    Scott Boa

    Anyone have any experience with Scott boa shoes? Specifically the Elite and Trail? I'm looking for something to replace my Sidi's and I'd like something with a bit more walk ability. My snowboard boots use the BOA system and I dig it. I'd like to try them in a mountain bike shoe. Thanks v

    Thanks, good info. Is the Trail too soft? As in potential hot spots on long downhills? And is the walk factor of the Elite too low? Any ideas about sizing? Thanks.

    I currently have the Pro's and are fine for short walks, I would think the Elites would be great. They run a little bigger then some other brands (Shimano) by roughly a 1/4 size, hope that helps.
    It does help. Thanks. I've never really had problems with hotspots, but I've worn Sidi's for years. I do have concerns that too soft a shoe will create hotspots on long descents. Just need to decide between the Elites and the Specialized Rimes I'm eyeing on eBay. Thanks for your help.
