Take the wheel.
At home dropping spines in Alaska's Chugach Range? How about hucking cliffs and slaying steeps in Colorado's San Juan Mountains? A favorite of freeride pioneer Terje Haakonsen, the Burton Men's Driver X Snowboard Boot provides the hard-charging response needed to rip the gnarliest lines on the planet. Often referred to as the stiffest boot ever produced, it's no secret that the Driver X is a favorite among freeride fanatics who spend every waking moment accessing untouched snow and seriously steep terrain.
Constructed with Burton's renowned Speed Zone Lacing, the Driver X allows you to quickly and easily adjust the tightness of the upper and lower areas independently. This is especially crucial when you're hiking to lines along exposed ridgelines where fumbling with traditional laces is anything but fun. There's also an internal harness to dial-in the fit on the inside, and it easily cinches shut with the slide of the lace lock for all-day support.
Let's not forget the rest of the freeride-worthy features, such as the thermoplastic-reinforced PowerUp Plus Tongue that increases response when you're blasting turns down steep faces. The Level 2 Molded EVA footbed cushions heavy drops and smooths out the ride in rough terrain. The sole is reinforced by an ESS Support Shank to keep your arch from collapsing when you drop huge cliffs and drops. Adding warmth on sub-zero shred days, the boot's Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil reflects body heat back to your foot for all-day warmth. Add in a rugged Vibram EcoStep outsole with rubber ice spikes for traction on the sketchiest slopes, and you have a boot that's ready for serious missions in the backcountry.
