No, you haven’t mistakenly clicked into our ski review section. Yes, venerable ski maker K2 is now in the boot business and it made a strong debut at our test. Over and over again our test team commented on the Spyne 110’s impeccably balanced stance. In an era where stance angles in some boots are leaking toward the back-seat, this set-up had our testers dialed from the get-go and loving what it did for their skiing. Another common comment was the lively feel this punch-above-its-class boot provided on snow. It is snappy and reactive with a tuned-in sense underfoot. It’s energetic, fun and solid on snow through a variety of different terrain and at all speeds. Testers placed this 100mm newcomer on the snug side of the category norm, partly due to the LuxFit Intuition liner's fuller EVA construction. Some testers noted fit inconsistencies pre-cooking but the fit greatly improved after liner molding. Tester Comments: "K2 nailed the geometry. The position is dialed to go at it full force." "Really like the not-so-upright stance and traditional feel of these."
