Slightly softer than the Ruler and Hail, it offers a high-performance ride for those who prefer the stealth support and powerful lacing control of Speed Zone. Lightweight tech includes the Wishbone upper cuff with Jumper Cables on both sides for twice the snap, rebound, and life without sacrificing the high tweak-ability of a softer boot. So if you are looking for a comfortable and extremely lightweight boot, this is it. The speed zone lacing is extremely easy to use and does a great job of holding your foot firmly in this super rad model. Be sure to stop in and see this as well as all the other great snowboard boots that Alpine has to offer.
