Description


The K2 Aspect snowboard-mountaineering boot is equipped with a Vibram sole that has plenty of grip for climbing. In appearance, he looks more like a hiking boot than as a traditional snowboard boot. It also features a back welt semiautomatic crampon attachment. From performance point of view the Aspect is quite impressive. With plenty of side support, he brings a lot of pressure on the edge, thus improving the climb on your splitboard in difficult terrain. At the descent, he feels very similar to a traditional snowboard boot, even if the distance to the board is a bit bigger because of the thicker sole. A reliable Boa system gives you a tight fit at the foot and provides good heel hold. The conventional lacing with metal eyelets is very durable and the tough leather will stand the test of time, season after season.

 

Available in sizes (US): 7, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, 13

    I bought the K2 aspect because I was stoked about a backcountry boot that was crampon compatible. Unfortunately the boot has been nothing but a huge disappointment.

    The first few days in the boots were absolutely brutal on my feet. The sole is uncomfortable to the point that tightening my bindings to any reasonable degree caused bruising on the sole of my foot.

    After 10 days in the backcountry the boots are showing an alarming amount of wear. The leather upper is wearing out extremely fast where my binding straps come in contact with it. The rubber toe box is also so soft that it gets pressed into the metal chassis of my bindings, which is cutting a hole in the boot itself. I have karakoram bindings and this did not happen to my old Salomon boots or the 32 boots that my buddy rides.

    Upon contacting K2 about the quality problems, I received the following response: "When you purchased the product, you entered into a purchase agreement with the dealer and not with K2 as manufacturer and supplier." I submitted a claim through the shop I bought the boots at and K2 rejected this outright.

    It is disappointing to see that such a large company cannot take responsibility for the quality of a $300+ product. This is without question the last purchase I will be making with K2.
