With a legacy of pushing personal skills to the pro level, the Ruler is the snowboard boot for stepping to larger drops and burlier features.
For riders seeking Ion-level performance but lack the loot, its proven formula includes top tech like the reduced weight and footprint of Shrinkage™ and oversized 270º Airbags. Plus Burton’s exclusive Total Comfort for a perfectly broken-in feel right from the start. Advanced features include the Lock-Up Cuff/Imprint™ 2 Liner combo for locked-in heel hold and response with no loss of comfort or convenience.

Speed Zone™ Lacing System for True Zonal Lacing Control
Lightning fast lacing control. Customize the fit of the upper or lower zone in seconds, and because the system is so powerful, you get more rebound, more wrap, and better response—with less effort.
Flex / Response
Shrinkage™ Footprint Reduction Technology
Reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, meaning a men’s size 10 fits like a size 10, but has the footprint of a typical size 9. Shorter, lighter, sleeker—never suffer from toe drag again.
Power Spine Backstay
Allow for fine-tuned medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and durability.
These strategically placed flex notches allow for smoother, more fluid lateral and medial flex, perfect for pressing and tweaking.
NEW Power Up Medium Flex Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongue
For greater rebound and durability, we have upgraded the majority of our 2014 boots to this new dual density tongue construction. Like all our Thin Profile 3D® Molded Tongues, it’s available in one of three flex options based on the boot. For even greater response, check the thermoplastic-reinforced Power Up Plus Tongue on the Driver X.
Cushioning / Traction
Lightweight Outsole with 270º Airbag Cushioning
A larger airbag covers approximately 75% of the midsole for unstoppable impact protection and reduced weight.
Total Comfort Construction
Get an instantly broken-in feel right out of the box. Total Comfort’s industry-exclusive construction eliminates the break-in period for a fit that feels just as good from day 1 to 100.
Snow-Proof Internal Gusset
All Burton boot tongues feature an internal gusset construction to completely seal the lower zone of the boot, keeping feet warm and dry.
Level 1 Molded EVA Footbed
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.
