What is Boa?
With over 25 million Boa-powered products worldwide, the award-winning, patented Boa Closure System is reinventing how shoes, medical braces, equipment, and nearly everything else performs.
Our proprietary closure system of steel Lace, nylon guides and a mechanical reel was designed to address the long list of deficiencies found in traditional closures. In the process, we improved upon the performance of every other closure system on the market—from laces to buckles, and ratchets to hook and loop systems.
The result? Get a perfect fit with the simple turn of a knob, free of the stretch, weight, and hassles of old-fashioned closures. Enjoy a significantly improved level of comfort along with durability, light weight, fast and convenient operation, and on-the-fly adjustment. The list of advantages goes on.
The system is available in three different power configurations to integrate into a wide variety of products—all designed to provide a truly “Dialed In” fit never before experienced.
How it Works
Turn to Tighten + Quick Release
Boa offers different user interfaces to suit the construction and performance demands of every product we are on. These interfaces are intuitive and deliver clear performance advantages over traditional shoelaces and other speed lacing systems. Our Turn to Tighten + Quick Release interface is our tried and true interface that is found on most snowboard boots, utility boots, and outdoor shoes.
Turn to Adjust + Quick Release
Boa offers different user interfaces to suit the construction and performance demands of every product we are on. These interfaces are intuitive, and deliver clear performance advantages over traditional shoelaces and other speed lacing systems. Our Turn to Adjust + Quick Release interface is our premium solution that offers incremental tightening and loosening, with the convenience of a quick release to easily get in and out of the product. This system is commonly found on cycling and golf shoes.

Love your product on my Korkers wading boots with Boa closure... thanks Boa for not having to deal with wet soggy laces"

Over the past two seasons of riding, I've been incredibly impressed with the Boa Closure System. Ease of use and ability to quickly create a snug fit are second to none. People ask me about my shoes all the time, and I unfailingly sing your product's praises."

The spare parts for my North Face boots arrived a little over a week after I placed the order with you. Not only does Boa manufacture a beautifully designed and functional product, but your service and after-sales support is nothing less than awesome."
– Ross/ Australia
I am the proud owner of a pair of Viking Gtx hiking shoes with Boa Closure and they have literally changed my life. 8 years ago, I was in a motocross accident which left my left arm paralyzed and I had not been able to tie my shoes until I got my Boa shoes. Thank you!
– Pål/ Norway
After years of abuse, snapped a cable on my K2 DBs. A free cable and 10 min later, my favorite boots are good as new. Will never own a snowboard boot without Boa Closure again."
– Mike/ Denver, CO
I just wanted to take a second and say that I absolutely LOVE my Boa boots. I bought them in 2006 and never once have I had a problem with them. I work on the mountain and constantly tell people that they need to get them!"
– Katie/ Beaver Creek, CO

I wear a Boa-powered ankle brace for basketball and volleyball. Not only does in protect my ankles but it is very comfortable and supportive. I made that ankle brace part of my life and now it has made my life so much better."
