Driven by the needs of 100 day a year riders, the Burton Men's SLX Snowboard Boot represents the pinnacle of performance within Burton's line, retaining its mid stiff flex, high levels of cushioning, and ultra precise fit without packing out or breaking down over the course of the season. Its futuristic Dragon Skin TPU shell reinforces the boot against rips, scratches, and premature blowouts, which is highly useful for daily riders and those earning turns in the backcountry. Other high end features include a Vibram XWing sole for rugged resilience and grip, as well as Burton's Speed Zone lacing for quick and easy tightening over the upper and lower zones. Standing out from hordes of other premium boots, the SLX's Infinite Ride 5 Liner is made from open cell foam that won't break down, giving you a consistently tuned flex without it packing out or losing response. The liner's DryRide Heat Cycle lining uses interwoven, thermally activated carbon to retain extra warmth on sub zero shred days. Other standout features remain, such as an Aegis antimicrobial coating to combat funky odors, as well as a thermo moldable fit that eliminates nasty pressure points. Dissipating impact from harsh landings and choppy conditions, the boot's Rebounce Cushioning surrounds the foot with a double layer of PU plus for extra shock absorption. Dual density cushioning along the sole features softer EVA along the instep, with denser EVA along the outer edge. This allows the foot to roll inward for a more natural stance similar to canting that reduces stress and fatigue. Add in Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil underneath footbed for extra heat retention when you're riding in Arctic cold snaps and raging snowstorms alike.
