Flex Rating: 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – A medium-stiff flex for responsiveness and support.
Total Comfort Construction – Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.
1:1 Firm Flex PowerUP Tongue – For greater rebound, durability, fit, response and support.
GripLITE Backstay – Creates a snug interface between the boot and the highback. Made of rubber, the Backstay also shaves weight off the boot. The result is a more direct energy transfer from boot to binding to board for reduced rider fatigue.
Focus Cuff – Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.
Imprint™ 3 Liner – Focus Cuff Heel Hold System with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock // Focus Cuff // Lightweight Power Panels // Sock Lock // Velcro® Liner Closure // Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank and Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating // Heat-Moldable
Heat-Moldable – Burton's Imprint™ liners can be ridden right out of the box. For a custom fit head to your local snowboard shop to use Burton's EMU heat-molding system.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating – Antimicrobial coating on the lining of the boot fabric keeps your boots from creating their own mini-ecosystem of stink by preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Sock Lock – This directional fiber lining allows your feet to easily slide into place and stay in place all day.
Dual Zone Boa® Coiler Closure System with Lockdown Lacing – A Burton-exclusive upgrade to Boa®, Lockdown Lacing increases heel hold by integrating three distinct lacing zones with a single crankable dial. Tightening all zones (upper, lower, and Achilles) both rapidly and simultaneously results in a secure and consistent fit throughout the boot with greater hold in the heel pocket for an overall more comfortable feel.
New England Rope Laces – Offering warrantied-for-life performance, these natural fiber ropes equal a more natural flex and feel for greater all-day comfort.
Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed – EVA Footbeds are lightweight, long-lasting, and absorb shock.
ESS Support Shank – This is an added support feature to help soften hard landings.
Vibram® EcoStep™ Outsoles – Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a 30% recycled construction.
Low-Profile EST® – EST® goes beyond bindings by drawing inspiration from the surf/skate heritage of snowboarding and giving you a more direct connection to your board. By eliminating the ramp angle of your outsole, EST lowers your center of gravity, improves board feel, and creates a more surf/skate-like feel.
B3 Gel – Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil – This low-profile and underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology – You know what they say about guys with big feet, right? Big socks. Shrinkage™ reduces the boot's overall footprint one full size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker -- never suffer from toe drag again.
Rubber Ice Spikes – Soft and grippy with stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn't an option.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset – All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
