The Curated Take
The K2 Passport is a great unisex freeride board for any high intermediate or advanced rider. This directional board is a bit wider than usual, so if anything, size down a few cm. It has a fairly stiff flex, and combined with the wide platform, the Passport will go over any uneven terrain and chunder with ease. It floats effortlessly in deep powder and makes big carves through open bowls well. This board wouldn’t be my first pick for weaving in and out of tight trees and moguls or riding park, as I felt like I was hopping through the moguls instead of turning. Being a stiff board, it also didn’t have quite as much pop as some boards when hitting kickers, but as a freeride & powder board, it’s a machine.
- Very stable in uneven terrain
- Floats well in powder
- Good edge hold carving
- Not great making tight turns through trees
- Not a good choice for the park
Like any good exploratory mission, don’t forget to take your Passport with you -- the key to accessing uncharted terrain. Built for the intermediate-to-expert level rider and shaped and sized to be unisex, the Passport is directional in every way but remains switch and fakie friendly. Slightly-wider-than-average waist width is met width 8mm of taper to ensure easy turning and float in deep snow. It’s complemented by an elongated rocker profile from the front insert pack, throughout the tip. A tighter sidecut radius in the tip and tail allows you to engage turns easily, while a longer radius between the feet makes the turn smooth and predictable progression. We’ve added a new blend of ICG 10™ Triax fiberglass to the Passport, adding tip-to-tail snap with precise edge performance. This glass layup wraps our lightweight A1 core - which features three species of sustainably harvested timber, and all of it sits atop a fast and durable Sintered 4000 base.
