Default 2011 K2 Bindings FREEVIEW!!!!5!! (and maybe boots)

I believe all the models have the heel foam going all the way down, along with beefier foam (maybe not, but whatever)

Auto models + Formula get the new highback rotation/forward lean screws... basically no more problems with the highback loosening up the screws from folding it up and down all day


The new Formula

ankle strap is very 390ish (soft)
highback is softer than the previous highback, still asym (and actually the same height; as in I put them side by side)
no more FLAD on the back; it's built into the new tool-less highback rotation screws





Cinch line gets the feature creep




Auto Everywhere

new LABIA LIPS toe strap on all Auto models
all Auto models get the same tool-less highback set-up as the new Formula
Auto Highback is stiffest, Auto Ever next, Auto Uprise (Formula Auto) softest





2011 Lineup:

Freeride:
Auto
Cinch CTX (gets the Auto highback; basically a step-in Auto)

All-Mountain:
Auto Ever
Indy (same as 2010 Formula)
Cinch CTS (Indy highback, same as 2010 Cinch CTX)

Freestyle:
Auto Uprise (all-new)
Formula (all-new)
Sonic (same as 2010 Indy)
Cinch CTC (Sonic highback, same as 2010 Cinch CTS)
Mach/Mach II (unlisted, I think this will be the same as the 2010 Sonic)

also the new Hurrithane, which I believe is the 2011 Formula + soft asym airframe highback design (something like that but I wasn't really paying attention) ugly as fuck


nothing really special about the boots, same as always, T1 however is fucking bananas with the stained leather - brown model looks like a cowboy boot (motherfucking yeehaw)

The formulas look fantastic. I may have to wait for them rather than getting a pair of 390s this season end. Although, how do those Labia lips work? Without something to prevent them from separating, I can see them coming loose/sliding off after a few runs.

I'll have a proper full K2 Preview up soon... with boots and boards (biggest change to boots is the new Conda Clutch liner speed lace (fast as fuck)

a bunch of stuff has been renamed, less confusion over last year (Auto lineup loses the Auto name, Auto becomes Drone)


in the meantime, fuck off with the tall highback shit




Hurrithane is the 2011 Indy with a super soft urethane highback




boots

So next year the evers will be all mountain and the autos will be freeride? Wasn't it the opposite this year?

Any idea if K2's expanding the canted foot beds beyond the Auto line (or, what ever they're calling it this year)?

3degree cantbeds are on the cinch ctx, cinch cts, ever (auto), drone (auto), uprise (auto), formula, cinch tryst (girl), and agogo (auto)(girl)

the new toe straps on the auto series are independently adjustable
