Product details from EVO:
Medium Flex – A balance of quick edge engagement and a more forgiving, playful feel. Great for all-around riders.
Wishbone Upper Cuff – The Wishbone Cuff defies convention, combining power and freedom into one. Picking up where the Crossbone Cuff left off, it features Jumper Cables on both the medial and lateral sides for twice the snap, rebound, and life without sacrificing the high tweakability of a softer boot.
Flex Notches – These strategically placed notches minimize shell distortion and allow for smoother, more fluid toe and heel flex.
Total Comfort Construction – Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to day 100.
1:1 Medium Flex PowerUP Tongue – Burton offers 1:1 lasting on every boot. It means every half and full size shell, tongue, and out sole offer a precise fit that is not as common as one would think. Drop your loot on a Burton boot and you won’t be stuck with the slop of a mismatched shell and liner. PowerUP tongues feature additional dual-density material for rebound and durability.
GripLITE Backstay – Creates a snug interface between the boot and the highback. Made of rubber, the Backstay also shaves weight off the boot. The result is a more direct energy transfer from boot to binding to board for reduced rider fatigue.
Imprint™ 3 Liner – DryRIDE Heat Cycle™ Lining | Focus Cuff Heel Hold System with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock | Plush Cuff 1.0 (women’s only) | Lightweight Power Panels | Velcro® Liner Closure | Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank and Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating | Heat-Moldable
DryRide Heat Cycle™ Lining – Warmth and wicking are two key traits for on-snow comfort. Burton’s breathable inner-lining technology utilizes interwoven thermally activated carbon thread to capture, radiate, and reflect body heat inward to keep feet warmer while also wicking heat-robbing moisture outward. Look for varying amounts and performance level of each liner.
Focus Cuff – Boosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle than the Lock-UP Cuff for increased response.
Velcro® J-Bar Interface – In the heel pocket of the inner cuff for added support.
Inner Lace Lock – Quick’lock design keeps your heels locked down all day. Exiting’s a cinch with the one’handed release tab.
Lightweight Power Panels – To ensure a consistent flex from day 1 to 100, Burton Imprint™ and Life liners feature strategically placed Power Panels that, even after being deeply flexed, return to their original position.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating – Antimicrobial coating on the lining of the boot fabric keeps your boots from creating their own mini-ecosystem of stink by preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Heat-Moldable – Burton’s Imprint™ liners can be ridden right out of the box. For a custom fit head to your local snowboard shop to use Burton’s EMU heat-molding system.
Dual Zone Boa® Coiler™ Closure System – Quick, easy, and effective lace adjustment is only a dial away with the trusted dependability of the Boa® Coiler™ brand closure system. Available in single and dual zone setups, the system quickly loosens or tightens with simple twists of the Boa® dial.
Exclusive New England Rope Laces – American-made, natural fiber ropes power Burton’s Speed Zone™ systems. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes’ laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.
Level 2 Molded EVA Footbed – EVA Footbeds are lightweight, long-lasting, and absorb shock.
ESS Support Shank – This is an added support feature to help soften hard landings.
DynoBITE EST® Outsole – Features strategically placed rubber patches for extra traction and durability at the forefoot and heel. Like every Burton Dyno outsole, you’re provided lightweight, durable cushioning that’s formulated specifically for snowboarding. 10-15% recycled rubber content depending on model treads lighter on the planet, too.
Strategically Placed Rubber Traction Pads
ReBounce Cushioning – This Burton’exclusive brings cushioning closer to your foot than ever before by placing it within the shell of the boot for an added layer of impact protection that sits directly below your foot. Added warmth and consistent performance in cold temperatures is achieved by wrapping it in a heat’reflective material that keeps the cushioning soft and effective.
EST® Optimized – EST® goes beyond bindings by drawing inspiration from the surf/skate heritage of snowboarding and giving you a more direct connection to your board. By eliminating the ramp angle of your outsole, EST lowers your center of gravity, improves board feel, and creates a more surf/skate-like feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening ReBounce and B3 Gel Inserts.
Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil – This low-profile and lightweight underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology – You know what they say about guys with big feet, right? Big socks. 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.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset – All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping your feet warm and dry.
