Based off of Burton's Imperial Boot, the Burton Photon Boa Snowboard Boot dials-in a precise, ultra-powerful fit with its Dual Zone Boa closure along with New England Ropes for a more natural flex and feel. A stiff flex provides support and quick response for navigating technical terrain. The Dual Zone Boa with Lockdown Tech provides a truly custom fit on the slopes by independently tightening over different zones. Lockdown Tech eliminates lift along the Achilles and heel, ensuring you're locked into the boot when you're carving at high speeds, charging steeps, or linking powder slashes. The Imprint 3 liner features a J-Bar interface for extra heel hold, and a thermo-moldable liner provides a custom fit without nasty pressure points. Cushioning your feet from cliff drops, choppy snow, and high-speed vibration, the boot's B3 Gel Cushioning dissipates impact and vibration from fatiguing your feet. The low-profile EST Midsole lowers the boot's profile, boosting board feel for higher levels of control. Additionally, the rugged Vibram EcoStep features rubber Ice Spikes for tenacious traction when you're traversing iced-over parking lots and climbing steep terrain.
