Innovation.

REDEFINING THE FUTURE OF FIT.

We talk a lot about performance and fit. But what does that really mean? For us, it means more time on the mountain. Longer rides. Extra miles. It means dialing in a customized, precise fit that lets you perform longer, go faster, and feel stronger.

ELEVATING PERFORMANCE.

CONFIGURATIONS

The Boa Fit System gives you the freedom to customize fit with an exactness otherwise unattainable. All of our fit configurations deliver concentrated closure to different zones for customizable control. How this works depends on the configuration — but why it works is because of three integral components.

COMPONENTS

Dial, lace and guide. While the Boa Fit System is custom built for each unique product and use case, they all contain three integral parts: a micro-adjustable dial, super-strong lightweight laces, and low friction lace guides. Each configuration is engineered to optimize fit and provide precision, adaptability, and control.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.

Our fit configurations give all-day performance wherever your path takes you. They offer a solution to every type of activity so no matter how you define comfort, fit, and performance — we’ve got you covered.

TUNED, TESTED, TRUE.

Pounded, frozen, submerged, you name it, we’ve tested it. We have 350 field testers out there right now, letting Boa have it through muddy puddles and waist-deep powder; slamming pavement and crushing climbs. Our in-house lab uses a variety of wear tests that replicate field conditions to ensure that our product will outlast any adventure. It’s how we make strong even stronger.
