2016 Ride Hera Boa Coiler Womens Boot Overview
Welcome to the Morning Shred, brought to you by snowboards.com. I'm Jenna, this is Ryan from Ride and we're going to talk about the Ride Hera boot. Ryan, tell us a little bit about who this boot is designed for and what makes it unique. The Hera is going to be a step up from the Ride Sage boot in our line. It's kind of designed for that intermediate to advanced woman rider. It's got the Coiler Boa system on it, the Ride Closer system which those two components really compliment eachother. It's got Intuition liner so it's heat moldable, the Plush liner to be exact so you're getting a little bit more support than say our lower end boots. So you've got the Plush liner, internal J-bars, external J-bars Ride lockdown system, again, a little bit more support. It's got the grip sole so you're going to get good traction when you're walking.
A couple key things on this is going to be the LSD CAT: so that's Calf Adjusting Technology so the top of the liner will actually open up and allow for a girl that has an athletic calf to open up that and give it a little bit more room or you can close it and cinch it down if you have skinnier calf, which is pretty cool. Another key feature on this that's going to separate it from our other womens boots is it has Tongue Tied. So it's going to have a side Boa so what you do is when you turn that it kind of sucks the tongue in and centers itself for you but it also drives that heel back into the heel cup, giving you more support and more response toe to heel. So you said kind of that boot for that intermediate to advanced level girl, it's not super stiff and aggressive but it also has more response than say the Sage or another boot - more bells and whistles, more customization. Yep, but again you can't really strong-hold, I mean that intermediate to advanced girl can definitely get into it.
