The Encore Pro boots are a step up from the OG version with more comfort features and a slightly stiffer flex for more experienced, more aggressive riding. The shell uses a dual Boa® closure system for on-the-fly micro-adjustability, and the cozy UltraCush liner and V2 components will keep your feet warm and comfy so you can ride longer and ride harder without fatigue.
