DC Terrain Snowboard Boots - Black 2013
"Leather, lace, and a winch, sounds like a kinky night to me...the Terrain boot is the most progressive and innovative boot I have ever had!" - Torstein Horgmo
2012-2013 DC Terrain Snowboard Boot key features:
Unilite Outsole with Impact G Midsole - DC's proprietary boot outsole technology, Unilite provides traction, durability, dampening and cushioning all while drastically reducing weight. Unilite soles feature distinct tread patterns for ascending, descending, and skating around with DC's Push Zone tread pattern. This snow-shedding traction design also prevents snow from building up and clogging the bindings. For the ultimate in reduced weight and comfort, DC incorporates Impact G, their proven impact absorbing system that does not change properties under varied temperatures or climates.
Alpha Liner - Features Aegis Anti-Microbial Coating to prevent odor, Aerotech Ventilation System for breathability, full grain leather collar top for elevated comfort and fit, multi-density zones, neoprene ankle strap, and Anatomical J-Bars to create a better ankle pocket and to help minimize heel lift.
Full Grain Leather - The use of full grain leather not only provides a premium look, but also improves performance and durability. By impregnating the leather with silicone, these boots will last longer and continue to form to the rider's foot for a truly personalized fit.
Aerotech Ventilation System - Molded vents in the shell and liner work in unison to release unwanted moisture away from the rider’s foot. This proprietary system will keep your feet warm and dry and prevent bacteria build up.
Direct Power Lacing System - Strategically designed overlays in the boot's upper provide more power and leverage for optimal shell closure.
Wrap Lock - Wrap Lock hardware allows you to secure your laces from slipping by simply wrapping around the hardware. This can turn your traditional lace boot into a zonal closure system by locking the lace at key points.
The Winch System - DC's new system provides support at the in-step for additional heel hold after you have finished lacing your boot. They use the Boa closure system to target the sweet spot for superior heel hold and on-the-fly adjustability.
1:1 The Golden Last - A boot’s true performance can only be felt when you have a seamless fit from your foot in the liner and the liner in the shell. By making a Last for every whole and half size, DC provides this fit on every boot they make. Other benefits of their Golden Last are: smaller overall footprint, in-step reduction, toe box volume reduction, narrowed heel cup, anatomically correct fit, forward lean and defined J-Bars.
