It's a triple Boa not just a double, so it's not a flaw really in the design, no other place left to put it... I haven't used them yet, so I'll see if it's a problem or not. I doubt it, since my pants will cover them

Not the best at all mountain, pretty horrible in variable chopped out snow, definitely a board for the more mellow runs and in the park jibbing and small-medium jumps. Softest board I have Ridden, if you are into buttering and ground tricks this is the board for you.

With all that being said I still hit this thing all mountain and it handles Okay, and it can be fun in pow as well as long as its not too deep.

Malavita - very flexy especially with the reflex but suits the artifact perfectly.

Rome 390 - they are okay but a lot cheaper feeling than the rest of my bindings,
my least favorite , not a huge fan of the confomist toe cap. Was thinking of replacing them with switchbacks.

I have the K2 Maysis with the double boa system. The second set of Boas for the liner are on the outside

Ahh got it, mine were double BOAs. They should hold fine while wearing pants. I just tried them on with shorts and was rounding a corner. Shouldn't be a problem if I'm using them how they were meant to be used. Btw, fixing was SIMPLE. sent BOA Company an email, and they hooked me up for free. took 5-10 minutes to replace.
