The K2 Holgate is a rugged, stiff-flexing snowboard boot built to push boundaries and is stacked with premium technology.
It all starts with construction. A reinforced rubber toe is abrasion resistant and helps give that extra little bit of grip for the binding toe strap. The heel counter was engineered using our Endo™ 2.0 construction, a urethane heel counter that allows us to change the flex and rebound of the boot without adding extra materials. This extends the boot’s lifespan and adds a layer of protection to guard against binding abrasion.
The K2 Holgate snowboard boot’s lacing system comprises two BOA® Fit System reels. The exterior H4 Coiler BOA® Fit System reel helps to provide a stable and secure closure throughout the boot. The BOA® reel located on the lateral side of the shell controls our Conda™ liner lace system, giving you maximum control over the fit of your boot while keeping your heel locked to the bottom of the footbed for power transfer when you need it most.
Wrapping the foot, we’ve placed our most supportive liner, composed of multiple densities of heat-moldable Intuition® foam. This open-cell foam means that it can be re-molded time and time again to achieve the perfect fit throughout the boot’s life. The liner is lined with our breathable and heat-reflecting Space heater™ material, keeping riders warm and dry all day long. And lastly, we’ve integrated a 95% post-consumer recycled coffee mesh from SCafe™ into the liner to help eliminate unwanted odor after a long day on the hill.
Underfoot, the midsole combines a lightweight and stable EVA and Harsh mellow™, a proprietary technology that helps absorb impact, increase damping, and provide a “quieter” feel while snowboarding.
The outsole on the Holgate snowboard boot is our ALL-NEW Vibram® V5 outsole, providing unmatched traction in the boot pack and is made using at least 30% recycled rubber through the Vibram® Eco step program.
THE H4 COILER BOA® FIT SYSTEM:
The H4 Coiler BOA® Fit System focuses on the instep of the boot. This feature generates unrivaled heel hold and creates a secure fit for quick edge response.
CONDA™ BOA® LINER LACING:
Proprietary liner lacing system that harnesses the power of BOA® to provide superior heel hold and support.
VIBRAM® V5 RUBBER OUTSOLE:
A liner designed for comfort and warmth, from start to finish. It features reflective heat blanket panels that work to trap heat in and keep cold out. These reflective heat blankets work alongside heat moldable Intuition® foam, internal J-Bars, and 3D molded, dual- density EVA insoles to keep your foot comfortable and warm all day long.
REINFORCED RUBBER UPPER CUFF:
Reinforcing high-impact zones of the snowboard boot with rubber makes the boot more durable and abrasion-resistant.
ARTICULATING UPPER CUFF:
Articulating cuff upper helps reduce shell distortion when flexing forward into the snowboard boot.
ENDO™ 2.0 CONSTRUCTION:
A K2 Snowboarding exclusive, Endo™ Construction, allows us to alter a snowboard boot’s flex, response, and rebound without adding extra materials (extra materials = excess weight). By replacing additional materials with an injected heel counter, adding an extra rebound is as easy as a formula change. In addition, it helps us to provide a more consistent flexing, longer-lasting snowboard boot.
HARSHMELLOW™ VIBRATION DAMPING:
Harsh mellow™ is a magical dampening system that replaces industry-standard foam dampening materials. Harsh mellow™ is strategically placed to dampen vibration underfoot to provide a “quieter” feel underfoot, reduce vibration from impact, and reduce fatigue while snowboarding.
3D FORMED DUAL DENSITY EVA FOOTBED:
Dual-density EVA foam provides contouring cushioning and support to support snowboarding all day long
