K2 2024 MENS ORTON SNOWBOARD BOOT
Back for its sophomore season, the K2 Orton has done precisely what we set it out to do; redefined the crossover of the freeride/freestyle snowboard boot space. Tested and vetted by K2 Team Rider Sage Kotsenburg, he pushed prototypes to their limits - riding lines in Alaska, going huge in the Jackson backcountry, and treating the entirety of Brighton Resort like a terrain park.
H4/M3 FOCUS BOA® FIT SYSTEM WITH TX3 LACING:
Impact-resistant, durable, and performance-driven, the H4 BOA® Dial ejects on severe impact and is easily re-inserted into the boot. The H4 dial controls the upper shell lacing, while the M3 dial controls the lower shell lacing.
TX3 is constructed from recycled PET with a structural core. This lace provides a softer, more flexible look similar to the characteristics of a traditional lace but the superior closure of a BOA® system.
FLEX ZONE UPPER CUFF:
The flex zone upper is designed to help retain a consistent flex pattern while reducing shell distortion when flexing.
ENDO™ 2.0 HEEL COUNTER:
An injected heel counter offers us the ability to provide a lighter weight snowboard boot with more precise rebound, and a longer life-cycle.
INTUITION® PRO FOAM 3D LINER WITH SPACEHEATER™:
Our most supportive liner, featuring a high-density Intuition® foam for added support and lined with breathable heat-reflective SpaceHeater™ technology for superior warmth and comfort.
INTERNAL & EXTERNAL J-BARS WITH CORED ANKLE POCKETS:
Adding J-Bars to a liner helps add structure and reduce heel lift, while coring liners out around the ankle bones reduces pressure points in sensitive regions.
S’CAFE™ COFFEE MESH:
A post-consumer recycled coffee ground mesh liner layer that controls odor and absorbs moisture.
3-POINT HARNESS LINER LACING:
The 3-Point Harness is a straightforward solution that doesn’t skimp on support. Instead, this system aims to optimize heel hold while providing ankle support and unrivaled stability to help reduce fatigue. A taller Pro Version is found on Orton and Format models for additional support.
HARSHMELLOW™ PRO INSOLE:
Harshmellow™ is a magical dampening system strategically placed to provide a more “quiet” feel underfoot, reduce vibration from impact, and reduce fatigue while snowboarding.
VIBRAM® V5 RUBBER OUTSOLE WITH HARSHMELLOW™:
Vibram® V5 Outsole features a full EcoStep rubber (30% regrind) with and Harshmellow™ pods under the toe and heel to reduce noise underfoot. The V5 Outsole is the perfect combination of sustainability and performance.
