Default Thinking About going to a BOA setup....

I am thinking about going to a BOA setup... I currently using some DC's and there nice and do the job great for me, but I am really liking the ease of the BOA... I think it will have to be the dual adjustable ones though, as I like it super tight on bottom and snug up top.... Any Recommendations on a brand I should go with??

Thanks

Big Rupe

I was looking at the K2 boots but now am looking at Celsius (haven't actually bought any yet). There are many conflicting threads and reviews about BOA and different brands so it is kinda a rough decision (hence why I haven't chosen yet either). GL!

Boas awesome but not for everyone. 2 things to remember it does have screws so you need to check the knob periodically and tighten it and you can break the cable/knob. I've done it all to mine but still refuse to get anything else because of how it tightens down. With single boa you can get it tight where you want it depending on how you flex in the boot.

I build racecars for a living... I am kinda OCD when it comes to checking out my equipment before i go out lol... knowing me i will have spares with me if need be lol...

I think my biggest problem is I have a wide foot and need a DC VANS or a 32 boot.... all the others seem too narrow for me..

I went with boas and will never look back.. they're just that great for my needs. Only problem I had with them was when the cable locked up on me. I think this happens when you tighten/loosen several times halfway through, it most likely gets tangled in. Used all sorts of tools available to me short of a cable cutter to unlock it but those cables are damn near impossible to break! Finally managed to loosen it enough to slide my foot out (can't remember how it happened coz by then I was in panic mode) and somehow unlocked the damn thing.

I LOVE my BOA's. I have the DC Scout's from last year and I will definitely not be going back to standard laces anytime soon. If you're on the fence, just take the leap to BOA. It's worth it IMO.
