    Posted: Mar/25/2011 at 12:17pm
Looked at some Salomon boots with the quick lace system that locks into the plastic thing at the top of the tongue. The guy at R.E.I. said he had tried them and they didn't stay tight. (No, he wasn't trying to sell me a higher priced boot because they didn't have much at end of season). Anybody tried this system and how did it work for you?

I think it is average at best, my back foot comes loose quite often (they were good up until the 40-50 day mark)..... My problem is they just fit my foot so dam good, I don't really want to wear any other brand.

Yeah I have a pair as well they usually loosen up a little bit but nothing too drastic, just make sure to wrap the drawstring around your leg and clip it on the other side so it won't come loose. I usually find myself tightening them 2-4 times during a full day of riding; usually once after the first few runs after your foot really compacts in.
I'm switching back to regular lace boots next year if that means anything to you. Unless they are really cheap I would go with another choice (if you have any).

i havent personally worn these boots but salomon makes deacent boots not incredible but deacent quality boots. with my expirance with the quick lace boots from burton and what others have said about the quick lace systems is that yes they do come loose after some riding. i can get mine really thight tho and once they start comming loose it takes literally five seconds to tighten them back up. i would say if you like these boots and their fit and their on sale get them. if you didnt like their fit that much and are just getting them cause its end of season and their cheep wait till you find ones you really love

I love how comfortable my Salomons are and have never had an issue with the laces. After a few runs I usually have to tighten them but that's about it. My next pair will probably be Salomon again, but with a BOA system.

i have a pair of 2006 (i think) dialogues with the fast lacing system. i don't go through the top thing, because it's a pain in the ass for the most part. surprisingly enough, the boot still holds great because the laces lock on every eye.

they stay tight all day, are super warm, and pretty damn comfortable. i'd keep them but i'm in the market for a boot with a smaller footprint.

I think they work great. I've ridden 3 F series boots to completion. F20, F22, and F24. They fit sooo good and the smaller footprint and bonded liner give superb board feel. I don't have any problem with lace slippage until about day 50 like Rook said. If they fit your feet well you probably won't find any better. IMO they also have the best liner lace out there. that always locks up tight on a single pull and doesn't slip.

The F20 is the one I was looking at. I also wondered about that liner and if it's not removeable how well can you dry them, especially if you are going to be using them several days at a time?

salomon has 2 types of proprietary lacing systems: Powerlace Pro and Speed Power Lace.

Powerlace Pro is their dual zone system and the locks are rock solid.  I've been using this for 2 seasons (almost 50 days) and it has never slipped.  If you lock the zones correctly, you can get an extremely tight fit...even too tight, if you're not careful.  I just bought another pair. 

[If the REI salesman was indeed wearing the F20 (or any other higher-end salomon boot), maybe he is sort of a noob who doesn't realize that once you ride a few runs and everything settles, you're gonna want to re-adjust.  It's not the laces/lock, it's his feet, the liner and shell.]

Speed Power Lace is their low-end, one zone system.  I used the old version several seasons ago and it did slip.

Have the salomon F22 and they quick lacing is great. If they do ever pop out at the top, each of the side spots lock as well so it holds them in place

Don't approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from any side..

I have the F22 boots, and used the Dialogues before that. The lacing system is fast, and it gets my feet nice and snug. However, I have ripped the cord out of the handle on one of my boots, so they're just tied around it now, but it still holds my foot it very comfortably.

In the end, though, it's mostly because they fit my feet really well.
