Ideal for the young grom who wants to get better in the park and have a high-quality, freestyle-focused deck to take it to the next level. Soft 3/10 flex and rocker in the tip and tail make it ideal for jibbing and park playfulness. Enough capability for floating in deeper snow and cruising all-mountain, but it shines in freestyle.

K2 Wildheart Women's Snowboard · 2022
A versatile performer, don't get fooled by its powder friendly shape cause it rips just as hard on groomers as it does through the trees and into those perfect powder fields. With a tapered shape and wider platform, ride this board down a few cms cause thats what its built for. Giving you the nimbleness you need in tight spots but the hard charging capabilities of a true free ride board.
Directional freeride and all-mountain ripper. This board has a directional shape and floaty nose for excellent float in powder. It has a camber profile under the feet with a floaty rocker nose. Take this board all over the mountain, stay afloat in the powder and keep it nimble through the trees. 7/10 flex keeps you stable at speed.
K2 Excavator Snowboard · 2022
The excavator is perfect for an advanced rider looking for a directional snowboard to lay down fast carves on groomers and float in the deep stuff. The wider profile allows you to downsize from your usual size and gives you all the performance of a larger board without the extra swing weight.
Getting into pow fields and side hits and when it's sunshine and the runs are freshly done, it goes fast and holds an edge when carving and won't slouch on you.
K2 World Peace Wide Snowboard · 152W cm
Easy going all-mountain/freestyle board with a soft-medium forgiving flex. Great for presses and butters. This camber board offers plenty of edge hold under foot with rocker at the tip and tail for smooth turn initiation. This board is great for all ability levels, from the beginner looking to practice riding on edge, to the advanced freestyler looking to take their jibbing to the next level.
K2 Cool Bean Snowboard · 2021
An absolute party in a small package. Meant to ride the deep stuff and excels in the backcountry. A big rockered nose keeps you afloat when in the deep stuff and the swallow tail design cuts through snow effortlessly. Meant to size down around 5 to 8cm from your normal board size, this short and squatty deck is ready to rip.
No turning back. Unstoppable lines in deep powder. Surfy, quick-turning response works amazingly thru tight glades. Does the trick on groomers / slushy conditions but this is the board you pull out for heavy pow days. The wide nose and swallow tail of the Cool Bean gives a whole new feeling to opening it up in alpine bowls, cruising corduroy, or picking lines through the pines. This is the widest board in our collection, meaning toe and heel drag are essentially eliminated for setting rail and trenching out the groomers regardless of boot size.
K2 Instrument Snowboard · 2022
This is a true all mountain/powder machine that can really charge down any part of the hill! The K2 Instrument is a true weapon for turning the entire mountain into a playground. Camber in the center of the board will make this board really want to ride edge to edge, longer rocker section in the nose will keep you floating in the white stuff.
This board does it all, carves , pops well, floats in the pow, and is forgiving. One of my favorite boards of the season for sure!
Directional shape more of a tree/powder more freeride specific board than the others if this is something more up your alley.
K2 Geometric Snowboard · 2022
True twin and camber shape make this a classic all-mountain and freestyle focused board, great for any new or intermediate level riders. A softer flex, with rockered tip and tail provide a nice playful feel, while the camber beneath the feet provides satisfying pop and response through ripping those carves! Definitely an all-around solid board, great for riding switch, progressing, gaining confidence, and having an amazing time out on the hill every day!
A playful beginner to intermediate freestyle board. Mellow camber zone which engages and locks into turns. Rocker to the tip and tail, fun for buttering around and doesn't catch an edge very easily. True twin, great for riding in both directions. Soft flexing.
K2 Mini Turbo Snowboard · 2023
A lightweight core with a forgiving flex and a "catch-free" rocker allows a rider to really get on edge without the stress of those frontside or backside whippers. Great board for a beginner but can be taken up a notch as the young rider progresses.
K2 Outline Women's Snowboard · 2022
K2's number one women's freeride/all-mountain snowboard! Comes in a directional shape with setback camber towards the tail, keeping things super responsive and poppy when the going gets steep and deep, but also has some rocker at the nose to provide plenty of float, especially on low angle runs when it's a little easier to submarine with its stiffer flex being a 8/10. Has a super durable and very resistant Sintered 4000 base so speed will never be an issue, and that rocky chute you've been eyeing all season that looks a little dicey won't phase your base one bit. Need that big mountain machine? Or just wanna go really fast with something a little stiffer? Check the Outline!
K2 Snowboards Flagship Freeride model designed for the hardest charging lady rider! All mountain/powder oriented, this directional snowboard has camber in the center and will feel on the stiffer end but is ideal for fast riding. 8/10 flex will eat up any underfoot chatter while riding fast!
K2 Marauder Splitboard Snowboard Package · 2023
A good option for someone who wants to get farther out into those untouched territories. A softer flex board makes it easy to control in any circumstance combined with a slight rocker in the tip for extra float and camber under the feet for extra pop. Sintered base will make sure you're spending less time off the slopes repairing any damages to the board. The skins included with the board are 100% mohair and are also pre-trimmed to fit the board.
K2 Lil Kat Snowboard · 2023
Super playful design with a soft flex and catch-free rocker design brings the contact points out of the snow for easier linking of turns. This is a board for the beginner rider with a flat base and rocker profile on the tip and tail to reduce catching edges.
K2 Niseko Pleasures Snowboard · 2022
Double overhead powder, charging groomers, boosting off natural features, or crushing pillow lines. It's combination camber profile holds an edge fantastically with rocker on the nose and tail that keeps your nose floating above it all. The carbon infused 5500 base is tough, so even when you smash a rock or bottom out over a jagged cliff drop no worries are needed!
Any advanced to expert rider looking for an alt-freeride type of board should be considering this. It can bomb, carve up any groomer, weave through tight trees, and float in the deepest. It is also a very light, fast, and great board!
K2 Special Effects Snowboard · 2022
Rocker to Flat directional with a stiffer flex volume shifted shape. 3D contour nose that gradually blends the rocker to flat underfoot. Very stable on hard pack and excels in powder and soft snow.
K2 Party Platter Snowboard · 138 cm
K2's incredible volume shifted anomaly of a board and easily my favorite in their lineup. Semi-tapered directional shape that's centered, but with a sidecut that's so unique it rides like a true twin. Plenty flexible enough to jib around and tweak to your heart's content in the park and with the ollie bar in between the bindings, plenty rigid enough to set the stance back and get after some freeriding and surprise storm cycle deep days. Don't let this smaller size fool you, with its volume shifted shape in mind, it rides about 5-7 cm bigger than it is, without all the extra swing weight and boat-like feel due to the added surface area and width added to the base. Certainly the best wildcard you'll ever have in your quiver.
