This directional board is super fat and setback with a fairly deep swallowtail, meaning it rides short and dances through the pow like a bulldozer in ballerina shoes. The K2 Cool Bean Snowboard is super nimble and loose, but lays down trenches on the groomers like nobody's business. Cool beans, dude!
Directional Rocker Profile – An all-purpose profile designed to the be perfect companion for the all-terrain snowboarder. Directional Rocker Baseline™ has a medium- rise in the tip and a lower rise in the tail, allowing for effortless turns on hardpack and ample float in soft snow and crud.
Tweakened™ – Rocker is extended all the way out to the absolute ends of the board, unlocking new ride-able surface area for a bigger, more stable platform to press, float, and land on
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Tapered Directional/ Volume Shift™ – Volume is moved from the tips and tails of traditional snowboard shapes and placed it underfoot where it can be better controlled. This makes a wider, shorter design that maintains the same float and stability of a traditional board, but increases mobility and maneuverability. More slashing and better lines in the trees are now a reality.
BAP Core – K2 has blended three species of renewable timber to assemble a core that’s strong, lightweight, and designed to enhance dampening without the addition of other materials.
Biaxial Glass – Smooth all-purpose performance with a no-frills design. Fibers are woven together at 0° and 90°, creating a more forgiving flex pattern.
Sintered 4000 Base – Sintered 4000 base absorbs wax deep into the material for relentless glide and unrivaled durability.
