Seanwrote a review of Ride Trident Boa Snowboard Boot - Men's on February 19, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've put about 8 days of riding and hiking in these boots and they are fantastic. Out of the box they were pretty stiff and I had some issues with the slime tongue biting my shins, but after a few days of hard use that went away. Now they are super comfy, and I can dial in how stiff I want them to feel with the boa adjustments. The boa for adjusting just your ankle area works really well; I've always had problems with heel lift in my boots and would have to over tighten everything to avoid that, but now I can leave the upper and lower parts fairly loose and just crank down the ankles and I'm good to go.
Things I really like about them :
1. The adjustability. Three BOAs may not be for everyone, but I really like it and didn't find them to get in the way. If you have bindings with a funky high back (like the winged Malavitas for example) this might not work for you but otherwise shouldn't be a problem.
2. The slime-tongue is great. I've had problems with the top of my ankles for years (snowboarders ankle) and the slime tongue completely takes all of the pressure off the top of my ankles and distributes it across the front of my legs. It's great to be able to ride in crud and not worry about hurting my ankles any more.
Two things that could be improved upon for next year :
1. The foot beds are pretty lousy. I swapped mine out for a Remind insole and that's works well for me, but it would be nice to see something a little better come with the boot.
2. The insulation Could stand to be improved upon. I've been riding Burton SLX boots for years and they are super warm while retaining a fairly low profile. The Tridents are also low profile but not nearly as warm.
