Different Lacing Styles in Snowboard Boots

Lacing Systems

You may not think that a lacing style is an option you have much control over, but you several options to choose from. Each different closure style offers it’s own benefits and comfort features.

Traditional: Everyone is familiar with the traditional lace up closure system. This system is just like the one you find on your shoes. You simply pull up the laces to tighten, tie them in a bow and you’re good to go. The simplicity is unmatched and it is the most basic form of tightening system you will find on a snowboard boot.

Speed Lacing: Almost every brand of snowboard boots will offer some form of speed lacing system. The goal of a speed lacing system is simple, to get your boots tightened quickly, efficiently, and for them to remain tightened until you are done riding. Most systems involve some sort of drawstring, sometimes fixed to the tongue of the boot. After the user pulls up on the system to tighten the boot, the system usually locks into place so the lace cannot become loose while riding. Speed lacing systems also allow the user to get more leverage than a traditional lace system allows. This is especially beneficial for women and kids who may not be able to tighten their boots as much as they might like.

Boa: If you’ve ever seen snowboard boots with a cable lace and a dial at the top of the outer tongue, then you’ve seen a boot with a Boa system. If not, boots with a Boa lacing system use a cable instead of laces and a dial that can be turned to tighten the cable to the desired level. This system is very convenient, making it easier to tighten your boots and keep them tight until you pop the dial to loosen the cable.

This system is found on various levels of men’s, women’s, and kid’s boots. It is especially nice for riders who feel that they can never get their boots as tight as they want them. Additionally, it provides the added benefit of being able to tighten your boots without taking your gloves or mittens off. As your boot and liner loosen up throughout the course of a day of riding, you can simply reach down, give the dial a few turns, and then jump back on the lift for more runs.

The Boa Focus system is a variation of the Boa system and provides riders with the ability to tighten the boots in different zones. This way you can keep certain sections tighter or looser than others, offering ultimate customization. If you’re wondering about the durability or warranty if the system were to break, you need not worry. Boa is its own company, and its system is used on everything from shoes and hockey skates to horse boots. The Boa system is a proven one that is made to outlast various levels of performance. The system is also covered under the warranty of the snowboard boots and is easily replaceable if any problems were to arise.
