A truly unique boot in both functionality and styling, the Ride Fuse blends tried and true technology with a bit of modern flair. Featuring an inner liner free of lacing, the Fuse depends on traditional exterior laces and a unique tongue-incorporated Boa system to maintain a snug, solid fit, morning through evening. And even with a thin Michelin-branded sole, these boots still provided ample heel cushioning and full-season durability while keeping the overall weight to a minimum. As an added piece of insurance, Ride even incorporated a waterproof layer beneath the laces of this medium-flexing, all-terrain boot, meaning your toes will remain cozy and dry even when you find yourself riding into the spring and summer months.

Tested + Approved 2019 presented by evo.com

Since its inception four years ago, Tested + Approved has swiftly and proudly established itself as snowboarding's most comprehensive and bullshit-free product test. With an endless sea of gear to choose from—bindings and boots, helmets and goggles, gloves, layers, and everything in between—it's not getting any easier to know where to spend your money when everything seems to be touted as the next great innovation in performance and technology. We set out to navigate this deep sea because, like everyone, we get bummed when something fails on its word.

We start the Tested + Approved process by reaching out to brands with reputable product offerings, asking them to submit qualifying gear across an array of categories. We then distribute this gear to insightful, diehard shredders across the country with distinguished product knowledge and an astute ability to critique it. Committed to eliminating inferior items, blown out soles, busted zippers, fogged up lenses, and gimmicky tech is sifted out. What remains is a collection of the industry’s most proven products; all of it Tested + Approved.
