The 2023 Nitro Rival was designed to specifically last and stay more comfortable longer than any boot on the market, while still keeping high end performance at the forefront. The Rival allows for unlimited exploration all over the mountain and let you push yourself even further than before thanks to the Cloud 5 liner, increased ankle retention and out of the box comfort all season. A mid flexing shell with a lightweight outer midsole and grippy outsole, the Rival will make sure your feet will outlast the competition all day on the mountain.
Boot Type: All Mountain Freestyle
Boot Flex (1 = Soft / 10 = Stiff): 6/10
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: Cloud 5 Liner
The Nitro Cloud 5 Liner is super lightweight and comfortable, and features reinforced panels located around the heel for enhanced heel hold and durability. All Nitro liners are heat-moldable, and while it isn't necessary, a heat mold can give you a more custom fit from day 1 as opposed to wearing the boot in.
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.
Cushioning / Traction: Rubber Outsole
This boot features a full Rubber outsole that provides great impact absorption and thermal insulation, while also reducing weight.
