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 and caters to advanced riders, carving groomers, and floating in powder. The wider profile of the Excavator allows riders to size down around 5cm from their usual length without sacrificing performance. This extra width and 20mm taper benefits riders with larger feet, reducing toe drag on deep carves and long traverses. Inside, we use our smooth-flexing S1 Core to keep it responsive and damp underfoot. Finally, we top it with our ICG™ 10 Biax Glass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers. This technology lets us keep the snowboard relaxed torsionally for easy turn initiation but helps to add snap over the entire length of the board. We've also added our pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ in the tail to allow for an energy boost into and out of turns and those spontaneous "Slow Sign" ollies. This tech is sandwiched between a wax-infused Sintered 4001 base, waxable and supremely durable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ top sheet. Feature 1: NEW! S1 Core - Lightweight, snappy, and durable, our ALL NEW! A1 Core is made from three renewable species of timber - Bamboo, Aspen, and Paulownia. Aspen-dominant to highlight the snap and response of this wood, we've combined it with Bamboo at 30 ° underfoot to increase strength, supercharge the edge-to-edge response, and increase the pressure distribution along the edge. We've also placed lightweight paulownia in the tip and tail to help to reduce swing weight. Feature 2: ICG™ 10 Biax Carbon Glass - Integrating Carbon Fiber stringers that run the length of the board into our fiberglass increases the snap of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity. Feature 3: SnoPhobic Top Sheet - This top sheet material sheds unwanted snow build-up, keeping your snowboard light and nimble. Feature 4: Carbon Power Fork™ - A pre-cambered carbon inlay in the tail of your snowboard gives the board energy in and out of turns and adds extra pop for takeoffs and landings. Feature 5: Hybritech™ Sidewall Construction - A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we can reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors. Feature 6: Wax Infused Sintered 4001 Base - Built using Crown's hardest and fastest Sintered base material on the market, the Wax-Infused Sintered 4001 holds wax longer than other Sintered bases for a smoother glide, longer.
At first glance, the K2 Wildheart gives the appearance of a one-trick powder pony. But, as soon as you get it on the groomers or start riding it through the trees you'll come to realize it's an extremely versatile performer that will quickly become a staple in your quiver. The directional Wildheart sticks with a tried-and-true Camber Profile that rails on groomers just as hard as it rips in powder. Our Volume Shift design allows you to use a slightly shorter board than your usual length without sacrificing float in deep snow and allows you to tip the board over even further while carving without pesky toe or heel drag. The Rhythm Core is made from sustainably harvested wood and specializes in creating a flex pattern specifically scaled to women snowboarders and is sandwiched between ICG 10 Biax Fiberglass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers for precise handling and edge control. Carbon TorkForks provide quick edge response for tight turns through trees or your favorite berm run, while the Sintered 4000 base is tough as nails and feels as if it were shot out of a cannon. You'll be sure to reach for the all-mountain K2 Wildheart when the snow starts to stack up, but you'll be simply amazed when you unleash its prowess on the rest of the mountain. - Rhythm Core: Women's-specific core shaping and profiling using sustainably harvested timber to reduce weight and add maneuverability while retaining strength and liveliness. - ICG 10 Biax Carbon Glass: Integrating Carbon Fiber stringers that run the length of the board into our fiberglass increases the snap of the snowboard without adding unnecessary rigidity. - Carbon Torque Forks: Carbon stringers extend at 45° angles from the inserts toward the tip and tail, adding responsiveness and stability at all speeds. - Hybritech Sidewall Construction: A K2 exclusive. By transitioning from a P-Tex sidewall into a capped construction in the tip and tail of our snowboards, we are able to reduce waste while giving our snowboards better energy transfer and making them more durable than our competitors. - Sintered 4000 Base: Hard, fast, and durable, our Sintered Base material holds wax better than extruded materials, increasing speed and glide.
