I've been boarding since 2000 and skiing since 1969. I'm 63 yrs and fortunate to still be on the snow. I've been on clickers from the begining. I've rehabed boots in the past and still have a new pair in the wings. I like the convienence of a step in binding. The main issue I've had with clicker boots is they are too soft in the forward flex. I'm VERY excited with the new Stark boot as they are much stiffer in forward flex AND the dual BOA system is so user friendly being so quick to secure and release. The inner bladder is very comfortable and design of the outer shell should last a while with the one piece wrap around construction. I'm looking forward to the response and ride!
I have been riding "Clickers" since 2004 and haven't looked back. Over the years the only source for replacement boots was off of eBay. No more!
I got these a half-size up and are a perfect fit. The double BOA is amazing. I'm in & out of my gear before anyone else around.
These fit great with "Clicker" style flat bindings from the 90's-early 2000's. Hard butters, ollies, high speed carving...I have never come unattached to the bindings.
Throw in a Dr. Scholls gel insert for best comfort.
I can click in on the fly when exiting the lifts and even click in on the chair, where allowed, and sail past all the noobs sitting/bending down to strap in. I get 4-5 more runs in a day because of this. I even smoke people with Flow bindings.
I will grab the newer "Kwicker" bindings eventually because I want the Harshmellow and canted footbeds.
I'm more of a groomer/off-piste rider, but I don't shy away from riding these in the park on smaller boards. Just loosen up the outer boa for more flex and you're good2go.
Thanks K2! P.S. Make more style/color options for Kwicker.
Although these are very similar to the old Clicker boots and bindings, they are not the same. I found this out the hard way. I thought they would fit right into my clicker bindings. They do not. They are nearly identical to clickers, but the new Quickers are slightly smaller. When I couldn't figure out why they wouldn't click in properly, I decided to measure them against my old Clicker boots. The contact points on the boots are slightly further apart on the old Clickers. It's about 1/8" difference. These Quicker boots won't click in properly. Too bad. I thought I'd found a nice new pair of boots. I'm going to try to modify the rear contact point by grinding it down to match the old boots. It's super hardened steel though, so it's not an easy task. I hope I can make them work.
I've been boarding sense 1993, I've ridden strap in binding, clicker and burton step in. People get all up in the air about only true boarders ride strap binding, friends don't let friends use step in binding. Wear what you like, use what works for you! Love the K2 step in system, looking to try the new boot for weight, flex and all mountain use.
These brand new boots, designed to work with the new K2 Kwicker Binding System, work fantastic with the old school K2/Shimano Clicker Bindings... They are a little rigid in the back, which is great in some situations, definitely a little rough for walking about in... However, if you loosen em up with the Boa Conda lacing system, it does make em a little easier to move around in.
was wondering if the stark work with the old clickers with a hi-back?

Best Answer:Yes, but you wouldn't really get any utility from the high-back on the binding since the boots already have a high-back built into the rear of the boot. If you bought the Starks, I would pull/cut the high-back off the bindings if that's an option or buy the new Kwicker (non-splitboard) binding. Old non-high-back clicker bindings also work with these boots.
I use the Starks with the old K2/Shimano Clickers without the back... I imagine they would still work with the high backs... I did call K2 to confirm the dimensions were the same, so as long as they are still in the same part of the boot, they should work with the high back Clickers too.
These boots do not fit all my flat clicker bindings. That being said, I have a friend in Alaska that rides the Starks with highbacks. He needs the highjack to hold on to when he is hiking. I didn't think they would work, but I have seen him ride with Starks and highjack clickers
No. These boots did not work with my original Clicker Model SB080 and did not work as designed with my Clicker Pros - After multiple attempts, the lever on the binding needed to be forced down and locked manually. I can't see this as a realistic solution on the mountain.
