onenerdykidDid you fall and/or smash the boot into something (rail, box, friend, etc.)? Aluminum buckles tend not to bend unless it is caused by impact damage of some sort.
Shoey-Skiheres some pics of the one buckle, i would take pics of both but the other one now fell off, (both the buckles ben the same way though)
C-BabyHow do you bend a buckle like that if you're just riding along? I think you're leaving something out of this story my friend. we here about JRA problems all the time here at the store. Rarely do they happen when you're just riding along.
However I've gotta say I feel for you. This boot has many problems. Hopefully they get them solved for production next season!
japanadaIt could have came unbuckled or unlatched and just gotten hung up in the snow, on a ski edge, some brush/trees, ect. Buckles brake and will need to be replaced. Be glad its just the bottom buckle and not a vital one when your out in the BC.
Shoey-Skiwhen you drop 350 on boots you don't expect them to break on your first 3 days of the season
BenWhit$350 is INCREDIBLY inexpensive for a ski boot. I understand that you're probably young and this seems like a lot of money relative to you, but if you look at some of the park specific boots out there, you could easily end up spending $600-$700
Shoey-SkiI know it's inexpensive compared to a lot of boots, but to a 16 year old that worked a summer job just to get new gear this year it's kinda bumming that they break that easy
