K2 Eighty Seven 2019 - 2017 Review by The Good Ride
The first time wet tried the K2 Eighty-Seven in 2017, Peter hated and I thought was ok but felt really chattery. I took it out again in late spring/early summer conditions to find that the ride was much better a year later. Maybe it was the conditions before or maybe there were some tweaks to the production model from the 2017 demo we tried but regardless it was a more fun ride. So here is my take after a morning on it thanks to Gravity Sports at Mt. Bachelor. Overall it had a good feel under foot and it’s a pretty recommendable ride for those that want a solid slashy ride on powder and groomers.
The 2019 k2 Eighty-Seven hasn’t changed from the 2018 so the 2018 review still stands. Only thing I noticed is they added a 153 and 157 to the mix.
Conditions: Soft spring snow.
Riders: James (Size 9, 5’10” 185-195lbs)
Boots: Adidas Tactical ADV
Insoles: Sandsole Custom Insoles
Bindings: Union Atlas
Set Up: 22.5”, on reference stance 15 front -6 back
Here is a look at the camber profile.
I also did a quick measurement of the set back on board compared to the set back on side cut. At a 22.75″ stance width you can get as far as 7″ back on board with normal disc bindings and a little further with mini discs.
K2 Eighty Seven Past Reviews
The K2 Eighty Seven is a board that is described as the board you take on a one week trip to satisfy all your needs. Peter feels the Eighty Seven should be 86’d and I felt it wasn’t a terrible board but not one I’d want in my quiver on a trip and especially so with a $600 price point.
