Named for its intended use, the K2 Excavator snowboard 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. The wider profile of the Excavator allows riders to size down ~5cm from their usual snowboard size and allows you to get all of the performance out of a longer board without the extra swing weight. This extra width and 20mm of taper benefits riders with wider feet, reducing any “booting out” on those deep corduroy carves and long traverses. The Excavator comes with the S1 core from K2, boasting a 5-year warranty!

Directional - Directional shape is the classic snowboard shape, designed to be ridden with a slightly longer nose than tail to concentrate pop in the tail while providing plenty of float in powder. A softer nose allows for a smoother roll into your carve, while a stiffer waist and tail provides better control through the turn and a stronger finish.
20mm Taper - Having a narrower tail than nose allows for the rear of the board to drop in powder which lifts the nose of the board above the fluff, reducing back leg fatigue on the best days of the season. This also allows for a tighter turn radius on a wider board, especially in narrow chutes and tight trees, as well as easier turns on the groomers.
Combination Camber - The response of camber with the float of rocker. The camber goes from the rear contact point to outside of your front foot where it transitions to rocker through the front contact point. Compressing the camber will accentuate the rocker by lifting the contact points allowing a more catch free turn and better float in the Pow.
S1 Core - ALL NEW! S1 Core is designed to be damp underfoot and stronger than hell. Tip-to-tail Bamboo stringers add snap, durability, and damping underfoot and are balanced out by lightweight paulownia in the midbody, tip, and tail help to reduce swingweight. Underfoot, Aspen and Bamboo are placed at 30° angles to increase strength, supercharge the edge-to-edge response, and increase the pressure distribution along the edge.
Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 Base - Fast and resilient base that absorbs wax easily for relentless glide and unrivaled durability. Waxed-Indused bases increase wax retention throughout the life of the board, which means less waxing and better sliding.
ICGTM 10 Carbon Glass - Increases pop, liveliness, and longevity of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity. The Carbon Power Forks are pre-cambered in the tail which helps to add snap to ollies, increase edge pressure, and give energy in and out of turns.
