The option of being able to only lock the ankle while touring and leave the rest loose sounds good!
This is possible with many other boots as well. The problem is: as soon as you are sidehilling (especially on firm snow), the support from the upper section helps dramatically.
So keeping the upper part loose is only an option for going straight.


It's not exactly the same, the new Deeluxe summit includes a Boa system that only works in your ankle, while the rest of the boot has the deeluxe fast lace system. So you have many different options of getting your boot loose: upper part, lower part, ankle with the boa system.

I like to have my boots tighten even all day while touring, because as you say, sidehilling it's completely necessary, but using this boa system to have your ankle in place while the rest of the boot is more loose is a good improvement for a softboot, allowing a better touring performance.

Yeah the soft tail seems to be the only thing that doesn't make sense on a board with the XV stamp on it. I guess board sales will get a lot better if they take what everyone likes about the experience and make it in an everyman option. but i thought thats what the krypto was for.

As for the boa system in the summit, this isn't a new idea. Deeluxe has already been doing it with the vicious along with a speedlace style system with their soft boot the brisse. I don't know if touring with the other laces completely loose is exactly the best idea, but the boa focus really does keep your heellift to a minimum.

Here's G3's ad copy on the board:

G3 Blacksheep Splitboard - The Blacksheep marks G3’s debut in splitboard snowboards, rounding out G3’s line to include the full range of backcountry-touring equipment. A mid-wide, all-mountain backcountry board, the Blacksheep is designed for the backcountry snowboarder seeking out deep powder stashes and steep lines. Lightweight, performance and durability are achieved with G3’s CarbonLight construction, which combines carbon and glass fiber laminates, a Poplar/Paulownia hybrid wood core, with unique semi-cap construction. The Blacksheep Splitboard offers excellent floatation as well as solid edge hold due to an innovative, low-profile full reverse camber, inspired by G3’s award-winning freeride skis. Coming in on the heels of G3’s popular, category-leading splitboard climbing skins, the Blacksheep is helping G3 to push backcountry snowboarding to its fullest potential. Available in 158, 162, 168. (300/257/292; 7 lbs. 6 oz. in 158cm). $749.95
