K2 MINDBENDER 100 ALPINE TOUR SKI BOOTS - 2021Regular price $499.99
Sure, cutting ten thousand switchbacks up a refrozen sheet of ice is fun, but we all know that the real reason we all ski tour is for the way down. That's not to say you want gear that slouches on uphill performance, but if your boots makes the ski down any less fun, than what's really the point? Luckily, we have access to gear like the K2 Mindbender 100 Alpine Touring Ski Boots. Deigned to be super lightweight, with an effective and intuitive walk mode, these boots are money on the skin track. But the real value here is that when you lock them down, you're riding a full-on alpine freeride boot. They have a medium flex, making them responsive, reliable, and approachable for backcountry, sidecountry, and inbounds descents. For an intermediate freeride skier looking for one boot to do it all, the Mindbender 100 is hard to beat.

PowerLite Shell – The shell is purpose-built to result in the best skiing, lightest weight boots ever produced. Made with four different stiffnesses of TPU and optimized wall thickness profiling, the Powerlite Shell achieves a paradoxical balance of lightweight agility and power. The resulting boots weigh in as some of the lightest alpine and freeride on the market, yet they ski with all the power and drive of heavier boots.
