The Good

  • All mountain performance
  • Boa enables solid fit
  • Heat moldable liner

The Bad

  • The laces on the liner can snag on the buckle
  • The sole is stiffer than most
THE VERDICT

A confident boot for all mountain riding, the Lasso can do a little bit of everything, but best for powerful riders. The Ride is built for advanced, all-mountain freestyle riders. Lightweight, the Lasso feels good underfoot. And, with three colorways, it’s one of the better looking boots available. We had some hiccups with the heat moldable liner: the cables got crossed in the buckle. Frustrating, since the kink happened first thing in the morning, but it was fixable. 

FULL REVIEW

Fit/Comfort
Out of the box, the fit is comfortable, and like a lot of snowboard boots, you may want to go a full size smaller than your street shoes. The insole is heat moldable, but we didn’t do that. so it took longer than we’d like to break in. 

Weight/Response
Lightweight, the Lasso is a featherweight underfoot, making it one of the most responsive boots in the test. 

Durability
The boot held up okay, but we had a few hiccups with the liner early on. 

Versatility
Comfortable and softer than a bunch of boots in the test, it was one of the most comfortable boots we tested.

Traction
The Lasso was predictable on and off snow.
