Burton Concord Boa 2016
DESCRIPTION:The Burton Concord Boa is on year two for Burton and another huge step towards the future of what snowboard boots will be. New for 2016 is the New England Ropes replacing the normal boa wire. These have a lifetime warranty and one of the strongest ropes in the world. This is not only an amazing double Boa but its also one of the lightest weight Boa boots ever. It also has Burton's imprint 3 liner with a new cuff system that wraps around the top of your foot better than ever as well as RAD dampening pads. And as with all Burton boots it uses Shrinkage, which is a footprint reduction technology making your boots outer sole fit a size smaller so you can get your normal size 12 boots onto a regular board.
Boot Flex: Medium 5/10 (1=soft, 10=stiff)
Lacing System: Double Boa Coiler with New England Ropes. Double boas help achieve your perfect fit with an upper and lower zone.
Total Comfort Construction - Get that broken in feel right out of the box with a fit that feels as good from day one to day one hundred.
Medium Flex power up tongue - Dual density tongue construction with 3D moulding to create a super durably and responsive tongue.
Shrinkage Footprint Reduction Technology - This technology is great, especially important if you're a guy with a bigger footprint. If you're a size 11 your footprint will be like a size 10 allowing you to get away with a normal width board and reducing toe drag.
Liner: Imprint 3 - Burton imprint liners start at 1 and go up to a 4. Just some of the features for the Imprint 3 are:
Focus Cuff - Heel lift sucks, boosting heel hold around the ankle with a slightly higher cuff. Add in the Velcro J bars and inner lace lock to keep your heel locked in place.
Rad Pad - Located by the top of your foot where your laces and heel strap exert the most pressure, keeps your blood pumping to your toes for less 'dead foot' and more comfort.
Cushioning / Traction:
EST Optimized Outsole EST is all about getting you closer to your board without too much getting in the way. A lower profile sole lowers your centre of gravity and improves board feel. All without compromising on cushioning thanks to the B3 gel inserts.
Sleeping Bag Reflector Foil - Low profile and light this technology reflects heat back into the feet to keep you toasty all day.
