The Dispatch boot series was designed to complement the 22/23 K2 Dispatch skis (see this video with K2’s head ski designer for more on the Dispatch skis). All boots in the series are built around a ~100 mm last; K2 states that the fit of the Dispatch boots is comparable to their medium-volume Mindbender freeride boots, though the Dispatch reportedly has a roomier toe box.
Across the lineup, the shells and liners are fully heat-moldable via K2’s “Fast Fit” process, and the liner of the Dispatch Pro is built with a BOA tightening mechanism that’s intended to eliminate movement while ascending and allow for on-the-fly adjustments. Other notable features across the collection include K2’s “Switchblade” buckles, which can be locked forward while still lying flat to the cuff, to increase mobility on the ascent. K2 also built a new Honeycomb Boot Board, which K2 says is 15% more insulative than other boot boards.
What K2 Says about the Dispatch LT W:
“Brand new to the K2 Collection is the Dispatch LT W. This women’s specific boot was built to withstand your longest, toughest adventures. The Dispatch LT W weighs in at 1390g, has a solid 115 flex rating, walk mode boasting 60-degree range of motion, and Tourfit LT liner. Rest easy knowing that your feet are no longer something you’ll need to worry about with the all new Dispatch LT W.”
The Dispatch LT Series:
The Dispatch series of boots is comprised of five models, including two women-specific models, the Dispatch LT W and the Dispatch W.
The Dispatch LT has a stated flex of 120, while the women-specific LT W’s is 115. Otherwise, the technology is the same, aside from the women-specific models being available in sizes 22.5-27.5 (which is a “True 22” based on the boot sole length).
