Your days of squeezing into a skin suit and cramming your feet into a pair of plugged race boots may be long gone, but that doesn't mean you want to ski a couple of rando noodles when you venture into the backcountry. K2 understands your plight, so it built the Men's Pinnacle 130 LV Alpine Touring Boots with a stiff 130 flex, a tech and alpine compatible sole, and a walk mode that becomes completely rigid once you're ready to ski your line. This low volume version of the Pinnacle 130 has a narrow 97mm last, but maintains all the uphill capabilities as its 100mm last cousin.The Pinnacle 130 is unique in its ability to switch between alpine, tech, and alpine touring bindings in a single day, without having to ever switch out the soles. Integrated tech fittings let you step into your lightweight touring bindings when you're headed out on a long tour, while the included DIN compatible soles offer consistent and reliable release values with your go to alpine bindings when you plan on spending your day shredding the resort. The Pinnacle also stands apart from traditional touring boots thanks to its Synchro Interlock skiwalk mode, which utilizes an interlocking design instead of a bolt or hinge, reducing play between the shell and cuff once the boot is locked into ski mode. Once in walk mode, the Synchro Interlock system offers plenty of cuff rotation to access those more hard to access backcountry lines and long bootpacks inbounds. The Pinnacles comes with a thermo moldable Intuition liner and are fitted with DIN compatible TPR soles lugged Vibram soles are sold separately, and can be attached if you're planning on hiking wind hammered ridge lines where the extra traction would be more than nice.
