ThirtyTwo Fast Fit

Looks like 32 is doing something like salomon for next years lacing. I'm depressed. I was going to get some Ultralights, looks like I'll have to find some of this years next year.

I guy I worked with has a mate whos sponsored by 32. He said that the ultralights were awesome boots but that they always fell apart on him within 20-30 days of riding. So just be prepared to warranty them if you end up buying some.

I appreciate the warning. Has he said anything about next years lacing? Good...Bad...

No nothing about the lacing. This was last season that i was speaking to him about them. Im not even sure if they were last seasons model or this one because I know he used to use a lot of next-season gear.

What do you mean by falling apart? I just recently purchased the '09 Ultralights. Very nice boot too.

guys that are sponsored put more wear and tear on a boot then a reguler rider. Depending on how hard you ride i wouldnt worrie about it.

by falling apart i meant that they lost all of their support. He said they started out as awesome boots but would become really flimsy 10x faster than any other boots. Hopefully they have made them better lasting this year.

yeah I agree with KONG on that as well. Ive heard of pro riders breaking 10+ boards in a season as well.

Ok thats good to know. I only board about 3-5 times a year and I'm not a hardcore rider.

Dont worry about it then, those boots will be awesome for you. I ride up to 170 days a year so for me durability is very important.
