Pow-surfing dream machine.
Looking for a deep-day dream machine for popping pillows and slashing through secret tree stashes? Strap into the K2 Ultra Dream Snowboard for near-unsinkable float in snorkel-deep powder and straight-line stability when you're charging through chop and flying down groomers. This pow-specific ride is directional with K2's BC Shaping for effortless float. BC Shaping gives you a longer tip blend with a delayed sidecut initiation to prevent over-steering that's often the result of a board's traditional, hard-snow based geometry.
Although the Ultra Dream excels in deep, untracked snow, its All-Terrain baseline with Tweekends gives you versatility to ride this board when the pow's all tracked up. Completely flat underfoot, the Ultra Dream provides a stable feel when you're pointing-it down chutes and groomers. However, make no mistake, the rockered, spoon-like nose and slightly less rockered tail (what K2 calls Tweekends) make this board stand-out as one of the best all-terrain pow boards on the market.
Looking inside this all-terrain powder slayer, you'll find a near-indestructible Bambooyah Blend WH4 core that's backed by K2's two-year warranty against breakage. This super-durable, ultra-light core uses horizontal bamboo laminates for tons of snap when you're launching off cliffs, pillow lines, and natural features. Honeykomb strips through the board's center drastically reduce weight without sacrificing durability. Carbon Web II stringers radiate from the binding inserts to the tip and tail contacts for enhanced response, while the Ollie Bar adds pre-loaded spring for popping over anything on the mountain. Additionally, the board's super-fast Ø sintered base keeps you gliding over the deepest snow without bogging down.

I am using 32 TM Two size US10.5 and by right the width of the board should be in between 255 to 259mm. Based on the board info, Ultra Dream 158 has a 251mm and 159wide has a 263mm waist. Which one should I get? Thanks in advance.
Are you use to riding a wide board? If so then I would go wide, but if you're not use to riding a wide board, it will be an adjustment going edge to edge with a wide.
My LibTech Travis Rice has a 258mm and it was perfect. So you're saying that I be better off with getting the 159w rather than the 158?
It would be better to go up 5 mm than down 7 mm. Also depends on your bindings, if they have a toe ramp to reduce over hang than it might not matter as much. Me personally I ride a size 10 boot in the 32 focus, and I hate wide boards.
Aight, thanks for the input. I'll have to think about it. Happy shredding...
Not the Turbo Dream
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have been riding K2 for years, and love the turbo dream. When I first decided to try the Ultra dream I thought, this thing must be better than the turbo dream. WRONG, it was slow edge to edge, it rides much bigger than it's size. I would size down for sure on it, and there is very little edge contact with the huge rocker nose and tail, so when it gets cruddy and hard the board did not excel. It was much more fun in powder but with that really large tail it made it difficult to maneuver quickly.
The Turbo Dream and Peacekeeper blow this board out of the water.
