I've got some mixed feelings about these. At first, everything seemed great, but as I started using 'em more, some problems came up. My Photon Step On boots got soft too fast, like they wore out in just seven days. That made it tough to handle steep slopes and trees 'cause they didn't give enough support. Another problem was the... Read more

Sarah Caldwell tested this product
I demoed the Mens Step On Photon boots and they exceeded my expectations. I’m a womens size 9.5, so I tried these in size 8. Right off the bat, I wasn’t sure I’d get my foot in the boots because of how snug they were but once I got them in, it held my foot in all the... Read more
Ideal for
  • Heel hold in this boot was next level: responsive, supportive and locked in.
  • These felt comfortable right out of the box.
  • Riders looking for a premium set of BOA boots with the ease of Step On quick entry.
Not ideal for

Same size much smaller

I was replacing a previous Mission XL that fit perfectly. I ordered this new Mission XL and it is smaller and fits very snug. I cannot wear it.

This helmet is so comfortable it feels like an extension of my body. The fit is customizable to your preferences, it has the prefect amount of ventilation when you need to cool down but also keeps your head warm and snuggled. I have worn it with a balaclava and had no issues with the fit. It's like a dream! Perfectly integrates with the aleck speakers and smith 4d mag goggles which are a must have as well!

Ryan is the man!!
5 /5
Ryan had great recommendations, was friendly, and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to find the right board and bindings for me! He finds you the best deal and charges you nothing in return. But of course I gave him a tip for his hard work! Curated is an awesome sight and I’m so glad I found it!

Spencer went above and beyond to help make me comfortable with my first snowboard purchase. I worried about getting something wide enough for my big feet and versatile enough to help me progress as a newer rider. He curated the perfect list for me and even made a 17 minute video addressing me personally and answering all my questions. He is personable, knowledgeable and quick to respond. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I appreciate you Spencer.

Jared helped me get insight on my first snowboard purchase
5 /5
Started snowboarding this year and am determined to get real better at it. I've rented multiple times at big bear and have gone to whistler, but I've always wanted to get my own gear. When looking online and looking at various brands and sizes, it can be overwhelming for someone newer like me. It was great to speak with a specialist and get real time feedback, including video and audio. Jared was super approachable and helped me pick my first snowboard/bindings. Thanks Jared brotha, keep up the great work!

I started exploring Curated with Andrew well before I was ready to buy. I let Andrew know I wasn’t in a position to buy right out of the gate, but that didn’t deter him from being as helpful as possible. I even had a few rounds of re-doing my selections, and I never felt like I was being a bother. Question after question, he had answers for me and follow up questions to ensure he was giving me the best information possible. I can’t review the board itself yet, but I have COMPLETE faith in my selection based on all the conversation between Andrew and I. It sounds like we frequent the same resort, so I hope I get the opportunity to meet him and thank him in person!

Taylor gave me options that were reasonable and exactly what I was asking for, he didn't to force more expensive boards on me or boards that are outside of my comfort zone. I am pleased with my purchase, and I can't wait to try it out on this winter!!
