A test team favorite. It combines piste-power and alpine-bred agility with lighter than average feel and a great touring range of motion. The Minaret 100 has been upgraded this season; the new liner features a more open toebox fit and the Syncro Interlock mechanism has been modified to work specifically with the boot’s shorter women's cuff. Testers noticed the liner change and responded by logging improved initial fit scores. They didn't seem to notice the cuff release change. We took that as a good sign since they had given it high marks in the past.

Characteristic of K2's 100mm boots, the Minaret slots as a snug-medium on the width tension spectrum. Our performance oriented team liked the fit though some with squared-off toe shapes and wider forefeet needed to fire up the hot stacks and cook the fully thermo-molded Intuition liner to make more room. The Minaret 100's flex feel and well-padded tongue earned praise and helped broker successful off-piste missions to pound on crud and crust.

Testers repeatedly said it skied stronger than its three buckles and 100-flex rating would suggest. Its solid, damp feel underfoot and torsionally stable edging moves made high speed, all-terrain hammering stress-free. Testers unanimously praised its confidence inspiring on-snow personality.
