Burton JET boots

Alright so just recently I purchased a pair of JET Burton boots and heres what i think about them take it was you will as it is just an opinion also add your .02, First off these boots are outrageously light and I loved them for that reason also they fit nice and where very comfy so I grabbed them and brought them home and of course decided to put them on and wear them around the house abit to get use to a new boot and all and this is when i was awared about a minor flaw with in them. The dial on the boot would slowly over time loosen the boot nothing major at first but i just thought about how much worse it would get over time and decided to return these boots. I may have had a bad pair but the reason I am posting this is to bring awareness to everyone be careful when you buy these i brought them back and i purchased a new pair of Invader boots

Because Burton is trying to cheat the game once again. They made their own BOA. So they wouldn't have to pay boa for their dial. Its cheap.

Hmm... good to know. I picked up a pair of these a few weeks ago (approx half price). I will see how they are and if they start loosening Burton will get them back, lol.

These boots suck bought them used at rei for 50 bucks. They loosen up just getting on the ski lift. Toe side turns makes them loosen even more. Bought a pair of dc travis rice boots what a difference.

What is cheap about the biggest company in the business creating their own boa dial system? Why are you whining about their attempt at it win or fail? Boa doesn't stay tight either. Sounds like you just hate everything burton.

The Burton dual zone system is great. Boa is terrible! A friend of mine has the authentic Boa system and it needs tightening all the time...

Not sure how your boa boots are loosening, but I have some old DC Judge boots with a single boa that stay tight.

With a single boa (it probably isn't so much of an issue with the dual boas) you do need to tighten them after the first run, not because the dial has loosened, but because riding has caused the lace tension down the entire boot to even out. After I have tightened my boots after the first run, I do not need to do it again.

This might be what you guys are experiencing?

It needs replacing or he is riding a single dial with poor lace guides and doesn't know what he's doing.

Single boa's tighten the top of the boot more than the bottom on first crank. Push into the tongue as you tighten and you wont have to re-adjust throughout the day.
