Take whatever you previously thought about snowboards and hit reset. The new K2
Fastplant Snowboard signals yet another first for K2
and for snowboarding: the indestructible Bambooyah™ core. New for the 2012 season is the addition of the incredible Ollie Bar™ that gives the Jib Rocker Baseline as much pop as a true camber board. From park to podium, you will love this freestyle king.
K2’s proven Jib Rocker® Baseline technology combines with the intrinsically strong, flexible, and resilient properties of BamBooyah™ and the new Ollie Bar™, ensuring that the Fastplant meets and beats the demands of the most progressive parks. Finally, a rockered board that won’t wash out.
Construction and Core
Inspired both by skate decks and K2’s focus on Eco Conscious Construction, the BamBooyah™ core is indestructible. The key distinguishing factor is a layered, skate-inspired ply laminate. The core is then wrapped in fiberglass for strength and durability, rendering it indestructible. This construction reduces ecological impact through Bamboo’s fast growing properties as well as its ability to be grown without pesticides, artificial irrigation, or large-scale environmental degradation.
Hybritaper™ tapers out the core at the tip and tail into a thin sandwich to reduce the swing weight.
Ollie Bar™ is a 100% carbon element that lives in the center of the board
True twin shape makes it easy to ride in any direction you want.
The Hyper progressive sidecut mellows out the transitions leaving you with the most predictable, best all-around riding board on the market - responsive enough for high-speed power carves but smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to park.
Jib Rocker® Baseline is a versatile twin rocker built to dominate the park. It has just enough rise in the tip and tail to create a loose, buttery feel on all types of terrain. Contact points stay well off the snow until engaged thus eliminating edge hook while maintaining fun pop.
4000 Sintered base of the K2 Fastplant is the fastest natural base material available - get ready to boost. Exceptionally durable, it absorbs wax faster and retains it longer.
