The 2020/2021 K2 Anthem Pro is reviewed in the women's All-Mountain Traditional narrow category based on tests at Silver Mountain Resort & Mt. Bachelor Resort by the experts at America's Best Bootfitters, powered by Masterfit Media.

The Gist

The Anthem Pro answers our testers' wish list for an upgrade to last year's Anthem 110 LV--at a sturdy 120 flex with a rebuilt Pebax cuff and an all new, thicker, denser PowerFit Pro liner this is the performance based answer to the question: Can a boot be too comfortable? Believe it or not, that was a negative on the Anthem 110's report card. The Pro puts that notion to rest, literally squeezing our former doubters into happy submission--tight like a 98mm should be and ready to ground-pound the entire mountain, given it's guided by an aggressive skier.

The Fit

The Anthem Pro shares the same shell and cuff mold as the Anthem LV boot from last year, but slightly firmer and more snug everywhere due to the thicker, denser PowerFit Pro liner, which is also used in the Anthem 110's this year. Stronger against the shin with a better connection over the top of the foot, testers say of the new fit, which is more in line with other benchmark narrow boots in the category.

Performance

Testers say all the ease and auto pilot of the Anthem remains on-board, with just a little more throttle response and fore-aft stability--gone is the fold-over hinging of the cuff in gnarly conditions at high speeds, replaced by a solid hand on the tiller through all manner of junk. Testers say that the well-balanced stance remains unchanged, for good reason as the K2 angles are always a test team favorite--no surprises.

Cool Features

Testers like the straightforward attitude of the Anthem Pro: adjustable cuff, cam buckle power strap with cool Ripcord release, dual liner pull loops, cantable DIN soles and a moldable shell and liner. Pretty much everything you need.
