Default Stiff freeride boots

Hey Guys,

Im looking for some stiff freeride boots.

Im interested in the burton driver x boot. Not a fan of burton's boards, but their boots are great.

Can you please suggest some other similar boots? Im really looking for the stiffest out on the market. I like to ride fast, and a stiff boot makes hell of a lot of difference.

whichever fit you best get to a shop and try some on. the wrong boots will result in a crap day on the hill.

TBH, I havnet thought of that option. Where I live, there is a limited number of snowboarding supplies. But I am going to the US for the summer, and I will definitely try several at a shop.

So far I've had only burton boots, and I like them. But i think its time for a change. I'd like to give boa boots a try.

It's all about fit. A softer bout that fits is better than a stiffer one that doesn't.

That said, the stiffest boots on the market are: Flow Talon, Ride Trident, K2 Thraxis, Driver X, Deeluxe Empire, Salomon Malamute, 32 Focus Boa, DC Rice.

Bought a pair of 32 Focus Boa's at the end of last season and a pair of Flow Talon's at the end of this season. Both are stiff but the Flows have a smaller profile and are more comfy.

I myself love my malamutes. Stiff as hell, good for splitting in and comfy. Owned two pairs in a row now.

From reading so far, those are my favorite. I would just like to try them at a shop before buying. Plus, I would have to get a proper size. Im somewhere between 12/13

I'm a 13 (47EU) and my Insanos are 12. Perfect fit. I also weigh in at 105 without gear. These boots have held up tremendously well. Find a shop with a size 12 and give them a shot. You won't (or shouldn't) need to size up for these.
