We can't be certain, but we think these boots are called Ruler because it's what other boots are measured by. The Ruler boots offer so many benefits at such a great price, they're hard to beat. A DynoGRIP outsole acts with an added B3 Gel in the heel for superior cushioning. It's lightweight and even uses some recycled rubber making this lighter on the planet too. A LOCK-UP Cuff gives you increased heel-hold and helps give this boot it's low profile. The footbed lasts longer than most, absorbing shock for more than a season before getting packed out. As far as flex goes, they fall in the middle making them perfect for any situation and these have a really good fit between the boot and highback thanks to the GripLITE Backstay so they're more responsive than your average boot. To keep the heat in, a sleeping bag reflective foil is used under your liner while insulating Man Fur is added to the top of the liner and a snow-proof internal gusset makes sure the snow stays on the mountain and out of your boots. Plus, the liner uses Thinsulate™ insulation which is two times as warm compared to other insulation of equal thickness. Burton came up with a way to break-in your boots for you with their Total Comfort Construction so enjoy your first day in these as much as you'll enjoy the 100th day.
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.
3M Thinsulate Insulation - Twice as warm as other insulation of equal thickness, it provides warmth even when wet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
DynoGRIP Outsole - In addition to B3 Gel in the heel for greater cushioning, the DynoGRIP outsole features an extra layer of traction at the toe and heel for greater grip. Like every Burton Dyno outsole, DynoGRIP provides lightweight, durable cushioning that’s formulated specifically for snowboarding.
B3 Gel Sole Cushioning - Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down.
EVA Sole Cushioning - Lightweight and long lasting shock absorption to reduce foot fatigue from vibration and harsh landings. Keeps you riding longer and stronger.
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.
