Looking for mid-to-stiff flexing lower and upper boa boot
My ZF1's have softened up greatly over the last two years of riding, so I'm looking for a new boot that can really crank down a heel. They held my heels down pretty well and were comfy, but I absolutely hated the lacing system, which I found to be a chore to tighten, and messy.

I tried the flow vegas in a shop, found that the single boa sooner tightened the area around my calf/ankle rather than diagonally down against my heel, really didnt like the fit and had tons of heel lift.

So I think what I need is a dual zone boa, one that does lower and upper foot sections, and also has a good lacing system for the liner.

Looking for recommendations.

Check out the DC Judges or the T rice ones. They are pretty stiff and have the Dual Boa. I have the judges and they were super stiff compared to my Nike LunarEndors. Were a bit stiff for me but liked the boot. My Lunarendors are a lot softer in comparison.

I liked the Boas and the dual boas is nice to be able to crank the top and keep the bottom a bit loser..

Ride Tridents.

Triple boa.
The third boa tightens the inner liner
Stiff flex and super comfortable - at least for me.

K2 Maysis. K2 says 7 of 10 on the stiffness scale, and they're dual BOA with the BOAConda tech. Or, the Burton Ruler, which is what I just bought because I found it more comfy than the K2 and I liked the dual zone speed lace a little better than the dual BOA. Ultimately though, it's whatever boot is most comfortable on your foot.

I am dude...just looking for options on boots with lower and upper isolation. There's not a single store around here that carries every name brand or model.

I like my Ride Insanos a lot. Super stiff, but they loosen up to a mid to stiff flex rather well. I just wore them a bit looser til they soften up.
