For some of us, each run at the resort is like listening to a jazz band play a live show - it’s spontaneous, making decisions on the fly of where to carve, slash, and how fast to roll into the next side hit. The easiest way to describe it is to simply getting into the groove. The Instrument features a directional camber line and utilizes our Volume Shift™ design to add the correct width to the board for laying trenches on groomers. A longer radius in the tip of the board eases turn initiation, while a deeper sidecut underfoot helps to rail turns. The Instrument features a 3/4” inch setback and 10mm of taper to help it plane out in the deep stuff, and it features a hard, fast Sintered 4000 base. Inside, our sustainably sourced S1 core is equal parts durable and damp underfoot. Carbon Torque Forks™ extend from the insert pack to the contact points for responsive power transfer, and the entire package is wrapped in our ICG™ 10 Biax Fiberglass - featuring tip-to-tail carbon stringers for increased pop and extra stability for when it gets rowdy. The Instrument is for those days where you don’t quite know what the forecast has in store.

Amazing Board

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Mar 8, 2024
This is the best snowboard I've ridden. I ride with 3 other K2 riders and we will all love our K2's. But I specifically love the Instrument. It's so smooth. It rides amazing in powder. It feels effortless. I'm riding the 163 which I thought might be too long but it's not. I can still easily slice through trees. I can feel a little chatter when the groomers get nasty but it's still fairly stable. I can't say enough good things about this board. Perfect amount of flex for my style of riding. I was nervous it would be too stiff, it's not. I can ride switch easily. I like to land jumps switch and I can ride them out easily. Top notch board, great technology. If you're deciding to purchase or not I say you won't be disappointed.

Ryan is the man!!
5 /5
Ryan had great recommendations, was friendly, and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to find the right board and bindings for me! He finds you the best deal and charges you nothing in return. But of course I gave him a tip for his hard work! Curated is an awesome sight and I’m so glad I found it!

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!

5 /5
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!

Taylor gave me options that were reasonable and exactly what I was asking for, he didn't to force more expensive boards on me or boards that are outside of my comfort zone. I am pleased with my purchase, and I can't wait to try it out on this winter!!
