Product Info

The all-mountain freestyle destroyer known as the K2 Fastplant Snowboard is back, and hungrier than ever. Upgraded for 2013, K2 threw in Tweekend™ shaping for maximum stability at the limit. The Fastplant also features a Bambooyah™ core for indestructability, and is loaded with Ollie Bar™ for maximum pop. Ready to rage at the park, pipe or all over the mountain.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Jib Rocker®(20% Rocker / 80% Flat) A versatile twin Rocker built to dominate the park. 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 – eliminating edge hook while maintaining fun pop.

Flex

Perfect forgiving flex for the all-mountain ripper who wants to perform freestyle tricks on a bigger stage.

Shape

Hybritaper™Takes the Hybritech Construction and tapers out the core at the tip and tail to reduce the swing weight. K2 blends the tips from a cap into a thin sandwich removing material where you don’t need it.

Hyper ProgressiveAn infinite number of different radius are blended together flawlessly from mellow in the tips, to more aggressive in the center. The result is a super predictable feel that never hooks. Responsive at high speeds and smooth enough to butter your way from the peak to park.

Tweekend™Tweaks the tip and tail of K2 boards by extending the rocker curvature all the way out to the ends, giving you more surface area to press, float and land on.

Core

NEW Bambooyah™ BlendA skate-derived horizontal bamboo laminate that adds incredible strength and stands up to brutal beatings.

WH4With a greater percentage of K2's Honeykomb technology that goes into the WH3 core, it's engineered to maintain durability at minimal weight.

Laminates

Triaxial/ICG 20A glass laminate with diagonal layers that stiffens the board torsionally. Giving you improved edge hold and increased stability for those off-axis landings.

Base

1˚ Bevel

4000 SinteredFastest natural base material available, exceptionally durable, and absorbs deeper and retains wax longer.

Additional Features

Carbon Web™ IDesigned specifically to enhance K2's Baseline technology and brings the pop and snap of carbon closer to your bindings for max ollies and control in every situation.

Ollie-BarBuilt in place in a pre-loaded, cambered shape it solves the concern that rocker board don’t have the pop camber board have.Made with a secret layup of carbon, Kevlar and urethane layers, the ollie bar is positioned in the center of the board between the binding inserts. Strong ollies and pressing power doesn’t come from the tail alone. The backbone center section is actually more critical for smooth even pressure.

Comments about K2 Fastplant Snowboard 2013:

This board blends some of my favorite technology that K2 has to offer in one, do-it-all package. The Jib Rocker base makes this board board super playful without sacrificing it's ability to rip at high speeds. The bamboo core and added Ollie Bar make this board light and snappy as well. This board is ideal for any all-mountain, freestyle rider looking for a light, responsive board that holds up on and off piste.

Comments about K2 Fastplant Snowboard 2013:

Seriously, the fastplant has it all. Its poppy, lightweight and playful. Oh, and super durable too. I guess Bamboo does that for you. I really like this board a lot. If there were such a thing as "JC's top picks for 2013", this board would be on the list.
