  • "Great Board"

    , Colorado Springs,CO
    Pros: Good Edge Hold,Great Value,Great Graphics,Smooth Carves,Durable Construction,Fast Base,Lots of Pop, Cons: none

    Amazing board for the price. Seemed to be a little stiffer than I thought it would be but still has good flex and pop. It did really well in powder also. Overall it looks great and performs very well in many different areas.

  • "Strong and tough!"

    , Casper,WY
    Pros: Good Edge Hold,Responsive Flex,Great Value,Lots of Pop,Buttery, Cons:

    Base is strong and tough for jumps and rails, whatever. I like this board a lot and it has a nice snappy feel. I like to undersize so I can do a lot of jibbing.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: You're right, the K2 Playback Snowboard is great for pressing. The Playback has a pretty average sized sidecut radius that is perfect for large cross over and small cross under carves. Dec 11, 2013

Austin P asked: How does this board perform in the just beginning to intermediate stages for a boarder? How much of a step is it above the K2 Brigade? I'm debating between those two boards right now. Sep 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: The only major difference between the K2 Playback Snowboard and the K2 Brigade Snowboard is the profile shape. The Brigade has a Catch Free profile with a slight rocker rise near the contact points and the Playback features the Flatline profile which is completely flat. I'd go with the K2 Brigade, it's a little cheaper but pretty much the exact same thing. Sep 23, 2013

A shopper asked: size 11 boot and want a 158cm board. should I buy wide? Dec 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: It's suggested to get a board with a 25.8cm waist width or wider for size 11+ boots. The 158cm K2 Playback Snowboard has a 25.5cm waist width, you could get away with it if your boots feature shrinkage footprint reduction technology. Dec 16, 2013

Braxton B asked: Do you need to wax this board or do anything to it? Jan 7, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
Joshua H: Yes, all snowboards (and skis) need to be waxed at least once every season. You may choose to tune the edges for sharper carving as well. Most resorts or any rental shop can do this for you. The new board's base is actually quite rough, compared to a well cared-for used board. New boards need wax before the first use. Jan 7, 2014
Reply to Joshua Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Kellie P: Not at all. Took this thing out several times already and i fly past my buddies. Its super fast. I would wax after the season or about every 7-8 rides Jan 13, 2014
Reply to Kellie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Justin S: It comes waxed. But you'll want to after 4 or 5 times out. If you're going to freestyle with it you'll need to detune it. Jan 7, 2014
Reply to Justin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Matt GStaff: Hello Braxton,

The K2 Playback Snowboard comes factory waxed, but you should wax it every 4/5 times you ride.
