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.
