Best boots i have ever worn, rode them a little at a local Michigan mountain and now am riding at Mammoth Mountain, Cali. And they hold up to anything wither its the deep powder or the 80ft jumps. The stiffness is perfect with almost no movement. And as a ender i can wear one pair of thin socks and my feet are never cold.
With me living in Michigan and the economy the way it is i needed a relatively cheap board. This was the answer, it handles everything with ease, its a little bad in powdery conditions but other than that i can ride every thing from double blacks to the park.
