lrn2read, kthx.



how is loosening laces any more of a pain in the ass than reaching down to lossen the boa wheel? god forbid you take your gloves off and then have to put them back on right?
You have to take your gloves off, untie it, and wrap it up and tie it while your fingers are freezing off. With the boa, all you have to do is press the button and it loosens? idk how it works.

What am I trying to argue? I'm arguing that loosening laces on a lift would be a pain in the ass.

Have both....traditional laces for custom combortable fit; double boas...convience/fast and almost a custom fit and also easily adjust for stiffness.

I'm laughing so hard at the guy saying he will untie his laces in the lift yadda yadda. Never, dude, never would you do that. Maybe at the lodge for your milk...

Hmmmmmm I got the feeling you havent really tried a boa boot on the mountain if your saying the convinience of loosening your boots on the lift is the same on boas and laces.

I love when people bash a product that they never tried because they hear or read something but never experienced it for themselves. Thats funny to me.

I still havent heard any disadvantages of a double boa system, How about I throw out another advantage. Your bombing down some double blacks so you want the most response from your setup, so everything is pretty snug. then you decide to take a run through the park where you might want a looser setup so you can just reach down pop the wheel and lock it at a looser setup just giving you that edge in the park. And I can do all that without even stopping.

Are you saying that if I really want Boas or Speedlaces, I should get them regardless of how the boot fits on my feet? If the boot with speedlaces or boas have pressure points or incredible heel lift that's "ok" because you can loosen/tighten your boots quickly?
