The Encore OG is an all-mountain boot designed for beginner and intermediate level riders who like a softer, more forgiving flex and the ease of a single Boa lacing system. A V1 UltraCush footbed is installed to keep you comfortable all season, even when you land flat off a big kicker, and the V1 Waffle Lug Outsole produces incredible grip and vibration absorption for an overall smoother ride. The heat-moldable V1 Liner features its own built-in UltraCush™ cushioning system for maximum comfort with added arch support and heel hold. If you're looking for a boot that can ride a little bit of everything and keep you comfy and cozy while doing it, go with the Encore OG.
