Don't know what the other guy is talking about, my formulas have held up very well and have never come loose. These bindings are solidly built and are adjustable in almost every way so you can dial in a precise feel matched to your boot and style of riding. K2 also makes my favorite toe strap, it really locks you in and makes the bindings highly responsive. I would definitely recommend these bindings!
Love the oakley lenses and goggles. after fooling around with cheaper goggles like spy's and smith's, i finally decided to buck up for some crowbars. the clarity of the optics and field of view is unparalleled and oakley provides a lens for any condition you will face. i have the black iridiums that came with the frames and i bought a HI yellow lens for the foggy and overcast days. I would highly recommend this combo, as it prepares you for pretty much any conditions you will face on the mountain. if you are looking for one lens that will do everything reasonably well, check out the HI persimmon. It has less light transmission that the HI yellow so it will be better on the bright days, but will bring out contrast better than an iridium lens will. Overall i would highly recommend Oakley frames and lenses!
the turbo dream is K2's rockered all mountain killer. I wanted a board that would give me control while ripping down groomers, effortless float in the powder, maneuverability in the trees and dampening on hard landings. I can confidently say after riding this board that it does all of these things very well. i opted for a 157W to maintain maneuverability, but i was worried about how it would behave in high speed carving. after testing it out on groomers my worries immediately disappeared. The edge to edge transitions are snappy and edge hold is strong. This board is very confidence inspiring when ripping through the groomers. This deck also kills it in the trees in the tight powder stashes and trails. with the 157 and the rocker technology, the board can turn on a dime, and is very responsive when you need to make split second turns and decisions when bombing the forest. the rocker tech also means this board floats effortlessly in the powder. this allows for a more centered stance when cruising the pow and minimizes the the back leg burn you would get with a cambered board. with the harshmellow technology added for this years turbo dream, you have another layer of absorption when you case those jumps or hit a drop with a flat landing. the harshmellow also helps when riding over crud and small children, as it acts as a shock absorber to minimize small impacts. this board is also very confidence inspiring when trying new tricks, especially spins. the rockered design makes it much more difficult to catch an edge on sketchy landings, and will inspire you to try bigger jumps and more spins.
