I'm a freerider and I do powder and moguls. I picked these boots because I wanted strong thick leather that was not going to bend or stretch and I wanted a lot of strength at the points the binding were going to hold. Lastly I did not want my ankles to jiggle a millimeter inside. It may be a little more work but I prefer tightening my boots up with laces rether than depend on a wire.
When i picked out these boots I did not even know they were DC. I was looking for cetian qualities.
Support and strength at my ankles - This boot gives it.
The only litlle downfall (but I consider it minor) is that the bottom of the boot has little grip and can be slippery, but I'm not there to go hiking.
I bought the grey

I live in Los Angeles and always have a season pass at Mt High but the mountain terrain melts quickly and I ride a cheaper gun because I know its going to get torn up.
Once or twice a season Ill get to real powder (Mammoth usually since Im in CA.)
Right now the board is in its sleep mode waiting.
I started skiing almost 40 years ago before snowboarding existed. I saw the snowboard appear early 80's and I followed. I've been snowboarding for almost 30 years. Probably because I grew up skiing, I prefer powder and moguls over x game play. I can see that my prefereces is what this board is for.
(i had to give it a rating to submit / it's just an assumtion but I know I'm right)
I got the 165, I want speed
