When it comes to hardgoods, Terje Haakonsen is possibly the pickiest rider on the planet.
The fact that he rides the SLX snowboard boot right out of the box speaks volumes. Burton’s highest performance snowboard boot, it includes the latest breakthroughs like the NEW Infinite Ride™ liner, an industry-first seamless liner for flex and fit that won’t break down or pack out. Underfoot it’s all-new, too, with ReBounce, another industry-first that brings cushioning closer to your foot than ever before while simultaneously reflecting body heat to keep your feet warm and the cushioning consistent.

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.
NEW S4 Hybrid Construction
Start strong, stay strong. That’s S4. Superlight and resilient, these shell panels on the SLX and Imperial evenly distribute strap pressure to maximize rebound and resist breakdown for consistent flex, season after season.
Easy Slide Articulating Cuff
Allowing the upper and lower zones of the boot to flex independently creates fluid forward motion, minimizes shell distortion, and maximizes heel hold and response.
NEW Power Up Firm 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.
Seamless Power Spine Backstay
Allow for fine-tuned medial/lateral support, edge-to-edge response, and durability.
Cushioning / Traction
Vibram® EcoStep™ Plus Outsole [50% Recycled]
Get the legendary grip and feel Vibram® is famous for in a lighter weight and 50% recycled construction. Includes the added rebound and cushioning of dual zone EVA and B3 Gel in the heel and toe.
Featuring Dual Zone B3 Gel in the Heel and Toe
The same cushioning found in our high-end boots for unstoppable impact protection.
NEW ReBounce Cushioning
More comfort and more warmth is the Burton-exclusive upgrade of NEW Rebounce Cushioning. The extra hops are accomplished by surrounding the foot with a two-layer 3D laminate of cushy PU plus reflective material, which not only reduces impact and absorbs chatter but also turns heat inward. Featured on the SLX, Ion, NEW Ion Leather, Hail Restricted, and Supreme.
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 3 Molded EVA Footbed
Lightweight and long-lasting shock absorption.
ESS Support Shank
The added support reduces fatigue while preventing your arch from collapsing on itself when you bomb drop a 40-footer.
Dual-density cushioning uses denser EVA laterally for support, and a softer, more cushioned EVA medially to allow your foot to roll naturally, reducing stress on your joints and ligaments.
NEW Infinite Ride™ 5 Liner
1. DRYRIDE Moisture Wicking Tech 2. Tuff Cuff with Velcro® J-Bar Interface and Inner Lace Lock 3. Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating 4. Sock Lock 5. Rad Pad for Lace Comfort 6. Velcro® Liner Closure 7. Level 3 Molded EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank, Dual-Density Cushioning, and Aegis™ 8. Heat-Moldable
Ankle support and inner cuff stability is mandatory in a pro-level boot. Our solution is the Tuff Cuff, which increases heel hold and wraps the ankle with medial and lateral support while still flexing freely from toe to heel. Featured on the SLX, Ion, NEW Ion Leather, Rover, Driver X™, Supreme, and Felix™.
DRYRIDE Moisture Wicking Tech
DRYRIDE Hyperwick™ mesh in the toe box both insulates and regulates warmth by pulling moisture away from your skin, then evaporating it through a waterproof/breathable shell membrane. Like a one-way door, the microscopic pores in this membrane allow moisture vapors to escape, while water droplets from the outside can’t enter.
Located on the top of your instep, right where the liner laces exert the most pressure, these pre-curved panels keep your feet stoked and secure.
Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating
Inhibits foul odors. Your feet [and your friends] will thank us. Look for Aegis™ on select liners and footbeds.
