Yea, I'm thinking the same thing. Just want to make sure if my friend wants the new straps.

Umm, probably not, I'm not convinced it's not gonna damage the toe of the boot, as the bit of strap that goes over the front of the boot is unprotected hard plastic so I feel it may scuff the leather a bit. Going away in a couple of weeks so should be able to confirm.

I went through the same thought pattern and decided it was not worth the extra $85-$110.

Called K2 and the guy said there were no significant changes besides appearance while the guy from Dogfunk said the toe strap was updated to be more secure. Normally, I would assume the K2 rep would be more knowledgeable but I'm not 100% positive.

ilikecoupons K2s are really good all-around bindings. I personally have them on my NS Evo and they are really versatile.
