After taking a 5-year hiatus, the 2015 K2 Fastplant reemerged at this year’s SnowSports Industries America (SIA) Trade Show in Denver with a wild new look and fresh tech. At first glance of the board’s groovy psychedelic aesthetics, K2 onlookers appeared dazed and confused as if they just came from a Hate-Ashbury festival. But this freestyle-focused board is more than just a snippet from a Timothy Leary dream; it’s a confidence building machine that’s packed with every modern tech feature. So whether you’re looking to better your butters or shred the piste out of the mountain, the K2 Fastplant is the board that will make every adventure a memorable one.
Hunter, global brand director at K2, talks about the inspiration behind the Fastplant and how it embodies the mantra of “Seek and Enjoy.” Whatever adventure you seek, feel confident knowing that K2 has loaded this board with more technology than whiskey loaded John Belushi. The Fastplant has a freestyle baseline, Tweakends, ICG 20 carbon fibers, carbon web, Boombayah core and ollie bar to bring you the most popilicious park board on the market. In fact, the Bambooyah core is so uber-durable that K2 offers a 5-yr warranty on it. Now that’s confidence! K2 understands that each shredder seeks different adventures, so let the Fastplant be your sherpa and go enjoy whatever terrain moves you.
