K2 Marauder 2022/23
Built as a workhorse to access any backcountry zone, the K2 Marauder Splitboard Package is the perfect partner for the skin track and the reliable atop a steep couloir. The core is built from three species of sustainable timber and is surrounded by our ICG™️ 10 Biaxially Woven Fiberglass with Carbon for stability and snap on both the ascent and descent. Weaving Carbon Fiber stringers into the fiberglass gives the Marauder liveliness without adding extra weight or overdoing it on the torsional rigidity. Our Sintered P-Tex sidewalls are extremely durable, create a smooth, damp feel, and help us reduce overall waste during the manufacturing process. Our tough-as-nails matte top sheet material helps us keep the weight down for cruising on the skin track and our Sintered 4000 base is hard and durable. Simply put, a sintered base retains wax better for long days in the alpine. We know backcountry touring can put a beating on your board both on the way up and on the way back down, so we used a black material along the riding surface for seamless repairs after those inevitable rock encounters.
