Default From Salomon F22 to......

If you've used F22's and made the move to another boot what was it and how did you like it?

I want the BOA lacing system if possible...

No freestyle riding all mountain, tree, and steep.

Just curious hy you're looking at boa only? For your riding style the f22s and the malamutes really are great options if they fit. Boas seem to be love, or hate and preferred by the lazy and those that aren't discerning. ymmv

I'm lazy... Lol. Any amount of time I can shave from parking to strapping in is good.

I liked the salomon, but theyre packed out. Time for new boots and I'm all about convenience.

I will say though, the f22 lace system was solid. Never had to adjust once suited up, and I like my boots tight.

Malamutes are sick! Really love it. Got two pairs.
But they're stiff, and you gotta be ready for this. This is for high-speed freeriders who want to get super responsive.

Boa Focus is unmatched in performance.
Those that aren't discerning? What are you claiming is better than BOA then? And then why is every manufacturer that uses BOA using it on their top end boots (except Salomon apparently, though I'd bet it wont be long before Malamutes get a dial) if the target is for the customer who isn't discerning? The people that are buying top of the line boots are nearly always performance whores. You are not making sense.

If F22 fit great look into the F2.0 or Synapse. Though as always, your foot, your fit. Try shit on and pick for yourself. Then buy after market insoles as even the slightly built Salomons are still pretty much useless.

Nivek,

What would some BOA boots be that are comparable to the F22 or Malamute?

In fit... Synapse Focus. Try some stuff on and see what works, but for similar feel look at the Flow Hylite, Ride Insano, K2 Maysis or UFO (UFO's have Endo which means the back stays are now urethane, they will last at least twice as long as anything else except Rides with Phytop).

If you happen to be a size 8.5 in your Salomons I have my last years Flow Hylites with fully remoldable liners and footbed with maybe 20 days on them for I think $120... Its in my sig which I can't see. After molding they won't even remember my foot was in them, and you wont even be able to tell they've been ridden. It's a solid boot, I'll be riding this years again.

My comment was in jest. They're boots, regardless of the lacing system they'll fit everyone different and I know you know that. Personlly even with the dual zone boa system I've had pressure point issues. So maybe my comment is just becaus Boa won't work for me and I'm jealous.

Plan on trying some on... I know your knowledgeable so instead of researching all boots that are as stiff as the F22 or Malamute I thought I'd ask.

That was me too, I'd bet its the boots not the BOA.
