    K2 Mindbender Boots

    Seem to have a lot of good going on.
    All PU shell, Good Lock Mechanism.
    Din or Gripwalk Soles. Not much info out there other than marketing, anyone try them at intros last year.

    Anyone have experience with Recon on which it is based.

    Did a search on both, didn't find much.

    Was just looking for these. Haven't tried on but was told they are wide.

    Have worked on a couple pairs of 130's for employees.

    Shell is PU, cuff is Pebax, walk mode looks like a knockoff of Atomic's XTD external lever (that's a good thing, IMO), boots ship with GripWalk soles. 98mm fit (130 and 120) isn't exactly low volume, but not as big as the 100mm Recon fit.

    Didn't ski it, but quality looks first rate.

    I feel like everyone’s walk mode is converging to an ultimate solution the way everyone is driving an suv.

    I cant speak on the MB boots but I have the recon 130 s and put 50 days on them last season. I have a narrow foot and the 98 width fits me perfectly. Lost a buckle and a ladder this year but they were replaced immediately by the local rep.
    Im not sure if it's as stiff as other 130s but im 6'4 240 lbs and with all that leverage I never once felt like I was overpowering the boot. They are light, comfortable( I did have footbeds made duh) and I was in no hurry to take them off at the end of the day. I evened toured in them a bit with some old fritschis and really didn't have any issues. My 2cents

    MB130 did not feel as stiff as the recon 130. Didn’t get the MB on snow however.

    I can't get over how far K2 boots have come from the early models...The MB looks great. I had it on my foot at a shop, but would like to see how it is on snow!

    Can you compare fit to other boots, especially Nordica ProMachine or Atomic Hawx Ultra?
