I sincerely hope that Burton has improved this model from last years nightmare. The speed zone lacing system they use is pure junk. This lacing system has busted 3 times within months of each other. What's worse is you can't fix it yourself without some "special tool" that doesn't seem to be available to us consumers. I'm getting to the point where I really feel Burton owes me for 3 days on the mountain for this inconvenience.

On the plus side I do love the heat-moldable liner. However dealing with this issue and getting it so it fits just right also costs money.

I threw down a huge chunk of change for these boots and am extremely disappointed. I hate to write such a negative review concerning a Burton product but I would look elsewhere.

It doesn't provide as much protection as other bags available but if you pack clothes around your board it seems to work. I've used it 4-5 times flying this way and have had no problems. Make sure that the bag doesn't exceed whatever weight limitations the airline you are using has in force.

If you are happy with Ride, you should stick with it. I'm like you, I buy gear every 5 or so years and have stuck with the same company since the 80's. Ride makes a great product. I do recommend getting bindings with toe caps. (straps that cup the toe end of the boot as opposed to cinching it directly over the top of the boot.) I can't tell if this model has that function but you could probably convert it. I've used a toe cap for the last 4-5 years and would never go back.

I think you should stick with the 157. If you want it for an all mountain board then I assume you will be hitting some powder. I don't care how much rocker is in this board. I weigh 154 and my all mountain boards are anywhere from a 156 to 159. You want more float when you are not in the park. Where do you ride? People in the east tend to stick with shorter boards because they don't get the powder that we do in the West. In any case, I would still get the 157. Especially if you like to lay down a carve getting to your destination. Hope this helps.
