Product Info

The Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots are designed to be the most surefooted and responsive boot on the market. Made for riders who hike, split, sled, or guide, the Driver X has an extremely stiff flex to provide the most support while pushing the limits of snowboarding as a whole. Despite the aggressive nature of the boot, its is still very warm and comfortable thanks to its Imprint™ 3x liner and Vibram® EcoStep™ rubber outsole. If you charge harder than an angry bull listening to Black Sabbath, the Burton Driver X boots are for you.

Product Details

Flex

Flex Rating: 10 (1 Softest - 10 Stiffest)The stiffest flex possible for superior control while shredding the hardest lines on the mountain

Rider Adjustable Flex Tongue InsertThe RAF Tongue Insert lets 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. Extra tall for added support on Imprint 3x liner

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

Fit

Total Comfort ConstructionGet 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 opening day to day 100.

Liner

Imprint™ 3x liner

Aegis™ Antimicrobial CoatingThis technology stops your feet from smelling so bad that your dog won't even greet you when you get home.

Rad PadThe pad is located on the top of your instep, right where the internal laces exert the most pressure, a Rad Pad has pre-curved panels for extra comfort, support and long-wear.

Tuff Cuff with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace LockAnkle support and inner cuff stability is mandatory in a pro-level boot. Burton's 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. Quick-Lock design keeps your heels locked down all day. Exit''s a cinch with the one-handed release tab.

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.

Sock LockThis directional fiber lining allows your feet to easily slide into place and stay in place from first chair to last call.

VELCO® liner closure

Lacing System

Speed Zone™ LacingLightning fast lacing control at its finest. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds; because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap and better response, all with less effort.

Footbed

Level 2 molded EVA footbed with ESS Support Shank

Sole

Vibram® EcoStep™ OutsoleGet the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight, 30% recycled (EcoStep™) construction. Includes the added cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.

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

Shrinkage Footprint Reduction TechnologyThis reduces the boot's overall footprint on 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.

Additional Features

Snow-Proof Internal GussetAll Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.

Super grip toe

Eco-friendly shell materials

    Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2014:

    Easily the stiffest boot on the market, by a pretty wide margin. They make the Travis Rice boot and Burton's own Ion look like socks in comparison; this is your last stop before you pick up hardboots. If you were disappointed with the softness of last year's boot, you'll be pleasantly surprised. I've ridden the same Driver X's for 7 years (since '07), and aside from modern liners and fabrics, it's essentially the same boot I bought back then.

    On the other hand, these boots could use a crampon-compatible option. I would also recommend not running the boot without the plastic inserts. The downside to the boots stiffness is the lack of articulation at the ankle. Without the insert, the boot bends rather awkwardly, and the narrow laces bite into the tongue creating a crease, which will wear out the tongue fabric much quicker. The tongue essentially lets the boot's character come out a bit better.

    Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2014:

    Don't be afraid of how "stiff" most reviewers say this boot is. The fact of the matter is that there is a big trend right now toward boots that are very soft and very light, which means they often sacrifice quality construction, high rebound materials, and overall support. This combination can lead to boots that look great on the shelf, ride awesome for 10 days and then breakdown fast. Even high-end boots like the Nike Lunarendor, which features adjustable flex inserts in the liner breaks down quickly. The Burton Driver X is one of the only boots I've found that feels sturdy, comfortable, and doesn't breakdown quickly. People call it "stiff," but really it's well-constructed and gives good freeride-feeling resistance when you flex forward. If you have a camber board and serious bindings, this is the boot for you. If you're riding a reverse camber or softer-side double camber, the driver will be too much boot. Highly recommended for those riders who put in more than 20 days a season and send it hard in all conditions.

    Note: order at least a full size smaller than your sneaker size. The reduction technology on these are incredible. I wear a size 9 skateshoe, used to ride size 8 Nike Lunarendors, and was able to fit comfortably into a 7.5 in the Driver X.

      Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2014:

      Bought these because my 2013 Ions packed out in 20 days. For resort riding I like a softer boot but need something stiff for splitboarding. For the ascent these things are excellent - stiff means lots of power transfer to the skis for gaining ground quickly. For the way down I can quickly loosen the top zone for a slightly softer boot to freeride in.

        Stiff. Powerful. Comfy. What else do you want in a powerful freeriding boot?
        If you're looking for fancy colors and bling go elsewhere but if you want the stiffest, most aggressive bot you can buy, grab some Driver X's!

          Perfect for big mountain lines. Hands down, this is the stiffest boot you can buy. Great for splitting and hiking, too. The Vibram sole grips. Speedzone is fast and simple. Great comfort. Hang on tight, the Driver will take your riding up a notch!

              Incredibly comfortable boot for how stiff it is; amazing construction and features. A must-have for anyone who wants an aggressive hard-charging boot that's built tough and ridiculously responsive.

                These boots are stiff, but great for expert/aggressive rider on steeps and moguls. They took 5+ days of hard riding to break-in and be comfortable. I used them half days in the beginning, because they hurt a bit. Now, they are incredibly responsive and comfortable. Make sure to give them time. I've been riding an older model of Driver X for 4 years, and these are even better!

                Comments about Burton Driver X Snowboard Boots 2014:

                When I first tried the old Driver X (2009/2010), I had to ask the lady if she brought the correct size because they felt way too comfortable, and I thought maybe she brought a bigger size. Even though they were super comfy, they were still stiff where and when I needed them to be. My old boots are already falling apart but they are still comfy and stiff (walking on parking lots has worn out the heel). I decided to go with the same boot for next season, and I got these on sale here evocom to have them ready for next season (maybe for some summer riding in south Chile/Argentina). Have only tried the new ones around home. They feel a lot stiffer because they are new. Still feel comfy and tight around the ankle and heel, but they do feel a tiny bit tighter (shorter) around the toes.
