K2 Recon/Anthem Pro

2021 All-Mountain Resort Boot Review

Brand: K2

Model: Recon Pro & Anthem Pro


Number of Buckles


  • CATEGORY: All-Mountain Resort
  • FLEXES: 140 (Recon, pictured above), 120 (Anthem, pictured below)
  • LAST: 98MM 
  • PRICE: $700

K2 took the original Recon design and injected more stiffness via a new liner, pebax cuff, and removable power plate to create the Recon Pro. The brand also steps up the women’s-specific Anthem line with a 120 flex, equally all-black Pro version. Both Pro models keep all of the features that make the Recon line great: 100-percent heat-moldable shell and liner, a terrific weight-to-performance ratio, bootfitter-friendly adjustment features, and super-easy entry and exit.
