The 2011 Burton Men's Grail Snowboard Boots are a premium all-mountain lace up boot for performance and comfort for those who ride faster and fly further.
This years Grail is lighter weight and more supportive with a feel (flex) of 6 and packed with features inside and out. One primo feature is Burton's Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology that reduces the boot's overall footprint one full size, meaning a men's size 10 fits like a 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9, so shorter, lighter, and sleeker to avoid suffering from toe drag or maybe getting the size 11 booted riders into a narrower waist board.
But that's not it the Imprint™ 4 Liner incorporates everything you may need and then some from Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating to inhibit the grow of odor causing bacteria and an industry first InfiniFIT™ Liner Sole that provides a consistent out-of-box fit meaning this cush boot stays true-to-size by preventing pack-out to keep you comfortable, supported, stinkfree'ish and ready to ride from day one until you simply decide to buy new boots. With New Dryride moisture wicking Hyperwick™ tech mesh in the toe box both insulating and regulating warmth by pulling moisture away from your ski then acting like a one-way door, the microscopic pores in the membrane allow moisture vapors to escape, while water droplets from the outside can't enter.
