Top 5 Women’s Boards: K2 Mix
This year, K2 introduced the Mix, a high-end, women’s all-mountain board. The features making it unique for women include its narrow waist (perfect for those who don’t have big, manly feet) and a progressive sidecut to make it turn with ease. K2′s new Hybritech sidewall construction¿a capped tip and tail, and sidewalls under the feet¿make the board lighter overall, but especially light on the ends, so you’ll have no trouble swinging it in circles off jumps and in the pipe.
The Mix is also on the stiffer end of the scale, giving it as much pop as an *NSYNC song. Of course, like all K2 boards, it has an ultra light core, and it has a sintered-4000 graphite base, carbon/Kevlar reinforcements, a progressive sidecut, and triaxial fiberglass for speed and stiffness¿damn.
This board was designed for aggressive girls who like to show up the boys.
Effective edge (cm): 118.4
Sidecut radius (m): 7.77
Waist width (cm): 23.6
