The K2 Kwicker is the re-introduction of the old click in bindings that use to be in K2’s line a while back. I thought click in bindings were gone for good but they are back. Yes I’m not amped on this resurgent tech and never liked the old click in system. Yes it’s better than the older K2 click in system but you still don’t have the performance that you get with a traditional strap binding and boot. You sacrafice a lot of performance to keep up with your skier friends to own this system. Make them wait an extra 45 seconds so you can have more fun on the mountain on the way down. You also only have one boot option. Despite my negative opinion of the Kwicker system I can see how it works for people with medical issues or for people who are willing to sacrifice performance for an extra run or 2 in a full day’s ride.
The Rating system factors in the Stark boot that you need for the system to work.
