BOA has been around since 2001. It's funny that they are now integrating their systems on hockey gear. They started in the snowboard boot industry as a third party lacing system.(previously stated). Now I see their tech on anything thing from cycling to hunting..etc. I'm honestly baffled that companies haven't used their tech for pads, skates, even helmets.
Kudos to Brians for stepping up with this stuff. Hopefully we see it on more gear soon.
Also to anyone wondering about the durability/ease of fixing. BOA has a lifetime warranty on most products, and they are very easy to fix/replace.
