Named for its intended use, the K2 Excavator specializes in digging deep trenches on groomers and displacing powder after a storm cycle.

Built around a wider perimeter, with a dual radius sidecut, the Excavator is unisex in approach. The Excavator’s wider profile allows riders to size down around 5cm from their usual length without sacrificing performance, and it’s extra width and 20mm taper benefits riders with larger feet, reducing toe drag on deep carves and long traverses.

A combination of a smooth-flexing S1 core and tail to tail ICG™ 10 Biax Glass keeps the Excavator responsive and damp underfoot. We’ve also added our pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ to allow for an energy boost in and out of turns and those spontaneous “Slow Sign” ollies. The Excavator is packed with tech to keep you playful and floaty when powder is on the forecast.

The K2 Excavator has quickly become one of my favorites in the quiver. This volume-shifted snowboard is surprisingly daily driver-friendly, as it has versatility pretty much everywhere except the park. This board is designed to be ridden 5-8cm shorter than your typical board. I personally did not size down when I purchased board, and what I have is an absolute... Read more
Ideal for
  • Some seeking deep powder days and just as deep groomer trenches
  • Advanced freeriders
  • The aggressive rider who finds themselves on the groomers, between the trees, and floating on top of pow.
Not ideal for
  • Not as playful in pow as other rocker dominant profiles.
  • Difficult to size correctly

I was looking for something fun to add to the quiver, and I didn’t realize how much fun I was adding. East Coast excavating some of the worst conditions, and it’s a blast no matter what. Plenty of float even when it looks like the baby board of the quiver. I went down 8cm from my daily ride to keep... Read more

  • Deep pow or soft slush

East coast Shred stick

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Feb 1, 2024
This board is unreal. Ive been riding a burton custom 162w for the last decade and finally found the board that matches my riding stlye. If you love ripping groomers, surfing powder stashes, and bobbing through the trees, this is your board. It carves better than I could ever dream of, so surfy, lets you do such nice drawn out carves, the tail is so maneuverable it is effortless. Don't ever stop making this board! Also I chose the 158 and felt it was the perfect size for me at 195 lb 6’3.

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

Jared helped me get insight on my first snowboard purchase
5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!
