Reviewer Alex

"Which board has the highest limits on every terrain? Push and enjoy it to the max everywhere. Adrenaline comes from sharp long carves till blinding amounts of fresh snow in the woods. All-mountain snowboards should be able to handle it all."

To all my reviews

 

Slayblade is flat as a knife


K2 Slayblade is literally a flat snowboard, no camber, no rocker. Although K2 also describes it as a flat board that comes close to the camber feeling because of the lift before the tip and tail. I miss the typical Camber quality though that gives the pop at the end of a carve turn. The build-in camber part in the middle is hard to see if you can at all. It gives less pop than a traditional camber snowboard. Maybe for the less extreme carvers on piste that is no problem as you get some playful quality in return. The Slayblade slides fine on its edges. K2 hasn't convinced me with the Slayblade. It should to be more comfortable. Well okay, to me that comes with one thing that is outstanding on the Slayblade, it is the dampening. That is not a deciding factor for a snowboard though as most boards nowadays are allright on damping. So comfortable in this case seems to me easier to ride in the way of less skills needed.

Continuous edge hold

Now that i reconsider my experiences on the Slayblade, I think it might suit the beginner plus. Someone who knows to keep on standing, knows how to turn a bit and would be a danger at high speed. The Slayblade is easy to get on its edges, so for making steps to carving it might be a good excercise. Once on the edge it holds quite fine. On the other hand, if you have your mind set on racecarving at speed, you'll grow out of this snowboard fairly quick I expect. Especially if you are a more aggressive rider. The freestylish minded will have enough range.

K2 about the Slayblade

"Tim Eddy pulls this all mountain snowboard from the rack each time he heads out for all-mountain destruction knowing it’ll come through with the stoke he’s looking for. With a Lifted™ baseline and Tweekend™ tip n tail the Slayblade snowboard combines the perfect amount of camber with an extended riding surface for ultimate layback slashes and full-on stomp ability off park or backcountry booters alike. Bambooyah™ blend core ensures its lasting life span.", says K2. Pretty easy and comfortable board, all-mountain and playful as it offers a bit of everything.

Related snowboards

Burton Custom: a camber snowboard that isn't too difficult, but has more pop.
Salomon Pulse: is a good affordable choice too. And further up the skills ladder you might want to consider the
Rossignol One Magtek: all-mountain board for those with some more experience.
