The Salomon F2.0 is the continuation of the F20. Some companies change the name but not the product but this time there are changes to both. There is a new more cushy shock absorbent foot bed and a new lacing system that really improves the comfort, ease of use and all around ride. This is a nice low profile, reduced footprint mid flexing boot that fit’s a wide variety of riders. The ride and feel is close to the old F20 but there are some noticeable differences. The biggest difference is the bottom of the boot. The sole went from a hard skate like low profile ride to a cushy but still low profile ride. It’s still low profile but it’s just not hard like a skate shoe sole. Most of us like the added shock absorption but some might still prefer the less shock absorbent skate like ride of the old F-20. Almost everyone should like the new easier lacing system that allows the boot to lace more like a Burton speed Lace boot. There are 2 pulls now instead of twist, attach to rungs, pull, repeat 3 times and then attach to harness at top of boot. This is much more intuitive and makes their speed lacing system live up to it’s name. We are big fans of the Salomon F-Series because it’s a good boot but it also offers a reduced footprint so bigger footed riders can fit into smaller width boards.
