Hey Matt, I also ride AT boots while snowboarding. I currently use the Dynafit Neo and after a fair bit of modification they are actually more playful than my soft boots (Deeluxe Sparks). Your hardboots can be very restrictive or very loose and playful depending on what you do to them. I love throwing methods and chucking 3’s off of cliffs and fun playful riding in general, I was worried I’d lose that with my switch to AT boots.

Hey Mike great review! Thanks for all the info on your site, its my go to for gear reviews. This will be my 29th season of snowboarding.

Thanks for the reply. I think it will be an adjustment for sure. I go for my first tour in revelstoke here on wednesday nov 14 for a week long mission. I’ll report back to you after and let you know what I thought. Im currently trying to become a ACMG splitboard guide and wanted the hard boot set up to make back country travel easier and safer. I too come from a ski background as I ski raced before becoming a full time snowboarder. I haven’t really done any mods to my boots yet as they fit really well.… Read more »
