K2 Darko 2014-2015 Snowboard Boot Review

The Details:

K2 is one of the few brands that develops boards, boots and bindings, and does it all well. The Darko is no exception and remains a team favourite after several years in the line.

One of the reasons is that it never compromises what people love about it, but adapts well with the times. This year the changes are subtle, the main upgrade being the ‘Street-Light’ outsole. Exclusive to the Darko, this offers a huge amount of traction (perfect for negotiating icy steps at a handrail) while keeping the weight down with an innovative combination of two different types of rubber. The flex is just stiff enough to tackle big features without losing the ability to stay reactive and spontaneous on smaller stuff. With a classic lace on the outside and a Boa wire on the liner, getting the correct fit and tightness is easy, and the ‘Control Foam’ lining keeps heel-lift at bay.
