Open fire on the whole mountain with this extra-terRADical weapon.
When you finally get tired of showing up at the mountain with the wrong board for the day's conditions or for the terrain that your buddies happen to be focused on today, you'll reach for a board that's designed to tackle anything you throw at it. The K2 Raygun likes everything from the steeps to the flats, hard snow to deep, technical or mellow.
The Raygun starts with K2's All Terrain baseline profile. This hybrid rocker profile employs slightly higher rise at the the tip than the tail to give the Raygun a loose buttery feel while maintaining responsive edge control and loads of pop. The directional shape uses K2's All Terrain Hyper Progressive sidecut, with an infinite number of turn radii that progress from mellow at the tips to aggressive between the bindings. The result is a predictable feel with tons of control, but with mellow, non-hooking contact points at the tip and tail. It's K2's perfect blend of precision and forgiveness. Construction is K2's patented Hybritech, which uses sidewalls along the running surface that flow into the tip and tail for durability, optimized turn initiation, and reduced swing weight.
The W1 core is made up of one type of renewable wood, strategically chosen to increase strength, reduce weight, and dampen, and finished off the recipe with the easy-to-repair 2000 extruded base.

The perfect board for me
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'd taken up snowboarding last year and had bought some cheap used equipment just to see if I would like it. After a few outings I knew it was time to buy a decent board and boots. I ended up with the K2 Raygun and Ryder boots. The difference in my ability to control the board and quickly initiate turns was amazing. I'd been struggling with my toeside turns (took too long to initiate) but with this new board I was able to snap right into them. I've ridden it on corduroy as well as several inches of fresh on top of packed base. Both conditions were easy to ride and maintain complete control. I've not ridden in deep powder as my skills aren't yet there but I think it's only a matter of time.
