2016 Flow HyLite Focus Boot Overview
Welcome to the Morning Shred, brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna, this is Tim from Flow and this here is the Flow Hylite boot. Tim, this is your boot, personally, right? It is. I've been using it now since we came out with it, I absolutely love it. It just keeps getting better as the years go on, we just keep dialing it in and dialing it in. This is for the guy who's on the hill quite a bit, you know. You can easily get 100+ days out of this boot and new for this year, the Dual Zone Boa. We went to ceramic cables, they're stronger than steel was but more importantly, they allowed us to get rid of the little plastic stays that were across the top of the tongue, making it even more comfortable as it interfaces with your binding. One piece toe design on here, nice and clean, no stiching across there, makes it super durable. Reinforced in the back as you can see coming up where it interfaces with the highback, a Vibram sole that we worked very closely with Vibram to design using our Bare Foot technology, gives you more feel under your foot.
And suspension, something we call OC Kush, going all the way into the heel box pocket as well as under the ball of the foot. Nice and grippy so that you're not sliding around. On the inside of this boot you have just a ton of features. First off - it's a heat moldable liner but it's pre-lasted, you don't have to heat it up, it will mold to your foot the more you wear it - same goes for the footbed. The footbed takes on the shape of your foot the more you wear it so this boot just gets more and more comfortable as you wear it. Velcro holding the tongue in place so you don't have to worry about it twisting around, which is kind of cool, and then the internal harness. The internal harness is insane. You have kind of a draw cord on here that you pull and, as you can see, it just wraps around the foot. It stays in place because it has more OC Kush in here and as you can see two L pads on either side kind of locking the ankle into place. Just making for a super comfortable boot, very, very light weight and very durable, like I said no lieing, you can get 100+ days out of this boot.
So just an awesome, top of the line boot with tons of features. Yeah, I mean, it does it all. Well if that sounds like something you're interested in, make sure to check out the Hylite on snowboards.com and thanks for watching the Morning Shred.
