fattrav I can't remember if Nitro has an inner lace or just a Velcro strap. Good luck with your purchase and hope you have a good season.

Beno The inner lace always annoys me so good point.
I would not buy a boot off trademe without trying it first. Season starts this weekend so I'm buying tomorrow!

fattrav Beno, check out trademe at the moment, there is a guy from Hamilton selling nitro boots, my friend swears by the lacing system in them and I will probably get some off of him before the start of the
season. I'm fairly sure they'd be a bit better priced than what your currently looking at buying too.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: And yeah, your right, NZ prices suck...

Burton Ion or K2 Maysis

Hey guys,

I have tried on both these boots, they both feel comfortable in the shop after trying on varying sizes etc. I really like the BOA system and they version on the Maysis really holds the heel in place but the Ion is also a very nice boot and speed lacing system is fast and works well also.
Both are the same price (note overpriced in New Zealand)

I would like some opinions from others to help with my decision, help sway me one way

I have Rome Libertines at the moment and they are far too flimsy and parky for my riding and I hate laces!
