Are you looking for a unique way to enhance your boarding experience? Of course you are! Look no further than this amazing board, the K2 Fastplant Rocker Snowboard. This board has a unique bamboo core that allows for unparalleled flexibility and resilience. This allows you to carve the slopes up and maintain that speed needed to pull off and land tricks. This board has an indestructible core, and you will feel it when you ride it.
Key Features of the K2 Fastplant Snowboard:
SHAPE: Twin Tip, Hyper Progressive
GLASS: Triax Top / ICG 20 Base
TORSION FORKS: Carbon Matrix II
BASE: 4000 Sintered
BASE BEVEL: 1
BASELINE: Jib Rocker
Fastplants 5-year Warranty Against Breakage: "Limited to complete board breaks of the core caused by snowboarding. A break this catastrophic would render the board completely un-ride-able, similar to a broken surfboard. Our lab hydraulics have a tough enough time breaking one, so if you do, well send a new board along with a get well card. Translation: Dont saw this thing in half or drag it behind a truck and expect to warranty it. Were onto you, pal. "
I just demo'd this board with the k2 hurrithane's and I must say that was a very fun board to ride. In the park it handled very well due to the softness of the deck, but also on the regular groomers it was very stable at high speeds, which is very hard to come by in a park oriented board
Absolutly killer board. Super damp, holds an edge great at highspeeds, even in an icy halfpipe. Butters smooth and pops like a skateboards, thanks to jib-rocker profile. Probably the best board i demo'd last year
This board is so awesome! It's Perfect for everything I live in Minnesota so I have not tried it on big groomers, powder or back country but I love it for buttering around boxes its really poppy for jumps and it is a great all around board for a intermediate to expert level snowboarder that has the money
The fastplant board seemed a very soft and easy to carry, as expected with a rocker board, although it works fine at high speed. It is alive with a good pop and a whole lot of fun. The edges holds the snow well (it grips perfectly). With a warranty of 5 years is a perfect table for everyone. From beginner to expert. Enjoy i
This board has the BamBOOYAH core with a 5 year warranty. 5 years is insane for a snowboard warranty. Its three layers of laminate Bamboo with TONS of Pop. No way this thing would snap.This board also has Jib Rocker. 80% flat, 20% rockered at the tip and tail. A lot of contact with the snow underfoot with the rockered tip and tail hgiving a soft, catch-free feeling. Recommended for a progressing freestyle rider
I bought this board on a whim late-season, because I got a ridiculous deal. From my first run on the board, all I could think was Wow. The board truly has everything I look for. While being slightly stiffer than other rockers I have ridden, don't let this set you back. The board has a great flex profile, and allows you to put the bend you want/need into it. What I was most surprised at was the pop. It's just there. I found myself feeling completely natural on the board, and just riding. I don't know how else to describe it. I didn't have to think about applying extra pressure to my ollie as on some other rockers, I didn't have to be more careful at speed due to instability, it was just comfortable doing whatever I felt like doing. All in all this board seems to live up to the hype, and I can assure you that the other boards in my quiver will definitely be seeing less time on the snow now that it has joined the ranks
This board offers nothing but the best in the business. I switched to the Fastplant mid season last winter from a Jibpan. The flex and pop took one time out to get used to. I was popping over the rails that first time out, but after that I was sold. I was popping an extra 3 feet off table tops and popping up to higher rails with ease. I highly recommend this board for any park/freestyle junky
After having my eye on this board for a while, I finally took the plunge and picked it up. First impressions after slapping my bindings on and fooling around on the carpet; this thing has serious flex. Even prior to breaking it in, it obvious the board loves to bend, but you can tell its not just a cheap noodle (which is obvious based on K2's aggressive 5 year no-snap warranty). The decision maker for me to get this board over the cheaper WWW rocker is all in the core technology that makes this board superior for park riding, yet stable at high speeds and suitable for all kinds of riding including some backcountry. I'm certain I can keep this as a primary board and scrap the rest. From what I've read, this board is supposed to be a game changer, once I get it up on the hill this weekend I will confirm it
This board has a nice design with a light frame that is perfect for trails or in the park. I found it was good on long rollers and rollercoaster boxes. I had a very good season with this board and over time I realized how much I loved this board and it's not too expensive. I would reccomend this board for anyone who likes park and black diamonds and especially to those who love the thrill of jumping and getting big air.
Man where do i start with this... A buddy of mine bought this board last week and he's been talking about how much flex it has and I thought he was lying, so he let me use it and I did a flex test on it and couldnt believe how tough that board was! But anyways, the board is perfect especially with the 5 year warranty on the side :) The flex is beyond what any park rider could want without having any worry of snapping or splitting the board. It's perfect for jibs, REALLY nice and easy to butter and press, and of course it handles on rails and about any size jump. So yeah, if you want a board you can rely on, this board is the one! :
Really fast board, not the fastest board, but it definitely has pep. Demo'd it in Japan whilst staying with some back packers, K2 is a great up and coming brand. I urge everyone to at least try this board. So much room to move and not an aggressive ride, no real strain, just easy cruisy riding
Bamboo core delivers amazing pop. Jib rocker shape for non catching edges on boxes. Surprisingly handled well out of the park can throw down the turns without any worries of the board noodling up. On icy conditions the edge hold was weak and can get sketchy if you didn't adjust. Great 5 year warranty on core and park specific. it is going to be interesting to see if this core can hold up to more abuse but so far it can take it.
I loved the design of the board, and all the technology k2 has added to this board with the new core and olley bar and all the other stuff. Also it was a good deal and I to buy things from this site because they always get my stuff here on time, without any mis-hapes
