TRIPLE BOA

Tech – Triple BOA

ENDO CONSTRUCTION

The Endo construction is based on a urethane endoskeletal structure that focuses boot structure and flex into a single engineered part. The result is a structure that flexes and returns without breaking down when compared to the stitch and glue construction of traditional boots. So you get consistent flex and a boot that returns to a neutral riding position quicker and with more energy, which helps you ride longer.

Comments about Thraxis:

I bought these in 2011 and it's now 2016. I've ridden these boots 250 days. They're not as stiff as they once were, but I just bought a new pair of Maysis boots and put them on side by side. My 5 year old, 250 days of abuse, Thraxis boots were still stiffer. Needless to say I'm returning the Maysis and will probably buy a new pair of Thraxis.

I got custom inserts in these because the included inserts packed out in less than 50 days so be aware of that. My only other gripe would be the toe boa pretty much does nothing (which is why I tried the Maysis).

Anyway, these boots gave me five seasons of pow, cliff drops, steeps, 70mph groomers, and overall laser control over my board. And the fact that they're still stiffer than the next stiffest boot in K2s lineup says everything. Absolutely worth it if you plan on spending a lot of time in a snowboard boot.

    Comments about Thraxis:

    I have been riding these boots for six years now after going through a variety of boots from Ride, Burton, Salomon, and a K2 clicker model, and I am extremely happy with them. Very warm too, I haven't had cold toes since I started riding them.

    I have been riding for about 25 years in Montana, Alaska, B.C. Colorado, and NM. I like big lines, trees, and charging groomers fast. No park for me. I have a small, low-volume foot (9.5 narrow street shoe), and this is the first boot that offered me a good fit. I ride a Jones Flagship with Rome Targas and Katanas.

    I would warn you to go a full size down from your street size and add some insoles to get the best fit. Get them TIGHT in the store as they will pack out after about 7-10 days of riding. If you get them comfy in the store, they will be sloppy after a week of riding then they will pinch when you crank them down. If you get them tight, heat them, and ride them for 7-10 days the fit is perfect.

    Love these boots.

      Comments about Thraxis:

      I have been riding Thraxis for four or five seasons now as an instructor in Colorado. I find the lacing system solid and very adaptable, and the boot is durable. As I get in and out of my rear binding more than most people, I have taken to covering the right boot's stitching with shoe goo to prevent the stitching from wearing out prematurely. I usually get about a hundred days of wear out of a pair of Thraxis's. They are stiff out of the box, but will soften up over time. With all my gear on, I weigh over two hundred lbs., so I work my equipment fairly hard. Every snowboard boot I have ever owned softened up with prolonged use, so I think it is unrealistic to expect a boot to keep it's original stiffness over a long season. I have never had a Thraxis boa cable fail, but in the early years of this system, I had two cables break (these were other brands of boots). They were easily repaired at a slope side shop, and I keep and extra cable in my locker now (the current one has been in there for four seasons). My wife wishes K2 made a women's version of this boot.
