  • Answer Snowboard Boot Flex|Aside from Boot Fit and Heel Holding Power, checking the Flex is important when Buying your Snowboarding Boots. The degree of Boot Flex varies depending on the Type of Riding Styles in Snowboarding. So consider both your riding style and preference when deciding on how much flex you will need.||Freestyle Boots are usually lower cut, with loose, molded inner liners for more flexibility. Freeride Boots tend to have a stiffer upper boot for added support, and a lace-up inner that allows you to adjust the amount of flexibility. On the other hand, Snowboard Boots for Alpine Riding are usually Hard Boots. This is because Hard Boots support your foot, ankle, and lower leg firmly, making them best for racing and high-speed carving on hard snow surface.|This is a link to a chart we have in our Snowboard Buying Guide. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/snowboard-guide/
