SNOWBOARD BOOT BUYING GUIDE
Ready to shred in brand-new boots? Here's everything you need to know to choose your perfect pair of snowboard boots.
There are three main types of lacing system:
- Traditional lacing offer the best personalised fit as you can tighten the right areas by hand; however, they can loosen during the day and aren't easy to use when wearing gloves.
- Quick-pull lacings are faster than traditional laces, and feature zonal lacing to tighten the forefoot and ankle independently, but many boarders prefer the full control that lacing gives you.
- BOA lacing sustems offer a fast, easy, micro-adjustable fit using a ratcheting dial and cable. BOA is easy to use with gloves, can be done with one hand, and often features zonal tightening in double or even triple systems.
