K2’s Recon and Luv series and Salomon’s S/MAX line were certainly different than any other boot tested in their respective categories, but the fact that they are easy to get on, easy to customize (the shell and the liner get baked at your local shop) and skied so well put them right up there with the old guard brands of the ski boot world. Forget punching and grinding, just bake ’em and go.SHOWN: K2 Recon 130, K2 Luv 110, and Salomon S/MAX 130 CarbonWAXWax on, wax offHow many times a season do you hear “I have the wrong wax,” or “these skis haven’t been waxed in years!”…

how we test

What do you get when you mix 21 of the biggest ski industry influencers, 142 models of new skis, and a week of skiing Deer Valley’s phenomenal terrain?
