Snowboard K2 Fastplant

Note: The actual colour of the board's base may be different than the one shown on the picture. Brands make them randomly.

If you look at it closely, you will probably see it growing. It can grow up to 2 meters per year! We're talking about bamboo here. This particular wood has some very special properties and it's used more and more to build snowboards. It offers pop and durability and weighs almost nothing. The Fastplant is no exception and pro riders Jake Kuzyk and Matt Belzile have chosen it as their partner of choice.  

What can the K2 Fastplant do? 

The notorious board returns for another season. It is a freestyle twin tipped board, super lively and playful, featuring a flat camber and a nose and tail rocker, the board is easily pressable and fun to move around. Throw it in the park and prepare for rampage. Leave no features untouched with the Fastplant on your feet. Jump the pique-nique table, land on a rail and send double corks off black kickers, the board is a trick machine. K2 has found the perfect mix of stiffness and flexibility to make the board poppy and reactive but also playful and forgiving. And that's not it. The rockered profile allows the board to deal with deep powder with a ridiculous ease meaning you can very well explore the backcountry until you find a natural snow park out there. If for some reason you had not heard about this board, you better get your hands on it before we run out of stock! 

Who is the K2 Fastplant designed for?  

We recommend it to advanced riders who have a bias towards freestyle. Sturdy and compact, the Fastplant delivers an explosive pop and it can turn any terrain into a new playground. It is a bit stiff though and it requires good technique to be managed.

  • Ollie-Bar  :

    The Ollie bar is a totally new approach to adding pop to a snowboard. Built 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. You gotta try it to believe the pop.

  • Freestyle Baseline  :

    A twin rocker construction for uling the snowpark. Just enough rocker in the nose and tail for a more feel and easiness on all terrains. Contact points remain above the snow avoiding unwanted catch and keeping an explosive pop.


  • 4000 Sintered Base  :

    The fastest natural base on the market + durable + absorbs wax quicker + keeps wax longer

Snow Binding Drake Fifty Black

The Fifty is probably one of the oldest binding in the industry. Its first version was released more than 10 years ago and today, the iconic Fifty remains a best seller. How come? It is clearly one of the best value for money you can get and we are fairly sure that every other binding manufacturer is having nightmares about the Fifity. Comfort, performance, style...this new version incorporates everything you need, including a small pricetag. Nylon reinforced aluminium basplate, MFC padded ankle strap and aluminium bucklery make the Fiifty's DNA. It was made comfortable, flexible and really easy to use. Drake say they are already preparing the binding's 20th anniversary, easy to understand why. 

What can the Drake Fifty Black do? 

If the Fifty was so successful it is also because it is suitable for most people and most terrains. The binding works like a dream anywhere on the mountain and is as versatile as it gets. You will appreciate its flexibility during your freestyle sessions as well as its lateral mobility enhancing press-tricks and tweaks. On piste, you can rely on its reactivity for carving with efficiency and linking turns with precision.  

Who is the Drake Fifty Black designed for? 

The Fifty is a partner of choice for a large crowd of riders. From beginners looking for progression to advanced freestylers looking for a bulletproof binding to destroy the streets with, the Fifty delivers.

Baseplate - Chassis

  • Delta Light  :

    Engineered with the highest quality aluminum and fiber reinforced nylon. This ultra light weight baseplate was designed to enhance response and board feel. The weight on this baseplate was dramatically reduced by removing heavy plastic and replacing it with an EVA dampening pad. Delta-lite has an all new contact pad placed directly on the board to better dampen and take riding to a whole new level. A versatile, all-terrain performance baseplate that’s fully customizable for superior fit.


  • Light Frame  :

    Good news for the lovers of lightness! The new Light Frame keeps the same benefits of a full frame highback without the weight! It's a perfect mix of torsion and response while dramatically reducing the weight of the highback. This guarantees that it is comfortable, forgiving with no compromise of the support. And no extra weight.

Straps - Buckles

  • Mac 5 Buckles  :

    Probably the quickest, most efficient aluminium ratchet in the market. It slides five ladder steps every crank and is ergonomically shaped for smooth ratcheting operation and release.

  • Convertible Toe Glove  :

    This revolutionary uretane strap ensures perfect fit over the toe of the boot. Its two flexible wings go around the toes,

    automatically forming a gapless bond between strap and boot, which keeps them secure in the binding. They can also be

    positioned in their original mode across the front of the toes.

  • Premium MFC ankle strap  :

    Comfort, response, and flex in a luxuriously constructed strap.

    New internal padding for extra flex and coheasion with boot and binding interface. Featured on the Fifty binding, which is the best Drake's “value for the money”.


  • Disc Classic  :

    The original Drake disc that mounts on 4-hole and 3-hole pattern without hassles. Don't waste time looking for ways to rig a custom stance. The classic gives you the option to personalize your drake binding setup with any board brand you ride.
