What do the “sliding masters” choose from the new gear that will be released this winter?If you listen to the voices of professional riders who use gear more than anyone else, you can imagine the feeling of use more concretely.So, I asked 14 riders why they chose their favorite gear.The eighth person is Ryo Aizawa.

"It slips almost every day during the season, so if it's too soft, it's easy to get tired. That's why I've always worn tough and supportive boots. TRAVIS seems to be stiff in DC, but I I've never felt stiff. Well, but if you're a Sunday border, you might feel a little stiff? But if you keep slipping hard, you need this much flex and toughness. By the way, when DC team riders gathered in the United States, when I saw my feet, everyone wore TRAVIS (laughs). Because it's BOA, it's easy to tighten and loosen, and there are two BOAs so you can tighten them separately. Well, no matter what kind of slip I do, I tighten both of them tightly to get solid support. Even if I tighten them tightly, I can do anything on the street, big jump, back country, anywhere, and the style It's easy to put out. Also, thanks to the zip-tightened cover, snow didn't come in even in the back country of Hokkaido. For me, the boots are so good that I can't find a bad place. "
