Take the reel assembly apart. 1.3mm hex key. It's a quick and rather easy job. Don't be intimidated by it.

Is this the same tool as the little yellow plastic one they give you for the laces - will the instructions be on the site? thanks.

The same.

And I don't know.

You really don't need instructions, just be mindful when you take it apart. It's pretty self-evident how it goes back together. There just aren't that many parts.

The Super Lace from Northwave are pretty good, but they WILL break, and Northwave service sucked ass. Took 3 weeks to get new laces, after being told to go out and fint them on my own. I had to argue with them to get new laces.

They only took a few minutes to replace though.

If you are getting speed laces, get spares and keep an eye on them for wear.

I had Focus Boa from 32, and the assembly broke when I knocked it getting on a cat. It was still functional, but it's too risky in my opinion.

Look at the BOA Technologies site if you need more help. Lots of videos for different versions. Basically lace 'em the same as standard, then feed the ratchet like a weedeater/string trimmer.

Yeah- a few brands are starting to put an extra flap of material over the boa to protect it. Might need to get one of those strap pad deals if yours don't have that.

Snow or sun, not rain

I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

Send them to Burton. I tried to replace the lower laces on my girl's boot. Eventually I did, but it was NOT easy. Fucking royal pain in the ass. Needless to say, she's rocking Vans Veil Focus Boa now.
