The Burton SLX belongs to the cream of the crop and is build to take on the entire mountain. Although the ride is still similar, Burton has made some chances to the boot’s character and materials. For instance, it now features Burton’s all new Dragon Skin shell material which gives the boot extra durability and style. However during testing we noticed it’s not as scratch resistant as before. The overall shock absorption is good and it has definitely improved compared with the Burton ION. Although due to the thickness of the rubber you hardly feel anything of the shocks being absorbed. However this new setup does provide more response. The Burton SLX now also better wraps around your feet, giving you a more comfortable fit.
