  • Dont Call Me Fat, Look at ME I'll Give You the Skinny

    Dec 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Flex, speed, confidence, stability, torsion fork (s)
    Cons: thin side cut

    Summary: I just sold my Fatty, at the beginging of this snow season and I was sad to see it go. It was two years old, and a great board. I rode a 154, the reason I purchased this board in the first place was because I wear a size 11 boot and if you board and have ... read more

  • This is a fattie

    Dec 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: thick board
    Cons: for big boys

    Summary: I got hold of this board because I rode to many rails on my 99 and it delamed. K2 sent me a new board any way and it rocks even more than last years. It's slightly stiffer so it holds turns better than last year's but is still really fun to ride. I ... read more

  • Fat Bob is Mediocre, at Best.

    Mar 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Extra width eliminates toe drag, landings are easy
    Cons: Freeride performance is not what it should be, edges are sketchy

    Summary: I tried the Fat Bob twice. I was disappointed with the overall feel and performance of the board. It was decent for stomping landings because of the extra width, but its freeriding performance was lacking. The Fat Bob's response was a bit sluggish, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Control,stability,and versatility
    Cons: strange looks

    Summary: I have a Fatbob snowboard my self and I love it. I am a relatively new rider and my Fatbob has been a joy from day one. It has great control a smooth ride and great stability. To sum it up in short, it is very smooth, very fast, and very fun. When I ... read more

  • The Cadilac of snowboards

    Dec 16, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: very predicable handling
    Cons: weight, lack of stiffness

    Summary: The other day I borrowed my best friends board because it had just dumped over a foot of powder in the cascades. He rides a three year old 159' K2 fatbob. He has highped it up so much I just had to try it. So up to the mountains I drove. Picking up ... read more

  • Great for powder days

    Nov 11, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A short board that handles powder like a 72
    Cons: Not very good for icy snow days due to width

    Summary: I first rode a Fatbob three years ago on a kind of icy day and was less than impressed. It was kind of flighty and required no small effort to manage tight turns. If this poor first impression had been my only impression I would likely hold a low ... read more

  • Decent board if you have big feet

    Nov 6, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: wide board is great if you have big feet, multi-purpose
    Cons: extra width makes turning harder, could be lighter

    Summary: I've rented the Fatbob a few times. It's a decent board, particularly if you have big feet and don't want your boots to stick over the edge. The ride is pretty decent, and as far as I can tell, they're pretty sturdy. I've asked the rental ... read more
