Give your freeriding a kickstart this season with the Ride Men's Fuse Boa Snowboard Boot. Its responsive feel helps you tear up steeps and send big park jumps, while its Slime Tongue increases damping when you're blasting through choppy conditions. Its traditional lace closure locks down the powerful support and long-lasting durability you've come to love with regular laces, but is supplemented with a Boa Tongue Tied closure that prevents heel lift from sapping response and energy transmission.
Internal and external J-bars clutch your heel even more for the utmost in near-instantaneous response. Inside this premium freestyle boot, the Intuition Mobile Foam liner enhances comfort and support with its thermo-moldable fit. You can heat mold 'em right away for a great fit straight from the box or ride with them for a few days to conform the liner to your foot. Other key features include a vibration-dampening Impacto footbed, as well as a Michelin Summit sole for sure-footed traction over icy, snow-packed surfaces.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is one of my favorite boots. Its super light and minimalist and that toe dip is fresh
Great New Boot
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Only used this boot a couple of times, but so far, I love it. It was extremely comfortable from the get go and the boa is a great feature that works better than on some of the other boots I've worn.
Fav boot, but not perfect.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So I owned this boot from 2 seasons back. I typically ride stiff freeride boots (currently Salomon Malamutes), but I loved comfort of it, the toe-side responsiveness the slime tongue provides, and most especially the heel hold from the boa on this. It has a nice athletic fit that makes you feel primed and ready, a great sole that can easily manage boot-packs, and traditional laces that allow you to customize for charging or tweaking. By far my favorite boot, while it lasted....
Now for the bad: about a month n a half into my first season with this boot (I work at a resort so this would be approx 20-30 days on mtn) the boa tore out of the side of the tongue (rendering it useless) and 2 of the lace hooks on the side broke off due to catching on the opposing boot while walking around. I was lucky enough to have the website I purchased them from let me return them, but it was very disappointing that it happened. I'm still deliberating buying them again in the hopes that Ride has fixed or will fix these problems (plastic lace hooks, boa not across the tongue) because if they do there will be no better boot out there IMO. Hope this helps.
