Broad­cast $450

K2

Transworld Snowboarding - - MEN’S ALL MOUNTAIN -

The Broad­cast may be new to the K2 line, but this ver­sa­tile deck’s di­rec­tional, cam­bered pro­file re­calls the tried and true, no-bull­shit designs of snow­boards past. And con­sid­er­ing our week of test­ing saw ev­ery­thing from slush to blower pow, groomers to sketchy tree jibs, there’s no deny­ing that this time­less com­po­si­tion is as ef­fec­tive to­day as ever. Ma­te­ri­als have pro­gressed, but the essence re­mains the same. As one tester ex­plained, “It’s a bad boy’s board that makes you want to ol­lie ropes, spray skiers, and rail carves,” adding, “It’s not flashy, but un­der­neath it’s a tro­phy truck.” Just the way a snow­board should be.
