LEVEL

 

*Intermediate: Look for snowboard boots which are flexible, comfortable and forgiving.

Separate fastening

Some boots have separate fastening, ie the upper part and the lower part of the boot can be tightened separately for greater precision:

- tightening the bottom more offers greater support, tightening less offers greater comfort

- tightening the upper part more provides more rigidity to the boot (= increases the flex)

 


In short, to choose the boots that are right for you, keep in mind:

- your level and your style of snowboarding

- Warmth & comfort: cold, frictions and pression of the bindings

- Grip: The grip of the sole on the snow and on a frozen parking lot or on the board.

- Stiffness or flex: The stiffness (or flex) of the boots in the front (for frontside turns), in the back (for backside turns), but alos on the side for freestyling tricks and rotations.

- Hold: heel, foot, board control

 

 

my tip

Don't hesitate to pull the inner boot out when you try the boots on, and compare the different inner boots, they will teach you a lot on how well you will feel with them on when riding.

Have a good season!
