It allows you to adjust the top and bottom portions of the boot independently for a custom fit. It’s easy to use, too. Simply pull on the laces to tighten and lock them by tucking in the clasp.

Burton uses laces manufactured by New England Ropes. The same rope is used for shark fishing. Honestly don’t worry – they won’t break!
Speed Zone laces are also rad because they’re much faster than traditional laces. While it’s certainly preference, some people just prefer Speed Zone.

Ladies, not to say that you are the weaker sex, but it can be tough for some gals to tighten the boots to the desired fit. Speed Zone makes it easy and effortless to tighten those babies up.

Have you ever had your heel slide up the back of the boot or just feel some movement in your boots when your digging deep? That won’t happen with Speed Zone. Get ready to step it up this year.
