Tatanka Head I like my Ride Insanos a lot. Super stiff, but they loosen up to a mid to stiff flex rather well. I just wore them a bit looser til they soften up.

I am dude...just looking for options on boots with lower and upper isolation. There's not a single store around here that carries every name brand or model.

NWBoarder K2 Maysis. K2 says 7 of 10 on the stiffness scale, and they're dual BOA with the BOAConda tech. Or, the Burton Ruler, which is what I just bought because I found it more comfy than the K2 and I liked the dual zone speed lace a little better than the dual BOA. Ultimately though, it's whatever boot is most comfortable on your foot.

GreyDragon Ride Tridents.

Triple boa.
The third boa tightens the inner liner
Stiff flex and super comfortable - at least for me.

thedru13 Check out the DC Judges or the T rice ones. They are pretty stiff and have the Dual Boa. I have the judges and they were super stiff compared to my Nike LunarEndors. Were a bit stiff for me but liked the boot. My Lunarendors are a lot softer in comparison.

I liked the Boas and the dual boas is nice to be able to crank the top and keep the bottom a bit loser..

Looking for mid-to-stiff flexing lower and upper boa boot

My ZF1's have softened up greatly over the last two years of riding, so I'm looking for a new boot that can really crank down a heel. They held my heels down pretty well and were comfy, but I absolutely hated the lacing system, which I found to be a chore to tighten, and messy.

I tried the flow vegas in a shop, found that the single boa sooner tightened the area around my calf/ankle rather than diagonally down against my heel, really didnt like the fit and had tons of heel lift.

So I think what I need is a dual zone boa, one that does lower and upper foot sections, and also has a good lacing system for the liner.

Looking for recommendations.
