K2 Cool Bean 2019 - 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 the kind of board that does really well when the conditions are clean and you want to surf groomers or powder.  However, when it’s bumpy it bucks around like so many other short, fat way set back on board swallowtails.  Maybe even a bit more than the average super set back swallowtail.

The 2016-2019 Cool Bean hasn’t changed much so our original review still stands.  We’d love to take it out again in some deep to see if our old take is the same.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

Riders: James, Peter, Jimbo

Set Up: Set back about 23″ 18 front 0 back
