Powder - - BOOTS - —Matt Hansen

The K2 Re­con will make you want to hit jumps, ham­mer a mogul field, and go full throt­tle down your fa­vorite groomer. Its low weight makes it in­cred­i­bly ag­ile and quick, while a ro­bust and pro­gres­sive flex means you can crank high-speed turns with­out it buck­ling un­der pres­sure. K2 de­signed the boot with a thermo polyurethane (TPU) blend of four plas­tics that are op­ti­mized in dif­fer­ent parts of the boot. For in­stance, the in­step has a soft plas­tic for eas­ier ingress and egress, while a stiff chas­sis and spine keep things strong. The liner is heat-mold­able and feels fat and cushy out of the box. So while it fits nicely af­ter a good bake, the po­ten­tial for an early pack-out is sig­nif­i­cant. Over­all, K2 knocked it out of the park with this light­weight, pow­er­ful boot.
