SOURCE: Single or double boa lacing for snowboarding boots?

Ok so I have had both the single and double boa lacing system boots before. the string on my double boa boot snapped once but that's because my boards edge was grinding into it when i rest it on my free leg on the chair so thats my bad. I thought that they were really comfortable when i was wearing them. Then last year I switched to Burton Ruler boots and OMFG are they good. They are wayy better than the boa system. The rules have an individual lacing system for the the foot and leg so you can tighten each section to your prefrence. They also feel really comfortable and are faster to get on and off than the boa. When I got them I was walking around my house for a few hours with the boa boot on one leg and the ruler on the other. The ruler was just as stiff as the other one, but felt a lot more comfortable. Its hard to describe but the boa boot felt like it was some kinda of mechanical contraption on my foot while the ruler had a very natural feel to it. Dont know if that helps but thats the only way I can describe it. Check out your local shop and try on both at the same time and you will feel the difference. I used to be a DC only person, but now I am sold on the Burton boots. Good luck.

Rapid lace system problems.. uneven lace


Hi All,

I had an uneven problem with the DC Siloh '09s. Not sure if it will cover all makes and models but I will explain how I fixed it.

Key for the instructions:
Numbering the laces from top to bottom 1-8, outer side of the boot = little toe, innerside = big toe, and on the two laces that lock on either side of the boot (4 in total) toe and heel lace.

1. In order to make the laces even again you need to unlock the heelside lace on the outerside of your boot, this lace controls lace 3.
2. Pull lace 3 using creating slack now that it is unlocked
3. Pull the slack through lace 4 and then 5.
4. Once you have slack in lace 5 unlock the toe side lace on the inner side of your boot.
5. Holding that same lace pull the slack through the locking mechanism until you are happy with the balance.

For moving slackness from the inner to the outerside the opposite approach applies.

If it is not clear, reply and I'll try and take a photo or post a video or something.

Cheers

Mikey

K2 Cinch loop leash on top of highback tore. What is the best way to fix it? Glue, saw on, both or order a replacement part. Or leave it alone since it does nothing after adjustment.


Glue and Sewing will just tear again. If you don't need it then don't worry about it, otherwise if it less than 12 months old you can apply for a new part under warranty

I am unable to loosen the laces on the exterior of the boot. Only the bottom half is loose and the top three laces remain very tight.....as if there is a knot inside the boot lining.


Sometimes if the boots have been well worn the lace will pill inside its tubing and become stuck. The best way to fix this is to untie the jammed lace at the bottom and then pull from the top to remove the damaged lace. You will also need to get a replacement lace from your Burton store to repair in reverse.

How to fit a snowboard boot?


" * Put on Snowboarding Socks or at least the thick socks that you would wear when you'll go Snowboarding. Do not try your Boots with regular socks. You might think it's irrelevant, but the added thickness of the socks matter a lot when it comes to the size and fit of your Snowboard Boots. Still, some people have strange misconceptions about socks. One of which is that you have to wear more than one pair of socks. This is certainly wrong since Snowboard Boots should fit snugly. It is all right if toes are grazing the ends of your boots, but make sure they aren't jammed. After all, when the boots break in a little they will feel more comfortable. * Loosen the outer (and inner if available) laces of the Snowboard Boot and insert your foot. Make sure the heel of your foot is locked in the heel of the boot. * Tighten the inner lacing first (again if available). Make it pretty tight but make sure your feet can still breathe and you don't cut off circulation. Next, tighten the outer lacing, again pretty tight, without killing your feet. * Walk around a bit and get a feeling for how well the Snowboard Boots are strapped around your feet. Make sure you don't feel any isolated, painful or stressful areas. * Now the most important test: strap into (or step into) a binding attached to a snowboard. Take on a riding position and move your weight to the front and the back of the board. Be sure the boots are securely keeping your feet on their place. Also, make certain that they are not slipping to the back or front, and that you are not experiencing painful or stressful areas on your feet. The Snowboarding Boots should make you feel both comfortable and securely strapped-in at the same time. * Lean forward. When you do this, make sure that your heel is not lifted, but that the entire boot, binding and board are making the forward move without your heel slipping out of the heel of the Snowboard Boot. If you do experience heel lift, your boot tech can add some fit aids like an Eliminator Tongue to reduce volume and increase responsiveness. This will also ensure that your heel is not slipping out of the boot. * When you try on Snowboarding Boots, take into account that as you use the boots more often, the inner bladder will get less compact because of the pressure that the bladder will be exposed to. Consequently, the Snowboard boots will become less tight as you use it more. Try to anticipate this trend by buying boots that are slightly tight. After the boots break in a little they will feel a lot better. Snowboard Boots come in all regular shoe sizes. Still, keep track of how different boots of similar sizes can vary in the way they hold your feet and ankles. Don't Buy Snowboard Boots because the internet or your friend says its cool, or your favorite rider has his/her name on it. What may feel good to one person may be excruciatingly painful to someone else. Make sure to try on many boots and only buy one that you are 100% sure of. Quality Snowboard Boots can last long, so you will want to put in more time and spend some money on this. Regardless of the Type of Snowboard Boots you intend to wear, choose the pair that fit your feet best. After all, you wouldn't want to be out of control and in pain when you ride down the slopes."

Snowboard boot type


"Snowboard Boots - Function and Types of Snowboarding Boots Good Snowboard Boots should give you maximum control over your Snowboard, protect your feet and ankles from the pressures of high speed turns, and keep your feet warm and breathing in all weather conditions at the same time. Boots come in many variations and Styles. There are Different Types of Snowboard Boots appropriate for the Three Riding Styles in Snowboarding. Currently, a lot of boarders prefer soft boots with Strap Snowboard Bindings, but step-ins are a convenient alternative. What follows are descriptions of the most common types of Snowboard Boots: Soft Boots Softboot Soft Boots are most comfortable and can be used with highback bindings and flow-in bindings. This type of Snowboard Boots allows for a large amount of movement in just about any direction. Consequently, soft boots are a must for pulling tricks since they are great for doing whatever you want. Soft Boots consist of two parts: an inner bladder and an outer boot. The inner bladder is padded to keep your feet warm, dry and protected from heavy impacts. It usually has its own lacing so you can tighten the inner bladder independently from the outer boot. The outer boot has a sturdy upper part that allows for ankle movement. The outer lacing allows you to further tighten the Boots. In contrast to Hard Boots and Ski Boots, Soft Boots are pretty comfortable for walking and even driving your car when you're not on the board. Soft Boots are currently the Most Popular Type of Snowboard Boots and are preferred by Freestylers and Freeriders. Although there is a wide range of Soft Boot Styles for both Freestyle and Freeride Snowboarding, the main difference in the different styles is in the degree of Boot Flex. Soft Boots with a stiffer upper boot and a higher cuff with a lace-up inner boot for enhanced firmness are Freeride Soft Boot Styles. Conversely, Soft Boots with loose, molded-foam inner boots for more flexibility are Freestyle Soft Boots. Hard Boots Hardboot This Type of Snowboard Boots is designed for precise control. Hard Boots support your foot, ankle, and lower leg firmly, making them best for racing and high-speed carving on hard snow. Hard Boots have a padded inner bladder similar to the ones in Soft Boots. The outer shell however is made out of hard plastic and is usually adjusted (or closed) using buckles or ratchet bails. The benefit of having hard plastic as an outer shell is that it gives riders more precision and power in edging movements. Hard Boots resemble the traditional Ski Boots. However, the Hard Boots have lateral mobility for the ankle. To provide some flexibility, hinges are often built into the ankles. The soles of Hard Boots usually have a mechanism that allows them to be connected to Plate Bindings. Hard Boots are often used with plate bindings by Alpine Racers who want their movement to be directly transferred from the Hard Boots and Snowboard Bindings onto the Snowboard. On the contrary, Hard Boots are not suitable for Freestyle Snowboarding tricks and maneuvers since they limit the amount of flexibility. This Type of Snowboard Boots is pretty specific and seriously lessens your freedom in choice. If you're planning to buy this, make sure you find an exact match between the Binding Mechanism and the Hard Boot Mechanism. Also, make sure you can flex the Hard Boot forward easily and smoothly so as to avoid mishaps during transitions. Hybrid Step-In Boots Hybrid boot These Snowboard Boots are a good choice for those who want the convenience of a strapless system. Hybrid Step-in Boots combine the flexible, soft upper part of Soft Boots and the sturdy hard soles of Hard Boots. They are used in combination with Step-in Bindings. People who are looking for a mix between the comfort and flexibility of Soft Boots and the control of Hard Boots will often opt for Hybrid Step-in Boots. As with Hard Boots, you will need to find a match between the Step-in Binding mechanism and the Boot mechanism. Before you buy Snowboard Boots, you must first decide whether you want to go with a Step-in Binding or a traditional Strap Binding. Remember, while traditional Strap Bindings will work with any non-Step-in Boots, Step-in Boots must be purchased together with their corresponding Bindings. Also, keep in mind that Hard Boot systems work best in harder snow conditions, while soft boot systems work best in softer conditions. "
