.
This directional twin is strapped with technology, most notably, our patented SpaceGlass™ technology found in the tip and tail. Weight reduction and a more rigid material allows for quicker spins and better edge pressure at the contact points. Recess3D technology removes excess material from the board, minimizing swing weight and chatter while also adding visual depth to the top sheet.
The Antidote’s most defining feature is its 3D Base Contour. Just 3mm of contour with 3D shaping deflects snow, eases turn initiation and plows through chunder when things get hectic. Get on the Antidote wave and experience a more “catch free” ride.
K2 Antidote Features
3D CONTOUR TIP:
3D contour (spoon) that is gradually blended from the running surface deflects soft snow, eases turn initiation, while remaining predictable on hardpack. Available on both Antidote (3mm) and Special Effects (8mm) models.
By reducing the amount of materials in low-stress zones, we’re able to reduce the swingweight of your snowboard, while also reducing chatter in the tip and tail - all without sacrificing strength.
WAX INFUSED SINTERED 4001 BASE:
Built using the hardest and fastest Sintered base material on the market from Crown, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 holds wax longer than other Sintered bases for a smoother glide, longer.
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 help to reduce swingweight.
ICG™ 20 CARBON GLASS:
ICG™ 20 Triax Glass with Carbon - Integrating tip-to-tail carbon fiber stringers into fiberglass layups ensures a smooth power release in and out of turns while increasing the snowboard's pop, liveliness, and longevity without adding unnecessary rigidity.
An American made Aerospace grade precure fiberglass core insert used to provide unmatched structural performance at reduced weight. SpaceGlassTM inserts increase edge hold along contact points, reduce chatter, and provide unequaled durability.
A carbon fiber lay-up that aids in energy transfer and stability, speeding up edge-to-edge transitions and keeping you in control in times of need.
2 X 4 INSERT BINDING MOUNTING:
2x4 Insert packs allow for secure binding mounting while optimizing stance-width options. Time-tested, secure, and stable.
