BOA problems

I have a pair of 2013 DC Judge boots that are awesome! I only have one problem with them: If I am bombing and laying into hard carves, By the time I get to the bottom my boa laces have loosened up a significant amount. The dials are staying locked I guess they are just possibly slipping?

Has anyone had this problem with these boots or other boa's? Any fixes? THANKS!

Have you tried using the tool to tighten the knobs?



I had one fall completely off when i was ridding, I didn't know you had to tighten it every so often.

Replace the assembly.

Get new ones from BOA's website, free of charge, as they stand behind their warranty and their products

Go to a core shop that sells boots with boas and they should have a kit to fix them right there.

Ck out my thread of me fixing 2 pairs of BOA's not step by step but very easy and some pics to familiarize you with the inner workings. Took about 10min per boot and that was cuz I was in no real rush what so ever

I called Tyler and stuff was here fast and free !!! Again all explained in my thread

The 2013's should be the counter twists that use a flat head screw driver to pop them off. Check the boa website for a video on how to do this.

Because someone has to call it how they see it!
