Thanks! I seriously hope so. I was talking to one of the guys at the local shop and mentioned if the Boa system fails, they'll prorate it a series of newer boots even if they weren't bought through them. I need to press DC first to see if that's true.
i just bought some k2 raider boas in december and i too have had issues with them loosening up after a couple runs. I think its just the boot itself stretching around which causes it to loosen a little. No big deal for me, i just turn the knob at the top of the mountain and get on my way..
The Boa system is made to loosen a little to still provide some flex. If your boots are new, they will loosen up more easily because the boot itself cannot flex yet. Once you break them in they should be better.
In very rare circumstances, Boa systems can break or be defective and loosen a lot. You will be able to tell if this is the case if they are loosening significantly. If this is the case, you will most likely have to replace the boot or find a shop that can replace the Boa unit.
Thanks for the heads up guys! They actually did loosen up a little bit as most of you guys mentioned but never to the point where the Boa lost it's tension or the tongue coming loose. Overall, I like them better compared to conventional laces!
