Our favorite season is right around the corner and it’s finally time to ditch the old gear without breaking the bank. Wintersport technology has come a long way since skiing in jeans and few companies are leading the way like Burton. Their new Jet Snowboarding Boot ($150) packs the tech in without the credit card headache. The boot launches your ride (sorry, had to) with innovations like 20% weight reduction, an internal gusset system to keep the foot and toes dry and warm, and most notably, Burton’s exclusive Speed Dial Lacing System. This new and improved lacing system is a faster upgrade for riders who prefer to twist their laces tight. Unlike other systems that need to be locked and unlocked, Burton’s micro-adjustable, self-locking system saves time by letting you tighten or loosen the fit without starting over. Exit is easy with a quick pull of the dial-top loop.

A decade ago, 1 in 10 people on the mountain were snowboarders. Today, 1 in 10 are still fighting the dreaded “French-fry” and “pizza” all the way down the bunny slope. With innovations like the Jet Boot from Burton leading the way, it’s easy to see why the sport is still at the top of its game.
