The 2015 Launch BOA is a supremely comfortable high performance boot suited for intermediate to advanced riders. The Boa lacing system ensures an easy to adjust, snug fit and the Silver Flex liner offers excellent support and response for any type of riding. Aesthetically speaking, the Launch is simple, low profile, you can tell that these are not your average boring black snowboard boot. This boot was built to last, fits and looks great and is incredibly comfortable, what more do you need?
Tongue Pull: A loop of fabric at the top of the tongue helps in putting on and removing the boots. Pull it forward and to the side and your foot should slide right in.
Removable Liner: This boot comes with a removable liner. Removable liners have the advantage of being easier to dry than non removable liners, and the disadvantage of usually being a little larger than a non removable linered boot of the same size.
Boa Lacing Technology: The awesome new setup that removes the only thing that sucks about snowboard boots: the laces.
The Boa system is laced cables of aircraft grade steel (no it doesn't add weight) that take the place of laces in keeping your boots tight. To tighten you simply push in the Boa housing button (to lock it in place), righty tighty turn the dial until you get the snug fit you desire. To remove the boot, you just pop (pull) the housing button and stretch out the tongue.
If it comes into your head how much nice this is at the top of the lifts on a cold day when you need to tighten up the boots, you are right on. We always recommend Boa boots. Competition level riders still require laces because they need to have the boot so tight it cuts off circulation, for the rest of the world the Boa system is the way to go.
Liner Lace Lock: This liner features a lace lock to speed up the process of putting boots on. Just pull the lace tab upward until snug, then slide the lace lock down into place. It will ensure the boots stay snug throughout the day. When the day is over, just pull up on the lock knob and slide the foot out. Piece of cake!
Mystic Footbed: Relief through reflexology. The only antimicrobial footbed in snowboarding that increases blood circulation, prevents fatigue and embodies natural healing from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head.
Silver Flex Liner: Displacing liner lace pressure form the top of your foot, around the key holding areas of the arch and above the heel. Extra Mid Flex pad over the ankle area to team up comfort
Custom Fit Liner: For increased comfort and maximum foothold, Custom Fit has heat moldable foam strategically placed in the sensitive areas of the foot, shin, ankle, and heel.
Heel Grip Feature: There is a patch of Cat-Tongue non-slip material in the heel pocket so your socks are perfectly gripped into the boots for increased heel-hold.
