    Photon Boa Snowboard Boot

    Created with hard-charging freeriders and hungry powder hounds in mind, the Photon Boa Snowboard Boot dials in a precise, powerful feel for attacking the steep and deep. The Dual Zone Boa closure lets you tighten the upper and lower zones separately with the spin of each dial, giving you a precise fit for laying into swift carves and straight-lining steeps. Burton also incorporated Lockdown tech, which means the lacing wraps behind the ankle to prevent heel lift from sapping your power transfer. All of Burton's Boa systems make use of New England Ropes for the lacing, ditching Boa's traditional steel wires for the natural flex and robust durability of this climbing-quality rope.

    The aggressive flex gives you the instantaneous response desired for leaving your mark on natural terrain features and carving up freshly groomed runs. Seeing it's one of Burton's high-end boots, it's hooked up with an Imprint 3 liner that's both supportive and resistant to breakdown over the course of a long season. This heat-moldable liner not only conforms to your feet to alleviate pressure points, but it's equipped with a removable J-Bar system for better heel hold. And to ensure optimal traction when you're scrambling along sketchy peaks in pursuit of powder, the Photon Boa's Vibram EcoStep sole features Ice Spikes that remain soft and grippy in cold conditions, much like you'd experience with a winter-specific tire for your vehicle.

    Comfort right out of the box

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

    I had to try out a few different boots before settling on these. The past few seasons I've ridden thirtytwo TM-Twos, which I loved for their relative comfort and stiffness. After trying on a newer pair of TM-Twos, I noticed several pressure points and decided to pass on them. I next tried some Burton Rulers, which were comfy but a little too soft for me. Then I tried the Photons. They are by far the most comfy boots I've ever worn. After two days riding in a row I haven't noticed any pressure points, and my feet feel great. The boots are true to size and the stiffness rating is about right. They're also my first pair of boots with a Boa lacing system, and I love the convenience and speed. Would definitely recommend these to any intermediate-advanced rider in need of a slightly stiffer boot.
