Backside to frontside, powder to corduroy, you're going to dig the new K2 Excavator Snowboard. This all new addition to the K2 freeride lineup is powerful but forgiving, just the ticket for all-conditions fun in, well, all conditions. Pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks in the tail of the board provide added snap for ollies and precision coming out of turns, and a new multi-radius sidecut aids in turn initiation. Dig deep if you need to to buy this board, it's all you really need for any day on the mountain.
Directional Camber Profile – Camber between the feet and a slight rocker in the tip gives you all of the power and energy of a cambered snowboard, but with a little extra float on those deep days.

Bambooyah™ Pro Core – Equal parts performance, renewable, and durable, K2 has blended three different species of wood to create the most premium core in their offering. Bamboo and aspen are placed at 30° underfoot to supercharge the edge to edge response and increase the pressure distribution along the edge, lightweight paulownia is placed in the tip and tail to help reduce swing weight, and complementary tip to tail bamboo stringers help with snap, stability, and damping.
Carbon Power Fork™ – Equal parts snap and energy transfer, the ultra-lightweight Carbon Power Fork™ additives are dynamically flexing to optimize the performance in a snowboard. Carbon Power Fork™ additives are strategically shaped to offer greater response and energy return by increasing the width toward the tail – allowing for more material to be engaged, and more energy to be created the harder the tail is flexed.
ICG 10 Biaxial Glass – Integrating tip-to-tail carbon fiber stringers into fiberglass layups ensures a smooth power release in and out of turns while increasing pop, liveliness, and longevity of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity.
Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered Base – Fast, light, and strong. Carbon Infused 5500 Sintered base is the cream of the crop. Adding carbon to a sintered base increases wax retention and decreases drag for a faster, smoother ride.
