Ridden the Vans Aura for the last 3 seasons, 2 pairs a year in fact, and never had an issue with the BOA system, just the boot s go too soft on me, and then i buy new ones.

This year i have the Vans and a pair of Burton IONS...

Gotta say, i love the speed laces, but it may just be the boots that make them easy, as they are a stiff boot, so i don;t need to lace as tight, which makes them far more comfortable for "me"...!!!

It is all about personal preference, i have both in the car anyway, and just put on which ever i pick up 1st at the moment...

No real preference right now, although if i HAD to choose, then the IONS would win because they are better in the park etc...
