The Ion has firmly established itself as one of the very best all mountain snowboard boots on the market. It's combination of state of the art construction, high performance and unrivalled fit and comfort have made it the go to boot for experienced riders. With a responsive and dynamic flex it's the perfect choice for anyone who wants the ultimate in control and response but who still wants a boot that's going to be relatively playful. Utilising Burton's easy entry Speed Zone Lacing and the advanced Life Liner you really need to get a pair of these on your feet to understand just how special they are.
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 Rope laces add a virtually indestructible character worthy of our Lifetime Warranty.
LIFE LINER WITH DRYRIDE HEAT CYCLE
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.DRYRIDEHEAT CYCLE:Warmth and wicking are two key traits for on-snow comfort. Our 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 for all day comfort.
Ankle support and inner cuff stability is mandatory in a pro-level boot. Our solution is the Tuff Cuff, which increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel.
LOW-PROFILE EST® OPTIMIZED MIDSOLE FEATURING AUTO CANT AND REBOUNCE
EST® goes beyond bindings by optimizing the soles on select boots for a more direct connection. Lower-profile, lighter weight, and with a reduced ramp angle, EST lowers your centre of gravity and improves feel. All without sacrificing an ounce of cushioning thanks to ultra-dampening B3 Gel inserts. AUTO-CANT: Dual-density EVA allows your foot to settle into a more natural and relaxed position, resulting in improved comfort, reduced fatigue, and smoother, more direct board control.RE-BOUNCE: This Burton-exclusive 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.
FLEX AND RESPONSE:
1:1 FIRM FLEX POWER UP TONGUE
For greater rebound and durability the Ion features this dual density Tongue construction.
OUTER SHELL PRESSURE RELEI PANELS
These strategically placed notches minimise shell distortion and allow for a smoother more fluid toe and heelward flex.
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 100.
SHRINKAGE FOOTPRINT REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY
You know what they say about guys with big feet, right? Big socks. Shrinkage™ 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.
SNOWPROOF INTERNAL GUSSET
All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
LEVEL 2 MOULDED EVA FOOTBED WITH ESS SUPPORT SHANK
The added support reduces fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
