Default 2010 maysis or driver X

after trotting around my local board shop in both pairs of boots for over an hour I have come to a brick wall. I like the extra padding the burtons provide on the top part of the boot, but I am all about the BOA system on the K2's. also the sales rep said the foam in the K2's would mold/hold up better than the burtons. BASICALLY I cant decide, and Im getting a 100 dollars off the burtons so they are both $250 dollars. Im freeride, and apparently they are both great for that. PLEASE help a brother out... which would you pick?

Yesterday i went to the store and spent hours trying on boots. i tried on about 10 boa boots. of these the K2 maysis and the K2 triaxis were the best for my foot. It was a hard choice between the two but i choose the triaxis.

Both boots were incredibly comfy i never knew boots could feel so good. I never tried on the burtons you mentioned so i cant comment on them.

The build quality on the k2's seemed the best this year. Solomon seemed the best a few years ago when i bought my last boots but k2 seems the best this year and i did not like the solomons new speed lace system.

For 250$ the penguin maysis is an awesome boot and is priced just right.

if you decide on the maysis get the penguin one in white they look awesome, and hurry up. The shop owner said he bought more maysis boots then any other boot this year and he was almost out. So they may not be around for to much longer

as far as boa i thought the Vans Cirro Dual boa was very comparable. Alot heavier and slightly less wide which is why i choose against them the k2's were just the right width.

Im all about stiff boots, Ive been riding the same pair of boots for about 9 seasons, but lost them. So Im forced to buy a new pair, and the Driver X's felt really good. They both Felt good. Im just curious as to the build quality of the K2's. And If the Driver x's are better than the k2's. They are a 350 dollar pair of boots Im getting for a great price. so you know, they are both 100 times more comfortabhle then my burtons from 10 years ago

The thraxis was just too expensive. However, I always knew someone would eventually make a triple BOA boot, and K2 finally delivered this season. The Maysis is a great boot. I only chose the T1 DB over it b/c of the much grippier Vibram outsole. Despite what the spec sheet says, the Maysis feels a tad softer and I think is a better overall boot if you want to play in the park too.

Well i actually got a deal on the thraxis got them for $300 since the store made a big mistake on a past order and felt bad and gave me 25% off any boot

i really wanted a Dual Boa and and i tried on every dual boa they had and the Maysis and Thraxis felt the best.

how did the padding on the top of the foot compare between the two boots?

Well on the top of the 2 boots they both had lots of padding lined with soft fur which was nice.

On the maysis the tongue of the inner had velcro and the inner would wrap around it and keep it positioned

the thraxis had a strap and tightened the tongue down. This is a minor difference in my mind since both were very comfy i did like the strap on the thraxis better tho. Im not sure if that made sense but you can PM me if you have any more questions

the thraxis and the maysis were almost identical. the Maysis was slightly less stiff but on K2's website they rate both boots a 4 out of 5 on stiffness. The maysis felt a hair wider too

It sure is grippy, I'll give it that.

I (eventually) went with the T1 DBs too. Nice boots, though I prefer the look of the standard T1s. The BOA Conda system is great--really locks down the heel.
