if any company would make russo's dream boot, it would be La Sportiva (that carbon xcross boot is sick). Burton might, but I doubt they have the incentive with such low production numbers.


I spoke with a guy at Goretex today, and I realize that the sky is the limit in terms of waterproof and breathable boots.

After getting out on my Ride RFL's, I also realize how critical the weight component is. If any of you own a pair of the 32 Ultralights or RFL's, its so amazing how having literally a few ounces on your feet saves hours of energy throughout the day.

I have a few drawings of a prototype snowboard specific, fully rigid, ultralight Vibram sole.

Its going to happen you guys!

I have to admit that I have not read much of this thread yet, but posted this in the market research thread in the binder section:

My ideal boot and binding combo:

1. hardboot lower with built in replaceable ratchets. A softboot binder with stiff highacks and super short ladder straps so when you step into the binder, the ladders engage into the ratchets automatically. Then tighten to your liking. Lower should incorporate carbon fibre like the Apex ski boot.

It should also incorporate the toe and heel pieces for crampons and have a vibram mountaineering sole.

2. softboot upper with boa liners and either boa or locking eyelets


I truly think that there are positives to both hardboot and softboot setups and they can be combined to make this boot/binding setup one of the best technological advances in splitboarding history.
