686 Times New Balance SpeedLace 580 Snowboard Boots - Grey 2013
Based upon the original MT580 trail running sneaker, 686 and New Balance have revamped the newly improved SpeedLace 580 snowboard boot with a better fit, increased stability, superior flex, a lower profile and overall lighter weight. Also included are NB's proprietary Rollbar and Abzorb technologies combined with "Quick-Strike" Velcro straps, the patented SCL zonal quick lacing and an improved dual density EVA liner.
2012-2013 686 Times New Balance SpeedLace 580 Men's Snowboard Boots key features:
ROLLBAR Technology - This technology features a lightweight graphite stability positioning system that provides optimal heel support and transfers any motion directly to the board and binding. Because of the added stability, ROLLBAR allows the use of exceptionally soft, highly shock absorbing EVA that provides superior comfort and shock absorption at impact.
Dynalite MF Liner - The all-new Dynalite liners are designed to cling to the foot, even out pressure points and absorb the shock of impact by dispersing the energy throughout the body. The Dynalite liner is 37% lighter than a regular liner, thus more comfortable for a longer period of time as it provides the optimum amount of compression. Dynalite is highly engineered foam with a consistent cell wall structure, uniform cell size and consistent shell shape which allows it to recover its original shape three times better than conventional foam. This liner also features asymmetrical Memory foam C-Pads that adjust to the shape of the ankle for optimal heel hold while shielding the ankle from unwanted pressure.
SCL Lacing System - Section Control Lacing is the most convenient and precise lacing system around. With the help of both handles, you can lace the boot in three zones - forefoot, heel and calf. Even in your bindings, you can easily adjust the laces. The US patented SCL is a true breakthrough in speed lacing.
