Anyone out there riding boots with this lacing system? I've got a pair of DCs and really like them, however its time for new ones. I was going to get either the Driver X or the Malamute's but I decided that I think I really want to stay with the BOA system. It's just so easy to tighten and loosen my boots without taking my gloves off. Looking to see who's got a good boot with that system. Looking for something on the stiff side. Any recommendations before I start looking? Thanks.

Burton's 2 zone speed lacing system has been excellent for me.

i have this year's Driver X boots. the two zone is super easy and you can adjust the snugness easily.

the salomon system is way easy too.

i think you'd be happy with either boot. go try them both on and choose from fit.

I have both, vans boa and driver x with speed lace. I gotta agree with the guys above. Driver x is better, not to mention the grips on the sole.

i as well have the new driverX and didnt think i would like them just bought them on closeout (gotta love the BIN) but just slipped my foot in there and was amazed that they were perfect. i tried the ruler and Ion and they SUCKED!! too a chance with the DriverX and cant believe the difference. What a stiff a$$ boot. Great Traction.

SpeedZone super quick and easy.

Bought a pair of K2 T1's with the BOA, I hate them, seem to tighten in all the wrong spots and not in the right ones. Also have a wakeboard with BOA system boots which I'm not thrilled with either: the damn knob keeps busting off. I've learned to have a replacement knob but laces fit the if it aint broke why fix it catagory of technology.

Anybody want a pair of K2 T1's real cheap? Barely used :D .

I've been riding the Vans BOA for two years and love them. I keep them a little loose for the ascent and then tighten them down when riding.
