Best List: Cool Bean snowboard by K2

If you hope to spend run after run in the sweet, deep powder on a single plank this winter, you’ll want a state-of-the-art companion.

K2 Snowboarding’s Cool Bean is just that: a directional, short and fat board with a swallowtail design that’s built for the freshies and surfing whatever the mountain throws at you.

Part of K2’s Enjoyer series, the Cool Bean is definitely not a one-quiver board. But if you’re looking to spice up your runs, take a closer look at the Cool Bean’s flat center and rockered tip and tail. This baby should float your boat.
