Julien S.wrote a review of Nidecker x Flow Helios Boa Focus Snowboard Boot - Men's on February 12, 2019
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Well; this Helios boots is the new Nidecker version of a staples from Flow since their acquisition. They completely ruined it :
-internal liner is now non removable because they stitched down the lace cage around the liner to the ankle boot.
-they added a wool lining around the ankle where previously it was just sleek mesh so it will catch up snow
-they re-positioned the boa system lace in diagonal/angled on the front foot so it doesn't tie like before and the boots tends to "open" around the ankle area
Flow Helios boots was a stiff low profile boots; this Nidecker version is bulkier & heavier with a liner you can't remove to dry.
