DC Travis Rice Review
Without a doubt Travis is at the pinnacle of his career and he has taken backcountry snowboarding to a whole other level. You could put this guy in anything and he is going to be the greatest rider, it doesn’t matter if it DC or Nike- Travis is Travis.
The one thing Travis does well is that he pays attention to how his name is used, and to what brands they are being used for. You can almost guarantee that if it has Travis Rice’s name on it, it’s not going to suck.
So what makes the DC Travis Rice boot special? For one the asymmetrical outsole, yeah you heard it right this boot is shaped differently on the outside edge, allowing you to reduce ever having to deal with dreaded toe and heel drag. Talk about freaking progressive, leave it to a shoe company to reinvigorate snowboarding, kudos DC.
The DC Boot is a solid stable hard charging snowboard boot with a 4 out of 5 flex on the stiffnes scale, my only wish is that this came in laces. However if you like BOA the Travis Rice boot has double BOA closures.
Other Unique Features of DC Travis Rice
Vents, yeah freaking vents this years 2016 Travis Rice DC Snowboard boot is made with a super breathable fabric that’s uber durable and best of all DC invented the Aerotech Ventilation System. Say goodbye to mold, trench foot and stink.
Clearly Travis spends a ton of time in his boots, guessing this came from his girlfriend. Either way it really works to regulate your foot temps, its the perfect solution, not to warm, not to cold its actually just right!!
Travis Rice is from Jackson Hole, WY which is known for cowboy powder, and you better have a boot that will hold up to shoot Corbett’s Couloir in freezing temps.
Snowboard Magazine routinely gives this boot it’s Platinum Pick Award Travis Rice Pro Boot from DC and we couldn’t agree more.
Warranty: 1 Year
Not only is this one of the sexiest looking snowboard boots on the market its possibly the most high performance snowboard boot ever made. I would definitely recommend this boot for any intermediate to advanced level ride, someone that likes to charge hard and better yet for that guy that is planning on taking some sleds laps and heli trips in the near future.
Were huge supporters of Travis Rice and what him and the crew over at DC are doing as of late. At $399.99 this is the one of the most top of the line snowboard boots ever made.
Be sure to note ~ With boots, we always recommend going to try a pair on before shopping via our retail partners below. Everyone’s feet are different shapes and sizes so with boots you really want to go with what fits you best, not with whats “popular”.
