    Comments about Ride Snowboards Insano Focus Boa:

    i get in over 30 to 40 days worth of riding in the winter season and looking for a quality in a product that will last over two seasons these boots are not that over time the boa system will loosen off and you will have to always tighten them up after each run, there quality control should be better my boots did not even come with insoles in them i had to get a different brand, construction could be better when pulling the two tongues apart to get your foot in the side webbing that connects to the outside tongue is very thin and doesn't last
    these boots and this company need some work not very happy with spending so much on a pair of boots and a set of ride bindings and won't be keeping them for next year go 32 and go union bindings

      Comments about Ride Snowboards Insano Focus Boa:

      This is my first experience on Ride gear since the Preston horseshoe bindings and my first experience with Boa lacing as well. I wanted a stiff boot and this is what was recommended, so with much trepidation after using traditional lacing for 20 years, I stepped in.

      Dang, these are awesome. I broke them in by wearing them a few weeks at home when running errands in the house and teaching a friend on the bunny slope with the closure pretty loose.

      They're comfy, responsive, warm (not hot), stiff, but not ski-boot stiff and the dual Boa Focus can't be beat. Super well designed too.

      Only gripe is that there's velcro on the liner to keep the tongue in place. If your sock slips down walking to the parking lot, that's gonna rub. It's probably a sock issue though... buy good socks.

        Comments about Ride Snowboards Insano Focus Boa:

        Innards of one boots lower section boa were toasted after three days riding. Lace was jammed in the boot, boa wouldn't release and could barely get my foot out. Got them replace (awesome store)... same problem. I think there's some serious problems with the focus boa system on these boots. Otherwise I'd give them a 5-star rating.

        really liked this boot from 2010-2011 solid/stiff boot for how light they are except hated the blown lite sole, too soft for sledding and not enough heel padding/protection. pls fix this. maybe they got it right in 2013

        I wear a 11 skate shoe in most brands... went to a 10 in this and it barely packed 1/4 size making it a perfect fit.

          I teach snowboading quite a bit as well as ride wherever. Insanos are suprisingly well suited to anything on the hill. stiff at first but break in quite quickly and never seem to get past the moderate flex which is great. The liner lends all the comfort and support in the world.

              So I had last years model insanos. They were just as light and the comfort to me is pretty much the same. I had a size 10 insano last year and got the 9.5 this year. I have ridden it 3 times. Its a comfortable and warm boot until I start to go heelside too much. The J bars really hurt my ankles and after awhile it will bruise. This happened to the last model too. I tried to have it thermoformed but it didn't make a differece. Anybody else have this. Otherewise the boot looks sick and its comfortable for most of the day and when i go toeside.

                Comments about Ride Snowboards Insano Focus Boa:

                as soon as i tried this boot on I knew it was for me. the fit was unbelievable. so comfortable and supportive. the focus boa is great and doesn't give a pressure point where most boas do. my only complaint which isn't much of a complaint, these boots are super stiff. Ive only rode them once so far which is why I'm not freaking out about them. they should break in to a nice semi stiff boot. I don't discriminate on the mountain,I ride everything from glades to moguls to the park and this boots fit the bill well. I wouldn't suggest this boot for someone that rides in the park solely, but if your looking for a boot to do everything with a focus on the mountain then stick with these. good work ride. my setup is now 100% ride! dh2.3, ex, and Insanos

                  I tried on the Insano boots today, we didnt have 13's (my size) so i tried on the 12's that we did have...i almost didnt notice that it was a size too small, they were more comfortable than my correct sized 06 Hails that i have broken in over 3 full seasons...im so excited for mine to get in

                  Dream liner is sick, double boa to tighten top and bottom separately, stylish in all black...just...INSANE
