K2 Passage 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The K2 Passage is a well made mid flexing boot that could work for a wide variety of riders. It’s got a lot of K2’s higher end tech at a reasonable price.

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:  Very middle ground flex that’s supportive but also allows a little freedom.

Comfort:  Very comfortable.  K2 does a good job fitting peoples feet and reducing or eliminating pressure points.

Heel Hold:  The BOA speed lace combo does a good job locking in that heel.  It’s a little step below K2’s double BOA but it’s still way up there in the locked in the excellent category.

Adjustability:  No real adjustability here. Both the inner and outer lacing systems do the same thing. If you like upper and lower adjustability look somewhere else.

Flex Retention:  K2’s “Endo” technology holds the flex for a long time so this is a great boot if you want to get 100 days a year.

Response: Nice balance between being forgiving and somewhat responsive.

Traction:  Not bad here but nothing special.

Shock Absorption:  K2’s Harshmellow is pretty shock absorbent and protects your ankles, knees, and hips rather well. It’s not super cushy but it’s not like a skate shoe either.

On & Off Ease: Incredibly easy off and very easy on as well.  K2 is the best with this because all you have are 2 systems to quickly undo to get out of your boots.
