Hardboots have their place too.

I know several very strong riders that get shit DONE in hard boots. Given time we can engineer a production snowboard specific hardboot that rips.

Nice comment Russman!
One note about this picture, the rider is wearing some Raichle Flexon type ski boots of some vintage-he has a quite narrow stance in the picture, and this would be necessary to use ski boots like this with very little medial/lateral flex. With a good modded AT boot a narrow stance is no longer needed, and one can take advantage of the greater stability afforded by a wider stance. With my modded AT boots, I ride the exact same stance as I use for soft boots: 21" width, 27-30 degrees front, 12-15 degrees back (exact angles determined by board width). I do not like duck stances, as they make it hard to see down the fall line when holding a frontside line on the steeps, but I see no reason why a properly modded AT boot would not work well for those who like to ride duck either.

I thought that was JJ for a minute with all the neon going on. :scratch: Wait a minute are all these new schooler with their florescent pants just biting this guys style or what. I guess we could just say there hard booters at heart and there true identity comes out in their choice of clothes.........Is this the point of the original post or did I miss something.

:disco: Freestylin' in fruitboots & a fartbag :disco:


I miss the '80s
flexons ruled in the era of rear entry :shock:
They still make them 25 yrs later for a reason
and the snowboard versions are still a great boot.
