The Hanford starts with a foundation of a zonal closure system and articulating cuff to reduce shell distortion and provide consistent heel hold. The shell lacing features the H4/M3 Zonal BOA® Fit System with TX3 BOA® Rope Laces. Inside, you’ll find r full-wrap 3-point harness surrounding K2’s Pro Foam 3D Liner with Intuition® foam, and it all sits atop our This Grips!™ dual-rubber compound.
Lacing + Liner
H4/M3 ZONAL BOA® FIT SYSTEM: Impact-resistant, durable, and performance-driven, the H4 BOA® Dial ejects on severe impact and is easily re-inserted into the boot. The H4 dial controls the upper shell lacing, while the M3 dial controls the lower shell lacing.
Construction + Materials
TX3 BOA® ROPE LACING: A softer lace made specifically for snowboard boots that provides a more even fit over the body of the boot shell versus a steel lace.
INTUITION® CONTROL FOAM 3D LINER: The most versatile liner in the K2 Snowboarding line, the Control Foam 3D liner features both internal and external J-Bars for the perfect blend of comfort and structure.
THIS GRIPS!™ RUBBER OUTSOLE: Our proprietary rubber compound delivers excellent grip and durability on all terrain types and is integrated with Harshmellow™ foam to dampen chatter and vibration.
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.
3D FORMED EVA FOOTBED: Provides anatomically correct cushioning and support and is built from rigid EVA foam.
