Rated5out of5byPrayForSnow40fromKiller boots!I desperately needed a new pair of boots last year because I was riding in a pair of crummy burton lexa's that was way too much of a beginner boot for me. I spend a lot of time in the trees and on moguls - so I wanted something pretty stiff so I could whip my board around super tight turns without having to worry about my foot moving around in the boot or the boot flexing around in my bindings. I'll tell you what - this boot is STIFF. It's fantastic. It's certainly not something I would recommend to a beginner (it's certainly not the most comfortable boot on the face of the planet) but man oh man does it PERFORM. Also, the boa system is great. I had to crank down on the burton speed laces with a skate tightener to get them tight enough, which took forever (and most of the time my fiance had to help), but all I have to do with the boas is pop the knob in and crank the dial. The boot is super lightweight too - which is great when I'm trying to swing my board around trees or hold a line in the moguls - the lighter my feet, the less tired I get! I don't find the boots uncomfortable and they're very warm so no troubles there either. I've always said that I wish snowboard boots were as aggressive as ski boots - now there's finally a pair that are!
