The K2 Formula has been around for a while – just check out this rather snazzy WL video from 2008 – but it’s not without good reason. It’s a do-all, go-anywhere model that has won over a wide range of riders, so if you’ve never checked it out before then this might be a good time.
If you want some forward lean on the asymmetrical highback, you can adjust it on the side of the heelcup. This means you don’t have the usual apparatus on the highback itself, which offers a small weight saving and is less likely to get damaged.
The ankle strap is a fairly chunky neoprene model that’s long proven its comfort and durability, while the toe strap has been overhauled to make it lighter and better-fitting than ever. As always, it’s easy to position exactly where the straps are mounted on the chassis, so you’ll get exactly the right pressure no matter what boot you use.
While the K2 Formula is far from a high-end, carbon-filled techgasm, it still performs well enough to be the go-to binding for Lucas Debari. If it can handle his lines, you can be damn sure it’ll handle yours.
