Love it conceptually, especially that they’re doing an Atomic Hawx version. This bit bothers me.
BOA Ski Boots: All Your Questions Answered - Powder7 Lift Line BlogThe new BOA ski boots offer big benefits to skiers everywhere, but are they right for you? Dig into our bootfitters' thoughts on the new BOA system.www.powder7.com
We get it—you’re the raddest skier on the mountain. The good news is the boot brands and BOA know we put our gear through the ringer. The all new steel cable has a breaking strength of 550 lbs. That’s a lot of force. BOA designed the dial with a quick release system, so the dial pops off rather than shearing off. Held by that super strong cable, you won’t lose the dial in the snow or parking lot. It can be quickly snapped back on without any tools.
I won’t lose it because it pops off instead of shears? What’s the difference? If it indeed pops off, yeah, I think I could lose it in the snow. Then what? Pop off the other so I can loosen the boot at the end of the day?
