Named for its intended use, the K2 Excavator specializes in digging deep trenches on groomers and displacing powder after the storm cycle. Built around a mid-wide outline with a dual-radius sidecut, the K2 Excavator snowboard caters to the advanced level rider looking for a directional snowboard to carve on groomers and float in the soft snow.
Built around a wider perimeter with a dual-radius sidecut, the Excavator is unisex in approach and caters to advanced riders, carving groomers, and floating in powder. The wider profile of the Excavator allows riders to size down around 5cm from their usual length without sacrificing performance. Thisextra width and 20mm taper benefits riders with larger feet, reducing toe drag on deep carves and long traverses. Inside, K2 uses their smooth-flexing S1 Core to keep it responsive and damp underfoot. Finally, they top it with their ICG™ 10 Biax Glass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers. This technology lets them keep the snowboard relaxed torsionally for easy turn initiation but helps to add snap over the entire length of the board. They’ve also added their pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ in the tail to allow for an energy boost into and out of turns and those spontaneous “Slow Sign” ollies. This tech is sandwiched between a wax-infused Sintered 4001 base, waxable and supremely durable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ top sheet.
