Riders looking for a hassle-free experience on splitboard tours should take a serious look at the Burton Tourist Snowboard Boots. They deliver an ultra-smooth skin up with improved negative flex and impressive traction in sketchy zones thanks to the Rubber Ice Spikes. A full-custom Life Liner provides top-notch cushioning so you can bet your apres-beer you’ll be ready to ride the next day. Tour-specific features and the time-tested comfort of Burton’s boot construction makes the Burton Tourist Snowboard Boots quite the catch for determined splitters.
Increased Negative Flex for Improved Glide and Comfort in Touring Mode
Total Comfort Construction – 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 day 100.
1:1 Firm Flex PowerUP Tongue – Burton offers 1:1 lasting on every boot. It means every half and full size shell, tongue, and out sole offer a precise fit that is not as common as one would think. Drop your loot on a Burton boot and you won’t be stuck with the slop of a mismatched shell and liner. PowerUP tongues feature additional dual-density material for rebound and durability.
Tuff Cuff – Ankle support and stability is mandatory in a pro-level snowboard boot. Tuff Cuff increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel.
Life Liner – The Life Liner fuses 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 construction provides a combo of cat-like quickness and long-term resistance to breakdown, while also accommodating a better fit for all foot shapes.
DryRide Heat Cycle™ Lining – Warmth and wicking are two key traits for on-snow comfort. Burton’s breathable inner-lining technology utilizes interwoven thermally activated carbon thread to capture, radiate, and reflect body heat inward to keep feet warmer while also wicking heat-robbing moisture outward. Look for varying amounts and performance level of each liner.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating – Antimicrobial coating on the lining of the boot fabric keeps your boots from creating their own mini-ecosystem of stink by preventing the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Speed Zone™ Lacing System w/ *NEW Components – Strong and low-profile, Speed Zone™ Lacing features lightning fast lacing control while 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 Ropes laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of Burton’s Lifetime Warranty.
New England Rope Laces – Offering warrantied-for-life performance, these natural fiber ropes equal a more natural flex and feel for greater all-day comfort.
Level 2 EVA Footbed – EVA Footbeds are lightweight, long-lasting and absorb shock.
ESS Support Shank – This is an added support feature to help soften hard landings.
Low-Profile EST® Optimized Midsole – EST® goes beyond bindings by drawing inspiration from the surf/skate heritage of snowboarding and giving you a more direct connection to your board. By eliminating the ramp angle of your outsole, EST lowers your center of gravity, improves board feel, and creates a more surf/skate-like feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening ReBounce and B3 Gel Inserts.
Vibram® EcoStep™ – Made of 30% recycled materials. This outsole has excellent grip and traction from rubber ice spikes but remains lightweight. ReBounce Cushioning, EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe area for extra comfort.
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology – This reduces the boot’s overall footprint 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.
B3 Gel – Ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down or hardening up in cold temps.
ReBounce Cushioning – Brings cushioning closer to your foot than ever before by placing it within the shell of the boot for an added layer of impact protection that sits directly below your foot. Added warmth and consistent performance in cold temperatures is achieved by wrapping it in a heat-reflective material that keeps the cushioning soft and effective.
Sleeping Bag Reflective Foil – This low-profile and lightweight underfoot technology reflects heat back to the feet, improving both warmth and comfort when faced with cold conditions.
Rubber Ice Spikes – Soft and grippy overall with the added traction of stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn’t an option.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset – All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping your feet warm and dry.
