Boots K2 x Sean Pettit Mindbender 130 burst 2021
About K2 x Sean Pettit Mindbender 130 burst 2021 ski boots
When introducing the Mindbender collection in 2018, we made it a goal to convey our vision of freeriding through a cohesive product assortment. We knew that skiing cannot just be one thing. The word “Freeride” holds different meaning to skiers in Vermont, Whistler, Chamonix, and Niseko. We saw the necessity to move forward and continue to push skiing, and the gear built for it,to new levels.
So, we put our heads together to find a bit of that heritage flavor and called in the big dogs! Working alongside long-time Team rider Sean Pettit to bring this project to life, we looked to the iconic Merlin 7 from 1998 for a nod to the Salad Days. We wanted to move forward without losing sight of where we came from, and we’re pretty damn proud of the outcome. We proudly present the Mindbender 108Ti and Mindbender 130 Boot as envisioned by K2 and Sean Pettit.
Built with a heat-moldable Powerlite shell, Friction Free Cuff Pivot, tech fittings, and a burly 130 flex, the Mindbender 130 is the versatile freeride boot you need for both chairlift-assisted and human-powered endeavors. When it comes time to venture beyond the resort, flip the Powerlock Spyne into walk mode and appreciate the impressive 50-degree range of motion as you power uphill to your next objective.
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.
Rugged, precise and intuitive. The Powerlock Spyne walk mechanism allows for 50 degree range of motion when hiking and an unforgiving, powerful connection while skiing. The mechanism can also be adjusted to customize the forward lean of the boot between 10-17°.
Fast Fit Entry
Softer TPU designed into the instep area of Powerlite shell for quick and easy entry and exit.
Friction Free Cuff Pivot
Low friction cuff pivot to ease range of motion.
Grip Walk Outsoles
Removable and interchangeable ISO 9523 alpine rockered soles collaboratively designed to work with Marker’s Grip Walk 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. Preinstalled.
