FLEX RATING: 4
Selecting a boot with the right amount of support is one of the most important decisions a snowboarder can make. The flex rating provides a reference for how boots within the Vans line compare in flexibility. A lower number designates a softer-flexing boot, and a higher number designates a more supportive boot. Boots equipped with the Vans Flex Control System, Reach Around and Vans Hybrid Plus will have multiple numbers showing the range of flex within which the boot can be adjusted.

Maintaining flex not only in your boot but also when your boot is strapped onto a binding describes the main problem that the Instep Flex Zone solves. It’s because functional flex cannot be achieved without the act of riding in mind.
