Speed Zone™ Lacing System - The Speed Zone™ Lacing System features streamlined, profiled lace guides for increased performance and improved durability. The system retains lightning fast lacing control by allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zones in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort.
New England Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of Burton's Lifetime Warranty.
S4 Shell Panels - Superlight and resilient. Strategically placed S4 shell panels evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound while resisting breakdown for consistent boot flex, season after season.
Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil Underfoot - This low-profile and lightweight foil underneath your liner reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.
Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology - 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.
Low-Profile EST Midsole Design - Lower profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST optimized soles lower your center of gravity and improve feel. Control your setup like never before without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra dampening B3 Gel inserts.
EST goes beyond bindings by drawing inspiration from the surf/skate heritage of snowboarding and giving you a more direct connection to your board.
Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber Outsole (30% Recycled) - Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight with 30% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.
Imprint 3 Liner - Heat-Moldable so whether you have funky cankles or a crazy sixth toe, rest assured that your feet will be wrapped in total comfort.
Focus Cuff Heel Hold System boosts heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle while riding slightly higher for increased response.
Velcro J-Bar Interface allows you to add or remove support to the boot’s heel pocket for a customized fit.
Inner Lace Lock makes exiting a cinch with the one-handed release tab.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Your feet and your friends will thank you for sure.
Lightweight Power Panels ensure that your boots provide the same flex, rebound and support on day 100 as they did on day 1. They’re built using memory materials, which even after being deeply flexed, enable both the liner and shell to snap back into their original position.
Sock Lock helps fight off sliding-sock syndrome so your ankles stay sweat-free.
Rad Pad is located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
Velcro Liner Closure provides legendary convenience with long-lasting hold for easy open and close action.
Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed offers enhanced arch support, improved response, and even more shock absorbing power.
ESS Support Shank adds support to reduce fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
Focus Cuff Liner Wrap - Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.
PowerUP Tongue - This dual density tongue offers greater response than the previous Thin Profile 3D Molded tongue with improved rebound and durability.
Snow-Proof Internal Tongue Gusset - All Burton boot tongues have been upgraded with an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
B3 Gel Sole Cushioning - Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down.
Total Comfort Construction - Get an instantly broken in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's new industry exclusive toe box construction eliminates the break in period for a fit that feels just as good from shop floor to season opener, and every day thereafter.
