K2 Eco Pop Review And Buying Advice

K2 Eco Pop 2012 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Eco Pop is a evolved from a flatline (zero camber) directional twin that is made with more environmentally friendly materials to a Flat/Rocker Twin that they call All Terrain Rocker.

They have also made this board with environmentally friendly materials. What does this mean? We don’t know because no board yet is truly environmentally friendly but we like any steps towards it.  We have to agree that the all terrain rocker does a pretty good job in just about any condition and we enjoy this rocker tech better than any rocker teck in K2’s line.  All Terrain has more rocker than most of their flat/rocker designs that makes the Eco Pop float better in powder. The flat between the feet gives it similar stability to camber and makes it more forgiving than camber when attempting tricks. Despite the word Pop in its name it isn’t as poppy as other boards out there but we don’t think it’s lifeless either.  It’s more poppy than many flat/rocker boards but still not like a hybrid rocker or continuous rocker when it comes to generating your own air. It’s up to you to decide if you want stability between the feet or pop because it’s very hard to find both. If you are into carving this has a pretty good feel to it and the flat between the feet won’t wash out.  It’s also very stable at higher speeds, stable flat basing and stable one footing.  We feel this is a great board for an Intermediate to expert all mountain rider that likes speed, stability and control.  It has a very predictable smooth mostly mountain ride that many will like
