Nitro Team TLS 2019
The 2019 Nitro Team snowboard boot is the pick of the best that just keeps on getting better, and being the favourite boot of Nitro Team riders, you know this is something special. Packed with tech and as comfortable as a cloud, the Nitro Team has the perfect flex for creative all mountain freestyle riding, with enough response to lay down hard carves and powder slashes, and enough freedom to play around in the park and take on every sidehit in sight. Super easy to put on, take off, and lace up, incredibly comfortable and impact resistant, and now featuring a lighter midsole, a grippier outsole, and a Nitro air suspension dampening system, the Team is kind to your foot but can destroy the mountain with ease. This Nitro team favourite is also a staff favourite here at MSC, so we can personally vouch for this boot being one of the best performers on the market.
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 9 Liner
The Nitro Cloud 9 Liner is one of the best liners from Nitro, with a lightweight, supportive fit that will blow almost any other liner out of the water. 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 9 Liner comes with a dual 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.
Shell: Armoured Spine
This boot features an anatomically shaped and 3D moulded heel reinforcement that provides even and consistent boot flex along with long-lasting heel fit.
This boot features a flexible panel at the ankle for consistent flex without buckling and more response without adding bulk.
