Since its introduction more than a dozen years ago, the K2 Zeppelin Snowboard has earned a solid reputation as an all-mountain freestyle machine. Titanal and carbon torsion forks and carbon strips integrated into the fiberglass give the board solid edge hold, amazing pop for huge ollies, and enough strength to power through backseat landings. K2 gave the directional-twin Zeppelin its Hyper Progressive sidecut for race-car like performance in tight, medium, or long radius turns. A lightweight wood core tapers toward the ends for low swing weight, so you can finally land that 900. When everyone else has to unstrap on long traverses, you'll make it thanks to K2's screaming fast base.

How does the K2 Zeppelin and K2 Believer compare? I'm currently riding a Burton Custom and was looking into buying another all mountain board, as I've beat the custom pretty hard. I'm currently looking at Rome Design, Arbor Cado, and K2 Believer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hey dude. I've rode a K2 Zeppelin for 6 years, it's an 03 model. Best all around board made. Great in the mountains and powder but fine in the midwest on the not so gnar as well. I'll probably buy this years model in the next couple months on closeout. That's all I got.

very fast board, not for begginers. On piste I did easily up to 60mph (measured with GPS) and it was still stable. Also excelent for freeriding.

I usually like K2 products and was looking for a board mainly for hardpack snow and sometimes pow if conditions allow... I'm 6 foot 215lbs. size 11 shoe.... what do you recommend?
Cris:I am your size exactly. I ride a Burton 166 Frontier for the hardpack and a Supermodel 168 for the rare fluffy day (New England). I am a crusier and stay directional with 42 deg stance forward and 21 rear. No toe/heal hang with those angles and nice carving.I was looking at the Zep to check sidecut. Looking for more aggressive in/out of the turns. And stiffer than Frontier.Only recommendation - either hardpack or soft - at our size, don't get too flexible a deck. If you cruise at speeds - stiff is better. Later - Tom

is this board toomuch 4 a fairly new rider?
I would say yes just because of how stiff it is. They have added carbon and titanium to parts of this board and it makes for quite a stiff setup that for the fairly new rider it will feel like the board is riding them more than they are riding it. I would suggest a softer more forgiving board than this.

What boot sizes are recommended for the standard and wide board?
Boot sizes are decided by how big your feet are, not how big your baord is. The thresh hold for deciding if you need a wide or not is around 12. if you have noticed your toes draggin in the past, get a wide.

I have another question When you say ride it really hard what exactly do you mean? how hard is that
Riding hard means you don't just stay on the white fluffy stuff. You're out boarding multiple times a week, hitting rails, ramps, pipes, logs, and the occasional pain in the butt rock that's sticking up through through the snow. It's like driving your car like grandma, or driving it like a street racer. Grandma's car is going to hold up longer.
Is this board indestructable?
Is this board indestructable?
No, not at all. If you ride really hard, you will develop pressure cracks, lose edge, and get core shots.

This is not a rockered board.
very fast and easy to ride
This board costs way to much for a pos made in China. Where are the savings K2? Why do your boards cost more than boards like Rome that are made in quality factories in Austria?
