K2 Carve Air 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Carve Air is a pretty fun ride and out of all of K2’s new freeride/powder line we found this the most fun. We ride a lot of short fatty’s like the Carve Air and our biggest complaint was the mid-level edge hold as well as a bit of a twitchy feel compared to some of its peers in the industry.  You can see from the video though that every time I started to commit to the edge and really carve the edge would let go and start to wash.  It did have good pop though and in good snow, it did carve well.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
