The Burton Tyro is Burton’s venture into BOA type boots with a design they call “Speed Dial”. It’s quick and there are some beginner to intermediate riders that just like the easy set up that it offer. The one difference between this BOA and other BOA boots is this BOA doesn’t use a steel cable but instead it’s the same lace in speed lace attached to a BOA like mechanism. It’s also running through the same track that their other speed lace boots use so it’s very comfortable.
The 2014 Burton Tyro is the call over the 2013 because it has a new outer shell with a little articulation in the ankle. There is just a little more tech in the 2014 Tyro over the 2013. It’s a good boot for those that want a little more grip than speed lace around the ankle and are willing to sacrificial upper/lower adjustability to do so.
