Setting the bar higher in every discipline is still the headline for the ever responsive Burton Ion™. The only choice for riders like Mark McMorris and Danny Davis, the Ion is legendary for its stacked tech package upgraded with a Burton-exclusive NEW Life Liner that adds seamless comfort, quicker response, and greater longevity to the equation. The full feature list includes AutoCANT EST® soles for natural lower body alignment and superior board feel, DRYRIDE Heat Cycle™ for enhanced warmth and moisture wicking, and ReBounce tech that both reflects body heat and cushions consistently in freezing conditions.
Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100. The Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology reduces the boot’s overall footprint in one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again. All Burton boot tongues feature a snow-proof internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
The firm flexing Powerup Tongue provides increased response with great rebound and durability.
The outer shell pressure relief panel provides Ultra-soft cushioning fused to the area where the ankle strap rests on the boot for even pressure distribution when bindings are cranked tight.
NEW LIFE LINER
The NEW heat-moldable Life Liner uses lightweight materials with a more relaxed feel for high-end performance that makes all the difference during long seasons filled with hard charging days. The responsive PU tongue provides a combo of cat-like quickness and long-term resistance to breakdown, while also accommodating a better fit for all foot shapes. The Life Liner adds a level 2 footbed with ESS Support Shank, Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating and extra DRYRIDE Heat Cycle™ material for added warmth. Tuff Cuff increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel.
EST® Optimized Sole
EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your center of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts. AutoCANT Dual-density EVA Cushioning allows your foot to settle into a more natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control. More comfort and more warmth with Rebounce Cushioning. The extra hops are accomplished by surrounding the foot with a two-layer 3D laminate of cushy PU plus reflective material, which not only reduces impact and absorbs chatter but also turns heat inward.
The Speed Zone™ Lacing features streamlined, re-profiled lace guides and jam cleats for increased performance and greater durability. The system retains lightning fast lacing control by allowing you to customize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds. More power means more rebound, wrap and response with less lacing effort. New England Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of Lifetime Warranty.
Please take care to measure your feet accurately. Snowboard boots are made in either US or Mondopoint (cm) sizes.
For your Mondopoint Size, measure your larger foot in centimetres with your heel against a hard surface.
Please consider that your usual European (EU) size, may be different in a snowboard boot.
When your boots arrive, if they feel tight, don't panic! Snowboard Boots have foam liners which will wear in over time.
