The Ride Sash is not a bad boot for the price. The Sash does a good job for those who are ok without lower and upper adjustability. It’s the kind of boot that makes for an easy all mountain to freestyle kind of ride. The Sash has had some upgrades for 2012 that make it a little better than 2011. The BOA system has less pressure points than last year and the liner is a bit more comfortable. Still the boots perform about the same but the comfort factor is a little better. The Sash hasn’t changed much over the years.
