There's a reason the K2 T1 Men's Boa Snowboard Boot is the go-to choice for heavy-hitting backcountry rippers like team riders Lucas Debari and Shaun McKay. It combines the reliability of traditional lacing on the shell and the speed and convenience of Boa Conda on the liner. A stiffer flex enables all-mountain domination with a snug, supportive feeling throughout that has been designed to greatly reduce boot breakdown.
Traditional lacing allows you to adjust the tightness in specific places so you can keep it looser for mellow pow turns and tighten it up when you're pointing it down. The Boa Conda liner lacing system adjusts the liner from the outside to securely lock your foot in place to prevent heel lift and foot fatigue, and Endo construction uses a urethane structure with flex zones that increase in stiffness toward the spine of the boot to provide additional support and a lively feel. An Intuition Pro Foam 3D liner molds to the shape of your foot for a comfy, custom fit, which improves response and board feel by making the boot feel like an extension of your foot.
The Vibram ProLite outsole is rugged and tough to ensure traction and durability whether you're crossing icy traverses mid-winter or scrambling up rocks for late season corn shredding. High-rebound Harshmellow cushioning in the heel and forefoot dampens vibrations for a smoother ride and absorbs shock to make landings softer and more controlled. Harshmellow is also featured in the dual-density EVA footbed for even more cushioning so your feet can take a beating and still get up for more.

Not as expected
So I read tons of reviews and looked at product info for this boot and pulled the trigger. Once I received this boot the first thing i noticed was how minimal it was. Looks can be deceiving so i put it on. As K2's 'stiffest' boot it came up lacking. I flexed the hell out of the boot immediately. It bows out and collapses in all the wrong places. I would not recommend this boot for serious snowboarders wanting a true big mountain boot. I know it comes with an intuition liner but I would be truly scared to trust the warmth of this boot on a serious 8-10 hour backcountry/ski day. I have never tried a K2 boot and this is most certainly not something i want on my foot. It is however very comfortable and cozy inside. This boot is probably much better for the beginner/ intermediate boarder. I have a pair of burton sabbaths from easily ten years ago and they are still more aggressive and stiff than these things. Sorry K2, not today.
