Thirty Two Prion 2014 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

Another Beginner to Intermediate boot by 32.  This comes in traditional lace and speed lace. 32’s Speed lacing system is slightly different than others.  It has this latch on the top that holds the laces in place but when it’s open could catch on something if you are walking and break.  So if you get these you need to always keep them in the locked position or you might break em.  Still this probably isn’t a reason to not buy the speed lace.  Also some have complained that the Speed Lace comes loose during the corse of a day’s ride.  The Lace is predictable and reliable but slow. You can get the same adjustability as the speed lace but it takes a little more work. As always in this price range there isn’t anything exciting to really get crazy about but these boots will do a pretty good job for a beginner or intermediate rider.  32 also makes wider snowboard boots so if you have wide feet they are worth considering.  The Prion is a pretty light and a good choice for the price.

Decent boots, and you can get them for under $100 on end of year sales. The heel hold is a little iffy (I can get lift if I'm pulling up very fast with sloppy lacing), and they're a little on the soft side for icy conditions or nonstop carving, but they're a big upgrade from rental boots. Very very comfortable. May run small - I only wear one size down from street shoes.
