Burton Ion Snowboard Boots - Black/Grey 2013
Legendary whip, now with Pirelli grip.
2012-2013 Burton Ion Men's Snowboard Boot key features:
Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology - Shrinkage reduces the boot's overall footprint one full size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a 10, but has the footprint of a typical 9. Shorter, lighter, and sleeker - never suffer from toe drag again.
Speed Zone Lacing System - Speed Zone gives you lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper and lower zones of the boot in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap and better response - with less effort. Virtually indestructible, New England Ropes' laces are the same stuff used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams.
Imprint 4 Liner - Key Ingredients: DRYRIDE Moisture Wicking Tech, Focus Cuff with Velcro J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock, Aegis Antimicrobial Coating, Lightweight Power Panels, Sock Lock, Rad Pad for Lace Comfort, Velcro Liner Closure, Heat Moldable, InfiniFIT Liner Sole, and Level 3 molded EVA footbed with ESS support shank, dual-density cushioning and Aegis
Dryride Moisture Wicking Technology - DRYRIDE Hyperwick mesh in the toe box both insulates and regulates warmth by pulling moisture away from your skin, then evaporating it through a waterproof/breathable shell membrane. Like a one-way door, the microscopic pores in this membrane allow moisture vapors to escape, while water droplets from the outside can't enter.
Rad Pad - Located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
InfiniFIT Liner Sole - An industry first. Fusing a cushioned EVA platform to the footprint of select Imprint liners creates a more consistent out-of-box fit that stays true-to-size by preventing pack out. The supportive platform also improves rebound, comfort and cushioning for the life of your liners.
Low-Profile EST Optimized Midsole - EST goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST optimized soles lower your center of gravity and improve feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 gel inserts.
AutoCANT Cushioning - Dual-density EVA allows your foot to settle into the most natural and relaxed positions, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue and smoother, more direct board control.
Firm Flex Thin Profile 3-D Molded Tongue - Adjusting the profile of the tongue’s thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the foot/ankle/lower leg and reduces shell/liner stack-up for improved comfort. Burton offers their 3-D tongues in Soft, Medium, and Firm flexing options based on the riding style of each boot.
Seamless Power Spine Backstay - The power spine backstay allows for fine-tuned medial/ lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and durability.
Total Comfort Construction - Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort's industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from shop floor to season opener and everyday thereafter.
Outer Shell Pressure Relief Panel - Ultra-soft gel cushioning is fused to the area where the ankle strap rests on the boot to evenly distribute pressure when bindings are cranked tight.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset - All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
