For the uninitiated out there: Define BOA Lacing System
Avoid laces on motorcycles, sometimes they get tangled around things... think John Candy driving on the highway with both jacket sleeves stuck behind the seat- only downside is once tightened there is lots of extra lace to tuck somewhere.
Good point.Avoid laces on motorcycles, sometimes they get tangled around things... think John Candy driving on the highway with both jacket sleeves stuck behind the seat
Thank for the useful information.Had them on my snowboard boots for several years - they work well. Super quick in and out and can put as much tension as you like easily - only downside is once tightened there is lots of extra lace to tuck somewhere.
That CycleGear employees comment really doesn’t make any sense - BOA laces are very thin (and strong) and in my experience didn’t have any “memory” where they retained kinks or bends.
Helpful info. Thanks.I have a set. Couple years old. Surprised at how much I like them. Surprised at how quick they are to use. No evidence of them having a memory or becoming harder to tighten/loosen. FYI, these don't have laces flying everywhere. They wind up inside the mechanism. Would buy them over over types next time.
This kind of experience is what I was looking for. It works very slick. Easy to tighten and to loosen and get out of. I didn't know of long-term issues or hidden issues. Your reply answers these concerns.Been wearing the Revit Pioneer for 5 years. No issues whatsoever. Tightens boot all around and easy to tighten and to loosen without issue. Contrary to your supplier's opinion, the laces don.t get bent and create memory spots. Highly recommend this boot for fit and comfort. They also have a higher View attachment 305365
boot which I never tried.
That is the boot I am looking at in black. I actually ordered that boot in my size but it is too tight. It was long enough, but didn't have enough height from the sole to the top of my foot. So I had a half size larger sent to a Cycle gear store so I can try it on before taking. It's good to know the BOA lacing system still works well after two years. Thanks.I have a pair of these - Ikon Stormhawks. Lacing system works great. I've had them for about two years, no lacing issues at all.

Tried on a pair of these in a CycleGear store - no tag.I have Boa system Knox gloves. They work excellent and seem durable.
Tried on a pair of these in a CycleGear store - no tag.
I was like "man these are the coolest, best fitting, most protective gloves I've ever tried on!"
So I went to the counter and asked how much they were....
"Sir those are $299.99 plus tax - will that be cash or charge?"
Bought mine out of the UK for about half that. Quick shipping. Also my main jacket is now a Knox mesh riding shirt.The reason I went with these gloves is the plastic sliders on the wrists. Just received a set of their mesh gloves from Germany with these same sliders . Supposedly this reduces the chance of your shoulder buckling when you put that hand down in a wipeout.. Motoin.de seems to have the best pricing. Very quick shipping to Canada.
