Default Hmk and fxr top line boa boots

Holy $hit these things are expensive. I thought klim was proud of their stuff. I have klim radium gtx's now and like the stiffness and the dry feet every ride but hate lacing them up and they do loosen up during the day sometimes.

Anyone have any real world experience with them. I am talking about the hmk pro focus boa and the fxr mountain light focus boa. Both with around $380 list prices. That's a lot of $$. They better be dam good. Leaning towards the hmk because of the waterproof AND breathable but open to others experiences.

Might not do anything in the end for that much lol.

I don't have either of those boots but I wear Vans Cirro Boots with an Upper and Lower BOA and I can attest to the BOA system.

1. It stays where you set it and can easily tighten and release

2. I busted a knob on one of the boots and with an email to BOA it was no questions asked quick replacement (they were 3-4 years old)

Definitely my next pair of boots WILL have a BOA system

I went with the HMK boa focus last year. I liked the fit, support and boa system but the boot was way to warm for my feet and everyday would be soaked with sweat, also developed a horrible funk. I also had holes in both soles in less than 25 rides.

We have used both pairs last year for around 5-7 days each. Both are near identical boots. The both work super well and you can really crank these things down to get the most ankle support in the industry. For some people they have too much support though, and some people are scared of fastening systems like BOA or Buckles etc, as any sort of fastener can break at any one moment and then you are SOL in the back country. If laces wear out, you have seen them wearing generally and just chose not to replace them in time, and lace up boots generally can be make shifted to work for the day. But to answer the original question both work awesome, our thumbs up goes to the FXR on this particular boot as it is a bit lighter.

I rocked my HMK voyagers with the BOA for 50 days last year...no issues.

Its less expansive then the HMK Team BOA boot and has less insulation. I found it the perfect riding boot.

Once you go BOA you will never go back!

I bet www.blownmotor.com even has them in stock!

I like the motorfist stompers, but a boa set up would be sweet on them.

FXR Tactic with Boa......love 'em. Never really thought I would look at the Boa system. But once I cranked them up I was sold. Sure is nice at the end of the day as well when you just want to get out of your gear and kick back.
Cheers

This will be my 3rd season with my pair of HMK pro boa focus boots, and they have been fantastic. They still look new, except the soles (my airframes took care or those), are very warm and stay tight. I will never go without a boa system in any future boot I may buy
