i can not speak for the burton speed laces as i have never used them. they certainly seem to be a gimmick, which is not to say they do not work, but does suggest they were created in a hurry to compete against other 'non-conventional' lacing systems.
boa... an independent company who do wire fixing solutions to a number of manufacturers (and not just snowboard boot makers) are brilliant. this i can say from experience.
it is horses for courses and a product is only as good as how you use it. for me, preferring a loose lower but type upper boot zone, the double boa on the vans cirro is perfect. being able to 'pop' them loose on the lift line and ratchets them tight prior to the dismount is lovely too.
but maybe you neither care for such convenience or the burton version can do that too?
tis for you to decide. just go to a store and try on all the boots you can until you feel bored! please yourself!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
