I wore Burton speed-lace last year and Ride speed-lace this year, fucking love them both! I tried on a bunch of BOA this year and they just never felt right to me. The speed-lace is fast as hell and you can get them super tight or leave them loose. I love them, and am sold for life.

Burton speedlaces started to loosen up on me after a season.

I like BOA, but I wouldn't recommend BOA boots with the metal cable exposed on top of the boot. I broke 2 cables last year because of my board edges and such. The do have warranty on them however. I now ride DC Gizmo's with half BOA, half laces and my boots are so comfy. They have a cover over the top of the boot so only about an inch of cable is shown on the side of the boot. Recommend

Sorry but I am clueless as to how your board edges broke the cables, what do you do with your board. Anyways I love my boots with boa and it is the kind where the cables are on the outside.

When on the lift a lot of people but the loose end of the board on their boot to balance it.

I don't think the cables are that weak, well maybe I'm not sure what brand boots he was talking about.

I have Ride BOA boots and they're awesome. I dont need to tighten them throughout the day unless I wanna make it tighter than I originally had them. All that take is a few turns and bam.

the metal on the board over time cuts into the cable, the first time time I've heard of someone breaking a cable like that but it's easy to replace.

My experience with the burton quick lace is that it doesnt hold. It seems to loosed after a couple of run. Im going to back to boa.

I have Burton speedlaces on my last three pair of boots (2009 Serows, 2011 Driver X, and now 2010 Driver X).

I have about 75 days on my current pair and have no issues with the lacing system. Love it. I do the lower zone up a little loose and the uppers fairly tight. I like that if I need a mid-day adjustment I can usually do it without even removing my front foot from the binding.
