2014 Ride Spark Kids Boot Overview
Hey there. Welcome to the Morning Shred brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna. I've got Ryan from Ride here and we're going to talk about the Ride Spark Boot. Cool little boot for kids, right? Yep. Very cool boot. Children's boot. The flex rating on it, I would say, probably a 2. Great boot for that family that's going out wanting to get their kid into snowboarding. It's got great support but it also is very flexible and very easy to walk in. Lacing system on it is pretty simple - not too much to write home to mom and dad about but we've go the Boa system on it which tightens up in a cinch. You don't have to stop on the chair or stop on the run to tie the kid's boots which makes getting more downhill for your dollar time, if you will. And they can do it themselves, right? That being the big... Right and that is the key selling feature on it is, you know, you're not going to hear "Mom, dad, tie my boot". Sure. The kid will have this boot on, ready to go before you're even, you know, have your boots on probably.
That's how easy it is. It is a liner-less boot which allows a little bit more support and also allows the shim system inside so you can actually grow. Oh okay. And grab a half size out of the boot. And that's kinda nice for the kid who gets a little bit longer out of it but then maybe passes it down to little brother, it's still a good quality boot. You've still got a couple size options in there. Exactly. It's a hand-me-down. Nice and it's going to hold up for that kid too. And you can have this boot to hand down for at least 4-5 years through the family. Great. If not longer. Well, there you go.
