The K2 Yeah Yeah is a fun well made binding for jibbers or freestylers or those that like s mellow ride with a soft flexing high back. The K2 Yeah Yeah offers up a smooth fun predictable ride.
Flex: Pretty soft ans twisty.
Adjustability:Very adjustable and very easy to dial things out for your boot.
Comfort: Very comfortable and minimizes pressure points.
Heel-Toe Response: Not bad for the soft flexing high back and it has a nice smooth feel. It’s still no hard charging freeride binding but it’s fine in the park.
Tip-Tail Response: Pretty good for K2’s line but there is not much of a reduced dead spot. The urethane base plate helps though and it butters well enough.
Boot Support: The K2 Yeah Yeah doesn’t have much support because of the soft ankle and its all about a skate style feel. It’s almost like you don’t have a high back.
Ratchet System: Not the high end but pretty good here.
Shock Absorption: Pretty shock absorbent and good for bad landings….well as good as bad landings can be.
2013 K2 Yeah Yeah Review
If you like the high back of the k2 Agogo LTD but don’t care much for the quick strap tech they call “Auto” then you might really like the traditional but well made Yeah Yeah. The addition of Urethane really softens up the bindings high back and makes the ride much easier in the Jib park. Many bindings do a lot to reduce the dead spot that most bindings create under foot by removing as much of the base plate as possible but the Yeah Yeah’s base plate doesn’t have that much removed from it. It makes for more of an old school ride that is smooth, comfortable and predictable. Also there is canting in the base plate to make riding easier on your hips, knees and ankles or at least so they say. Some love this tech and others don’t. Most of us at the Good Ride really like it but to each it’s own.
