Pow-surfing dream machine.

Looking for a deep-day dream machine for popping pillows and slashing through secret tree stashes? Strap into the K2 Ultra Dream Snowboard for near-unsinkable float in snorkel-deep powder and straight-line stability when you're charging through chop and flying down groomers. This pow-specific ride is directional with K2's BC Shaping for effortless float. BC Shaping gives you a longer tip blend with a delayed sidecut initiation to prevent over-steering that's often the result of a board's traditional, hard-snow based geometry.

Although the Ultra Dream excels in deep, untracked snow, its All-Terrain baseline with Tweekends gives you versatility to ride this board when the pow's all tracked up. Completely flat underfoot, the Ultra Dream provides a stable feel when you're pointing-it down chutes and groomers. However, make no mistake, the rockered, spoon-like nose and slightly less rockered tail (what K2 calls Tweekends) make this board stand-out as one of the best all-terrain pow boards on the market.

Looking inside this all-terrain powder slayer, you'll find a near-indestructible Bambooyah Blend WH4 core that's backed by K2's two-year warranty against breakage. This super-durable, ultra-light core uses horizontal bamboo laminates for tons of snap when you're launching off cliffs, pillow lines, and natural features. Honeykomb strips through the board's center drastically reduce weight without sacrificing durability. Carbon Web II stringers radiate from the binding inserts to the tip and tail contacts for enhanced response, while the Ollie Bar adds pre-loaded spring for popping over anything on the mountain. Additionally, the board's super-fast Ø sintered base keeps you gliding over the deepest snow without bogging down.

  • Directional shape with BC Shaping (longer tip blend)
  • All-Terrain baseline with Tweekends (flat underfoot, extended rockered tips)
  • Bambooyah Blend WH4 core (horizontal bamboo laminates with Honeykomb strips)
  • Carbon Web II (carbon radiating from bindings towards tip, tail)
  • Ollie Bar (pre-loaded, cambered lay-up of carbon, Kevlar, glass between bindings)
  • ICG 20 (carbon integrated with fiberglass)
  • Ø sintered base (ultra-thin, static-eliminating base)

This board charges!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second ultra dream, the first one was a 158 and was great but with the long tip/tail and short sidecut it feels like a much smaller board so my next one was a 161. For me this board is all about the twin- BC shaping. It allows you to size up for more stability and float while keeping the side cut short and responsive. This board rips in pow and choppy pow, especially the heavier stuff and wind buff. I even prefer this board in the late spring when the slush gets deep. Definitely not great on icy or hard pack days. I have another board for that.

The Ultradream 161 was the board of choice here. A really fun day about 8 inches of fresh to rip. This board floats extremely well in deeper snow and is a pow board for sure. I don't feel that it was "slow" edge to edge at all but rides as advertised and is not comparable to a cambered board bc that is not what it is meant to compare against. Reverse camber or flat technology or whatever the flavor of rocker is going to be much different than a cambered board especially in pow. This is a bi-axial glassed board so right off the bat you know it's going to be softer. Comparing to a stiffer board would just be an unfair comparison. These boards allow tons of float and can shred just as hard as anything out there. The caveat to this is once they are on hard pack they ride a little different and have a certain feel depending on the profile. That being said i was more than satisfied with the float the ultradream provided and i'm sure you will too. I hope you enjoyed my review and helps you make the right decision for you and your riding style.

Thanks,

I am using 32 TM Two size US10.5 and by right the width of the board should be in between 255 to 259mm. Based on the board info, Ultra Dream 158 has a 251mm and 159wide has a 263mm waist. Which one should I get? Thanks in advance.

Responded on

Are you use to riding a wide board? If so then I would go wide, but if you're not use to riding a wide board, it will be an adjustment going edge to edge with a wide.

Responded on

My LibTech Travis Rice has a 258mm and it was perfect. So you're saying that I be better off with getting the 159w rather than the 158?

Responded on

It would be better to go up 5 mm than down 7 mm. Also depends on your bindings, if they have a toe ramp to reduce over hang than it might not matter as much. Me personally I ride a size 10 boot in the 32 focus, and I hate wide boards.

Aight, thanks for the input. I'll have to think about it. Happy shredding...

Not the Turbo Dream

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been riding K2 for years, and love the turbo dream. When I first decided to try the Ultra dream I thought, this thing must be better than the turbo dream. WRONG, it was slow edge to edge, it rides much bigger than it's size. I would size down for sure on it, and there is very little edge contact with the huge rocker nose and tail, so when it gets cruddy and hard the board did not excel. It was much more fun in powder but with that really large tail it made it difficult to maneuver quickly.

The Turbo Dream and Peacekeeper blow this board out of the water.

Responded on

Well it is a powder board, which you are comparing to all-mountain board (turbo dream) and stiff powder board (peacekeeper).
My question is what you mean when you say it rides bigger? Why would you size down on a board that already has "shorter effective width / board length" than other K2 snowboards?

Responded on

I would size down because of how big the nose and tail ride. I have a 2014 turbo dream 161 and the 2014 Ultra Dream same size, the Turbo Dream rides better in powder than the ultra dream. The big tail gives drag in the powder where you don't want it when initiating a turn, thats why when you look at real powder decks the tails are so small. This why I would size down, if your just using it in powder you don't need that huge tail, and when you get out of the powder into the crud and hard pack it's very slow edge to edge compared to its the Turbo dream and Peacekeeper. Just my opinion but the Turbo Dream and Peace Keeper are better options in my mind. I am a big K2 fan but was not impressed with the Ultradream.

Responded on

Wehn it's over 8-10 inhces deep the bigger tail helps for sure. I have a few smaller pow board like the Malolo that ride really well in pow but once it's over a foot deep the size of the nose and tail help plow through and help float you above a little more than a smaller board would since you would have to be leaning back more with less size. This board is softer for sure and as advertised much better in fresh snow then on hard pack With that being said it rips once it's in deeper snow. This could be considered a quiver board and would not be a great option if you only want to ride 1 board all the time. I don't feel this board is slow edge to edge at all. I had plenty of control and got plenty of power when i needed to rip turns.
