Can't get the lower boa lace to release

I can pull out the nob to release but the tension won't release fully only partially. It will crank down to tighten.

    I too have this problem. I bought the boots took them home and tried them on at home. I thought awesome I'm ready to go. Went to mountain and couldn't get my foot in one because the lower boa would release tension. After 45 minutes, I got my foot in and felt like it was being crushed. I gutted it out and struggled all morning until it released some tension on its own. Boot still has some tension in lower boa and this was the first time I used them.

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

Size 13 black 2008 DC torch boa lace on the lower half is jammed....any idea what i can do?


Hello. you will have to use a pair of pliers to remove the lace and then use an ice pick or similar tool and a hammer to reshape the hole that the lace goes through. If you go to a hardware store they will have cold steel punches of various sizes that may be useful to you.

My sons thirty two snow board boot with the boa system wire broke on the slopes. Are there replacement wires for this system?


the website is called www.boatechnology.com once at the address click on the sports tab then select snowboard then scroll down to thiry two. then you will see a list of boots the focus and the prospect ect. lets say he has the focus so you would click on the wording "get replacement lacing and reels" in the upper right hand corner for that specific boot. the rest is up to you to fill out the info.

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.
