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.

I have the Splitbean and this pays when you earn your turns
I have the 2018 split bean - the 144 version. Shape and rocker are the same but keep in mind that the split is heavier and probably has a different flex pattern. I ride with the Union Expedition split binding and my burton ION boots.
I love powder, tight trees and steeps. Put these three together and when you have to earn it: i love this board. Super float, very slashy quick turns - honestly excellent in these conditions. if that is your favoured terrain i would not hesitate. The lack of tail does result in little to no pop potential but for me in these conditions it doesn't matter.
I have ridden on groomers as well and it can carve and lays down a good high speed line but for me it is a bit of work and slow edge to edge on the hard pack. If i am spending time on groomers this is not the board for me.
Keep it in the pow - awesome
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!
