Imagine every great thing you know about the K2 Maysis, and then imagine it with a handful of upgrades, that’s what the new 2016 K2 Maysis Plus Snowboard Boot is all about.
Everything loved about the Maysis is there; the BOA Conda that snuggly wraps the Intuition Pro Foam 3D Liner, the Endo Construction still allows the boots to flex consistently throughout it’s lifetime, and of course Harshmellow underfoot dampening.
The Maysis Plus upgrades include a wide range a tech. The Vibram V4 Outsole focuses on durability, weight reduction, grip, and a classic lug design. Although the Maysis Plus only has one BOA external tension system, it works and feels as if it has two BOA dials because of the Tailored Zonal Fit customization. On the lateral side of the shell the Tailor Zonal Fit system has three different tension notch setting; one with a lower tension bias, one for neutral tension, and one for a upper tension bias.
With a slightly stiff flex and response the K2 Maysis Plus, with all of it’s customization and comfort, is a boot that can master the whole mountain. Reaching the next level couldn’t be easier, especially if your ride in the Maysis Plus.
When a product is backed by a rider growing into legend status like Tim Eddy people should take note, and that’s exactly what’s happening with the 2016 K2 Maysis Snowboard Boots. Literally people are writing reminder notes to themselves to get the K2 Maysis.
Staring as one of the best selling Double BOA boots ever produced the two BOA dials have different functions; the 3D Molded Tongue‘s BOA controls the upper and lower tension whereas the lateral shell BOA controls the internal Conda Linder Lace System. The K2 Maysis boots are built to last the test of time with an exoskeleton like Endo Construction that gives the same medium flex on day one as it does on day 1,000. Harsh landings are no match for the Marshmellow impact resistant comfort pods that are embedded into the outsole.
All mountain freestyle riders can rejoice together because the K2 Maysis Boots provide more than just comfort and convenience, they provide lasting memories and pure joy.
The new 2016 K2 Raider Snowboard Boots are designed for great board feel with thin Rubber Lite Outsoles that charge hard from peak to park.

The K2 Raider leads the way into a new dimension of riding and you’ll want to be a part of that ride.
The lightweight 2016 K2 Ryker Snowboard Boots are a top contender for the best bang for the buck BOA boot in the market.

Underneath the feet the K2 Ryker’s Phy-Lite Outsole embedded with Harshmellow dampening offers a board feel that’s unmatched.

Customization is the name of the game and the game is called the new 2016 K2 Thraxis Snowboard Boots. With independent upper and lower zones controlled by two BOA dials and an internal BOA Conda liner lace system there’s three dials that offer complete comfort.

If you take a look at your old boot lines you are sure to find that they are stitched together. This Year Burton decided to change the status quo and build their new liner with a 3D molding process. The New Infinite Ride Liners provide a more consistent fit out of the box and and increased rebound and cushioning that wont break down or pack out. The new lines can be found exclusively on the 2014 SLX, ION, Rover, and Supreme.

Rebounces is an added layer of PU within the shell of the boot. That enhances overall comfort by adding cushioning in all the right places.

3. New Power Tongue:
Most of the new 2014 Burton boot has been upgraded to a New Dual Density Tongue. Which gives you more rebound and overall durability. like with all the thin profile 3D molded tongues it is available in three flex options based on the model of the boot. If you looking for the ultimate in response make sure to check out the new thermoplastic-reinforced Power Up Plus Tongue on the 2014 Driver X.

Can you believe you’re seeing a sneak peak of the 2013 Thirtytwo gear? Below are our 2 favorite series/collaborations Thirtytwo is offering for the 2013 season; the Joe Sexton Signature Series and the Dirtytwo (Thirtytwo X DGK) Collection. Both are on opposite ends of the style spectrum – they cater to Thirtytwo’s diverse range of riders. If you’re hesh or thug Thirtytwo has something for you. Think about combining the two. Imagine a baggy Dirtytwo jacket and tight pants – it’s called EmoYo’.
2013 Thirtytwo Joe Sexton Signature Series
What’s every Midwest snowboard kid’s dream growing up? To get sponsored and have a pro model. Joe Sexton isn’t a kid any more, he’s a grown man sitting ontop of the snowboard industry. Thirtytwo saw Joe’s potential marketability and gave him not only a pro model piece, but multiple pieces. Here it is ladies and gentlemen the Joe Sexton Signature Series.
Thirtytwo DGK Collection
Bridging the gap between snowboarding and skateboarding isn’t done by wonder boy Shaun White, it’s done by Thirtytwo and it’s Thirtytwo DGK Collection. For all the kids living in urban area with tons of rail, ledge, and drop options Thirtytwo desided to collaborate with skateboarding’s bad boys, Dirty Ghetto Kids. If you like Aesop Rock, tagging bathroom mirrors, and Cab 270-Front Tail-Back Nose (Change Up)-Pretzel Out combos you’ll love everything Dirtytwo has to offer.
How in the world did Thirtytwo and DGK come together for a collaboration? Through the love of skating that’s how. Everyone has a different style, or at least should have. For the hesh dudes Thirtytwo offers the Joe Sexton Signature Series and for the thugs they offer the DGK Collection. The DGK gear fits a lot bigger than the average pant and jacket combos, but when you’re a Dirty Ghetto Kid, that’s all that you need. The DGK branding is top notch, the functionality is perfect, and the tech is right on the dial.
DGK Shiloh 2 Jackets
What is big, baggy, and full of features? The Shiloh 2 Jacket. The long length keeps your seat dry on crash landings and on long chair rides. It’s the idea piece of the DGK Collection and screams for respect.
DGK Blahzay Pants
Shoe string isn’t a very wise supportive device, but make you look cool like the dudes at the local skatepark. If the shoe string doesn’t keep your Blahzay Pants up, no worries, there is belt loops too.
DGK TM-Two Boots
Thirtytwo riders have a team boot favorite; it’s called the TM-Two. One thing that could make the TM-Two better is a collaberation with DGK. Not very many companies put as much detailed effort into their product, but Thirtytwo does. DGK for live.
How in the world could a kid from Minnesota get as good as Joe Sexton? With tons a dedication and the willingness to always have fun. Joe got picked up a few years back by Thirtytwo and has gradually worked his way to the top of the snowboard industry. His exposure meter is off the charts, he rides for some great companies, and Thirtytwo let him design his out kit. That’s right, Joe has pro-model boots, jackets, and pants.
If the Joe Sexton Signature Series feels a little to hesh for you, check out the DGK Collection, it’s pretty big.
Joe Sexton Unleaded Jackets
The Unleaded Jacket is pretty straight forward and simple. This 50’s gas station employee inspired thick canvas jacket helps you do it all – shred, school, chill. STI Repel keeps the water out and the quilted liner keep you warm.
Joe Sexton Kermit Pants
With a classic 5 pocket denim fit how can you go wrong with the Kermit Pant? You can’t. Medial leg cuffs slide easily over your boots and with gloves on the zipper fly opens with a blink of an eye. Be warned, there is no insulation in these babies, think about adding a baselayer underneath.
Joe Sexton The Maven Boots
So you thought the 2012 86 FTs were skate inspired? Wait until you ride the The Maven Boots! The cuff is low and soft, the outsole is thin, and Thirtytwo laced them up. The first person to Treflip with these gets an internet high five.
