Description:

We didn't think it was possible, but the K2 Gyrator Snowboard's Powder Rocker construction makes powder even more fun. Conventional boards have camber (where the board curves upward slightly in the middle), the Gyrator has rocker, like a surf board. The reverse curvature helps the board rise to the surface of soft snow while you stay in a centered stance, which means more powerful powder turns, less leg burn, and easier landings. K2 tapered the Gyrator board's lively wood core at the tips to create low swing weight for easier spins. Although built for the deep stuff, the Gyrator's hyper-progressive sidecut keeps it maneuverable enough to ride the entire mountain.
