Boa boot system broke

I was riding today and my boa snapped (the wire) and i was wondering if and how i go about replacing the wire or would it be easier to just buy new boots instead of now being able to ride for a few weeks. thanks

how did the wire snap?
do you typically rest the board on the top of your boot while riding the chairlift? If so, this might have been the problem.
I've heard a couple other people say they had the same problem.

If your interested in a solution, check out my invention at Phrakis - A snowboard boot support. It is a $6 snowboard accessory that helps support the weight of a board on a chairlift.

good luck

Shameless plugs aside you should contact the company. If they are under warranty you can get them replaced. If not, you can get the parts and fix them yourself. It is not terribly difficult.

replacing a boa lace is incredibly easy. If you don't have a lace you can order them directly from boa on their website :: BOA Technology :: The Boa Lacing System ::. It should come with a little allen wrench tool thingy to, you'll need this. Just be sure to get the correct size this is very important. The size will be stamped on the inside tounge of your boot. O and btw if you're ordering one order two, it's always a good idea to have a spare...

i know, i know; my apologies for the shameless plug. One of the downsides of being an inventor is that immediately after you create your vision, you have to turn yourself into a salesman.

So to make up for it;
hey - skate_banana, send me a private message with your mailing address and I'll send you a free phrakis. In return, I would only ask that you provide some feedback once you have had a chance to try it out on the mountain. Thanks

Very easy to fix. It took me less than five minutes once I realized there was a plastic cap that covered the gear that the laces hook into. Pm if you have any questions
