Caffeine Sure the solution is a new lace. But a lace on snowboard boot is more critical than on a average shoe. It can end a day fast or at the very least make it sub par. Such as critical part should not have broken. I was able to tighten the boot up using just the speed zone lacing alone but the boot was not optimally tight as it should have been. Never the less these boots are great. Not too soft not too stiff. Comfy. I too however experienced some heal lift and fixed it with J bars. Good boot overall.

ttccnn I will say them fit true to size, comfortable after break in, it took about 4 or 5 days. Not stiff, but not too soft either. I do have a little heel lift issue with the ambush, but you can always get free j bar from burton rider service for free. And it is a light boots.

danny662boy How would you rate these boots before the incident?? Comfy? Fit true to size?? Break in well? Stiff? Soft? I'm looking at picking these up and would have to order them bc the local shop doesn't have any in stock. Any feedback would be appreciated

Eat Sleep Shred Honestly this isn't much worse than having any other shoe lace break... the solution? A new lace. Your title makes it sound like the boot was delamming or something.

dreampow Any manufacturer, any product, some stuff will be faulty and break. Burton will get you sorted out contact them ASAP.

Caffeine It was the lace itself and it wasn't at the knot.

lab49232 What broke? the lace itself, the harness the lace is held by? If it was the lace itself did it actually break or did the knot just pop free? That happens a lot actually and you just have to retie the lace into a loop.

Burton Ambush Boot Fail

As some of you already know, I have a pair of 2014 Burton Ambush's. Today while at my local resort I was tightening up the drawstring (whatever you want to call it) that tightens the liner and SNAP. Like what the? I didn't yank the drawstring or over tighten it...just steady slow tightening until it was snug. These boots had only been used a total of 16 times prior and have been well taken care off. Anyone else experience such disappointment?
