The K2 Recon 130 MV GW Ski Boots are a super stiff, high performance boot for serious inbounds riders who want the most power transfer, response, and adjustability out of their footwear. The shell and liner are fully heat moldable, and the boot comes with high end features like a cinching Power Strap and preinstalled GripWalk outsoles. For such a burly resort boot with this kind of flex rating the Recon 130's are crazy light, weighing in at just 1700g, so you don't even have to change out of them on your way to your après ski ballet lesson. Or maybe you do; we know a lot about skiing but ballet remains a mystery.

Shell Materials & Design
PowerLite Shell – The shell is purpose-built to result in the best skiing, lightest weight boots ever produced. Made with four different stiffnesses of TPU and optimized wall thickness profiling, the Powerlite Shell achieves a paradoxical balance of lightweight agility and power. The resulting boots weigh in as some of the lightest alpine and freeride on the market, yet they ski with all the power and drive of heavier boots.
PowerFuse SpYne – A rear co-injected “Y” shaped design that adds strength and power to the Energy Interlock, the PowerFuse SpYne maximizes fore/aft flex efficiency and lateral stiffness for sustained performance and responsiveness in all terrain. Because of the SpYne, K2 is able to optimize materials in the cuff and shell, eliminating excessive vibrations in rough terrain.
Energy Interlock – A rivet-free technology that integrates the cuff and shell, putting less stress on the boot's material and produces a smoother, progressive flex.
Shell and Cuff – TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane)
Dual Cuff Alignment – Dual sided cuff alignment for +/-2 degrees of cuff adjustment.
Cantable Outsoles – Advanced level of adjustability to customize stance angles. Shims can easily be placed underneath the outsoles to cant the boot to a skiers needs.
Forward Lean – 12˚ / 14˚ (with removable Power Wedge)
4 Aluminum Micro-Adjustable Lightweight Buckles
45mm Ripcord Power Cinch Strap
GripWalk® Outsoles Preinstalled – Removable and interchangeable ISO 9523 alpine rockered soles collaboratively designed to work with Marker's GripWalk binding system for better grip and added comfort when walking and standing in boots, but doesn't compromise the power transmission and release function between the boot and binding when skiing.
