K2 Cool Bean 2016 Snowboard Review

K2 Cool Bean 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Cool Bean is a very quiver specific powder board for those looking for a very different way to ride the powder.  It’s a somewhat late addition to the growing trend to make short wide powder rides for a different surfy feel like riding a fish surfboard.

Just carved up man-made powder this past saturday (1/9/16) in waterville valley nh on this bad boy and you do NOT need powder to have fun. once you get used to the wider board, you can lay down some carving turns and it holds an edge beautifully. It is FAST and quick and responsive through bumps. Can't wait for a powder day and to take it through the trees. Definitely a quiver board you will be glad to have!
