K2 MINDBENDER 130 ALPINE TOUR SKI BOOTS - 2021Regular price $699.95
In case you haven't heard the news, mullets are back. And the K2 Mindbender 130 Alpine Touring Ski Boots are one good looking mullet of a boot. With a 130 flex and a downhill-oriented PowerLite Shell, these things are all business up front. But flip that switch in the back, and you'll see where the party is at. Made with the rigid body of a burly freeride boot, and the freewheeling, human-powered ascending soul of a backcountry wanderer, these Mindbenders give you the best of both worlds. The walk mode is simple and effective, the boot construction is super light, and these things tour like a dream. But the bottom line is that they're aggressive, high performance' boots that expert skiers will be happy crushing resort laps in all day.
