Boots and Beer European Tour

All new for winter 2018, K2 Skis introduces the new K2 Recon and Luv Boot Series, the lightest alpine boots on the market for men and women that still ski with all the power and drive of heavier boots. The new technology, called “Powerlight” is responsible for their incredibly low weight of 1650g per boot, resulting in the best skiing, lightest weight boots ever produced.

And we’re really excited about it. The K2 Boots and Beer event series will visit over 7 countries and more than 50 retailers to show off our rad new boots.

Featuring four different stiffnesses of TPU and optimized wall thickness, the POWERLITE Shell achieves a paradoxical balance of lightweight agility and power. The stiffest PU is found on the Powerfuse Spyne for flex control and power transfer, and a slightly less stiff PU on the Lower Power Chassis for immediate power transfer, torsional rigidity and wear resistance. A medium PU is used for the shell body to wrap the foot and dampen vibrations, while softer TPU materials are used for the Fastfit Instep providing a quick and easy entry and exit. Using 100% TPU materials ensure ability the 100% heat mold every boot.

When it comes to women and the four all-new LUV boots, the shells additionally feature a Women’s Calf Adjustment to quickly find the optimal fit for both comfort and performance for a variety of calf muscle sizes. Furthermore one boot out of each series (Recon 120 & Luv 100) contains a heat version for more comfort on cold days.
