There is a large selection of snowboard boots to choose from in this day in age, with a variety of lacing systems. How do you know which lacing system is right for you? More than likely any will do, but each lacing system has its owns strengths to boast. I will discuss the various options that are available and my personal opinions on each lacing system. remember, these are just my personal opinions. at shoreline every employee rides a different lacing system!
Fast Track gets you onto the mountain without fumbling with traditional laces, tightening the upper and lower zones with the quick pull of each lacing handle. Not only does this system simplify the lacing process, but more importantly, it adjusts the boot's flex to your personal riding style and local terrain. Growing in popularity because of its simplicity and quickness Fast Track lacing should not be overlooked. Some of our top shredders rock the fast track system with no complaints. check out the the ThirtyTwo Lashed XLT
There are two main types of boa systems – Single Boa and Double Boa. Single boa systems have one knob for the whole boot. Double boa systems have one knob which controls the lower boot and one knob that controls the upper boot. Really easy to get them tight. Just a matter of twisting the knob, especially good for those with weaker grip. Easy to tighten when fingers are cold and even while wearing gloves. With the Boa system you are less likely to experience too much heel lift. especially with the Ride lassos which are known for eliminating heal lift!
Tried and True, this lacing system is either loved or hated. Loved because of its simplicity and ease to replace the laces. Sometimes hated because there is so many other lacing system with technology built into them that can make your lacing experience much quicker. Many freestyle riders choose this traditional lacing system because it allows a good flex through out the boot. Check out the ThirtyTwo TM-2 one of the most sought after boots of all time ridden by many pro snowboarders.
The best of Both worlds? Traditional lacing on the front of the boot and Boa cables on the inner liner. Traditional lace allows for easy replacement and ease of mind knowing there is no room for technology to fail. While laces are doing there job on the exterior the Boa cables are keeping your heel locked down. with the reliability of the laces and heal lock when you need it on the inner liner. This lacing system is the authors favorite choice in the line up. Check out the ThirtyTwo Session Grenier boot for a great Hybrid experience.
Shoreline of Tahoe is happy to announce that the 2017 Ride Triad Boots are in and ready for action, Slow and easy goes the race, Each year the ride designers make head way into the Snowboard boot market. This year's boots are better then last years and the progression goes on.
