K2 Yetti Clicker Boots Self Destruct on First Outing....

Post by Campbell Web » Wed, 19 Feb 1997 04:00:00


Hi All,

Well last weekend I set off for Tahoe with my new K2 Eldorado 64" board,
clicker bindings and Yetti boots.  While the board performed above
expectations my boots fell apart on the second day.  Basically the sole
began to tear away from the boot, starting at the heel and working forward.

Has anyone else encountered or heard of this occuring to a clicker boot
before?

Yours Curiously,
Astro

I bought mine in November/96. Used them 10 times so far and they still
look as good as new except for the laces showing a bit of wear and tear.
I'm sure your case is rare. They're fine boots.

Actually, last weekend, after paying $70 and spending 6 hours on a bus,
my Yeti DESTRUCTED after only four runs.  Talk about getting the bad end
of the stick.  I went to the dealer I bought it from and demanded a new
pair or would pay the $40 to upgrade to the Couloir.  I will find out
what K2 will do sometime this week, hopefully I will get the Couloir.
However, the dealer said they were sold out completely, so I might have
to wait till next year for the new clickers, which I wouldn't mind.  I
don't want to go back to old bindings, because they are so unresponsive
compared to my clickers.  Oh well, let me know what happens with you and
your boots.

I've ridden mine about 20 days this season and they look brand new. The
only wear has been on the liner.  It has molded to my foot and is now
snug and extremely comfortable.  No problem here.

Yeah, they are great boots, but when the cleat rips out it sucks.  I was
just lucky that I was on a beginner trail at the time, cause I could
only turn onto my heelside.  Even so, I fell three times on the way
down.  I really like the boots, I just hope this is not a common thing.

I also have yetis and have noticed that they also are conforming to my
foot better as I ride more days, control and comfort are increasing with
no decrease in stiffness/support.  Quite a change from years of shitty
airwalk boots that killed my feet after 5 days of riding.  Sorry your k2's
blew out.  Take 'em to the shop and K2 should get you a new pair, their
warranty has always been 1st class.
