It meets my expectation
Ordered these for my son as a present. He hasn’t had a chance to use them yet but they look good so far. Price and shipping were great. Free shipping to Alaska and arrived in 4 days. Once they arrived I realized they wouldn’t fit my sons’ board/bindings (Defiance Jr.) that he had outgrown. A quick call to Level 9 and they upgraded my order per request to the Horizon board/bindings/boots package. Shipped the very next day (free shipping again) without any hassle. Picking up board/bindings tomorrow from PO. Will write separate review. Above all, product(s) are good quality for low price. Customer service is outstanding!
They're nice boots and I like their lacing mechanic- it makes it very easy to get on and off. However, the boots very readily become loosened after just a couple of runs down a slope and the quality of the boots may last a season, maybe two if you are very intentional and careful.
7 Degree Forward Lean:For rookies and easy riders.
Flex Index 1:This boot has a very forgiving flex that is ideal for beginner and intermediate riders.
Tongue Pull:A loop of fabric at the top of the tongue helps in putting on and removing the boots. Pull it forward and to the side and your foot should slide right in.
Removable Liner:This boot comes with a removable liner. Removable liners have the advantage of being easier to dry than non removable liners, and the disadvantage of usually being a little larger than a non removable linered boot of the same size.
Boa Lacing Technology:The awesome new setup that removes the only thing that sucks about snowboard boots: the laces.
The Boa system is laced cables of aircraft grade steel (no it doesn't add weight) that take the place of laces in keeping your boots tight. To tighten you simply push in the Boa housing button (to lock it in place), righty tighty turn the dial until you get the snug fit you desire. To remove the boot, you just pop (pull) the housing button and stretch out the tongue.
If it comes into your head how much nice this is at the top of the lifts on a cold day when you need to tighten up the boots, you are right on. We always recommend Boa boots. Competition level riders still require laces because they need to have the boot so tight it cuts off circulation, for the rest of the world the Boa system is the way to go.
Liner Lace Lock:This liner features a lace lock to speed up the process of putting boots on. Just pull the lace tab upward until snug, then slide the lace lock down into place. It will ensure the boots stay snug throughout the day. When the day is over, just pull up on the lock knob and slide the foot out. Piece of cake!
Comfort Cuff:The Comfort Cuff delivers added flex on the medial side of the boot, providing added comfort and a more natural flex.
