The DC Scout has a pretty soft forward flex that makes it really fun in the park. Most DC BOA boots are very good at keeping the cables inside from causing pressure points. DC has a very soft forward flex that compared to boots of similar stiffness. There is no separate upper/lower adjustability but the BOA does lock in the heel. Also the ride is pretty mellow and forgiving while still having enough flex to lean into a semi-hard turn. Not much has changed from over the years and this isn’t a bad choice for those who like a low priced ultra soft easy to adjust park boot.
