The 2021 Nitro Thunder is often compared to being the skate shoe equivalent to a snowboard boot; offering you enough freedom for all-day comfort but still being responsive enough to handle wherever and whatever you want to ride. The freestyle-oriented flex pattern proves enough freedom for endless park laps but is still enough to cruise around groomers all day long (with throwing in every side hit along the way, let's get real here). An incredibly priced boot that still offers plenty of that famous Nitro boot technology, the Thunder gives you a lightweight, minimalistic feel without skipping out on performance.
Boot Type: Beginner/Intermediate All Mountain Freestyle
Boot Flex (1 = Soft / 10 = Stiff): 5/10
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 3 Liner
The Nitro Cloud 3 Liner is made from Thermacell material using Nitro-specific casts, which ensures a long-lasting fit and comfort with minimal fatigue. The Cloud 3 Liner also comes with an anatomical EVA footbed which reduces fatigue and increases comfort so you can ride better for longer. All Nitro liners are heat mouldable, 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.
DLS Liner Lacing
The Nitro DLS Liner Lacing system is directly connected to the liner for controlled lacing independent of the boot shell.
Re/Lace Liner Locker
The Re/Lace Liner Locker revolutionizes 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: EVA Outsole
This boot features a full EVA outsole, which provides great impact absorption and thermal insulation, while also reducing weight. This EVA outsole is reinforced with Rubber Impact Panels which are strategically placed on the outsole for added resistance, traction, and durability.
