The K2 Orton has down exactly what we set it out to do; redefine the crossover 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.
Ability: Advanced / Expert
The Orton is absolutely packed with tech. It starts with a foundation of a zonal closure system and articulating cuff to reduce shell distortion and provide consistent heel hold. The shell lacing features the H4/M3 Zonal BOA® Fit System with TX3 BOA® Rope Laces. The upper shell lacing powered by an H4 Coiler BOA® dial and the lower shell lacing controlled by an M3 BOA® dial, allowing the rider to independently control the upper and lower zones of the boot for the perfect fit.
The exterior uses bulletproof HDR Premium Synthetic materials - this helps to resist abrasion and make for a longer-lasting snowboard boot. Inside, our Intuition® Pro Foam 3D Liner can be heat molded to the exact shape and size of your foot and ankle. We’ve added our heat-reflective SpaceHeater™ material to the boot to help keep feet warm and dry.
Underfoot, K2’s all-new ultra-rugged Vibram® V5 Outsole provides industry leading traction and durability in all conditions and terrain. This Vibram® rubber compound is make up of at least 30% recycled rubber. Better grip, better for the environment. The V5 rubber outsole is wrapped around a midsole made up of a traditional EVA and K2’s proprietary Harshmellow™ material - helping to absorb impact, increase damping, and provide a more “quiet” feel while snowboarding.
