K2 Anagram Review And Buying Advice

K2 Anagram 2011 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Anagram is a good beginner Twin shaped snowboard despite the fact it has an extruded base.  An extruded base is less expensive and more sturdy but a bit slower than the very common sintered base you see on most snowboards.  The one positive is about an extruded base is that it doesn’t require consistent waxing and that makes it good for beginners. Another issue with extruded bases is they are a bit more difficult to repair.  For 2011 the Anagram now has a very smooth rocker that makes for a catch free and stable ride.  K2 makes one of the better continuous rocker snowboards out there.  It doesn’t have the pop or carving ability that the 2010 camber had but it performs better in powder and is a little more jib friendly. The Anagram has built in more tech than your average snowboard for this price.  We’d like to see a little more edge hold but it’s still pretty good.  So you loose a little speed, which is ok if you are a beginner/intermediate rider,  but you get a board that has a good all around catch free performance.  This is perfect for those that want to learn a bit of everything in the park and mountain.

Advance Quickly with this board!

Ability Level: Intermediate • 
Riding Style: Regular, new Park rider • 
Days You Ride A Year: Approx. 8-10 times 

This K2 was the first board I purchased, and it was overall a great buy! I had ridden a handful of times before using a rented board and learned how to brake and leaf down the hill. On the K2 Anagram, I very quickly learned how to carve down the hill and fine the confidence to maintain a nice speed while having the ability to maneuver around and between obstacles.

I have snowboarded probably no more than 30 times and I can now ride the park, taking 8' high jumps and sliding on the flat platforms you often see on the mountain. The K2 is great at being catch free regardless of snow conditions. It is indeed a great beginner/intermediate board as you can try a bit of everything, I have gone down the diamond trails with easy breaking and even some quick carving with ease since I can tell you it's easy feeling the board and getting to know it, once you learn the basics of boarding, basically breaking and turning, whether that be leafing or the more advanced carving, the board does a great job at giving you feedback so that you can maintain the confidence of feeling in control of it, and not vise versa.

Pros if you're a beginner; the board does a good job at maintaining a consistent speed, it doesn't like going too fast, more like just cruising. Although the graphics might express otherwise to some, the K2 anagram is not an aggressive board at all, laid back is a better term.

Cons for intermediate riders; it's challenging gaining speed that's a bit faster than your comfort level on a slope thats not too steep. The board is either extremely quick and more difficult to control, or not quick enough and pretty easy to control (while advancing as an intermediate rider).

If you are really into trying some jumps than this board is great, its got an OK pop, and the catch free technology really allows you to learn how to nail your landings quickly.

Overall it's a great board, definitely can't go wrong if it's your first. I love mine.
