Product Info

Oh, the good ‘ol days. Wait, every day is a good day on the mountain with the K2 Raygun Snowboard. Seasoned riders and intermediates alike will love the smooth ride and quality construction of the Raygun. All Terrain Rocker® Baseline sets the tone for solid performance and Hybritaper™ that keeps it light and smooth making the Raygun the most fun board for the buck.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All Terrain Rocker® (30% Rocker / 70% Flat) makes effortless turns on hardpack but also provides ample float in softer snow and crud.

Flex

Built for riding anywhere in any conditions, the K2 Raygun is for intermediate to advanced riders looking to progress their skills

Construction

Hybritaper™ tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce the swing weight.

Bambooyah™ is used for its incredible strength.

W1 Core features a single species of pure wood with proven flex, durability and snap.

Biax glass provides smooth, all-purpose performance

ICG Glass integrates carbon into the fiberglass, reducing overall weight and creating a super smooth release of power while increasing pop and liveliness.

Sidecut

Twin Hyper Progressive sidecut technology blends differing turn radii to form a sidecut that’s mellow in the tips and more aggressive in the center. This results in a super predictable feel that’s never hooky, is stable at high speeds and is smooth enough to butter.

Additional Features

2000 Extruded base is fast, durable, and easy to repair

1 degree base bevel

Ordered this board about a month ago and just got to use it for the first time this past week. Went out west with a school trip and used it 4 days in Jackson Hole and 1 day at Grand Targhee. For the price, this board can't be beat. The raygun handled pretty much anything that was thrown at it: ice on the first morning, slush in the afternoon, and TONS of powder the last few days. Its got nice flexibility and pop for ollies but it stiff enough between the feet to be solid at high speeds--I tracked myself going about 65 on a few groomers. It edges pretty well (not as well as a traditional camber, but thats expected) and once I set my bindings back, floated like mad through the pow. My only complaint is that a fingernail sized portion of the top sheet on the nose cracked on the 2nd or 3rd day. It's only aesthetic, so if you don't care about your board looking perfect....no harm done. Overall, this board a no frills, everyday grinder for someone who's looking to do a little--or a lot--of everything. Highly recommended for beginners and advanced riders alike.

I am an instructor at hunter mountain and this was my all terrain freestyle board, but i took one fall and got close to a core shot but the die cut pieces started sticking out and ruining my ride, then it delaminated, and split the core, popped the base out, and put it out for the season. great board; if it stays together

Comments about K2 Raygun Snowboard 2013:

I moved up to this after years of using a "beginner board" which I had outgrown from an ability standpoint. The Raygun is awesome.

It was comfortable from the moment I stepped on it, allowed me to go faster than ever before, and it's flexibility made going off piste smooth and easier than ever.

An advanced rider friend of mine rides one and loves it. I'm intermediate, at best, and love it.

Comments about K2 Raygun Snowboard 2013:

I ride the 12/13 Raygun wide with 13/14 Union Force Bindings. It is my first board (previously rented) and I have really improved on it across my first 5 sessions. I can outpress most of my crew and love being able to play on the flatground, carve harder in the backcountry, and is on par with other boards in terms of speed. I also have done well with riding switch on this too.

My biggest complaint is that the base seems to ding very easily. I got a significant gouge from stomping a flat rail and don't know it can be fully repaired via ptex due to it's width. The board isn't necessiarily supposed to be park oriented, but my buddies were doing the same with their all mauntain boards and mine showed more wear in 5 days than they had in 15.

              This is my first year boarding. The first setup I had was the old step in bindings and a old delaming board painted badly with a Irish flag. With that said, with the K2 Raygun it was night and day difference. This board is a lightning bolt compared to my last one. Good Wood 2013 and 2014 by Transworld. I picked last years model cuz of a huge price difference for the same board.

              There no issue with shipping. Evo's site was easy to navigate.

              I would recommend this board and Evo to anyone.

                I have ridden this board about 8 times now and I love it. This is my 3rd board. My last two were hand-me-downs and I couldn't have bought a better board. Both of my pervious boards were camber and I will never get another board thats not rocker. Its playful in the park but still stable on jumps. Its the perfect board for literally anything. Go straight down the mountain, throw some slashes, butters, absolutely anything. The tail and tip are light for the quick 180's. Definitely a great buy!

                This is a great board. it took mW a little bit to get used to it because of the traditional style with no camber. it has been a great board though. good for powder and taking it through trees and off the trails.

                it is kind of a stiff board don't recommend it for park.

                it was a great price

                  This was an overall good investment. I took it out and had a blast all over the mountain. This was fast, had just enough flex to it and made for a great day on the slopes.

                    Got this board around Christmas as a replacement for my Forum Youngblood that snapped in half. Board has performed great so far, my local resort is lacking snow but the board is handling well on the groomers and packed icy conditions. I feel it will be great once we get some powder. The boar is stylish and looks great.

                          Super fun board. Stiff enough for high speed and soft enough for big presses and butters

                          Great product. I have only taken it to the local 300 ft drop hill, Mad River Mountain. The slopes are always icy but the board has held up great.

                              Great board, just as advertised. K2 really nailed it! I purchased this board as an upgrade from last year and couldn't be happier. I typically stay on grommers because of who I am riding with and it handles perfectly doing whatever i choose. With that being said, I was worried about the flex in park and how it would handle in the trees but came up nothing short of what I hoped. I love what they do with slimming down the edges before the nose and tail. Couldn't be happier with this and I highly reccomend this to anyone who Is indesisive and just wants a all mountain board to hit a little of everything without a problem, this is it.

                                Ordered it in the offseason, so I don't have comments on the way it rides yet, but the product arrived quickly and was what I expected (other than some different colors on the bottom.)

                                Very happy with the snowboard. Turns on a dime, handles powder, light weight. I switched from riding a 1990 Burton Air to this board, so I'm having to relearn how to snowboard.
