The DC Scout BOA has a good all mountain flex. This boot will take you all over the mountain with enhanced board feel from the Low Profile Rubber Cup Sole, zero heel lift with the Delta Liner and the fast and easy BOA lacing will save your hands some torment.
I have a little older set of these and i really like them. for the price you get a nice looking, comfy boot with good feel and a single boa system, can't beat it. one drawback is that the single boa system seems to require a little experimentation for getting the correct tension. once you figure that out they work quite well, but may require some further adjustment during the day.
as for the strength of the cables themselves, i can comment. i have heard people say they are turned off by boas because of the possibility of a cable breaking. apparently this can happen, but i'd just like to say mine are around 4 years old and they haven't broken.
when i buy a new set i plan to go to the double boa system the judge offers. but if you want to spend $100 less, go for the scout. it's a good boot
these are very good boots...look good.. long lasting..but if you are thinking about buying them you atleast need to get a whole size bigger, i got 10 1/2 when i wear a 10 normally and they are still pretty tight, other then that i love these boots, they are very strong and look amazing
I'm pretty fond of these boots. I bought them last year and despite some other reviews, I thought they were pretty comfortable. I even used them in town to run errands from time to time and they still felt fine. They grip well and are stylish
I got these boots because I didn't want to lace my boots, but I couldn't afford a two boa system boot. They're pretty comfortable and I haven't had any issues as far as pressure points or anything like that. The only thing is that the boot loosens pretty easily so you should always check. Otherwise, I'm extremely happy with them considering the price. Definitely try them on before you buy them though
Son muy buenas botas y sobre todo a bajo precio. Si bien son basicas, para los livianos funcionan muy bien y no se deforman. Mi hijo las uso en 2010, y quedaron impecables. Este a?�?�o 2011, se han eliminado los plasticos por donde pasaban los cables del boa, sobre el empeine, con lo cual, el cable apoya directamente sobre la tela y pienso que puede ocasionar algun desgaste prematuro. Habra que considerarlo luego del uso
