    Details

    Push the envelope.

    Whether he's ripping big-mountain faces along the Antarctic peninsula, pushing boundaries in Greenland's incredible fjords, or straight-lining steeps in the Swiss Alps, Xavier de Le Rue is no stranger to pushing the limits of big-mountain riding. As his go-to boot for ascending and ripping drool-worthy lines, the Deeluxe Men's Spark Speedlace Snowboard Boot offers uncompromising support and customizable stiffness, with rugged durability and goat-like grip for scrambling up craggy, iced-over terrain. Its D-Tex waterproof/breathable membrane won't succumb to outside moisture and soaking-wet snow, ensuring your feet stay dry and comfortable through demanding backcountry tours and serious freeride sessions.

    Customizing the boot's support and response, the C3 lacing system independently tightens along the upper and lower zones with the quick-and-simple pull of each lacing handle. Adding even more support along the upper shin, the boot's Powerstrap delivers extra stiffness when you're charging at high speeds. Plus, Deeluxe offers extra TPU Shield inserts (sold separately) for even more stiffness and support, should you desire the utmost in energy transfer and response on those big-mountain lines.

    Inside the boot, the Spark XV PF is heat-moldable for a precise fit that conforms to the shape of your foot over time. This not only alleviates nasty pressure points, but it also enhances the overall fit and function of the boot when you're wearing them all day long. The liner features an internal harness that locks-down your heel to prevent turn-sapping heel lift on those high-speed descents.

    Redesigned with a smaller footprint, the Vibram East Ridge sole delivers tenacious traction over rough terrain and icy snow. Its also equipped with a heel welt for use with crampons when you're climbing icy couloirs and glaciers. Additionally, the EVA midsole offers extra cushioning for stomping heavy landings and busting through choppy snow.

    heavier, bigger, liner softer vs Ion

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just received these boots in 30 cm and compared them to Burton Ion 2012/13 in size 12 (equivalent to 30 cm)
    Weight: Deeluxe is 2630 g, Ion is 1970 g.
    Footprint: Deeluxe about 1 inch bigger, see foto.
    Liner: almost the same footprint, looks much softer (even compared with Ion ridden for 60 days), with way thicker upper part, and nothing like Rad Pads to prevent compacting the tong.

    I will update the review after riding the boot.

    heavier, bigger, liner softer vs Ion

    great improvements from the previous

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My last pair of Spark XV broke at the lacing buckle (from last season), so backcountry.com sent me a new pair this season. I've used the new pair about 10 tours (full day). There are still some flaws, but overall I think Deeluxe had made great improvements with this season's Spark XV. Maybe after all these years Deeluxe finally started to figure out how to make a pair of backcountry snowboard boots. The boots are lighter and had a profile that is more like a snowboard boot, but still do the job scrambling and climbing. I just wore it couple days ago kicking steps up a couloir in firm snow, I was happy with their performance. I don't know if they'd be good for icy climbs, but I don't do much of those anyway. The fit wasn't great (as before), I have few hot spots and still working on fitting the boots better.
    I'm not sure if Deeluxe had improved the durability for this season's Spark XV. If there're any issues after a full season's use, I'll report them back here.

    great boots for backcountry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    great boots. comfortable with good heal hold. I have a narrow heel and these boots hold great with out producing hotspots. The vibram sole grips good. I did notice also that the liner pulls out a bit easy. It really isn't a big deal and doesn't hurt the performance. Also they do run a bit small. I usually wear a size 10 for everything but I had to size up to a 10.5 because my big toe was hitting the tip of the boot.

    Good boots, but no durability

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really liked these boots. They are perfect for hiking, climbing, touring, and working in every day. I rode approx. 100 days in them last season. Over the course of the 100 days I had to return them twice for manufacturer defects. The first was that the sole came apart from the boot because the boot was deteroriating from bad seams. Second, the top part of the lacing system broke. I am a full time ski patroller on a snowboard, and these boots were great except for them breaking. Other patrollers I work with have other versions of the Deeluxe spark and have not had any problems. Backcountry has been AWESOME about the problems, but Deeluxe has never responded to me. According to the warranty, you have to go through Deeluxe and because of that I have switched back to salomon malamutes.

    Finally found boots that fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    To start, I am a size 9.5e (mondo wide) and I have been using some Burtons the past 4 seasons but had to go up 10.5 in order to get the width; other boots I was approaching 11. In looking at the pictures of this boot I thought it would be wide enough so i ordered their version of a US 10 *mongo 28*. I've only put two days on them, but what I can say is because of how they adjust and cinch and such it's easy to get the fit just right. My left foot is apparently a smidge wider then my right, and I would always have problems with the left little toe going to sleep and getting a touch of hot foot under the pad (numb foot). I did a few hour resort day following the daughter, no pain. Did a lap of BC at one of my local short runs...again..no pain where as in the past I would be hurting 1/2 way up the skin track. I know they are going to pack out some more, but I am free of slop/slide in my boots, and these seem pretty bomber and warm.
    I only have one complaint, and that is it is easy to take off the boot and the liner stay on...there is only a single piece of velcro to hold the liner in. pretty minor thing, just hold my hand in the liner to get it stay in while I pull my foot.

    I'll followup and add a more full review to focus on quality etc over time, I was just stoked to finally have some boots that fit all around w/ no compromise.
