    No - i like speedzone, but the Salomon system is way better IMO - Plus Salomon were the first company to introduce a zonal lacing system. Its not quite as quick, but has the best adjustability of any system i have used

    Anyone actually seen/used the Rome Pureflex lacing system? It looks pretty similar to the Salomon system but that's only based on internet videos so who knows

    got my salomons half way through last season and im loving the lacing system. first time using anything other than traditional and it doesnt seem to come lose as easily. with my old 32's they always would seem to slowly loosen through out the day. plus i get in and out way quicker.

    I'm the opposite. My experience with the Salomon lacing system is that it's the most pathetic piece of shit I've ever encountered. I absolutely hated it.

    SpeedZone all the way for me.

    Although I've never broken a SpeedZone lace, I recently bought a spare "pair" online just in case - and WHAT THE FUCK??? When Burton sells you a "pair" of boots, you get one for each foot - but nooooooooooooo, when Burton sells you a "pair" of SpeedZone laces, it's for only ONE BOOT!!! Yeah yeah, I get it - there's two "laces" in every boot. So what?! If it's a footwear product, then a "pair" is for BOTH feet!

    Just another Burton ripoff.

     The packages have always had one lace in them because they are usually to replace A broken lace. If you wanted a "pair" they should have sent you two packages. Sounds like a miscommunication to me or the monkey you were talking too thought a package had two. Also the upper and lower zones are a different length so that has to be hashed out too

     Yeah. I don't blame the store, I blame Burton 100%. Pretty much every store runs the same text, so it must have been supplied by Burton's marketing department. It's just very poorly worded - because for every other footwear product on the market, a "pair" is for both feet.

    All Burton needs to do is insist that anyone who sells these online promote them as a "kit" or "pack" instead of a "pair".

    Then again, considering the hefty RRP on these things (for what they are), they should just include a full set of replacements for both boots (especially considering they're only sold to replace broken Burton product).

    No big deal, it's more the principal of the thing than anything else.

    Rider's services will send you them for free. They've become more of a pain about it recently thought, and ask you if you can go to a shop. Any time I've called them I've specifically asked for a set of four new laces. I just tell them if one just broke, then the others aren't too far off and I don't want to have to ruin another day of riding because of the laces breaking, plus any additional days it takes for the laces to get to me. They groan but end up sending them to me every time I have asked. Last time they sent me the tool, too!

     Only in North America. Many purchasers of Burton products live elsewhere.

    Did you read my username? Never had a problem in NZ either, and I'm not one of the shop-bro hookups kind of people either

    Actually, do you still need one? If I have one or two spares I can send ya one.

    .... and this is why I don't really bother with lacing systems other than probably boa (if I ever get boa boots.)

    I just go traditional.
