K2 Mindbender 120 (M)
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 120 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 speed alpine freeride boot. They have a stiff flex, they're responsive and bomber, and they inspire confidence on the most aggressive of backcountry descents. For a freeride skier looking for one boot to do it all, the Mindbender 120 is hard to beat.

One boot to do it all
Get sendy in the backcountry
Rugged, precise and intuitive. The Powerlock Spyne walk mechanism allows for 50 degree range of motion when hiking and an unforgiving, powerful connection while skiing. The mechanism can also be adjusted to customize the forward lean of the boot between 10-17°.
RIPCORD POWER CINCH STRAP:
Quick Release Pull Tab unlocks the cinch cam mechanism.
FAST FIT ENTRY:
Softer TPU designed into the instep area of Powerlite shell for quick and easy entry and exit.
FRICTION FREE CUFF PIVOT:
Low friction cuff pivot to ease range of motion.
Powerlite Shell - 1650 grams @ 26.5 - 4 different stiffnesses of TPU and optimal wall thickness come together for high performance and lowest possible weight.
The totally new 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. Rounded out with FastFit ease of entry and full TPU boot fitter customization capabilities, the Recon, Anthem, and Mindbender boot collections have raised the bar and proven that truly LESS IS MORE.
