ROLLBAR Technology - This technology features a lightweight graphite stability posting system that provides optimal lateral forefoot, midfoot and medial heel support. It also transfers riding motions directly to the board and binding without reducing or interfering with comfort or dampening.
686 Times NB Boot Liner - A dual density EVA liner for superior lightness, flex and fit that maintains its shape. The liner features a new open cell PE foam lining at the top cuff to reduce pressure on the calf, an anatomically fitted last for improved comfort, anti-microbial coating to minimize odor, and a Velcro tongue lock to keep the tongue in position while riding.
