MeanJoe When I get home after a day riding I usually take my boots out, open them up all the way (all the laces loosened, liner pulled open as far as I can) and let them air dry for awhile. I don't normally* remove the liner from the boot, just let them air out and dry.

I never re-tighten them but my boots go back into a boot compartment on my gear bag and are never just loose tossed in a closet or in the trunk of the SUV when driving to/from the resort.

*Last year after a day of spring riding, my boots were fairly wet and I forgot to get them out to dry right away. That created the funk in the boots that makes your hair curl so in that case I did pull the liners and insoles and let them all air out separately.

Works fine for me.

killclimbz No it is not bad if you tighten your BOA. I am not saying crank them super tight either. Just snug them up before you transport them. I learned the hard way if the laces are loose you can more easily snag them on things and kink them. It only takes a couple of seconds to do.

I will loosen my uppers to use a boot dryer but when I am transporting the boots the cables are snug.

Thanks for the input, in other words you say i need to tighten my lace system like i would use them when i snowboard right?

One question after session on a mountain you take your boots off and inside the boot there is like second boot i dont know how it is called and sometimes i feel that its wet so i take that boot from a main boot and leave over the night to fry do i am doing right?

question about lace system

Hello, good day, i have one question after snowboarding when you take off your boots do you need release all lace system or keep it strong like you would wear a boot (my boots are with boa system)

p.s i mean you dry your boots and after that when you are not going to snowboard for example like for a week do you tighten them or not? If i understand correct they can lose a shape or not?

Thanks
