About Brain Dead:
Brain Dead is a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world. With its disruptive, graphic-led approach, the brand takes its cues from post punk, underground comics, and the spirit of subculture as a whole. Brain Dead is not one person, nor is it one idea. It sits in the space between people.
Named for its intended use, the K2 Excavator specializes in digging deep trenches on groomers and displacing powder after a storm cycle.
Built around a wider perimeter with a dual-radius sidecut, the Excavator is unisex in approach and caters to advanced riders, carving groomers, and floating in powder. The wider profile of the Excavator allows riders to size down around 5cm from their usual length without sacrificing performance. This extra width and 20mm taper benefits riders with larger feet, reducing toe drag on deep carves and long traverses.
Inside, we use our smooth-flexing S1 Core to keep it responsive and damp underfoot. Finally, we top it with our ICG™ 10 Biax Glass with tip-to-tail carbon stringers. This technology lets us keep the snowboard relaxed torsionally for easy turn initiation but helps to add snap over the entire length of the board. We’ve also added our pre-cambered Carbon Power Forks™ in the tail to allow for an energy boost into and out of turns and those spontaneous “Slow Sign” ollies. This tech is sandwiched between a wax-infused Sintered 4001 base, waxable and supremely durable P-Tex sidewalls, and a snow-shedding SnoPhobic™ top sheet.
