I'll not go back to traditional lace up.... or BOA. Northwave SL2 is great, except trying to get replacement laces was a pain.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

I've had Burton Rulers (Boa) and i'm going to get traditional lacings now, thinking about forum antenna... Looks decent and it's cheap.

Burton Rulers don't use BOA. Unless you're talking about the speed lacing, which is different.

Woops, yeah I meant speed zone lacing.

I have boots with the Focus BOA system and I really like it. That said, I think I'd prefer regular laces because it seems to me you get less "boot" for your money when going with BOA.

My next boots probably won't be BOA.

There is no substitution for human competition.

This thread is so old the OP doesn't even have an account anymore.

Maybe start a new one in 'boots' and ask your question there

I completely disagree with you on boot lacing systems. Traditional laces allow you to control the force each section of the boot puts on your foot. I have a narrow heal, wide forefoot, and flat feet. Every single "pull" system leaves my ankle too tight and my foot too loose. The double "pull" systems allow me to properly pressure my foot and ankle appropriately, but not as good as laces.

I can tie my boots up properly in a few minutes at the beginning of the day. They don't come off until I'm done. Speed lacing systems will allow me to get on the slopes 1 minute faster (assuming I'm the slow one) at the expense of a poorer fit.

No thanks.

FYI, this experience comes after spending 5 hours in two shops trying everything they had in my stiffness range/size. Proper lacing was better every time.

I like the BOA, K2 Maysis. No problems yet. I have some of the toe caps that would work with my cartels but I haven't switched them out yet, looks like they might take longer to get n them on the top of the hill.
