K2 Gague 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The K2 Gague is a slightly softer mix up from the very popular Maysis boot in K2’s line at a little better price point. It offers a speed lace on the interior and a BOA for the exterior. They don’t really have a reduced footprint and run a bit on the bulky side but other than that they are good boots.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
Flex: A little softer than the Maysis and makes for a little more freedom of movement.
Comfort: K2 is just comfortable and we haven’t been in a K2 boot that isn’t. Every foot is different but the cush interior makes most feet happy.
Heel Hold: This doesn’t lock in your ankle/heel in as well as the Maysis because of the speed lace but the BOA on the outside still really does a good job making it close to excellent.
Adjustability: No real adjustability here. It’s pretty quick and easy but you can’t make the lower and upper different.
Flex Retention: K2 makes pretty long lasting boots and this has the high-end endo tech that keeps the boot’s flex going for a long time. You can get 100 days no problem with this.
Response: Not bad edge to edge and the K2 Gauge can work with a wide variety of boards.
Traction: Solid Traction and it’s good keeping you standing from an icy parking lot to walking over cold rocks on a peak.
Shock Absorption: Nice shock absorption too. You can keep your legs going for a long time.
