686 Times NB Boa Focus snowboard boots - 2012/2013 - $239.93

The 686 Times NB Boa Focus snowboard boots are based on the original MT580 trail running sneakers from New Balance. Their design has been simplified and includes new lightweight, durable textiles. This year's 686 Times NB boots offer an improved fit, increased stability with a superior flex, a lower profile and lighter weight overall than previous seasons. Boa(R) Focus lacing features 2 fit zones that tighten independently; it concentrates closure on the instep and holds the heel securely no matter how the upper is cranked. Boa lacing offers on-the-fly micro adjustments and never comes untied; you get quick on and off, and consistent closure without pressure points. Pure EVA outsoles are constructed to optimize cushioning while providing the most direct connection to the board as possible; aggressive tread provides easy trekking on snow. Lightweight, heel-stabilizing Rollbars(R) transfer any motion directly to the board and provide exceptional rear-foot support. With the added stability from the Rollbars, 686 can use exceptionally soft, shock-absorbing EVA padding to ensure superior comfort and impact protection. Lightweight thermoplastic urethane reinforcements add durable structure to the boots and relieve binding pressure. Embedded RECCO(R) reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors to speed location acquisition in an avalanche. DynaLite(TM) liners have a tailored fit that allows a compact footprint and provides exceptional board feel without sacrificing stability. Engineered open-cell polyurethane (PU) foam cuffs reduce pressure around calves; rip-and-stick locks keep tongues in position. PU foam C-pads adjust themselves to the shape of your ankles to provide optimal heel fit and shield ankle bones from unwanted pressure. ABZORB(R) cushioned footbeds provide a superior blend of cushioning, compression and arch support; high-friction surface prevents slippage. - $239.93
