Default Low Profile/Stiff/Dual BOA Boot??

Will be used next season with NS raptor. I wear 11.5 (28.5) and dont want to get the wider Raptor X.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I will willing to sacrifice the BOA lacing system if the best low profile/stiff boot is not a model with BOA.

Thanks!!

I ride a raptor 164 with northwave decades (30.0) (12 US) and have no problems. 8/10 for stiffness and comfortable as hell.

Not a boa, but a dual speed lace zone boot (takes me literally about 30 seconds to put on and tighten each boot). The Burton Driver X is very stiff, compact, and comfortable...

Salomon F series just don't have BOA.. I got the F4's on sale and actually like the speed lace system on them.

The judge is pretty soft, the DC Status would be a better fit.

The Ride Insano fits exactly what you are looking for except for maybe the footprint.

It's super stiff, double boa, very light and the boot overall is pretty low profile but I don't know if the footprint is supposed to be smaller. The footprint is the same as my old size 12 Vans Fargos that I have used with a TRice 161.5 no problem. I think the TRice has a 260 waist if that helps give you an idea.

I liked the DC Judge when I tried them on but they weren't as stiff as I was looking for. Super comfy though.

DC judge is a great boot. Medium stiff maybe. The status is their stiffest. Both have a small foot print and low profile.

Salomon F22 is pretty stiff and extremely low profile (liner fused with the shell). I wear a half size larger in these than standard salomon boots...so lo-pro, in fact, that, wearing their 10.5 F22, I'm able to comfortably bump down to a medium binding.

No boa, but as others said, Salomons proprietary lacing system (Powerlace Pro) is very good and relatively fast.
