I have had 2 sets of burton motos and the only time I had the speed laces break was because I was an idiot and rested my foot under my board and the edge sliced the lace other than that I love them it seems to be the only boot that fits me just right.

I got 09 motos this year have yet to ride them but am kinda paranoid about breaking a lace. Would a shop be able to do the replacement?

Not sure. When I called Burton they told me they would send instructions with the new lace.

Burton 09 Driver X

I love the speed laces....and from what I understand, starting with 09 it is very easy to change the lace should they break.

The boas are fixed. Another one broke so I had to do a standard lace replacement - Which was super easy and good work to boa for that. Onto the problem one, removed all the cable with a pair of plyers. But the reel was jammed so I just re-attached a separate replacement reel and it is been glued to the boot.

I have 09 Burton Rulers and have had no issues with my Speed Laces thus far loosening or anything.

I cant help but LOL at the BOA video on that site @0:54, no more messy laces! Ha ha the guy has his speed laces just danging around his ankles and bouncing off the ground as if thats how they work...
