Anyone know what cord is used for speed lacing systems?

Hi everyone,

I would like to get a reel of the cord used for snowboard boot speed lacing systems.

I bet it is cheaper to buy it from a camping / outdoor place but I don't know what it is called. I am thinking
3mm Purlon (para cord) looks about right, but maybe too floppy!

Does anyone know what the tough cord is actually called in the industry?

Thank you.

Matt

Which manufacturer? There are many variants on speed lacing and most of them use their own proprietary cord.

Hi,

Thank for the reply.

I have decided to go with 2mm black paracord from a camping / outdoor store. It is the right diameter, has a big breaking strain and is cheap, 6 for 20m.

I wasn't specific about the make of boot because we have 3 different ones in the house and they all use the same type of cordage - for both liners and outer boots, (Burton, Forum and Northwave SL).

I wanted cord I could use to replace any one of mine, my wife's or riding buddies laces should they fail.

Thanks and will let you know if they work out!

Matt
