New for 2012 the Flight is Rides new Speed Lace boot. This is the first speed lace boot they have made but in 2013 many more boots joined the speed lace design team. It’s pretty well made and has excellent adjustability. The 2013 is a little more supportive. This has upper and lower zones and almost all of Ride’s boots are well made. That being said its usually good to wait a season or 2 before buying someones new tech until they work out the kinks. Still this might be a good choice if you like a really soft boot and like the extra comfort of lace over BOA.
