Wrapped up in this beautiful leather shell, the El Mejor sacrifices nothing in the pursuit of response, comfort, and good looks.
Boot Type: Advanced All Mountain
Boot Flex (1 = Soft / 10 = Stiff): 8/10
Lacing System: TLS 5 Twin Lacing System
The Nitro TLS 5 Twin Lacing System is one of the best speed lace systems on the market, with easy lace engagement and release, along with low abrasion Dyneema laces for long lasting, reliable performance. TLS 5 features two independent upper and lower lacing zones, so you can lock in your ideal fit in a flash, adjust your lacing without needing to step out of your bindings, and bail out of your boots in record time at the end of the day.
Liner: D3O Enhanced Cloud 10 Liner
The Nitro Cloud 10 Liner is the top tier liner from Nitro, providing more cushion and support than any other. Featuring D3O technology, this liner increases comfort and hardens up under impact, dispersing energy and instantly returning to its comfortable flexible state. This reduces fatigue, increases power, and allows you to ride harder for longer. All Nitro liners are heat mouldable, and while it isn't necessary, a heat mould can give you a more custom fit from day 1 as opposed to wearing the boot in. The Cloud 10 Liner comes with a triple density Ortholite Footbed, which offers superior shock absorption and energy return with minimal compression, so your footbed will perform consistently for the entire life of your boot. It is also quick drying, extremely lightweight, and has an anti-microbial coating, making your boots smell better, feel better, and last longer.
ILS Liner Lacing
The Nitro ILS Liner Lacing system features a lacing harness directly connected to the boot shell that snugly wraps around the liner, firmly securing it in the shell for strong hold and a precise fit.
Re/Lace Liner Locker
The Re/Lace Liner Locker revolutionises how a liner lace functions. During a day of snowboarding, your boots are going to loosen. Your foot settles, your boot expands, it happens. With the Re/Lace Liner Locker, once the laces are locked in at the start of the day all you need to do is pull the liner lace tab to retighten your liner, without ever needing to undo your boots.
The Therminator Shield is a thin thermal layer between sole and liner that reflects heat back into your boot, keeping your feet warm all day.
Cushioning / Traction: Vibram Outsole made of Icetrek Vibram Compound with D3O Shock Absorption
Designed specifically for enhanced traction in colder temperatures, Icetrek Vibram Compound has a special softness that allows it to grip snow and ice better, while still being gentle on indoor surfaces and resistant to dirt and moisture. This technology in conjunction with an extra grippy sole design make this one of the best snowboard boots for hiking. This outsole is combined with an EVA midsole, which reduces weight, increases impact absorption, and aids in heat retention.
The best shock absorbing technology on the planet, this air suspension system from Nitro keeps your heels from getting bruised on hard landings, and noticeably increases comfort without compromising response or control.
This boot features a flexible panel at the ankle for consistent flex without buckling and more response without adding bulk.
New Internal Ankle Support
This brand new internal ankle support system puts an anatomically moulded plate over the top of your ankle, evenly distributing lace pressure and giving you a more precise fit.
