Change your perception of entry level boots the minute you slide your feet into the ultra plush, super secure fitting Ride Men's Rook Boa Snowboard Boot. Compared to other beginner oriented boots, the Rook is a bonafide bargain, fusing the best of comfort and performance into a palatable price point that leaves cash for lift tickets and other gear upgrades. Dialed with a progression friendly, mid soft flex that's similar to Ride's Orion Boot, the Rook delivers an optimum blend of mobility and support for riders honing their skills from blue square groomers to first tracks through powdery bowls. Upgraded over the similarly spec'd Orion, the Rook's super convenient Boa lacing system secures the boot's upper and lower zones with the quick spin of a dial. Suddenly, tightening the boots is a breeze, especially when you're making re adjustments on the middle of the mountain. Inside the Rook, you'll find a thermo moldable Intuition Plush Foam liner that conforms to your foot's specific contours to eliminate uncomfortable pressure points and nasty hot spots. Internal J bar support locks down your heel to eliminate dreaded lift when you're mastering your heel to toeside carves. Lock Down Turbo liner lacing also keeps your heel nice and secure in the boot during high speed maneuvers and regular riding scenarios. Toss in an impact absorbing die cut EVA footbed, as well as a lightweight Grip Sole for a well rounded boot that's ready to take your riding to the next level.
