Yes and no.
The Boa Closure System consists of aircraft-grade stainless steel laces and a low-profile, powerful dial that work together to provide a premium alternative to traditional laces.
The Boa Closure Systems fall into three main categories, called “power levels”:
1. Boa High-Power Closure System is found on snowboard boots and other large, high-cut footwear that requires the unequaled strength and gear ratio advantage Boa delivers. See How It Works
2. Boa Mid-Power Closure System is ideal for mid-cut footwear such as utility boots, hiking boots, safety shoes, inline skates and ski boot liners. See How It Works
3. Boa Low-Power Closure System was specifically designed for low-cut footwear. This is where Boa brings superior performance, convenience and comfort to cycling shoes, golf shoes, running shoes and casual footwear. See How It Works
How Strong is the Boa dial?
From the beginning, our design goal has been that the dial should outlast the boots in any conditions, a promise backed by Boa’s “Dialed In for Life” Guarantee. The Boa Closure System has tens of thousands of hours of testing on it in all types of terrain and environments, from mountain trails to terrain parks to construction sites.
Is any lubrication necessary to keep my Boa’s running smoothly?
No, our extensive product testing has determined that a simple rinse with fresh water is sufficient to clean debris out of the dial. Never put an oil based lubricant (such as WD-40) in your Boa as it will degrade the integrity of the components.
My footwear collects a lot of grit and grime. Will Boa stand up to abrasive debris? How durable is it?
Don’t let the size of the Boa lace fool you. That relatively thin lace is gram-for-gram stronger than tank armor. It is constructed of aircraft-grade stainless steel. For demanding environments, it may be jacketed in nylon. As a bonus, athletes (and other Boa fans) appreciate that they can simply hose off all the mud and grime after their endeavor.
