Swipe Right: Great adjustability for a Double BOA boot. Well built. Rare high end medium flex boot.

Swipe Left: Expensive.

Summary: The Ride The 92 is one of the only mid flexing high end boots out there. It has excellent adjustability and a great feel on foot.

Weight

Size 9 was 2.0lbs. Pretty light.

Sizing/Fit

I would size down 1/2 size if you want a true fit. I am a true size 9 and would go down to 8.5 to get a good fit with the Ride 92 all season. Peter didn’t feel it as much as I did but he rode it first. I think over time he would much rather prefer a size 8 instead of a size 8.5 like he would normally ride.

Construction/Flex/Flex Retention

We really liked the overall construction. The stiff spine on the back combined with the ankle articulation seems like it will keep its medium flex a while. You can also dial out the flex to be a little softer or stiffer if you want.

Adjustability/Heel Hold

The Ride 92 isn’t like a lot of double BOA boots that overlap around the ankle but the heel hold was pretty solid. We love the completely separate Double Boa system that also has a strap for added adjustability. It is almost there with traditional lace boots.

Response/Turn Initiation

We love a medium response boot and the Ride 92 had all the response we needed for more demanding boards to turn like the Hovercraft. At the same time, it didn’t overpower quicker/easier turning boards like the Wild Life and make it twitchy.

Shock Absorption/Board Feel

The shock absorption is pretty good but they are going more for board feel than a cushy ride like the Adidas we were riding at the time. If you want more of a skate feel that integrates better with your bindings then the Ride 92 is a great call.

Traction

The Ride 92 has great traction. Gripped really well in all conditions we rode in.

Footprint vs. Warmth

If I went down to a size 8.5 which would much better fit my true size 9,  the footprint would be pretty reduced with the Ride 92. This is great for fitting into a slightly narrower boot to reduce toe/heel drag. It didn’t feel like a super cold boot either which can often happen when you reduce the footprint.

On & Off Ease

The Ride 92 is much easier on and off than

Overall we were both really impressed with the Ride 92. It is so great to see a mid flexing high end boot with a lot of really cool tech. Most boots in this price point are ultra stiff.

 
Ride 92 Past Reviews

The Ride The 92 snowboard boot combines easy on and off with a good bit of adjustability.  The strap combined with the BOA also makes it a pretty unique boot.
