Swipe Right: Great boot for reducing heel hold. Light. Seems light but still well built.
Swipe Left: No upper & Lower adjustability
The Ride Lasso Pro lacks in adjustability but excels in locking in your ankle and this medium flexing light boot works with a wide variety of boards.

Size 9 was 2.0lbs. A good bit lighter than most boots.
The Ride Lasso Pro runs almost ½ size large so best to size down ½ size to get a snug/responsive fit. I’m a true size 9 but would buy an 8.5 instead to get it to fit true. As far as width is concerned the Lasso Pro just barely fit my size D width. If you run really wide then they do make a wide which is really cool.
Seems really well built and the Ride Lasso Pro should keep its medium flex for a good amount of time but we can’t say for sure. The boot also feels really light in comparison to many boots we have tried.
There is no Upper/Lower adjustability here. The Ride Lasso Pro has just an outer BOA for the shell and an Inner BOA for the liner. This boot is mainly made for those who like their ankles locked in and have heel lift issues.
The response matches the medium flex and the Ride Lasso Pro matches up with a wide variety of boards.
Shock Absorption/Board Feel
The Ride Lasso Pro has average shock absorption but pretty good board feel.
The sole of the Ride Lasso Pro always gripped well when we needed it to. Great to have rubber throughout the sole.
I would like to compare an 8.5 Ride Lasso Pro to a Burton size 9 and an Adidas 8.5 which all fit a true size 9 really well. It seems like it would be more reduced and close to Burton which is good for fitting into a slightly narrower board or smaller binding.
On & Off Ease
All in all the Ride Lasso Pro is a well built medium flexing boot for those that want to really lock in their ankle. We preferred the Fuse and 92 a little better for what we want in a boot but you could be the opposite.
