Boots: A Real Kick In The Ass

 

The DC Phantom 3s derive their uniqueness from the air bladder on the liner. Just pump it up to inflate them around your ankle for a snug custom fit–and then press the release to get unsnug.

In addition, the liner has a gel pad in the toe to soften the impact of harsh landings. These innovations are just a couple of the results from DC riders like Travis Rice and Josh Dirksen tinkering at the DC Mountain Lab last winter.

The ThirtyTwo TM-Twos were one of the most popular boots with riders in the TWS Buyer’s Guide Setups. ThirtyTwos accounted for eighteen of the 79 setups, and seven of those riders were in the TM-Two.

Just heat-mold the liners and crank on the ankle harness– these lightweight boots will go straight from the box to the slopes without the pain.

Shaun says, “I’m really stoked about my boots. I had a lot of creative control and it turned out to be something that I’m really proud of.”
