The DC Men's Travis Rice Boa Snowboard Boot offers a stiff, highly responsive flex, with technological upgrades to keep your feet happier than ever when you're slaying steeps, sending monstrous booters, and surf slashing powder. New for this season, the boot's asymmetric articulating cuff locks in powerful support on the lateral side, with a bit more freedom along the medial side to really tweak out grabs with style. The Boa Focus closure independently tightens the upper and lower zones for the utmost in responsive energy transfer. The beauty with the Boa Focus system lies within its ability to lock down your heel during high speed riding. This is great if you're often lacking support, due to a skinnier heel shape. It also works great for anyone desiring the quick turning convenience of separate upper and lower Boa dials. Additionally, this specific Boa Focus uses stainless steel laces to prevent corrosion and breakdown, which is especially important for riders like Travis who spend countless days deep in the backcountry. Loaded with DC's top shelf Black SE liner, this boot comfortably wraps around your foot without pesky pressure points or weird hot spots. Its thermo moldable foam conforms to the shape of your foot and ankle over time. You can heat mold 'em straight away for a great fit or simply ride a few sessions to achieve the same foot conforming fit. Moreover, you'll appreciate the supreme cushioning of the Impact S footbed when you're sending massive jumps like Travis well, we can try anyway or blasting over choppy chunder. Another big upgrade for this year, the Asymmetrical Anti Drag sole shaves off key areas along the toe and heel to eliminate drag, especially when you're carving on steep terrain. This asymmetric sole blends grippy rubber with DC's feathery Unilite foam for a balance of sure footed traction and lightweight feel.
