Very good but some potential drawbacks
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
After trying 20+ pairs, I finally found a pair that holds my heel.
The boa lacing system is amazingly fast. it takes less than 2 minutes to have both boots fully laced up. The dual boa is set for the inner boot and outer boot. making it very different from other dual BOAs were it adjusts the lower and upper part of the outerboot.
Adjustability is awesome. However I did find myself adjusting the boots almost every run. After each run, the top part of the boot would loosen up while the bottom part tightens, I had to crank the boa a little more each time to make the top feel tight again. After a few runs the boot is so tight it would cause foot cramps. I had to fully loosen the boot and restarting the tightening cycle. Something important to note here is that my heel never moved no matter how tight or loose my boots were.
The boot also has a very aggressive forward lean. making awesome for heavy, fast rips but somewhat uncomfortable when cruising slowly or walking from the parking lot to the lift. some people might not like the agressive forward lean.
Lastly, I got this boots in the yellow color. they got dirty really fast. There are black marks either from my bindings or my pants that my previous white boot never picked up even after 4 seasons.
