2013 Burton Emerald Women’s Snowboard Boot
12 Oct, 2012
Support, speed, response, comfort– the Burton Emerald women’s snowboard boot has all these things and more. With a new liner and cuff, the Emerald snowboard boot has what the aggressive lady shred wants to get things done on the hill.
With a feel rating of 5 of 10, the Burton Emerald is a boot that will support its rider in the gnarliest of conditions, but still be soft enough to put some finesse on rails. Burton’s True Fit system ensures that this ladies’ boot responds to the ladies’ needs. Total Comfort Construction also eliminates the break in period and the guess work of wondering if the boot will stay solid all season.
The Emerald is a quick boot to put on, take off and adjust. Instead of regular laces, the Emerald comes with Burton’s Speed Zone lacing system that gives true zonal control over how tight the fit is. Winder handles let the rider make adjustments with or without gloves and stow away nicely in convenient side pockets. Speed Zone is the fastest lacing system, according to Burton, but also features the same laces used by stunt men, rescue teams and firefighters. Less time lacing means more time racing.
There are a few key aspects of the Emerald that give it good response. To translate the rider’s movements into the snowboards performance, the Emerald has the Imprint 2 heat moldable liner, the new Lock-Up Cuff and the Power Spine back-stay. The Imprint 2 liner is moldable to the rider’s feet, has Velcro closures and lightweight power panels for a custom performance fit. Also, the Lock-Up Cuff has a lower profile that brings the laces across the foot and ankle to provide the ultimate in heel-hold. The Power Spine back-stay quickly transfers toe and heel pressure to the snowboard’s edges for added performance as well.
Comfort is often a critical element compromised for the sake of performance, but with the Burton Emerald snowboard boots, no compromise is needed. The heat moldable liner and Hot Pockets give a custom fit and extra heat if needed. A lightweight 270º airbag keeps the feet cushioned for the ride. To hold, support and fit your calf, the Plush Cuff stretches and contours to make it right. Like all Burton products, the Emerald snowboard boot is designed from the floor up specifically for the female rider.
If you are looking for a boot that will take everything you can give, and then some, then the Burton Emerald is the way to go.
