The Deeluxe Deemon is German ripper Elias Elhardt’s boot of choice. Equally at home in the backcountry as it is throwing down on huge park features. This is your all-terrain boot, your one stop shop for all things shred. Coming in two colourways, the murdered out black option is Elias’ own, and comes with a special removable pad bwteeen the liner and tongue to boost performance.
With a flex rating of 7, this isn’t even nearly the stiffest boot in Deeluxe’s line, but that’s not to say it lacks responsiveness. What it lacks in overall flex, it more than makes up for with its finely tuned precision. A snowboard boot that fits you properly will always perform better than one that doesn’t regardless of how stiff it is. Your boot can be 10/10 on the scale but if you can’t put in a proper toeside turn then it’s pointless.
“The whole boot moves as one, transferring all your energy directly, rather than it being lost in translation”
To ensure a snug fit, Deeluxe have used their Thermo Flex Premium Liner, which moulds to your foot to eliminate any dead spaces. They’ve also used an internal power strap and heel harness to fine tune, and hold, the fit.
Externally they use their L3 Lacing System for a dual zone finish. One lace specifically targets the heel and ankle, locking them into place to put paid to heel lift, and boosting response. A second power strap locks the tongue of the boot against the liner, limiting the movement between the two. The whole boot moves as one, transferring all your energy directly rather than being lost in translation.
The DTEX Membrane and tough backstay ensure that daily wear and tear is minimal, so you can ride these boots harder, for longer. Underfoot you’ve got a cushioned sole, and a grippy exterior so whether you’re hiking lines or dropping spines you’ll get maximum stability.
