With a name like that, this board sets high expectations (and spoiler: it delivers). The K2 Excavator charges through chunder, relocates powder, and digs a trench on groomers like a John Deere 870 P-Tier. Everything about the Excavator is designed to maximize performance for high speed, confident carving and riding through powder. The first thing you'll notice about this board is the shape: directionally cambered, with tip and tail rise, a splash of additional tip rocker for extra pow float and smooth turn initiation, and a volume shift design. The extra wide platform gives extra float in powder while remaining manuverable. You can size down about 5cm on this board without losing any performance, and riders with larger feet benefit from less toe drag. The mad scientists at K2 built the internals to be incredibly damp--with their durable S1 Core, snappy and supportive fiberglass and carbon wrap, and the aptly named Carbon Power Fork. Two pre-cambered metal pieces tucked in the tail construction act like a turbo boost, adding extra energy, pop, and power in and out of turns. K2 even added a textured SnoPhobic top sheet, to shed snow and make sure nothing weighs you down on the deepest of deep days. For advanced riders looking to ride as hard as they want with no holding back, the K2 Excavator is the heavy machinery of your dreams. Looking for a volume shift but something more playful?
