Product Info

What do the Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots have in common with screwdrivers and race car drivers? Functionality and speed. Oh yeah. These boots are perfect for sketchy bootpacks and the exposed lines that all of your friends are afraid to ride. Already the most supportive boot in snowboarding, the Driver X has been newly redesigned with Total Comfort for a broken-in feel the very first day out. Built with an eco-conscience, it's the obvious boots for riders who hike, sled, guide, or patrol, as well as freestyle technicians like Frederik Kalbermatten and Kazu Kokubo.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)10, perfect for all-mountain and freestyle riders

Removable Rider-Adjustable Flex Tongue InsertLets you customize the forward flex, increasing the support, response, and life of your boots

Lightweight Power PanelsTo ensure consistent flex from day 1 to 100, this boot features strategically placed Power Panels that return to their original position even after being deeply flexed.

Fit

Firm Flex 3D® Molded TongueAdjusting the profile of the tongue’s thickness controls its flex, enhances its ability to wrap the forefoot, and reduces shell/liner stack-up for improved comfort.

Tuff CuffIncreases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel

Focus CuffBoosting heel-hold by hugging that sweet spot around your ankle, the Focus Cuff rides slightly higher on your ankle for increased response.

Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction TechnologyThis reduces the boot's overall footprint one size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, and sleeker means that you will never have to suffer from toe drag again.

VELCRO® Brand Fastener J-Bar InterfaceThis interface is located in the heel pocket for added support.

Total Comfort ConstructionAn instantly broken-in feel right out of the box

Liner

Imprint™ 3x Liner

Heat MoldableWhether you have funky cankles or a grotesque sixth toe, your feet will be wrapped with comfort in this boot. Ride them right out of the box or shape them to your foot with Burton's EMU heat-molding system, found at your local shop.

Rad PadThis cushioning is located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure. These pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.

Inner Lace LockQuick-lock design keeps your heels locked down all day. Exit's a cinch with the one-handed release tab.

Sock LockThis directional fiber lining allows your feet to easily slide into place and stay in place all day.

VELCRO® Brand Fastener Liner ClosureThis secures the liner in place around your foot. J-Bar adjustable heel system slides into the heel pocket for added support.

Lacing System

Speed Zone™ LacingCustomize the fit of the upper and lower zone in seconds, allowing for a lightning fast lace up. With less effort you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response. Used by stunt men, firefighters, and rescue teams, this lace material is virtually indestructible.

Footbed

Level 3 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank

Snow-Proof Internal GussetFeatures internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.

Aegis™ Antimicrobial CoatingInhibits foul odors

Sole

Vibram® EcoStep™ Rubber OutsoleGet the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight, 30% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA.

B3 GelThis gel is placed in the heel and toe for ultimate dampening formulated to withstand repeated impacts without breaking down.

Rubber Ice SpikesSoft and grippy with stiffer spikes that dig into ice when slipping isn't an option

Additional Features

Eco-Friendly Synthetic Leather Upper Materials

Super Grip ToeFor ultra traction

    Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2013:

    Bought these in November to start off another great season in Colorado! You won't be dissapointed. Burton has done an amazign job in constructing thses boot along with the Vibram outsole. These are by far the best boots o have ever owned. They beat my 2010 DC Tourch BOA boots for comfort and quality, which is saying somthing. If you are a serious rider and want some really good ankle support pick up a pair!

      Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2013:

      Backcountry dream boot due to the stiffness. Certainly not has plushy as the Ion, but not uncomfortable. I think Burton has the best, easiest lacing system, hands down. For big mountain freeriding, there just isn't a better boot that I've found.

        Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2013:

        I've had a pair of Burton Drivers almost since starting about 10 years ago. I had transitioned from skiing and wanted a fairly stiff boot from the beginning. After 10 years, the boot was starting to get soft and I tried some other models but didn't like them. I really wanted to get a new pair of Drivers but pricing was an issue. I couldn't pass up Evo's sale price so I ordered a pair and have not been disappointed at all. Support, comfort, easy lacing, etc all great!

        Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2013:

        After riding with the Driver X for 8 years I decided to switch to the Burton Ion boots earlier this year. The Ion are really good boots for the fit, style, and comfort. But after 2 weeks I had to switch back to the 2013 Driver X, if you are an all mountain rider that goes fast and go after everything on the mountain you will need the stiffest boots. And you will get the performance and control in the Driver X!

          I have used these boots for a few weeks now, both in Big Sky, MT and Summit County, CO resorts and backcountry. I noticed immediate improvement and stability. They really help me on my landings, too, so I have more confidence to go big! Great support on the steeps. I love my new boots!
