Need to get the BOA boots faster than anticipated, cable snapped today when I was goofing around on my homemade rail at home.

They lasted two seasons though, way better than laces! IMO..
I had the K2 ones with just a single dial, should I go with Thirty-two or Ride?

What's wrong staying with K2? You can just change the cable too.

My older daughter has the Ride double boa and loves them.

I tried the 32 Focus boa last year and then chose the Vans but in hind sight the 32s might have been a better choice as I think they would have fared better.

If I had to buy right now I'd likely get the 32s

Edit: sorry, all the boots I talk about are double boas. My younger daughter is 9 and she's had the K2 single boas for 3 seasons now and is happy with them but that's probably not relevant to you

I just have the single dial, they tend to loosen up while I ride at times. I might stay with K2 if I can find some better ones. Mine are pretty beat up and the toe is starting to blow out. They're done. haha
I don't buy boots very often, really like the BOA system though.

Thanks!

Did you inspect for frays/weak spots before the break?

Just curious, as I have BOA and I yank those lower straps loose. I always check the cables that I can see and no frays.

Yeah they've been fraying for the last month or so, I've been waiting for them to go. Lasted way longer than I expected. Seemed to fray above my toes, I tend to yank them tight in spots before I crank the dail down, so that might of sped up the process.

If the boots are still good, you can just replace the BOA cable i am pretty sure.

Don't let me get in the way of getting new boots though.

I had a cable fray just above my toes on my first pair of Jackson Boas. I realized it was because I tended to rest my snowboard on my free foot on the lift. Was it your back foot that broke? If so, you're probably cutting the cables with your edge.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

Yah, I still enjoy doing this too, so I put a thin felt or rubber pad over that part of my boot and no worries from there.
