The K2 Mindbender 130 LV is truly a do it all boot that offers out of the box comfort. I knew when I first tried these on that they were going to treat my feet well. Even after the "break in" period my feet felt comfortable, warm, and locked in. These boots feature 4 buckles, a power strap, and... Read more

This boot is fantastic for that skier that will be doing some touring AND resort riding. Lightweight enough to feel like a touring boot, (especially with a wide range of rear travel in walk mode) but stiff enough to feel like a downhill only boot. When touring, there isn't a second though about weight. While pointing the sticks downhill,... Read more
Ideal for
  • This boot is stiff, and responsive, without being demanding.
  • Lateral stiffness gives this boot a Downhill prowess despite its light weight.
  • Tours beautifully. Powerlite plastic is just that; powerful and light.
Not ideal for
  • LV (Low Volume) isn't quite sincere. This is the most generous "Low Volume" I've ever put on my foot
  • When removing the boot, the liner tends to come out with the foot, especially after a long day of touring.

Solid boot. Bad liner

Originally posted at on Feb 11, 2024
Booting solid, not as stiff as I was expecting. Liner ripped in multiple spots in year 2 so I would not trust them to last.

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 is Amazing!

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.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
