Park/Freestyle - Softer park boots will have better mobility for pressing/tweaking while mid to stiffer park boots offer more response and support when stepping up to the bigger features. Hot laps through the park, jibbing a box here, blasting a method there, back to the chair and all over again.
Articulating cuffs can add more comfort and a truer flex while zonal top and bottom lacing is often preferred for a more customized feel depending on your riding style. Some park boots often have dampening added to help reduce impact from big landings.
Beginner/Casual Riding - Great for entry level riding or for those who just want to cruise the hill, play around and have a no-worries good time on the mountain - generally soft to mid flexing boots designed for mobility and comfort without breaking the bank. Perfect for beginner to intermediate riding, smaller riders, or just getting out there and having fun.
BOA dials or speed lacing found on certain boots can add ultimate speed and convenience, perfect for getting you on and off the mountain with ease.
Soft▼Stiff - Mid-Soft Flex - a slightly mellow, playful flex good for smaller riders, jibbing the park, casual riding, or for those just starting out
3M Thinsulate Insulation - Twice as warm as other insulation of equal thickness, it provides warmth even when wet.
Crossbone Articulating Upper Cuff - Stiffer shell on the outside ankle for power, softer shell on the inside ankle for tweakability.
The Crossbone Cuff balances the free-flexing mobility of an articulating cuff with the lateral (outside ankle) support of ultra-light Jumper Cable carbon stringers on the outside ankle only (the same stuff found in Burton's high-end boards.) The benefits of more ollie pop and pressing power associated with winged Hi-Backs are brought to the boot itself, resulting in the ability to power up the tip and tail with less effort, and still get tweak friendly freedom.
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.
Imprint 2 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.
Lock-Up Cuff offers a super low-profile inner cuff that carries the laces across the forefoot, and around the ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.
Inner Lace Lock makes exiting a cinch with the one-handed release tab.
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.
Velcro Liner Closure provides legendary convenience with long-lasting hold for easy open and close action.
Level 1 Molded EVA Footbed is a lightweight and long-lasting. EVA cushioning helps minimize impacts so you can charge harder for longer.
Man Fur Lining - Awww now come on, what man doesn't like a little fuzzy Man Fur hugging his feet? Soft and comfy material on the inside of your liner also makes it easier for sliding your stank feet in and out of your boots.
Lock-Up Cuff Liner Wrap - This super low-profile inner cuff carries the laces across the forefoot and ankle for ultimate heel hold with effortless entry and exit.
Asym Speed Hooks - Allow for quicker, easier lace engagement and pulling power with redesigned hooks that help lock laces in place.
Articulating Boot Cuff - Allowing the upper and lower zones of the boot to flex independently creates fluid forward motion, minimizes shell distortion, and maximizes heel hold and response.
GripLITE Backstay - Snuggling up the fit between boot and hi-back, the GripLITE rubber backstay also shaves weight and enhances grip. The result of GripLITE is a more direct transfer from boot to binding to board for reduced rider fatigue.
Medium Flex Thin Profile 3D Molded Tongue - Adjusting the profile of the tongue's thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the forefoot, and reduces shell/liner stack up for improved comfort. Offered in soft, medium, and firm flexing options based on the ride of each boot.
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.
DynoLite Outsole - Reducing weight by 20%, Burton's DynoLite outsole offers superior cushioning, improved board feel, and consistent support throughout. This exclusive design is made entirely of a cushioning compound specially formulated to withstand repeated impact and freezing temps for longer lasting shock absorption.
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.
1:1 Boot Lasting - Every Burton liner is factory molded with the "Last" inside the shell to ensure a superior, out-of-box fit with precise, liner-to-shell integration. 1:1 lasting means that every half and full size liner gets a matching half and full size shell and outsole for the best possible fit with the smallest possible footprint.
1 Year Warranty - Covered under manufacturer warranty for 2 years from the time of purchase. Warranty includes manufacturer defects in materials and workmanship only and DOES NOT cover damage due to normal wear and tear, damage from resting your board's edge on your boot while on the chairlift, or damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility.
