The Decade is quickly building a name for itself in the snowboard industry as a reliable, even flexing, super comfortable boot year after year. With a super comfortable combination of memory and thermo-foam in the TF3 liner, first and foremost this boot will keep you comfortable all day long. This comfort is helped by an amazingly secure fit, the SL lacing system is one of the best in the game coupled with the power strap of the TF3 liner and the 540 heel loop this boot will hug your ankles like you wouldn't believe. The unique flex window added to the decade ensures a very even flex with no kinks forming during toe-side turns. The 2017 decade also has an added heel bumper to slightly increase the stiffness of the boot, making this a truly all mountain shredder. The Northwave decade is a must have for someone after superior comfort and a smooth all mountain flex.
