Leo Cocchiara tested this product
There's so much to like about the K2 Mindbender 120 BOA. The most obvious is that the BOA dial gives the ability to transition between a more comfortable midfoot fit which is amazing for when you're touring. Transitions back to the "ripping it" fit are quick and easy. No more messing with micro-adjustments. On top of that huge upgrade, you... Read more
Ideal for
  • Unbeatable dialed in fit in the midfoot making transitions through out the day a breeze
  • Great range of motion in the ankle with walk mode
  • High performance for both on and off resort
Not ideal for
  • The thinner hybrid liner did make the boot feel looser in the heel than it's non-touring counterpart, the Recon
  • Comes off a little softer than the 120 flex resort version

The Mindbender BOA 120 is a great boot for people who want a boot that can do well in both the resort and the backcountry. The 120 flex is a great in-between for aggressive riders who want a little bit more flex to be playful. The BOA system is extremely comfortable and easy to use, accommodating a large amount of...

Ideal for
  • Extremely comfortable without sacrificing performance
  • Touring/resort hybrid
  • Accommodates large amount of foot widths

  • Not the best at touring when compared to touring specific boots

I have had the Mindbender 120 in the past, and this new version takes everything that was great before and makes it better. As with every K2 boot, the fit directly out of the box is amazing. Super comfortable and ready to go. The walk feature is something that I think is great to have, regardless of whether you plan... Read more

Look cool!

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Feb 2, 2024
K2 definitely has some of the “cooler” looking boots in the game, however myself and a few friends had the same issue with the boot plastic cracking near the toe. Warranty was no problem, but I won’t be buying k2 boots for a few more years when they fix this recurring issue. Great boots otherwise, loved em for every day I had them (about 50 days riding). Boa system is super comfortable and had no issues for me.

The boa is amazing

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Jan 29, 2024
Just picked these boots up after coming off 12 year old Dalbello viper 12s. They were good boots but these are amazing. No more foot tightness issues and they are so much easier to get into. The boa allows for infinite adjustment and they fit great right out of the box after heat molding at my local shop. No new boot blues on the first day. I would recommend these to anyone

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.
