Can the Infuse boot be used with a winged highback?

I heard that the BOA dial could get in the way of a winged HB.

Specifically, I'm looking at using these with the Flux DS binding.

Hmmmmm. It looks like there will be enough room between the wing and the nob but it might be close and will likely depend on product size and setup as well. I will do a little testing when the Vans boots arrive.

Default Vans Infuse BOA problem

my BOA cable has jammed. The dial will wind the cable tight but won't release even when disengaged. Does anyone have an idea how the dial can be removed... It doesn't follow the regular BOA system, meaning there is no screw or lever? I've visited the BOA site but didn't see a BOA that matches the Vans Infuse. Please Help.

Best
Andrew

It could be that the Boa cable has crossed over itself on the reel. Sometimes it will release if you yank hard on the cable.
Failing that, it might be necessary to disassemble the Boa reel. Dead easy - takes about 2-3 minutes. You will meed a tiny screwdriver, ideally the one that Boa will send you for free if you call them/order from the website.

Thanks for your advice SG. The problem is the BOA doesn't have a screw in it or a lever at the side to release the dial. That's what's weird about it. I've looked at the BOA technologies site but there are no PDF tutorials of the Vans Infuse Dial to follow. Any thoughts? Again thanks.

You have the ones with the dial that say Vans and are flat no hole with like the lil Vans wave on them right? These are H3 boas and in order to get to the dial opener spot you need to pop open the dial now on the rim of dial where it is sewed into the boots look for a "shiny" spot on the matte rim about .3 inch long and a sliver wide behind/under (you may have to push down on fabric to access) there is a depression--this is a slot to put in key or knife or whatever and then you rotate housing not dial clockwise to release. My Vans Ferra have this for the hybrid BOA closure.

Try this as well: Google H3 BOA and go to BOA website and watch the video.

You need to remove the cap/cover from the dial first.

EDIT: The other poster beat me to it with more detail and the link. Check section 03. Remove H3 Reel from Bayonet in the video.

I did not have to remove the cover, the whole dial piece should come off as a unit.

Yes, you are correct. My post was too short and not really clear - your link to the Boa website was much more helpful.
