New Boot Time
I am coming off of a pair of 05 maybe 06 CWB Zeus boots. People told me these were considered stiff boots, but it was my first pair, so I have nothing to compare it to.

Looking for feedback on the CWB AA. Looks like an easy on boot, but have not seen in person. Open to other ideas and suggestions. I did break my ankle a few years ago playing hockey, so that is my thinking for a stiff boot, but it could just be a mind game. Also looking at the Ronix Cell.

If you want really good ankle support D2/D3 from slingshot.... they have a ankle specific inner harness that keeps you from rolling it at all

My buddy Jeff (BBSxkills) just got his AAs from Zane a week or two ago.... he's ridden them a few times I'll see if I can get him to chime in on how they ride.

They look sharp IMO but I never put them on.

I'd be interested to hear about the AA boots as well. I'm in the market for new bindings, and love the idea of velcro, but the vantages are too soft for my liking.

The AA boots are super comfy and easy to get into. I really liked them but if your looking for a really stiff boot I would take a look at the new Marius boot. It is the stiffest boot in the line and very easy to get into as well. They have a dual lace system that opens the boot up nicely.

bbsxkills 03-03-2010 12:17 PM

^^^ i couldn't agree more with that. they are super easy to get in and out of but with the velcro, it's kind of hard to get a whole lot of ankle support. if you're considered with that then i'd say try the marius boots too but if you can sacrifice a little bit of ankle support then i'd say go for the AA. i've been riding them for about 2 weeks now and love them :D

Alright check this out, A freind of mine has been rocking these Murrays for a wahile now and as you can imaging they were FUBAR, Laces knotted more than you can imagine load points pulling out (which is a big problem with most bindings, I Felt really bad for him cuz he couldnt lace his boots up tight and it was holding him WAY back. I run a Gearbag manuf. Business so i stole his boots one night and did a Moding myself to help him out.I call it the "moose Mod."(this guy is 7'2" and we call him moose.

I can almost garruntee this mod will outlast the moose, reinforced webbing sewn in at the load points and stainless steel #2 Grommets for pulling the laces, Check It out. I would charge 50$ pair to do this, Beats 400$ new ones anyday.

Ronix one all the way. I had the ones then bought slingshot last year and i just ordered a new pair of ones

dhv142 03-05-2010 1:13 PM

you can definitely not go wrong with ronix bindings, theyre super comfy and provide tons of support, i love the ones, if you get a chance, go try a pair on!

AA's are really cool boots. I wanted something that wasn't quite as stiff, so I went for a the Factions. The new CWB boots are light..... really light.

Sean Charmichael...I would be really interested in seeing if you have a few parts for an old pair of CD bindings. Specifically I am looking for roller type lace grommets so I can lace and unlace my boots a bit easier. It would also be rad if you had access to the lace locks (similar to whats on the RBK 9k ice hockey skate) so I could lock different portions of the boot for tighter/looser fits. I could mail you the overlays to have you stitch them in if possible?

The Marius and the AA's are both pretty stiff, but the Marius is a little stiffer.

The AA's are money!!

Sean 03-05-2010 2:39 PM

Yo Dizzle. ha. Send me some pics Sean@armorbags.com Ill see what I can do.

wake_upppp 03-05-2010 9:50 PM

Another vote for Ronix Ones. Or Cells if you want a little more support. LF Watsons would be my other choice for great ankle support.

ryanw209 03-07-2010 5:02 PM

+1 for Ronix Ones for me too!
